New year, new me?


OK, I’ll admit it…I’m TERRIBLE at resolutions. I don’t like to commit to any one thing cause I don’t like to say I’m going to do something only to not follow through.

With that in mind, I don’t know that these are resolutions, but more statements of things I would like to aspire to do for self-improvement…so here goes (in no particular order).

1) Finally get designed or atleast get some kind of relevant content on it!

2) Become a better blogger and friend to my bloggy friends. I seriously need to better show my love and support for you guys who actually read what I have to say. I am going to comment more on here and visit your blogs as well.

3) Lose weight. I kinda think that the only way this will happen is if I incorporate this into my blog and let people know about, thus holding me accountable for making better choices and following through with my goal.

4) Be more social. I need to get out more and meet new people in my community. This also means breaking out of my comfort zone.

5) Travel and explore. I need to go to more unique places and reach outside of my borders. I don’t think this will be anything too exotic, but I should atleast try to get to Yosemite and see other local sites (and the ocean, of coures…I’ve only seen it 3 times since I’ve been in Cali)!

So, are you like me and not good at keeping your resolutions. If you comment about it, I promise to comment back. It would be pretty sad to not stick to my sorta/kinda resolution one of two days in it. That would be so super lame.

Until next time Swellions!


Simple Star Stemware

star stemware

If you are looking for a last minute stemware idea for your New Year’s party, look no farther than your holiday gift wrap stash or craft aisle.

You can get a small spool of this wire in your desired color (typically this time of year you will be able to find red, silver, or blue) for about a dollar at a dollar store, craft store, or big box store. Anyway, divide it up and cut it into 4 pieces. Wrap them around the stems…several glasses on a table arranged would make for a very pretty display.

I actually used silver wire stars for mine, but man oh man, my photo was really lousy in coloration, so I turned it into a faux pink and purple. It looks more fun this way. If only we could simply do this with more blah things in life!

I had another project up my sleeve that I worked on for 2 hours tonight and it just didn’t come together the way I wished…but I was wanting to something swell for New Years. I’m not 100% sure what I will be doing. I like to take it easy and laid back on New Year’s with a good group of friends most times.

Anyway, I hope yours turns out great! I can’t believe it’s Thursday tomorrow already!

Until next time Swellions!
