Bonne Année

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones.

I am starting the new year with some amazing projects that will be keeping me occupied behind the scenes but have some great stuff coming up shortly as well that I will be sharing soon.

I also cannot thank you enough for your continued support, beautiful compliments and love!! My blog alone is going into its 9th year as is my business and being able to do what I love each and everyday. The passion that I have for my creativity and sharing it with you has not changed a bit since the day I started, if anything it has grown stronger. I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store.

I also will try to keep my resolutions to a simple phrase, "do everything with love", I can apply that with everything I do and I used that last year instead of specifics and ended up with less disappointment and pressure, but strength and success in going after my goals as they came.
So with love, let's do this!

For the first post this year and it being a snowy lazy weekend, I thought I would share with you my reading picks for this month and also a few items that I am using for the start of the year to keep me organized.

I use that along with these month by month calendars from Moleskine for the daily to do's.
Then with keeping my online and business world organized I love to grab a few calendars from Sugar.Paper that Target stocks each year.

Last but not least these adorable skinnier then normal pencils from Kate Spade keep it fun. Paper/Pencil girl I will always be.

"Tender" ~ Journal Poems

*

Sleeping past silenced alarms inching towards skin rather then the safe wall of withdrawal
Content turn of virtue
Continuing in motion in content
Halted friendless due to preferred leisure
Warm ruthful breaths...
Response to ego and shift love to yours truly
A lens, nature and glistening haze of flurry
Calm duration before frost-bound
The tender now mirthful...

Darlings my poor blog! I miss it! With the shift of easier posting on my other social networks and a crazy few months that I have been working behind the scenes the blog seems to be set aside. I will try to hopefully get on to obsessing about it again, which I actually do in my head, but just need to put that all into a regular thing again. Anyhooooo.. I was updating my journal, which is my book of everything, lists, notes on culture, inspirations and my personal thoughts and once in awhile poems that find way between it all. This one I found from January of this year. It inspired me to continue to practice and add some more before years end and a new journal begins.

I hope all is well!! xo

"Dame 2"

 photo Dame2SM_zpsd18e1888.jpg

An older illustration that I came across while organizing my files on my overcrowded desktop. Gave it a little facelift from where I left it a few years ago and now feel it is finally finished, ( again! )

Starting the week with a ton of catch up as last week we lost a dear pet, our cat Oliver unexpectedly. I had to take a few days off and regroup. Though I must admit, staying distracted and busy helps me most which I am doing today, otherwise I am in my head too deeply thinking about how sad it really is. But yes it is important to feel it all when you fell it, otherwise it has a way of forcing its way out on its own.

I will be back shortly with a night #MusicMonday playlist..
