It’s the eve of a new year and I am full of hope and thought. It’s as if this is the beginning of spring, planting in our selves. Thoughts and ideas being pushed underground, dreams that we hope will come true, goals that we want to blossom and prune to perfection in the coming year. Where will this year take you? What unknowns are in store, what paths with you follow and where will they lead? What adventures will you have; what trials will you face? Questions swirl in my mind as I prep for a night of fun to ring it all in. December 31st seems to be the one day of the year where living at once in the past, present and future is not only expected but encouraged. It’s a night of new beginnings when we can reflect on the past, plan our future, and party in the present, a magical day indeed.
Last year I did a guest blog featuring The New Years Wish Jar for My Crafty Spot and I am so excited to sit down with a glass of bubbly and open all of these little scrolls and take stock of the year. I am sure I will re-roll a few of these and throw them back in the wishing jar, some I may toss aside replaced by more appropriate wishes. Some I will celebrate victoriously, for it has been a grand and special year indeed. Through the ups and downs we are, after all, still here readying ourselves to welcome another year with an open mind and loving heart. Check out my New Years Wish Jar here!
To help you ring in the fun, I have a simple craft you can make this very moment. All you need is paper, tape, and scissors…oh and a little glitter if you like some sparkle. These crowns are sure to make you feel like royalty when the clock strikes midnight.
You will need:
- Cut out a long piece of paper, measuring and cutting to fit your head
- Tape the ends together to make a circle (only needing to last the night, tape is quick and perfect)
- Decorate with glitter
- Wear and party hearty
Happy New Year Readers!
