New Years Eve, I can never stay up, and I always take down the tree on New Year’s Day.
It is not bah humbug! It is certainly not that I don’t love to see the tree, I do. I love it, I love the welcoming glow, the warmth of the colours, the memories, the beautifully wrapped gifts, I am always excited and can’t wait to decorate when it comes to December, and Kit and I do put the tree up early.
But, for me, they have to be gone before beginning a new year, carefully wrapped and stored, or I find they impede fresh inspiration, and leftover decorations that move into the New Year seem slightly dingy and out of place. A clean palette I suppose.
I have so many ideas racing around my head as I go into my studio (tidied before Christmas), the clean surfaces beckoning for some kind of greatness. The jugs and jars neatly stacked, brushes cleaned, paper tidy.
Of course the normal run of ‘Calls for entries’ dictate to a degree, and have to be planned, but what else will I create before the tree goes up again? I’m excited!
Have a Happy, Healthy, Inspirational and Creative New Year!!
Yours warmly, Gloria.
