It's short notice, but go check out the page and you can enter to win numerous giveaways by bloggers all over the place! Actually I really think that I would like to join up the next time and maybe give something away myself. Some people give away books, chocolate, food, APRONS, fabric scraps, mystery gifts, anything!! It's so exciting! I really do want to give something away the next time--that would be an awesome thing to join!
So, any ideas of what I can give away?
Hmmm.... let's see....

So the good news is that I emailed someone a picture of the art-o-mat machine I bought recently in Indy and they told me that it is from SECCA which is in Winston-Salem, North Carolina--so I think that's going to be my destination for this year! I can't wait! Does anyone know anything about this area? Anyone have any suggestions for things to do?
Anyone want to go on a trip this year?

If I can locate the machine then I plan to try to visit it sometime this year--regardless of it's home location! So that's one way that I plan to continue my focus on Art and Travel--let's just hope that I will have the funds to do so!!! Anyone interested in a road trip this year? I would also like to travel to Chicago for the handmade market on the weekends that they have there where they sell fun, hand-made items. Check out the website for it at http://www.handmadechicago.com/
Along those lines, one thing that I want to add to my life this year is sewing. I am going to try it and see if it's really a craft that works for me. I like the idea of it because I love looking at the fabrics and the colors and having the freedom to try to make something yourself just sounds so lovely, so I'm going to try to add it in to my life this year--although it might not actually work for me. But still I'm going to attempt to try it! I'm going to continue in my quest for finding an artistic outlet that suits me and my needs.
Alright so my real addition to my life this year is that I want to try to cook a bit more and a bit better!!! So wish me luck and share with me some good recipes, because it's time for me to learn some cooking skills that will amaze me, my friends, my family, and maybe even my dog... although Gussy really isn't too picky! :o)
Happy New Year!!!!
