A few of you have asked if I’m going to do the spending hiatus again this year, and the answer is yes, definitely, without a doubt...but not yet.
While I traditionally like to kick-off my period of non-spending on January 1st, there are several events this month that I'm convinced will doom me to instant failure, so I’ve decided to postpone starting the hiatus until February.
First there's sweet Millie's belated birthday soiree... With a birthday just a few days after Christmas, I fear Millie will inevitably get the shaft in the party department if I don’t make a conscious effort to do something every year (+ one of my recent goals was to plan a party for Millie that felt as special as Audrey’s.) I’m currently scheming a little cowgirl fete (inspired by the images above), and there are wee plastic horses and balloons and cowboy hats to be bought.
So there’s that.
So there’s that too…
Are you going?
I’m attending (and participating in a panel), and I’m thinking there’s a (slight) chance, I might need one or two new things (like the aforementioned clutch) before I head off to meet a slew of design bloggers in person.
So you see how January is really not a good month for not spending, right? (Feel free to chime in with all sorts of enabling comments here…)
But February is the month. For sure. It’s on. Anyone else in?
