Oh hello there, 2015

The new year is well under way and it has been cold here in Iowa. So I have been spending most of my free time working on knitting or crocheting projects. I have actually finished more projects this month than I did last year, but alas I forgot to take pictures of most of them for giving them to their new owners.

One very true fact about me is creating makes me happy. If I'm not making something or working on a project I feel dull and lifeless. This year I am going to try out a few new types of projects that I have been wanting to do, but just never found the time to start them. And I'm going to do the projects even if they fail miserably. (that's the hardest part)

On Instagram some creative ladies I follow have been talking about One Little Word - #OLW. This is the idea that you come up with one word that is your mantra for the year. A word that describes what you want to change about yourself or do different for that year. This year my #OLW is BRAVE.  I want to be brave in my choices, my actions, and my voice. I want to do something, even if it doesn't work, even if I fail. So when I question myself I'm going to be BRAVE and just do it. Especially when working creatively on my projects.

I hope everyone is off to a great new year and finds you safe and well.

Visiting Santa

Yesterday we went to see Santa. Riley was very excited to see him and tell him everything. Everything that has happened at school, what he wants for Christmas, what Max wants for Christmas, etc. (I had to cut him off, poor Santa) As you can see from below Santa is serious business. Even though the line was super long, it was totally worth the wait.
