Happy Healthy and Creative New Year


Healthy new year, originally uploaded by -syko-.

The new year has started with (the usual) resolutions of a new healthier life. Me and my friend Jenny have decided to meet every Sunday at ten for a long walk. We agreed that we needed a certain time and day to be able to make it a weekly hobby. No cheating allowed. Autumn was quite stressful for many reasons and included too much unhealthy food. So my other mission 2008 will be to make the kids love beans and lentils as much as I do.

2008 will be a very special year for me, it is the first year as a full-time business woman (that definition of me makes me laugh out loud) and I am full of excitement. I am very happy to tell you that my work will soon be available in a new little shop in Helsinki, called Pulu ('pigeon'). More syko news soon!


I had to pack away my studio for Christmas so I am slowly building it up again. Going through all the crap takes time, but it sure is healthy, at some point you just have to let go of old projects. Can't wait to start working on some new ones, my head is bursting as usual...

I look forward to another blog year with you, can't wait to start creating again and share the joy with you all! Here is some of my sewed joy from 2007.

p.s. the deer glass is a thrift store find, cost me 10 cents! The white beans are going in a soup tomorrow.

Could you get my husband to like them too?!!?

In the southern US, eating beans (well, really black-eyed peas) on (we'll say "around") New Years is a tradition - you get a dollar for each bean. :-)

I've been on a bean kick since Christmas too. But the kids just won't touch them. Not even when I told them kidney beans were dinosaur eggs!

Well, it was worth a try...

I can't get my kids to love lentils, as much as I do....maybe it's a grown up thing?
Happy New Year and all the best for 2008
