} A Sparkling New Year!

Well, it’s 2013! Another one bites the dust!

I wish you all a great 2013 one, whatever that means for you! It is, after all, tailored to each and everyone of us, right?

It’s also time, for many of us, for (ongoing, or empty, or not) promises. To ourselves, to the people we love, to our work or business, for mankind.

A couple of years ago, I was at a New Year’s supper at my longtime friend Emilie’s place, and everyone started telling their New Years resolutions. I had never done that before (Why now? Why not all year long when it is required?), but I got caught up in the game of it all, and made 3 resolutions for that year: 1- To not shut up (AKA: stand up for myself as it happens), 2- Accept compliments (Genuinely.), 3- To stop saying sorry when I did nothing wrong (You know those people who say sorry for anything and everything? That’s it.).

Turns out, they were more like long term resolutions, since I am still working on them as of now. And will probably have to remind myself of these my entire lifetime! And that’s fine too, right?! :) Do you have lifetime resolutions yourselves?

With all that said, we all need a little shiny and sparkle (especially in gold) in our lives once in a while. Hence my picks in this post today for ya. Enjoy! :)

Calendar Happy 2009!

Hello everyone!!

I’ll take a little time to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you all for being such faithful readers and great commenters! I adore reading all your fab comments on all my posts!

For those who would like to receive Creativadoration directly into their email each day (that is, if I post each day!), you can just come on to the homepage and you’ll find a link saying “Subscribe to Creativadoration by Email” on the top right! :)


And now, what could be more perfect than a handmade 2009 calendar selection! Just click on the pictures to be taken there!

I was actually looking for a wall calendar that I would have space to write small things on, not too big, not too small, but the selection for those that I liked were quite rare. (For next year, get on it, calendar designer peeps! hehe)

I finally bought the printable PDF calendar you can see above, by Bluetricycle! I doubt I’ll be able to write much since it’s 4.25in large, but it was just too cute to pass up! :)

Hope you’ll continue to enjoy my blog in 2009! I promise to keep bringing you a lot of handmade goodness! :)
