Happy New Year!


"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

I love New Year's. A fresh start, a new hope, all that. There is something about the promise of growth, potential, and dreams that leaves me smitten with possibilities every January 1st. And, yes, I make resolutions.... well, maybe not resolutions in the conventional sense, but more like a life assessment: what do I like about my life, what can I stand to improve, and how can I love people better, live my life with a deeper sense of purpose.

So, happiest of New Years to you and yours! Tell me, do you celebrate with gusto or begin your year with resolutions?

Oh, and yes, as promised, I have some unique items I said I would be offering. I have a list of things I wanted to create for Mia or myself, but these leaped into my mind and I had to make them. They are not exactly one-of-a-kinds, since I have 4 pairs, but pretty close. They are burgundy, not red. The flowers are made from hand-felted Scottish wool. You can see another picture here. Please allow 5 business days plus shipping to receive them. International customers will be issued an additional shipping balance.

I can't get the paypal button to work! It always seems to happen to me....I tried to buy the size four but it won't even open paypal at all....*sigh*

Jessica Haley said...

Jen, I'll look into it... hang on. :)

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

Jess if they are still available, I can send you a paypal seperately, it doesn't even open in a new window so I'm not sure what's going on...

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

Happy New Year, Hana. Let me know when you're in Houston, and we'll get together. I saw your New Year's post--Ow owwww! ;)

These are so cute! Love that you put the shoe pattern on etsy - any chance you will be putting them up in bigger sizes some day?!

Jessica Haley said...

Jenni,

That's a good question. I don't know. I won't list any patterns for items that I am actively making. Whether I list patterns in larger sizes.... I'm undecided. Offering patterns is a very new venture. It was fun to be creative in graphic design programs, rather than with a needle and thread for a little while. In short, I really don't know. The honest truth is that I created the patterns simply for exposure and because I didn't want my shop to be perpetually empty. So, as for larger sizes and additional patterns in the future, at this point, I'm not sure.

Ok, that does it! I'm going to have to sign up for your twitter updates!!!:) I can't believe i missed out on these!! So freakin' CUTE!! I would have loved a pair for miss Paris-Noel!! Any chance you'll make more? Oh, and do you know when you'll be putting up more of the Hansel and Gretel boots for sale? I absolutely just LOVE all that you do!:) Have a Happy New Year!
