fabric pattern weights and a Happy New Year

only one more crafting day left in 2011 <3
in a discussion at i mentioned my goal of using more commercial patterns in 2012. one of the ladies directed me to a different post where someone had made pattern weights.
i followed the tutorial and made 8 tonight. i will make more eventually if i find i need more to cut my pattern pieces.
i had everything i needed to make these on hand, right down to the beans! and it only took about 10 minutes.

i have been working hard trying to prepare for my New Year's Resolution:

last night i pulled every article of clothing i own out of my drawers and closet and decided what is fine to keep, great to upcycle, needs mending, and ready to be donated. i have significantly reduced my tshirt drawer, my first big step towards my goal. i have been playing with make-up practicing new looks and techniques.  i have been brushing and styling my hair. i am so ready to grow up and excited to keep this resolution!

Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!
