first day of the year, time for fresh beginnings and turning over leaves etc etc, so I'm feeling inspired.

I took the christmas tree decorations down today, and couldn't resist one last photo of my little tree. It looked strangely naked without baubles and boxes and felt ornaments, just green and wearing a little gold star.

I have given up on New Years Resolutions, as I usually make rash promises to myself that never quite work out (I'm going to learn Italian! I will only eat chocolate on Sundays!), but here are some more vague and attainable ones..

This year I will: Watch more clouds and less television, read more books and less newspapers, eat more fruit and less peanut butter and jam sandwiches. I want to give myself time to create and explore, and give less time to worry and stress. I want to discover new music and feel new things. I want to not be afraid of new things, and people and places. I want to love more, and learn, and live.. (that's all!)

This blog is about creating beautiful things and sharing, about giving myself time to sit and think about what's going on, and appreciate all the sweetness.
