I started my festivities by cleaning up this lamp I found at Goodwill for $2.99 yesterday, including the shade! Then I got busy making myself a new roll-up for my knitting needles (below). The old one was getting pretty shoddy and I was hot to use some scrap fabric I had lying around for a small project.
After that, I got down to working on a paper-cut commission I recently received for a portrait of Johnny Cash. Yep, there were a lot of details in this one and, yep, my hand hurts.
All in all, an excellent way to start the year. Felt like I got a good, creative jump on 2010. What is your New Year's ritual, if you have one?
