ahhh! hear that? it’s the sweet sound of relaxation. my little family and i had a fantastic christmas weekend.
we had fun giving and receiving and spending lots of time with each other. my husband and i even got a little alone time on sunday! 5 hours together – the longest we’ve been without lola since she was born (i think) 18 months ago.
on sunday night, i took all my christmas cash and bought myself a shiny new camera. i’m having so much fun playing with all the settings & experimenting with the manual mode. definitely the best camera i’ve ever owned. you can see some of my results above! i’m hoping that this camera allows me to bring you some more personal posts – showing you how i incorporate handmade into my own life – in the new year!
speaking of the new year, i shared a guest post in jen’s “special topics in calamity business” series at indie fixx today detailing 3 of my indie biz blogging goals for 2010. the post is also a giveaway for not one, not two, but three copies of my ebook, 52 weeks of blogging your passion.
if you’d like some specialized info, a lot of inspiration, and a kick in the pants to help you blog your way through 2010 – a great resolution! – you can find out more about it here.
coming up in just a bit, there’s a guest post from nicole at lillyella to show you how to craft those holiday (or anytime!) greeting cards into a lovely keepsake ornament. you didn’t miss cyd converse’s guest post about new year’s eve entertaining *handmade style* yesterday, did you?
