This weekend a friend and I went down to Monte Vista, Colorado to the Crane Festival. Thousands of Sandhill Cranes, Canada Geese and other birds stop over and feed in the corn fields in Monte Vista for a couple weeks before continuing their migration North. I love all the sets of perpendicular lines in this photo and how they make me want to jump back inside it!

The start of a new year always brings looking back on the past year and looking forward to the new year - did you complete last year's goals and what will you work to attain this year? So here's goes for my goals!
1. To complete a 365 day photo challenge
2. To complete enough crochet projects in order to be a part of a bazaar next December
Every year I wish I would have used my Blipfoto account more, so this year I'm going to post my photo a day to Blipfoto. Here is the link to my Blip home page.
Through the Click It Up a Notch blog, I've also linked up with some other photographers who are working on a 365 challenge. I think it will be a great way to see other's work and to encourage each other along the way! Click the button below to see the other photographers working on this.
I also spend a bit of time every December wandering through all the holiday bazaars that are around town, and every year I wish I had worked on some items that I could have sold at one. This year, along with my list of gifted projects to complete, I hope to have some items I can take to a bazaar. Thanks to a fun pattern I found on Pinterest and some extra crochet time during the holiday, I already have a bit of a start.
I really love these candy cane striped Christmas stars and think they will look really cute tied onto a gift and then up on a Christmas tree! Thanks to The New Crochet for the awesome pattern. The only change I made was to use a button and 6 inches of ribbon for the hanger inside of crocheted chains.
2014 was a great year with exciting adventures, and through the grace of God I know that 2015 will be full of blessings as well! Have a wonderful New Year!
