We rang the New Year in at home where it was safe & sound. Unless you were an animal and didn't want to wear a new year's hat and have your picture made. LOL
I wanted a festive and fun picture for New Years so I went to party city and purchased a scene setter background, a "crystal ball" balloon, some party hats for all (including our animals). Got prettied up, put it all together and wa-la. We have some awesome fun pictures to remember ringing in the New Year 2013. You have to have willing participants to go along with your crazy Lucy antics (my poor fiance) Here is a picture of the stuff I bought for my NYE picture. Being creative is not always about having to get out the bottle of glue and lots of supplies and take hours making something. Sometimes it is about using your imagination and putting some stuff together. Which is what I did for our fabulous NYE pic which I think turned out great! (look under the about me tab to see the final picture).
I also plan on starting a memory jar today. Next year we will be able to look back on our year by emptying out the jar and going through what we put inside. At the end I plan on making a scrapbook out of what is in the jar.
Today we went to Anthropologie @ Lenox Mall. Wow I love that place. It is waaayyy too expensive for me. However in the coming days I plan on making my own Anthropologie knock off jewelry holding. Yep, saw one for $98 and I thought, hmmm I think I can make one. Of course if you have ever done a craft project sometimes (ok a lot of times) they end up taking a lot more time than you thought and costing you more money. LOL. But it is lots of fun & hey you made it!!
