Happy New Year Funky Monkey!

A Happy Heartfelt New Year to all my Friends!

This Funky Monkey and his book about monkeys jumping on the bed is a present for my sweet grand neice, Madelyn! I finally completed it last night and will be delivering it to her tomorrow!

This is also a little peak at my sewing area! But I can still produce art in amongst all the clutter!
I've made a few challenges for the new year:
1. Susan Sorrell's monthly challenge to try a new technique each month
2. Complete 2 projects for juried shows, coming up soon
3. Do my blog every week, none of this catch up stuff!
4. Work on writing articles for magazines
5. Have fun at my stitching guilds and continue with my volunteer work
6. Complete a few UFOs and prepare for gallery sales ahead of time
7. Take a few classes during the year, to get stimulated with art
8. Start a new sketchbook for 2010
9. Meet with my group Material Girls as often as possible and play all day
10. Spend time with Oatie, every day

That's it friends, Happy New Year! Best Wishes to Maggi in the UK! My most loyal follower! Hugs from afar!

What a great present Funky Monkey is, she is bound to love it. Very brave of you to list your challenges for the year - now we can all nag you to complete them.

First of all - thank you SO much for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to leave a note! I am now a confirmed subscriber so that I can see all of your new work! I had to chuckle when I saw your work area - it's matches mine to a tee - plus I too am a Gemini Rabbit! Knowing that I suppose the ordered chaos on our work tables makes sense! Cheers and Happy New Year !

I'm impressed by your list of challenges for the year. I hope you manage to achieve them all. At present, I'm just trying to finish off things from last year.
