Happy New Year to you!!

I just love new years day don't you?! I love the fresh beginnings; the anticipation of what lies ahead. It's a clean slate to make new goals and set out to achieve them.
Do you have any resolutions or goals you want to achieve this year? I want to follow through better on things I've put my hand up for. I also want to be better about calling my friends. I have an aversion to using the phone...I can't explain it, but I have never been one to chat on the phone a lot. But I want to be better about that. Other than that, I wouldn't mind another little MacLean around the house! ;) That would be nice.

Since I'm married, and Edward is taken *sigh*, I created an imaginary boy toy today. Meet Ian. Isn't he dreamy?? I adored him from the moment I laid eyes on him. He's the male version of Anya over at The Greeting Farm (formally known as Pink Poison). I kept him simple (since that seems to be working for me this week!) and added the twine and button I recycled from a Pier One candle I received at Christmas. Love finds like that!

Enjoy your New Years Day whatever it is that you're doing. Hubby and I are going on a date tonight! :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FRIEND!!! Saw this on TGF blog and I LOVE IT! This is SO cute...the coloring you did on his hat is AMAZING!

I was SO impressed to see that the button and twine came from Pier 1...I was admiring it and wondering where I could get one LOL! I do that too, with ribbon. GREAT find!
