the one where i regain a social life

friday, shawn & i met caroline for dinner. we went to 11 city and then she and i had drinks at the palmer house. saturday, we went to the movies with my p's. saturday night we went to a party at andrea's. sunday, andy & nancy came over. we at curds, potato soup, drank gin dandy and ate cookies. last night, shannon & phil came over for meat-a-palooza 2: the revenge of the sausage.

the resolution remains the same

its funny. we rocked this past year. i did make something everyday.   i wore my cute clothes. and even gave up buying new for 6 months. i took A LOT of pictures. we ate better. we saw our friends bunches. and then... well, fall came and we became very hermit-like while prepping for renegade and dealing with my surgery. i slept in at least once every weekend. and shawn & i definitely spent a ton of time together. we made stuff. we cooked together. we took many trips to the fabric store together...

so, more of the same. make more stuff. wear clothes i have. take lots of pictures. eat better. see our friends more. sleep more. spend more time with shawn - including an exotic trip. and buy less in general - especially books. get rid of the stuff we have.  read more. be less hard on myself. write more letters. walk monkey more. blog more. take better care of myself in general.

i also am going to get serious about my crafty businesses. if this is truly what i want TO DO, i have to. to that end, notice the new temporary banner. no more shanasays. cookoorikoo is it. (and pixierolls!) i've begun merging the shops. managing three shops was insane. two seems much less crazy-making. i was always feeling like one of the shops was being neglected. so, i'm hopeful this will help. this will probably be the first of many changes.

that's what the new year is for, right?

oh and because today is my shop birthday, i'm offering free shipping for the next week. and i'll be throwing a little extra somethin' somethin' in each order. yay!

i got nothing done this weekend. made nothing. slept a lot. moaned. had to cancel plans with cheryl. didn't get to see gram. forced shawn to wait on me. was an all around miserable wretch. i've now been to the dr. got meds. going back to bed. hoping for a medical miracle. let's keep our fingers crossed.

so tired

Il_430xn12864998
this beautiful girl came up when i searched "so tired" on etsy. i wish i was that glamorous looking in my current sleepless state. not so much. its been an exhausting week. flu, work stuff, a total lack of energy and motivation...

i suppose that's not entirely true. i completed a pair of wristwarmers yesterday and almost finished a second pair. so, tonight, i'm off to find pajamas, a glass of wine, and the couch. rumor has it grey's anatomy is actually new.
