happy new years!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you've had a nice transition into 2009. Mine has been uneventful, but that's just the way I like it. 

It's hard to believe I haven't posted since the middle of October. I've been getting set up here in North Carolina for awhile, but allowed myself a little vacation from blogging. Plus in setting everything up, I haven't really done much on the craft front up until now.

I'm loving being back in my home state, and I've been away long enough that a lot of things are new to me again. So much has grown and developed, and my tastes have changed, so that leaves a lot to explore. And setting up an apartment that is ALL MINE has been a treat. Plus there's more apartment for the money, so it's a nice change from living in nyc.

For example, the view from my bedroom in Brooklyn (it's an air shaft):

And the view from my new bedroom (those are ducks in the water):

Much nicer, you say? Darn right it is. Needless to say, I think this has been a good move. I'm getting used to working from home and trying to figure out ways to get myself out of the house and meeting people and staying active.

Lot's to come in '09. Stay tuned!


  1. That looks great! I bet the size of the apartment improved as well.

  2. Sounds like a great apartment! Enjoy :)

  3. ooh, the new view is MUCH better! Hope you are doing well in NC.

  4. Glad you're settling in. Happy New Year!

  5. What a view! NC is beautiful. Glad to hear that you're settling in!

  6. Glad the move went well and you're adjusting to life in NC! I'm looking forward to hearing all about your crafty adventures ...

    p.s. great view!

  7. *sigh*
    that looks idyllic and beautiful. No contest to my view of a brick wall out one window, and garbage bins out the other....
