Old and New

It’s that time again, isn’t it?  Time to reflect on the year that ended.  Time to contemplate the year that just began.

With the end of 2008 came the official end of this too…

I knew that the end was coming – and I’m not sad about it.  I learned so much and would not be were I am today if it weren’t for this adventure.  Etsy already closed my shop due to inactivity  and now I have closed down my business account at the bank and license with the state.  All that is left is to redo that website to reflect this official change.

My current business will be one year old in a matter of days!  Plans are being made for the coming year and I’m excited to try out a few new ideas.  I’ll share them with you when the time is right.

Another old thing from 2008 that had to go was this….

It was yucky and gross and not my style, plus the padding was so thin that I had to put tea towels under the cover to prevent the little metal grid pattern from below showing up on my fabrics. I feel much better now that I have this….

I used this fun print from Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden Collection.  (After I was done, I thought I should have taken pictures for a tutorial.  Sorry!)   Whew!  Now I feel like I can make it through the year.  😉

I can also survive 2009 now that my 20-something brother-in-law no longer has plates that blow mine out of the water on the coolness scale.  His plates are really really cool – and mine….

yeah, they were definitely not so cool.  BUT lucky for me, I found some plates at Ross’ that I think are fun and cool (and were also inexpensive – everything at Ross’ is cheap!)  So now my plates can hold their own against his cool plates!

I found 5 colors (yep – only 3 pictured here) – so I have 2 of each color (and one mug in each color)  but I’m hoping that a 6th color will appear one day.  I feel like I need to have 12 – is that weird?  I know that orange and purple also exist – but I need to find 2 plates, 2 salad plates and 2 bowls plus one mug….so I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

Hoping that 2009 is filled with new wonderful things for all of us!

    I’m loving the mixed colored plates! AND a new ironing board cover is definitely on my list! I’m starting with a table top version first for pressing blocks by my sewing machine. Maybe when I’m ready for the full meal deal, you’ll have a tutorial for me?! 😉

    Oh closing Cozy Comforts must be bittersweet! But I’m sure streamlining everything is going to be a lot easier. I spent WAY too much time yesterday calculating inventory and doing all that end of year stuff. Yikes – I can only imagine what you must have to do…

    Happy New Year!
