It's that time of year.  We're getting ready to close the books on one year and start fresh with a clean slate.  I've been busy organizing my desk and work space - creating order out of chaos and gearing up for another busy, productive year.  At least I know I'll be off to a good start in the new year. 

I'm not one to make resolutions for the new year.  I prefer to take it as it comes, to roll with the punches.  I try to value each and every day because today is all I have and tomorrow may never come.  This past year was loaded with many challenges and obstacles.  There were decisions that had to be made, and I had to make some difficult choices.  Life is full of choices - some easier than others.  While I have no regrets and won't dwell on the negative aspects of 2010, I'm more than happy to bid this year adieu.  I have vowed that I will leave 2010 reflecting on the positive.

Thankfully my most pressing choice this week has been deciding which color to use for my new booth sample.

The downside to being a dyer - if there is one - is that I have so many color options.  I'm surrounded by different yarn blends in an array of colors.  At times there are too many choices.  I've narrowed it down to these four and will see if I can settle on one by the end of the day. These are the fun choices in life.

Mother Nature did not disappoint with the storm earlier this week.

The winds piled up a snow drift in front of a second floor window and created many beautiful snow sculptures.

The storm provided my color inspiration for the week, a gray and white combination that is seen only in winter.

Icy lace.

Wishing you all the best in the new year.  May your choices be easy.
