white january


So here we go with the slate wiped clean again - first of Jan, the first day of the new beginnings...

A bit like a blank page to fill in with jots and scribbles of plans, hopes and resolutions.
Here are my four entries to match each little mark in the snow.

January will see me do much hard work in the crafting department. Finally those scraps and lengths in the fabric stash will become embodiments of ideas drawn out on paper.

January will see me do a 5-day work placement as part of my language course. On one hand, I'm dreading it, because my language skills are not really workplace level yet, but on the other hand I much hope I will get the placement at the place I applied to! I hope, I wish, I cross all my fingers!

January will see me getting my zen back - mentally, physically and emotionally. 2012 was spent preparing for, carrying out and then coping with a huge change. The change of scenery along with its exciting goodnesses also brought stresses, facing of fears and uncertainty. I feel it's now time to be de-stressed, detoxed and purged of negativity. I'm hoping for a re-orienting, purifying, focusing and re-balancing second half of the month.

January will see the blog carry on with its staple topics including thrifty finds and crafty musings, of course. Plus, as a new addition, I'll be taking part in the Colour Me Happy challenge each month, of which the first part is this post, simple white for January. See the other participants over here.

Have a Happy start to the New Year, everyone!

  5. thank you for your nice comment on my "color me happy"-picture. it was taken last january in Switzerland. we have no snow at all (tomorrow it is going to be up to 12°C with rain) and I miss it dearly. it's just as you said, it makes winter and its landscape so much brighter and also adds a lot of fun... so I hope it will be snowy soon.
    a happy new year (a little bit late) to you too!

    1. it all melted here too! i think winters should be snowy and fairly cold, somehow it's better for health and mood too... in the warmish cold weather come all sorts of flu and cough, and the dampness in the air is unpleasant. so I wish both of us a speedy snowy come-back with at least -10! :)

      looking forward to seeing your February picture!

  8. Wow, a month full of new things! Doing an internship in a "foreign" country (I guess it still feels foreign to you) would totally freak me out. We finally got some snow here, too! =)
