9 muses musing - RESOLUTION


For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot

Happy New Year everyone!  It's that time of year again, when many people make their New Year's resolutions. So I have to ask--are you a resolution-maker?  Or perhaps you are more of the reflective kind...looking back to assess the past year without making too many plans and promises for the future?

Me?  I wouldn't say I make any life changing "resolutions", but I do try to list (sometimes in my head, and other times written on a cocktail napkin) a few things I'd like to do each year.  This year I'd like to spend a little more time working on my knitting...perhaps learning a new technique or stitch, or maybe knitting a new type of garment that will challenge me.  I'm also going to focus on using my new camera to its fullest and learning how to get the most out of one of my Christmas gifts--Photoshop Elements 9 (yay!).  And I am hoping to reconnect with my childhood best friend who I haven't seen or spoken to in years.

Today I am giving away these hand knit fingerless gloves that I made with a beautiful 100% merino wool purchased at a sheep & wool festival in New York in October.  These gloves are perfect for all you photo enthusiasts who need a little dexterity to work the camera buttons while keeping the rest of your hands warm.


Link up below or comment and you will be entered for a chance to win these gloves!    I look forward to seeing your submissions for RESOLUTION. Share an image that depicts some of your plans for the New Year, a list of your resolutions (big or small) or a story of how you rang in 2011.

Thank you for spending the holiday season with us!  It was so inspiring to see the images and stories you shared showing how you celebrated in your part of the world.  Make sure to visit tomorrow on the More Musing Page to see the list of all of the giveaway winners.

Here's to a peaceful and happy 2011!!

I set goals/intentions every year but I haven't committed to any for 2011 YET. I will soon.

I have committed to my focus word for 2011, EMBRACE [who I am]. Just blogged about it last night :)

I enjoyed the prompts as well, but I had the flu or something, and I wasn't able to shoot. :(

I want to learn to control my flash, not just use it in a pinch.

The gloves are gorgeous!

This year I'm going to do a project 365, and also to pay closer attention to my words.

Such a busy time but one of my holiday photos just seemed to fit the resolution theme today so was thrilled to link in.

Thanks to all the muses! (LOVE those gloves!)

I rang in the new year with my family. It was wonderful feeling the love and warmth inside the house--especially when it was 9 degree outside!

Happy New Year, Muses!
