For me, December is the most difficult month of the year to keep inspired and get work done. The excitement of Christmas and spending extra time with family always creeps in and takes precedence over my daily to-do list. But you know what? I don’t mind one bit. Last Christmas was the first one without my dad, which made it pretty crappy. This year though, we were all feeling the holiday spirit again. It was refreshing. I decorated my apartment – even putting lights on the toilet. Yep, the toilet. Among all the decorations, I made a few beautiful ring pillows for winter couples, saw my name in the index of a book, ate way too many cookies, and drank too much wine on New Year’s Eve.
- My crossstiched iphone case is looking mighty fine! (Complete with cute, little animation)
- I sent out some watercolored Holiday cards for the annual Brooklyn Bride card swap.
- Meg’s book, A Practical Wedding, is out! I was honored to be able to contribute a few sentences on wedding blog drain (pg 110). I’ll be designing the Brooklyn book launch party too! Yay! It’s free! Double Yay! RSVP here.
- My business cards came in. They are thick and luxurious and shiny.
