So long November, you will not be missed

December 1, 2012

100_1481I am happy November is gone. I can think of December as a new beginning (even if it means closer to snowy days) and brush off the hurt November brought. I have lost someone dear to me and still trying to pick up my little heart in pieces. I will be forever grieving in my heart but I need to keep breathing and living. It is the sad truth of life. We have no other option because it does not wait. The hours, days, months still pass whether you want it or not. I hope December will be more kind.

December Plans

Christmas Gifts

New Year Cleaning

Start (once again) my etsy store

Find new ideas for my blog

Take a trip with my girlfriend +boyfriend

Christmas Gifts: This year I am planning to give mostly handmade pieces as Christmas presents. Nothing beats receiving nicely handmade stuff. Also for the first time I will be spending Christmas morning with my boyfriend’s family and they added me as a secret Santa. I am very excited about it even if find it quite difficult to get gifts for men and I ended up having to be a secret Santa to one of his male family member. I see a scarf in his future…

Find new ideas for my blog: I stumble upon this wonderful little website One Sheepish Girl that got me extremely excited at embroidery. Being a Moleskine Notebook lover myself I want to try my hand at creating work similar to hers. Additionally she started 12 sheepish days series where she creates little Christmas related stuff (I wonder why she picked 12 days…). I would probably not be able to come up with 12 days (because I am lazy) but will definitely do to do a week series.

Start my knit/crochet store on Etsy: This one is here to remind me that I have been trying to start this store since 2009. Three years later I have notebooks filled with ideas and tons of unfinished projects. Cherie, just stop procrastinating and do it!

New Year cleaning – Byebye 2012! : It is customary in Haiti to dust off your house on the night of December 31st to remove all the remaining bad vibes of the previous year. Even after moving to New York I continued on this tradition at my own place. I believe these old customs are being lost because I can’t recall seeing anyone doing it during the past 3 years while I was in Haiti. It is sad.

Take a trip with my girlfriends +boyfriend: A couple years ago we rented a cabin a Taconic State Park in NY and ended up having one of the most incredible time. Since I have learned about the existence of camping and cabin rental in US state parks I don’t want to hear the word “hotel’ if there is a park nearby. My boyfriend doesn’t always agree but most of the time I win. It would be nice to plan another one
