What are you going to do in 2013? (part 2)

I am sorry it took too long since the last post, but the year only starts for me on the 10th of January. This is because the 9th is my birthday and everything stays sort of on "stand-by" until then...

But life is finally back to normal, or as normal as it can be. And I am back!

Continuing with my New Year's goals:

Resolution # 3:
Travel more... There is something about travelling that brings a smile to my face. I started 2012 travelling, but I didn't keep it up over the year. In 2013, however, I plan to visit at least a couple of new places.

Great inspiration... Les Robes Géographiques

Aren't these a great inspiration?! Les Robes Géographiques is the work of London based artist Elisabeth Lecourt. I simply love it! It makes me want to give it a go and try folding some old maps to see if it will look as cute as these...


Resolution # 4:
Keep moving on... In every way! Only very recently I rediscovered a passion for cycling. It helps that I am surrounded by beautiful parks... Well, this year I want to make the most of it!

Keep moving on... In every way!

I know this is not my average post - to start, it has no DIY per se - but sometimes all we need before starting a new creative project is that little boost of inspiration... And every beginning of a new year I feel that I need to stock up on it, so that later on, in the months to come, I can always look back and re-energise myself with this freshness and excitement that only the month of January seems to have...

Happy New Year everyone! 
I hope 2013 brings you lots of crafty & creative moments to brighten your day!

  1. I got a bike for Christmas from Matt and just love it! We're luck that a 5 minute ride from our house is the countryside so not too much traffic etc. x

    1. That's great Al! Have you got a name for it? I call mine Penny... Opposite us here is Wimbledon Common, it's great to cycle there during the spring/summer, but it gets so muddy when it rains that recently I haven't had the courage to go out... :-/
