2012 already?!?

Happy 2012 Everyone!
I hope your holidays were filled with cheer. 
Now that Lil Cinnamon is a bit older (4 months now – wow times flies) I’m getting a little bit more time to do things.  She naps longer and sleeps through the night, well most nights.  Fingers crossed it stays this way!
Also Mr. Sangria had 2.5 weeks off at the end of December as his company was closed for the holidays.  That gave me tons of time to get my house organized and such.  So I’m starting 2012 off with a clean slate, almost.  There is still some hoarding/clutter going on in the Sangria household as I can’t quit cold turkey!  But at least now most of my time won't be devoted to organizing.
I’m normally not one for making New Year’s resolutions.  I find them a little hokey.  But call me hokey this year.  By golly, I’m keeping this place clutter free and I’m doing something creative more often.  I should clairify that my house is not dirty, you can eat off the floors,  the problem is clutter and mail.   I curse the credit card companies that send me pre-approval letters on a daily basis.  I have a huge shredding stack that gets larger and larger. 
Back to the point of this post.  Mr. Sangria bought me a necklace back in November that I wear daily.  It has Lil Cinnamon's initial and a diamond.  Love it!  But it’s a wonder that necklace hasn’t been snapped off my neck by now.  It’s only a matter of time as we’ve had some close calls already.  It’s small and dainty but sometimes something else is needed.   So I made this scarf.  It’s great for year round wear.  Summer or winter.  As this 83 degree heat we are having today has me confused as to what season we are in.  Lil Cinnamon can grab and pull all she wants and she won’t break it.  I think it will look great with jeans and a t-shirt.
