The first step was to get my mojo back by going to the hairdresser for a proper cut and colour. I've been trying to save money by doing it myself but that was not really going very well (which is why I had to cut my head off in last week's Show and Tell).
The next step was to turn on the Travel Channel and start dreaming about getaways. After my trip to India last year I promised myself that my next voyage would be someplace much, much easier. I say that after every crazy overseas adventure that has me hiking through jungles and mountains at 6 am, but this time I really mean it. Right now I'm dreaming of Bora Bora. I was planning on making it happen in the spring after the rainy season there but my sister asked me to go to Vegas in March, which isn't my usual type of trip but I'm actually really excited to go. So, I think Bora Bora will wait until the fall with Vegas up first.

Just a cute easy top with some pretty shimmer in it for a casual dinner out.
I had originally planned on making this for my shop but I fell in love with it as I was sewing, so it's mine now~
Again, this fabric was intended for something in the shop, but I wanted a fun and easy caftanesque piece and this fabric was the perfect fit.
And this last one I made last summer but since it's the same idea I'll share it with you.

wears at the beginning of Sex and the City 2)
Leave a comment and let me know what you do to keep the winter blues away. Today was a balmy -24 degrees (Celsius, and yes that is a minus sign in front), but I think as long as my head is in Bora Bora I'll be OK.
I'll be posting at the linky parties so make sure to check out the party tab up top.
And don't forget to join the Spool Party if you've made a Spooling project!
