The first day of the New Year is one of my most favourite days. There are so many possibilities, things to look forward to in the months to come. A blog and podcast that I enjoy, A Playful Day, has come up with just about the greatest idea for this year that I think is something those who feel a need to create can join in and find a like minded community. The Maker’s Year, to borrow from her page;
“is a creativity and sustainable living challenge with a seasonal focus. It is open to every person who wishes to join me on this journey by documenting their daily making in 2016. You can participate via your blogs, Instagram, Twitter, Steller and Pinterest by sharing your projects and what making means to you.”
I’ll be joining in for sure, and I’ve already been amazed by the lovely care and pride that people take in their making.
Our holiday has been just about perfect with plenty of family time and creating. Poor Sarah had to have a tooth extracted at the beginning of this week, but has been a trooper about the whole thing and will hopefully be back to normal soon.

How did you spend the holidays? I hope you enjoyed every minute that you had and are still enjoying any time left. We still have a day or two and there may or may not be a lot more of this:…………………
