New is always better!

Hey there cutie pies! :hionigiri:

Heres to an eventful 2013! I wish all my Readers the very best for this New Year and hope you had a magic holiday season~

Spindle tree… so pretty :twinkles:

How have you been doing so long?
2012 has been quite the stirring year for me with a lot of work and not that much free time and I’m afraid 2013 will stay as demanding as last year but I can’t wait to give my best and make this year exciting and prosperous.

Some of the lovely presents I got :rabukuma:

I’m in Italy right now but instead of helping trimming the vines and enjoying the sun Im writing my paper about Shinhanga for the Japanese wood block prints class. Today though I woke up with the feeling I couldnt let one more day go by without some serious blogging and catching up!
So here I am~
I know that you’re probably tired of all the Christmas pictures by now and I’m really late this time but since I almost completely renounced taking pictures of all the festivities there are only a few to show. Sometimes it’s nice to be the person without a cam and just relax and let your eyes enjoy the beauty and joy without a lens between the world and the eye, don’t you think? :catexclam:

Probably the best egg salad sandwich I’ve ever eaten! :ha:

One thing I never miss during Christmas time is candle dipping! There are several places where you can learn to make your own candles, colorful or just plain with beeswax and usually I love doing the colorful ones but this year (due to uni) I only had time during one day and since dripping candles can take more than one day, I decided to make simple beeswax ones.

Have you ever tried candle dipping? It’s very meditative and beeswax smells so good! As a child I loved to dip one finger and let the wax cool down to have a shell of my finger… And obviously I still love to do it. :klimper:

And how did you spend New Year’s eve? To be honest, I didn’t go partying and stayed at our house in Italy. I enjoyed looking at the fireworks down in the valley and had some hot chocolate. :smile:

That’s it for now! I have soooooo many blog posts to catch up to and I can’t wait to do so :on:
