Life Lately...& 2016 Reflections

December was a crazy and crafty one - my best friend's wedding in Atlanta, attempting to do Christmas-y things in Chicago, Housewives shows and NYE in Milwaukee. Whats the holidays if its not hectic?

All those years of Birchbox came in handy for my gift wrapping this year. I made homemade marbled clay bowls and perla (melty) bead ornaments for all my friends and female family members, soooo 90's (pictured is only half the bowls - I started making them in October).

So in conclusion.... 2016.
Normally I would write a separate post about the year, but this year, while personally was a good one full of creativity and love, was maybe not the best for the world. There were plenty of "no's" and opportunities lost, this year, both on a personal scale and national scale. But I still have hope. And as of right now, I'm still free to pursue my dreams. And I want to make people laugh and feel good.
To quote Emma Stone in La La Land, "Here to the one's who dream"
Cheers to 2017.
