Well Hello There, 2011

A Toast!
Hello again! Did you miss me? I missed you guys! Happy New Year!

Even though I was going to rest, somehow I feel just as exhausted today as I did 2 weeks ago. I blame my husband for all the running around New York City we did this weekend. BUT we did see a lot of family and friends, so it was fun. I even snapped a few pictures! This time around I went black and white because color pictures of dirty snow…not cute. Black and white pictures of dirty snow…much better.

If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve updated the logo for The Art of Accessories for 2011 and even refreshed my color palette to my favorite color…GREEN! Over the next few weeks I’ll incorporate a few more changes and graphic images and I’m even toying around with the idea of a few new featured posts. I’m currently obsessed with lipstick, so you may see something call Lip Service in the future…I don’t know just yet.

As I’m still tinkering around with what 2011 will bring, my posting might not be daily but I will be posting this week. I’ve been working on resolutions for myself and for the blog as well and I don’t think I’ve gotten everything that’s been swirling around in my head on paper just yet. Curious about my resolutions/goals? There is one that I’ve kept for the last 2 years that I’m vowing to do again: Do Something Creative Every Day. It’s the slogan for one of my favorite stores, Paper Source and I have a mug with that saying on it that helps to remind me of what fuels me – being creative. It’s so easy to forget or take for granted, so I really do try to do something even small that pulls on my creativity daily.

I’m very excited about 2011, I just feel like this year is going to be so good and I’m ready to start fresh and begin a great year. So I’m happy that you came back to the Art of Accessories, that you want to spend 2011 with me because I definitely want to with you. So tell me, what’d you get for Christmas?! What are your resolutions for the new year? Tell me!

  1. Happy New Year to you as well. I’m glad to see you back in action on this first work day of the new year. My Christmas was spent in chilly Tampa. Yes, that’s right…chilly. We went to the Bucs game on the 26th and it was in the 30’s-40’s with 20-30mph winds. Needless to say we froze. I got the best Christmas/Anniversary gift ever…new wedding rings. I’m in love!!!

    I’m vowing not to do any “resolutions” but to make some lifestyle changes. I wrote them on my latest blog as well so feel free to check it out too. Basically, I’m vowing not only to eat right and work out, but to save money for some fun things in life like tropical vacations! yay!!

    Happy New Year!
