happy new year and other fun stuff!

Happy New Year! Things in the real world have been hectic and weird and all kinds of emotions rolled up into December and Christmas. I'm ready for a fresh start in 2010! And on that note...

This is my 100th post! Yay! I'd like to celebrate with a crafty swap with any of you! Leave a comment with your email, or email me at seaschell AT gmail DOT com and we'll make it happen!

I did finish a few crafty gifts for Christmas. I've already posted about the coffee cozies I made for one of my sisters and a friend. I also painted a painting for my sis... we went to the Guggenheim in NYC in October and she loved all the abstract paintings with circles. I painted a circle painting just for her, as a gag. I negelected to take a picture of it, unfortunately.

I also finished the fabric dollhouse using the pattern from UK Lass in US. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the pattern was to follow and how cute it is! I bought a Fisher-Price King and Queen to go inside. I wanted to make little dolls but the recipient is barely two and I didn't want to present her with a choking hazard.

Sorry about the really bad photos. Make sure you ignore the garbage can in the first one and my snowflake pajama pant-clad knee in the second one, haha!

And finally... this week is my birthday! I'm having a fun party next Saturday and I'm super excited!
