Sparkle! Shimmer! Glimmer! Gleam!

There is no holiday more appropriate for my mantra "sparkle, shimmer, glimmer, gleam!" than New Year's Eve, with it's remembrances of the delights of the past year and the hopes and wishes for the new one.

...gather your prettiest papers and wires and fringes and silks and everything sparkly you can lay your hands on...
... with some crepe paper and silk and shiny foil fringe, begin the process of a New Year's Eve fantasy ...
... twist and braid and weave and dye ...
...then get out your ladder to begin festooning and draping and creating ...
... hang your pinatas by silken cords ...
...and, if one should drop and break, it's only so you have enough nourishment to continue! ...... have you made enough braid? ... are there enough tassels? ... have you used every last shred of sparkly and shiny scrap? ...
...then it's TIME! Pop the cork and celebrate. A new year - new adventures - new knowledge - new challenges - new discoveries - new loves - is about to begin!

Thank you for spending time with me this year. Thank you for your encouragement and compliments and jokes and chiding and teasing. I appreciate my new-found friends so much, and I feel that you have enriched my life in so many ways.

Now, go make a beautiful 2010!
