Almost 2012 Quilled Snowflake

Less than 30 mins 'til New Years 2012 as I am typing this. Have a happy, happy new year to you and yours!

Here's a quilled snowflake for you!

New Year's Eve!

Another year is coming to an end. What are you looking forward to in the upcoming year? I hope to get into better shape, grow as an artist, and have a more positive outlook on life. To learn from regrets and also to be able to look past that--be free of old worries. I normally do not care to mark the new year as a starting point for a new approach to certain aspects in life because it is, in fact, a regular day in life, but this year I am attracted to the motivational trick it plays with my head when everyone else is hyped. Let's hope I come through in the end!

It is no surprise to me anymore that I prioritize everything else before the blog. I would love to get better at integrating this into my regular routine. How do all of you bloggers do it?! Would love to bum some of the energy off of you! Tonight I feel a bit more drawn to blogging, but I don't know why. Maybe I saw Dec 31 and felt the need to get in one last entry for the year. Who knows...

So tonight I want to show you one of the few items I made for the Christmas season 2011:

What I have here is a quilled snowflake card. The sentiment was wet embossed and glitter was dusted on the snowflake itself. Below is a closer look.

Best wishes to all of you out there!
