Hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve. Mine was quite festive. My bf and I went to a Masquerade themed party hosted by a very sweet couple. There were lots of champaigne, fireworks, and dancing involved. Right before midnight, many of us ate 12 grapes, each one symbolizes a wish or goal for the new year. I really love this tradition because it’s something that I would do as little girl with my family on new year’s eve (it’s a very common tradition in some latin american countries).
With that said, here are my 12 “grapes” for the New Year:
1 – Have a _________ .(it’s a secret for now!)
2 – Healthy living (eat smarter and start jogging)
3 – Complete my grannie square and tie-dye suns blankets
4 – Create a new line of cute items for my shop.
5 – Thrift, craft, and sew to decorate my new apartment.
6 – Blog at least 3x a week
7 – Start an art journal
8 – Create mini photo albums w/my instax cam
9 – Begin a sketch book
10 – Write poetry again
11 – Attend 2 to 4 craft fairs
12 – Travel somewhere exciting
Okay I’ve shared my 12 grapes, now it’s your turn. What hopes or goals do you have the new year? Sue
