New Years

New years eve is a time to reflect on the past year, and recognize the good and bad of it. It is a day to start new traditions and continue old ones. It is a time to create goals for the next 365 days, and start trying to keep to them. It is the one day of the year when you are ending one, and starting another. This new years eve, I am with my two amazing friends, Suzanne and Leora. Being with them is very special to me, and I greatly appreciate it. I am going to make this shirt and sweet. Have a good night. See you next year.

2012 Idea List

For this post, I was having trouble deciding, a how to or just an ordinary post? But after thinking it through, I decided to make it just a post for one simple reason. It is a project that has a deeper meaning than just an art project. It is something that took time, most of which was used thinking. Now I will explain what it is...

While reading one of my favorite blogs, I saw that she put ideas for the new year on flashcards and hung them up. Hers, I believe, were plain doodles, each that stood for someone, I guess. I put a twist on this. Here is how I did it...

1) I made a simple chart on Pages and filled each one in with something I wanted to do in the new year. They can be simple and short, or more in detail and long, as long as they fit into a 3x3 chart box.
2) I print them out. I madde about 48 of them...
3) I cut each one out. (it is easier to just cut them on eachother.)
4) using ordinary scotch clear tape, I lined them up on my wall. To make it easier, I drew lines wi a pencil first.

...And that is it!

Here are some ideas that I mentioned. But remember, be creative!

Cook a 5 star meal that consists of an appetizer, main coarse, and dessert for someone special.

Make more fuzzy, home made pillows. Give them to your friends and family.

Bake cookies and bring them for everyone on a cold, bitter day.

Visit the old people and record some stories. Then treasure them.

Press and frame the first 2012 flowers. Make them look nice and pleasant, and hang them up on a wall.

Here is a picture... I think it catches the eye and just looks cool in general...


Best Friends

Hey everyone! I know I have not been blogging for so lo, I have been working on this decorating project for a new post, so I decided to make a small post until it arrives. It is about best friends and what they are. I hope you enjoy, and can connect this to a best friend that you have...

Best friends. BFFS. Besties. BFFLS. Whatever you call them, they are simply you best friends. Imagine life without someone special there to guide you, hold your hand in tough times, give you advice, or just talk to. It seems like a pretty difficult thing. For as long as I can remember, I would not be able to keep a smile on my face without my best friends. They come in a car, a train, even a plane, to see you. They are devoted and committed to being there for you. They help you, and expect nothing big in return. They are truly your best friends. 
A fun time, a laugh, or even just a simple grin, they give you these things. They keep you on your track, and even if they don’t  always enjoy listening to everything, they still smile and nod, to show support. They inspire you to do things that you didn’t think you would ever do. They can total transform some part of you. They are best friends.
But it’s not only a one way road. You must be there for them, you must want to help them. They appreciate everything that you do for them, and you must appreciate what they do for you. It’s a give and take relationship. That is a best friend.
