Key West

Enjoying a few days off in wonderful Key West, FL, one part to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, another part to decompress. It's a vacation that is desperately needed, as work and time are taking a toll.  Enjoy the week.

Emerald Green

Okay, I have never been one to consistently follow trends (well, except for last year (Tangerine – Color of the Year 2012).  I had some great Tangerine Orange Linen fabric which incorporated into a few Messenger Bags last year.    

A few weeks ago, Pantone announced the Color of the Year - 2013 as Emerald Green.   Now this girl would never turn a blind eye to any Emerald (especially on a ring), but I guess I never considered using it as accessories.  So I gave in the other day and purchased some Emerald Green Burlap fabric.   

This warm Florida winter has me pining for some burlap totes and clutches.  I found some great white Hemp/Cotton fabric that I thought would be a fantastic combination...we shall see.

MIA? No just hanging in Sunny Florida

Missing in Action?   

Nope, I am still here, enjoying a warm winter in Sunny Hot (did I mention Hot) Florida.   I lost some of my stamina over the Fall and decided to take a step back during the holidays.  The time off was great as it gave me time to breathe and play around with fabric and leather. A few months ago I discovered a Tandy Leather Store just a few miles from my house, so I am really excited to expand to a medium outside of hemp and canvas.  It had been so long since I tried something different, as I had grown a little weary after my large order of tote bags for Delta Delta, Delta.  I did add a couple of items to the shop, a few messenger bags and a tote or two and I promise to add some more soon. 

Hopefully your holidays were peaceful with your love ones near.  This year’s holiday had a melancholy feel as I did not head North and I also did not decorate, which I think only added to the melancholy.  But I did spend a quiet Christmas with the puppy and DH.

As with the start of another year, time to take stock of my world and as usual I have created another list of stuff, objectives, etc, etc., etc.    Perhaps this year I need to add some milestones, because I did not accomplish too many items on my list.

So what are your goals for 2013?
