I have to say I've been very slack with my blogging over the Christmas break - spending lots of lovely time with family and just relaxing which has been fabulous!
I did originally have lots of plans for end of year reviews, tutorial round ups and then New Years goals and resolutions posts - but they just didn't happen and to be honest, it's been nice to step back for a couple of weeks and take this break.
However - I am now itching to get back into things and slowly finding time here and there to sneak back onto the blog and into my crafting, although I still have another week or so of family holiday to enjoy!
Just wanted to share something here - the above picture of 3 crochet hooks I bought yesterday.
I've never crocheted in my life - but have been so inspired by so many wonderful bloggers out there who do crochet the most amazing things!
My 2 daughters are also keen to learn along side me. I've been showing them pictures of the adorable Amigurumi out there - and that is our ultimate aim - to be able to make some of those!
So, I've ordered a couple of beginner crochet books from the library, and we'll be checking out some you tube tutorials later today!
If anyone has any recommendations or tips for beginner crocheters, we'd love to hear them!
This is also part of a challenge I'm doing this year with my girls - to try something new each day in 2013. That's right - 365 new experiences this year - anything and everything from eating new foods to trying new sports and visiting new places. Great for us all to broaden our horizons and learn lots of new things!
So - Happy New Year to everyone - I hope your year has started well!
Do you have any plans or resolutions this year?
