Creatives Celebrations coming for 2011

2011 is going to be a great year! I wanted to start writing more which is why I started this blog last year! However I didn't have the motivation to keep up with it. I didn't feel like I had anything interesting to say. So I have a great plan for 2011 to keep this blog active!
You know how it seems like everyday is "national something day"? Well each week I plan to make at least one new craft going along with on the current national days. 2011 is the year of the hare in the Chinese zodiac.

The united nations has also declared 2011 international year of forests! I am so excited that I decided to do this year for just those two things! I already have a cross stitch picked out for year of the hare, and it's a big one so it might take be all year to get it done! And as far as international year of forests, you can expect lots of forest themed crafts from me seeing as I LOVE all things woodland. Gnomes, deer, squirrels, owl, HEDGEHOGS, trees and birds :) Some of my most favorite things of all time!

January is the national month of several different things.
  • National Bath Safety Month
  • National Blood Donor Month
  • National Braille Literacy Month
  • National Hobby Month
  • Hot Tea Month
  • National Oatmeal Month
  • National Soup Month
I can already think of several neat crafts to share with you guys! I think it being national hobby month is a good sign as well. I will probably share some of my recipes too. And as a self proclaimed tea enthusiasts I'll be sure to share all the interesting tidbits I know about the delicious refreshment.

If you know any national days you'd like for me to craft along to, just let me know! I'm excited and look forward to a great year of celebrating and crafting!
