New Year-New List-New Calender

I have always enjoyed the New Year, not the parties and crazy things just a new slate.

365 new days, 365 new chances it is amazing.

Now I realize that time is something that humans have created for their own existence but I’m a list maker, a goal creator, and I need a new year. In the last five years I have taught myself , not without frustration, many new things. I have learned WordPress, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, along with e-commerce. Let’s just say they didn’t have computers when I was in school, college or the workforce. Change and growth are good and I never want to be one of those poor souls so set in my ways that I just throw up my arms and refuse to try.

I should mention that there are a few exceptions to my rule of learning, *time and *calendars. My kids laugh at me when I scold them about their wall clocks not on the right time. In their world wall clocks are just decor not a needed household item. They are use to checking the time on their phones and that’s a habit I have not acquired. I have all of my wall clocks , all three of them, place where I can see them as I walk into a room and glance easily as I leave a room. This habit took me well over 50+ years to acquire so it’s stuck.

The second is the calendar. At school the teachers always had a large classroom calendars, in college – an assignment or date book, when I was raising my kids the school calendar on the fridge was gospel. (Now as I type this I’m thinking that’s probably why I’m such a visual learner) I still use a paper calendar even though I do now how to use my iPad calendar. I have been using the paper version for over 50+ years too. I’m crazy about those large desk calendar that cover most of my work table in my studio. I can jot down lots of things in lots of big print, and just when it really begins to look bad- BAM – I tear it off and a brand new one is there for me. Clean and white with no scribbles.

From grief came inspiration..... I created these crosses out of frustration years ago when trying to find something to decorate family graves. Stores only had grave decorations available around Memorial Day and everything was costly and impersonal. I enjoy creating these crosses and I am happy to personalize a cross for your loved one. My crosses are made with recycled materials & packaging is simple and recycled. Floralmemorials.Etsy.com Floralmemorials.scottsmarketplace.com

  1. Yup I totally understand you! I never had computers either (well we did but it was like seven for a whole large secondary school). Computers weren’t important. I still use a diary can’t stand iPad calendars. And yup I still have clocks that I actually read … 🤣🤣🤣
