Waiting for the new year

We had a quiet supper, and are getting ready to watch a movie to bring in the New Years.

I am trying to work on a few things, so that I will have a small finish on New Years Day before we start the movie.

I am actually already thinking of Christmas presents for the next year. Some are well started for certain people, so it should be doable. Is that a word?

I love the new year, I do make plans and notes and work on them. I love a fresh start.

Well off to work on a little project.

Transformer 3, not my choice for a movie, but it will be ok. It's just nice to have a quiet night.

cocktail pics

aren't these great? I bought these at a craft show, they are beautiful cocktail sticks. I have been making these for gifts. Actually, not a real fun craft. It's very hard to find the little picks, and its hard to find beads that will fit. I have bought whole strings aftermaking sure they will fit. Then, half of them on the string are actually too small. But they are beautiful. I need to make some for me. Yes, I have given all of them as gifts, so I need to make me some.

fairy garden

Have you heard about Fairy Gardens? You decorate little flower pots with whimsy and color. I had a ball doing these. I just need to order a fairy or two. I couldn't find one locally.

Can you see the tiny little bird bath. It actually has water in it.
