Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everybody :)
I hope 2014 will be a wonderful year for all of you. I am very excited about all the things I want to do this new year in creative projects and in my personal goals. I'm definitely not getting any younger and I want to get out of my bad habits and into healthier ones, even though they typically require more discipline :)
There's nothing more hopeful than a fresh new start!

New year new projects

Hi Everyone! I hope y'all had a Merry Christmas with your loved ones! I had a great time with my family and I'm so glad to have a couple days off just to rest and relax. Even though this year has been very difficult at times, I have been reminded how significant are the everyday things we sometimes take for granted, and for that I will be more mindful and forever grateful. I will happily greet 2014, a new year full of promise :)

  I am very excited for 2014 because I have some new ideas and projects that I can't wait to work on.
 I have been wanting to get iPad for quite awhile now and I finally decided to take the plunge :)
I have started sketching and I'm really excited to start experimenting and develop new techniques.

 Also I have been working on some new ideas with fabric and  I'm super excited to share more about this later.

 I have been struggling trying to work out how projects would fall into place and I finally had some light bulb moments and things are finally starting to move forward :)

I feel like Gru in this awesome scene from Despicable Me.

Are you excited for 2014? Do you have any fun plans for the new year?

Ice Storm Thoughts

Not sure if you heard or were affected by the winter storm late last week, but down here in Texas we got a few inches of ice and were stuck inside for a few days. After a couple days I was able to get out of the house and fresh veggies were scarce in the grocery store. I decided I really wanted to make some homemade soup, I love celery and carrots that and chicken stock is really all you need for a soup foundation. You could just let your imagination and taste buds run free!

the possibilities are endless

Anyway like I said veggies were scarce and they only had shredded carrots left, which I normally never buy, but there thin shape got me thinking about all the delicious possibilities.

I was also watching a lot of TV and the actors are doing the talk show rounds for their upcoming movies. I'm really excited about "Inside Llewyn Davis". Coen Brothers Film check. Great actors check. Amazing soundtrack performed by said actors with music by T Bone Burnett check. Rambling side note T Bone Burnett also did the music for Walk the Line another music movie I love! Remember how great Joaquin and Reese's performance were? Yeah, that's another reason I'm really excited. I love a movie plot line surrounded by great music. And the fact that Oscar Isaac the guy that plays Llewyn Davis, kinda looks like Nick from New Girl ;)

   Anyway... I'm also excited about the Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig, kinda getting a fanciful Eternal Sunshine vibe... yay :)   What upcoming movies are you excited about? Happy Friday to you!
