I am writing from Sunday River, ME today. 🙂
Thanksgiving and Christmas are wonderful traditions. We get to see family and friends, we send cards to wish everyone “Happy Holidays!”, we give and receive gifts, we put lights everywhere to fend off the darkness that comes earlier every day… Because it is very busy for most of us,
except for my dear friend J. who always inspires me to slow down and not succumb to the frenzy, the quiet that follows the holidays is ever so delightful! And leaving the house for a few days really allows for breaking away from the humdrum of daily life. We packed up and left Boston yesterday to go to Maine. Not much snow, but enough for our son to learn to snowboard, and for our daughters to go down the slopes a few times.
As for me, I have decided to stay behind and enjoy a day of reading and writing, hence the picture above, taken this morning of all the art supplies brought by Elliot. I realize that I have not posted anything in a while. I have just read today in un-blog-une-fille.com that a good blogger should post at least 3 times a week, that the best day to post is Tuesday, and that long posts (3,000 to 10,000 words) are read more than the short ones (0 to 1,000 words)… I may have found my first three new-year resolutions right there 🙂
That said, let me show you some pics of my new collection of cute pie-holders: the first series has a lime-green lining. I fell in love with grey fabric, with tiny houses outlined in white. It makes me think of the “vieux quartiers” in Paris, or somehow, of San francisco…
The second series has a nice orange lining. I am not sure which lining I like best. They are both really fun and whimsical! 😉
Also, here is the big bag that took me so long to complete! I am using it to carry my sewing machine to sewing class, until I get a rolling case.
I wish you a wonderful new year, full of love, joy, and creativity!
