Tonight the Sun will meet with Jupiter making this the "luckiest day of the year" (quoting Susan Miller) therefore use it wisely. I was searching through old work and found this piece that I had done for a past January 23, and thought it very apropos to post it for today. Daffodils- I always feel so lucky when I spot them in the Spring. Unfortunately we have little while before these beauties reveal themselves, but until then, this will do.
Over new year I was able to go to an amazing place that felt as close to heaven on earth as you can get. My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary, so we wanted to do something really special. We stayed at a very small inn in Big Sur, California and it was divine (And that is an understatement). Within the first five minutes of arriving, I had a glass of champagne in my hands...I knew immediately that I was in the right place. If that doesn't convince you, look at the photos. It is very eco friendly to boot. The infinity pool hangs over the ocean and some of the rooms have grass roofs. I have some beautiful paintings from here, but they aren't finished. Yikes. The story of my life.
I'm back after my extended vacation. Last month was jam packed with gift-making, traveling, painting, and many other events, so not much happened on my little blog, other than showing off my calendar, which it did pretty well. A huge thank you to everyone who bought a calendar! I am so excited by the rave reviews;) I have one New Years resolution this year, but I am not telling yet, because it is a pretty big one. I will drop hints here and there, but for now it is secret. I try to post about all of the crafty things I have been doing, like dollmaking, embroidery, and crocheting. Until then enjoy 2009! Oh and be sure to read your January horoscope by Susan Miller. She is absolutely fabulous.
