new year, new box
the gift boxes from anthropologie this year were way too craftable for me to leave alone. my magazines and paper scraps started yelping the minute they saw one and instantly started jockeying for a spot on the box. the scissors and glue peeked out of their storage bins to see what the devil was going on and suddenly i had a new years eve activity on my hands. after that i worked out for an hour, had three glasses of wine and then this tired crafter zonked out at 10:30. the new year started off splendidly - i found out that etsy tweeted my "this is the year" doodle and then featured it on its facebook page, which led to a nice surge for my little doodleshop this weekend. many thanks, etsy!
as for the resolutions, did you have to make it so difficult? they were all great, worthy, admirable, funny; it made me indecisive. i erred on the side of largesse and chose five: three random and two non random. the winners are: 1) cath, 2) shelly, 3) eden, 4) pattie, and 5) the runaway winner was shelley malone, with her vow to stay on course being awesome, and to take it up a notch by doing epic shit. may we all heed her advice! winners, please e-mail me your addresses at artsyville (at) gmail (dot) com and i'll send your doodles on their way. thanks everyone for sharing your plans and wishes for 2011. hoping your box fills up with wonderful things this year!
