For some reason, bowling sounds so dorky, but WOW we had lots of fun! And to top it off, do you recall the post about my long lost high school friend Irene? I picked up some recycled buttons and rickrack from her via Saskatoon Freecycle, and we had a little reunion right there on her front street. Well she now does books for my husband's hobby store, so I got to hang out and bowl with her at the staff party! We swapped gifts. Irene wanted chocolate, so she got $15 dollars worth of chocolate from me, plus a movie pass. Look what she got me!

See the curved tip? They are embroidery scissors. Awesome. I have new embroidery books too now. Maybe someday in the near future I'll make a lovely embroidered something-er-other, and Karen from the blog Contemporary Embroidery will come over to my blog and say, "WOW did you make that!?". (hehehe, yeah right Monika!)
Yesterday, I woke to this.

So pretty. Sigh. The color changes are so subtle. Come to think of it, that sky sure resembles Mandy's piece! That put me in a terrific mood, and so tonight I'm having some friends and neighbors over to celebrate New Year's Eve at our house for the first time ever. I'm quite excited about this! The food is all ready, and I'm out to chop wood for the fire. : ) Now that I have my photos in order, expect my posts to be much more eye candy in 2011!

To everyone who inspires me,
to each and every one of you who support me in my craft,
for the cards and the comments and the advice and the appreciation,
I wish you a very happy evening,
and a new year full of peace and joy and delightful discoveries!
Thank you for being here for me.
