Some of my hopes for the new year are personal- like attempting to be a bit more "Zen" in general. I'd like to take that feeling that I get in yoga class and try to let it permeate my life. I'd also like to do more yoga.
Other ideas that I have are silly little things that I am not sure why I always procrastinate so much- such as putting up more stuff on the walls. The walls in our upstairs hallway are STILL completely empty, as were most of the walls in my youngest daughter's room.
So I figured that I might as well get started somewhere- and it seemed like putting a few holes in walls was probably an easier afternoon project than making over my entire personality.
I had a few art projects sitting around in various locations around the house, and realized that they were all colorful enough to work together in a kids room. My mom cross stitched the collection of butterflies in the center of the wall, and receiving that as a gift was just the motivation that I needed to get everything else up as well.
