Happy New Year!  Yip yip for 2009.  I don't make resolutions, so passe.  But, I do make themes.  I like everything to have a nice, tidy theme.  So, 2009: I am a finisher! (Said with gusto).  I have always been a primo starter.  Seriously, the ideas abound, plans are made, things get rolling, and then  new ideas come along (and/or life) and all the best intentions fall by the wayside.  The biggest tragedy of this sad lament is that I feel like a failure for what goes unfinished or poorly executed.  My theme is all about organization, prioritization, and self-congratulation.  Lists galore and realistic plans and, the best part, I get to throw my arms up and shout, "I AM A FINISHER!" every time I finish something, anything really.  To be followed by rolling eyes and hands over ears of the little people.

I think you are a darn good finisher and I love my almond butter and paper dolls. Thank you. We missed you over the holiday and look forward to when you are up in February.

I loved this post Emily - I may steal that idea. I am sadly lacking in the finishing category myself. BTW - I love the paper dolls. Your new header on the bog is fabulous! I love!!!
