Happy New Year! I hope you all have had a festive and relaxing holiday time.
A sampling of a few projects that have been keeping these hands busy:
My kids love The Nutcracker. They have been to the production put on by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal and their little heads are full of dancing magical images. My talented Greg made them each a figurine for the Christmas tree this season out of modelling clay. I was up late painting them to have them wrapped under the tree Christmas morning.
And I have been doing more. More sewing that I will post on in the coming weeks, working on a new fabric collection that I am crossing my fingers and toes will be produced, baking, baking, baking & not cooking much (Christmas dinner was non-traditional and actually really fun and relaxed … sushi … and to my surprise, it was actually just as festive as turkey), sledding with the kids, and generally trying to keep warm.
I wish you all a year of creativity, trying new things, and not taking matters too seriously!
