Hello 2020!

2020 has been great so far! Although it seems I accidentally fell asleep at 7 and missed the fireworks! Oops! What a start!

I had the day off of work today, so I took down the Christmas tree to get a new start, cleaned the house, and then spent most of the day crafting! I even got a run in! I feel so accomplished this year already!

There are a lot of goals I have for this year: be ridiculously colourful, fight my anxiety, less tv/computer, and be positive! But my biggest resolution again is to just simply BE CREATIVE!

I finished up a knitted sweater for Sugar that I had started a couple of weeks ago. I used a simple pet sweater pattern which is made for tiny puppies that I made a bit bigger to fit an 8 pound cat (you can find the pattern here!). But so far Sugar is NOT a fan and I can’t get her to model it! So you’re going to have to do with a pic of a unicorn in a sweater instead!

A while back I picked up an amazing book called Craft-a-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects by Sarah Goldschadt that I’m planning to make use of this year as well. I LOVE this book so far as it’s exactly what it says on the tin – a quick craft (jewellery, home decor, cute toys, etc) for every day of the year. Each week is broken up into a theme, for example this week is Snowflakes! It’ll be great if I hit an inspiration slump again and it’ll hopefully spur on some more projects! I’m going to do my best to work cover to cover. Today’s project was making this really cute Snowflake Barette that I’m going to wear to work tomorrow:

So much I still want to do today! Trying to squeeze in some more fun before back to work tomorrow, as I feel really reinvigorated! Lots of love and wishes to you all this year!!

Day 12 – Your Favourite Childhood Book

Baby-Sitters Club!

I was completely totally obsessed with the Baby-Sitters Club books by Ann M. Martin! I remember begging my mom to go to the library all the time to absorb as many of them as possible (and there were TONS!) Then would dream about the day I would get to babysit myself and have all these wild adventures (still can’t believe babysitting is not all big money, whirlwind romance, and busting crime)! I love spotting the BRIGHT covers when thrifting and then have to buy them – still a fun read.

I also really loved anything Roald Dahl, Rainbow Fish (that cover is forever etched in my mind!), and iSpy.
