Yay! Happy New Year!!
Woke up at 5am today to freezing rain which means I'm waiting it out at home on the couch under the weight of a leany 7-yr-old and the entertainment of a pro-wrestler-turned-not-all-that-entertaining-tooth-fairy. I haven't closed the shop due to weather, yet, so I'm anxious, but honestly, I could get used to all this kid on the couch time.
Really, the day's been pretty good so far. Checked Twitter when I woke up (it's what i do when I can't sleep) and discovered Oh My! Handmade Goodness mentioned us in a post about some of their inspiring (really? thank you!) followers. It's awesome to be picked, but even more awesome to be grouped with such cool peeps. I'm a huge Paper Parasol Press fan, I really wanna take a painting class with Mati Rose McDonough, and The Long Thread is one of my own go-to inspiration blogs. I've visited the other mentioned blogs and shops and now I'm following them, too - so cool! Add Oh My! Handmade Goodness to your Reader as well - I can't tell you all the great ideas I've already gotten.
And I guess that's all I have for today. A little later, we'll heat up some frozen Trader Joe's appetizers - we're partial to their fish sticks for some reason - and tip a glass or two of sparkling cider while we watch yet another Godzilla flick or MST3000 episode. There won't be a band or a cocktail anything, but we've had a whirlwind roller coaster ride of a 2010 and this night might just end up being the best NYE ever.
