Hello Friends. Can you believe it is 2011? Time does fly. I'm hoping the first month of the new year has been a good one for all of you. There is just a couple of weeks left in January and its soon time to think about Valentine's Day. Love, hearts, and chocolate!

I'm looking forward to a fulfilling, creative year ahead. January has been quite busy with friends and family and haven't had much time to work in the studio. I'm definitely not complaining though. I love spending time with the kids, on warm, cozy afternoons hiding from the winter cold, soaking in every moment spent with my mom, enjoying lunch for two with the love of my life, and a fantastic trip NYC with amazing friends.

I'm not one for New Year resolutions, although I do have certain goals and desires I would like to see done in 2011. There is a running list in my head of all the things I want to do, but will not bore you with that list.
My biggest wish though, is to share with you, each idea and project I manage to accomplish, throughout the year.

I'm anxious to get back in my studio and start creating again. I woke up the other morning with many ideas floating in my head. This happens to me quite often. I either go to bed dreaming of fresh creative ideas or awake in the morning-- my brain swarming with new ideas to stitch. There are many sketchbooks floating around the house, but of course, I always forget to keep one by my bed.
Just the other morning, I awoke with thoughts of new garlands and I jumped out of bed and quickly sketched my visions before they were lost with the many other ideas that have plummeted into the depths of the black whole in my brain.

Now, I'm itching to sneak some time in the studio downstairs---ready to see my visions come to life.

Have a lovely day.

What a lovely stitched piece you've posted. The flower color and fabric is gorgeous.
I'm hoping for a more creative 2011, too. So many ideas, now to put them into reality.

I found your blog on Pinterest and I've been enjoying my visit! You're very creative and I love your style. I visited your shop...your Posie Pockets and Memoir Keepers are amazing! Actually everything is wonderful.

This flower collage is so pretty. I love the colors.

Thanks for sharing your treasures with us. I'll be back for sure!
