Okay, so maybe my title was a little dramatic. I was only referring to getting rid of stuff as one of my New Year's resolutions. I was able to finally throw away the gloves with holes in them (having one cold finger on a winter day is very annoying, but I suppose an optimist would say at least you have nine warm ones). I was able to put the gloves we don't use in the give away pile, but for some reason I am stumped on what to do with the pair-less gloves in the photo above. Maybe it's because I still can't believe the ending of Castaway (you know - with Tom Hanks and the Volleyball).
Another resolution I made is to turn my original designs into patterns. I started with something simpler - my dragonfly magnet that can also be turned into a broach.
I plan on moving onto my wallet, then a few purses and hopefully have time for a few more original designs.
Someone I am definitely keeping is my husband (of 9 years this spring). We rang in the New Year with a couple of friends while watching some live music. We made it all the way to 12:30 - boy how things have changed...
Here's to 2012!
