Three new

I've got three new pieces finished since my last post.

Self-portrait. I think I love this one the most because it is the most personal and because it incorporates my insane love for discarded and old objects.:

I'm home today. It was predicted that we would be slammed with 2 feet of snow but the reality is that we ended up with 2 inches. I love a good snow storm and I'm disappointed that the snow did not deliver. But, at the same time, I'm ready for the coming of spring. More so this year than any other year I can remember. I'm planting the ideas for a new life during this time of cold hibernation; it's the spring that moves me in to real action.

The New Year

It feels odd to be back here after so much time away. Every time I think I'm done with my blogging, I remember how it changed my life in so many good ways when blogging was all the rage. I figure blogging will make a comeback one day; I just have to be patient.

So I ended last year the same way I always end a year; I tell myself that I'll change and I come up with a list a mile long of all the projects I'll do and new paths I'll dare to boldly explore. But here I am, 19 days in and I'm feeling lost in all of that scheming. Maybe it's the cold, dreary weather. Maybe it's just me. I have to push myself so hard to get motivated. But as I write this, I realize that I have accomplished a few things so far.

1. I've been eating meatless since January 1st and my body feels better for it.

2. I've made quite a few new necklaces. There are so many more in the birthing process. Now....how to figure out getting them out there in the world.

It's been a tough start but the year's still young...
