Hello, 2011!

Sorry for the hiatus, folks. It has been a busy past couple of weeks filled with holiday parties, baking, boozing, and coughing. Yes. I have been a very ill girl.

I am super behind on my laptop bag, but have purchased a lovely navy blue coat to use for fabric. The leather piece is proving to be difficult. I want something soft and pliable, but the thrift stores are giving me stiff and smelly. I WILL post Sunday night and it WILL show progress. It takes me a while to get back into it once I have been out of it…. since I have been drugged on Nyquil for three weeks solid!

To entertain you wonderful people, I wanted to share a few of my favorite things from 2010 as well as what I am looking forward to in 2011. This will be done in lists. These are located below.

I also threw in some Holiday pictures to prove I haven’t just been sitting on my bottom eating Ferrero Rocher.

Me & My Friend Pam on NYE

I wanted to thank all of you for being GREAT readers and for helping me choose my projects. I figured out how to make a poll so you will not have to leave comments anymore to vote (AWESOME, right?), and I also have got a couple great interviews with killer-crafty ladies planned! 2011 is going to be a great year!

      Haha, thanks Linz. You do keep me occupied with Sci-fi and fantasy book series. I am about halfway through “Voyager” and can’t wait to start the next one already. 🙂
