Wait... what?!

Somehow it is New Year's Eve. I missed something somewhere along the line - I thought I still had a few days until 2010. I am supposed to start my two week fast tomorrow but that will have to be postponed until Monday. Too many eating opportunities this weekend. :)

So, I won't bore you all with my end of year wrap up/regrets/joys/blah/blah/blah. All I will say is that 2009 was a stressful year for me. Good in many ways, but very stressful in others and I am more than ready to kiss this year bye-bye. So good riddance 2009!! Don't let the door hit ya on the way out!

OK. So, tomorrow will be my annual spend-the-first-day-of-the-year-in-the-studio day. But before I head out I will try to post some info about the book club and how we should all proceed. I am thrilled that there are about 30 people (that I know of) participating!! That is amazing! And of course there is still time to run out and get a copy of the book at your local book store and join us. Everyone is welcome!

I can't believe the response to my button post from yesterday! Man, antique buttons really trigger the drool mechanism. Who knew? I am still sorting through all of them - I'm a little more than half done. Sooooooooooooo, when I am done I am going to put together a splendid little assortment of treasures and then... (wait for it, wait for it...) I will have a giveaway!! Yay! Sounds like a fun way to start off the new year, right? I also have another giveaway coming up that involves a certain bead website and a certain gift certificate. Probably next week, so stay tuned.

That's all for now. Happy New Year everyone. Be safe. Be smart. And get some sleep... we have a big year ahead of us! :)

i am with you... definitely trying to be grateful for the good, but it was kind of chock-a-block challenging... giveaways and a book club - starting out good already!
happy NEW year... i am not quite as stunned by the passage of a year as i am of the past 10 - 2000 was such a big deal! i almost don't remember passing 2005...

Did you come up with a name for the group??? I'm curious to see how it's gonna go. I've already started reading the book and it's very good...I think you'll like it a lot..

Oooo! A giveaway! I didn't comment on the button post because I was so jealous, I was worried I'd say something rude. ;)
