New Year’s Resolutions: recap 3 months into 2014

I decided this year that I was going to set myself goals that I felt were achievable as my 2014 New Year’s Resolutions. Some of them were going to require hard work and determination, but I know that in the end, it would benefit me, body and mind. So just a recap to see how I’m doing so far.

Happy Chinese New Year and Kung Hei Fat Choi to all my friends and fellow bloggers who celebrate this occasion! May the Year of the Horse bring everyone prosperity, good health and happiness around the world! I apologise for the lack of updates recently, I’ve been really busy at work and this weekend has been busy for me, trying to finish off the origami lilies and getting ready for CNY.

In my family, it’s customary to have water lilies, narcissus and peonies in the house, but because it’s not as easy to get these flowers from your local supermarket and having to worry about whether or not they’re cat-safe, I decdied to use the origami lilies I was working on with Heather at Yankee Doodle’s help to bring in CNY.

When my friend told me about her intentions to make origami lillies, I was excited to start learning how to make them.

My next craft project: Origami lillies

I haven’t really had a chance to do much that would help me relax, ever since I finished my glitter court shoes and flats, I’ve been raring to go and start a new project. I’ve got my material to start making my jersey midi skirt, but first I need to clear space in my room to start cutting out my fabric.

Another project that my friend mentioned that really caught my attention was her intentions to decorate her flat with fairy lights. They were going to be adorned with origami lillies – stargazer/Oriental pink lillies are my favourite flower, but with the kitties we can’t have them in the house because they are highly dangerous/poisonous to them. So when she told me about her origami lillies idea, I had a lightbulb appearing above my head that would allow me to have lillies in the house which would also be safe for the kitties.
