Welcome to 2011

Happy New Year! I know we are already four days into the New Year...but best wishes to you all! I hope the Christmas Season was a delight for all. {I know mine was...it went by way too fast!}

Usually, after Christmas is some what of a letdown for me. I take all my decorations down, my house feels extra bleak, and I have one long month ahead of me. However, this year, I am looking at January in a whole new light. I have a fresh new year ahead of me, and to me, that is very encouraging and rejuvenating. I've made some strong and realistic goals that I am determined not to abandon by the end of the month.

I also am excited for my plans for the shop/blog. I have a bunch of ideas floating in my head that just need to be put on paper and organized into action. Along with making personal goals this year, I made some for my shop/sewing life. One goal involves my fabric stash. My stash is...um...let me just say...is getting a little large. My goal is to use my stash and NOT to buy any new fabric UNLESS I absolutely need it to finish a project. (Of course, I am allowing myself to buy fabric to make certain items in my shop.) I know this will be challenging, but I am excited to see what fun things I can make with my stash. Does anyone want to join with me on this? I am thinking of doing a series of posts on the blog called 'Use that Stash!' ...seems catchy right? :)

So here is to a fresh New Year waiting to be made into the best one yet!

Thanks for reading,


p.s. - Does saying '2011' sound extra futuristic/kinda weird to anyone else? 2010 rolled right off the tongue. It may take me a couple weeks to get use to saying 2011.  What is the general consensus out there, are you saying 'twenty eleven' or 2,011?


  1. Happy New Year to you!! I am kind of optimistic about this year too. After looking back at some of my projects from this last year I felt like I actually did accomplish some things. Amazing. I hope you have a wonderful 2011

  2. Hi, I just discovered your jump; count playmat on moda bake blog. A VERY GOOD IDEA to create items only with your stash and to blog about. Maybe I join you...
