Happy 2013, everybody!
The start of a new year is always reason to celebrate. It means a fresh start, renewed energy, and most important of all, an end to the seemingly endless holiday season. Enough already!
My glamorous New Years Eve? I went to bed around 9:30 and slept like a log till morning; I've seen enough balls drop (and dropped a few myself), plus Michael was getting over the flu and wasn't up to partying. But I did celebrate New Years Day with family and friends at my brother and SIL's and had a lovely time.
There's so much in store for the coming year here at MPB: new outfits, new hairdos, and fun, fun, fun! (Can you name the star, name the show?)
I've already received my first acquisition of 2013, a brand new button foot imported directly from China!
Here are just some of the projects on deck:
A bomber jacket made from Simplicity 7358!
Hats from Vogue 8893!
Decluttering in Apartment 12D!
And, of course, glamorous gowns, careful close-ups, and vintage patterns galore! (BTW, if anyone can track down McCalls 2304 -- cocktail party-on-top, Tupperware party-below -- I'd love to have it!)
This year I have decided to do away with resolutions -- the whole ritual has grown tiresome.
Of course, if you'd like to share some of yours, go ahead -- at MPB, we don't judge.
Can't wait to get 2013 underway!
