I thoroughly enjoyed making this giant flower for my hat -- representing my flower business, which I hope continues to do well in the coming year. Now I just need another function to wear this creation to!
Andrew's hat was all about soccer, including a sign above the goal that said "2010 Goal". He made a prototype himself out of cardboard with green paper grass around the top and then we created this finished product together:
Michael thought he had an extra day to make his, but when it came down to the last 20 minutes he came up with this idea: woodworking. He's wearing his great-grandfather's straight edge and shows plans of a side table he has already started building.
We all had fun at the party and enjoyed the other hats that were worn, including Christina's complete Ysolda-look-alike outfit and hat!!!!!! (Ysolda is a knitter.)
And now we're in the New Year! I think January is becoming one of my favorite months. It is often a bright month with sunlight reflected off of snow, or clear blue skies. The month seems quieter than December and there is a feeling of freshness. Hurray for the new year!
