A Late December Night
I like the idea of themed posts for a blog! I was thinking of a few ideas, and themes, that might go with each day of the week. But then I thought “Why not have themes for each month of the year”? So I would like to start today with Delightful December! For each month of the year I want to write about specific things that I plan, like, appreciate, and particularly enjoy each month.
I like December! And as soon as December starts, I am reminded that another year is close to the end. As I get older every year, I also realize how each year seems shorter than the last. In December I take time to think of the resolutions I made at the beginning of the year, and then, think of new ones that I might like to try on.
Another reason I like December, is because of all the good and delicious things that happen. You get some time off from work -I hope-, spend time with friends and family, eat delicious food, drink champagne -hopefully-, and celebrate the last day of the year being merry and hugging friends at midnight! At least that is what I plan :)
My resolutions for 2013 included not being afraid to be more creative. One of the things I wanted to do more of was drawing. Before this year, I have not doodled anything since 2003. I figured 10 years is too long without enjoying anything artistic and creative. I did not draw as much as I thought would, but I am happy that I picked up the colored pencils once again. My favourite this year is Listen to Your Heart seen below. It’s simple, but I like the message. The image was inspired by an Oracle Card.
Listen to Your Heart
This year I also played around with watercolors. See Watercolor Tulip below.
Another way I enjoyed being creative this year was by taking photos. I purchased my first camera this June. It’s Panasonic Lumix GF3, and although it is not the greatest camera out there, it was a good price, and it’s perfect for a beginner like me. You can check out my photographs on 500px.
In the year to come, I would like to continue to be creative, save some money, and improve in photography. I will leave the other resolutions for another post. What are some things you enjoy about December?
Have a good Sunday!!!
