new year.. new ... start

first decision on the first days of the year.. not to be so emotional on the december to come.. be cool and objective about things to do.. gifts to buy..or craft.. I first started by organizing my pc .. too many photos.. not used..not good enough to be used.. not titled.. I have found.. some more pictures of the new year's decorations around the city..
stars.. lights..

red.. green..this one is at 2.30 am 01.01.2007 .. two and a half hours gone bye.. from the new year.. this is Taksim square.. globes.. and traffic.. can you see behind..

there was such a traffic that we had to park the car far away from the square and... walk..

taksim is the square where 4 main boulevards are meeting.. one of them being the Pera street.. I showed you photos of this street before.. during day time..

days never end in Pera.. it is the night club area.. and as no cars are allowed.. you have to walk.. ideal for 'pub crawling'.. as the english say..

there are small bars everywhere.. blues bars.. rock bars.. popbars..

that's where we headed for.. after the party with the family..
back at home in the morning.. we have spend most of the day sleeping.. in bed or in front of tv..

later I looked through the gifts once again..

the one I like best.. most.. is.. the writing set.. a nostalgic one.. complete with the ink..

can you guess the colour of the ink.. purple of course..

now it is time for a wish for the new year..

remember my spot under my tree-in-the-house..

my tree is shedding leaves.. and here is an inspiration for the new year wish..

I wish me- you- we all leave behind.. fallen.. broken.. sad memories and events ..

and can face the new year.. being as prepared.. and organized as a new start.. to a chess game..

as I mentioned organised.. I should be going now.. to organize.. my long forgotten craft room..

get rid of the gift package rests.. ribbons.. tags and so.. and have a new start.. to the new year..

hope sharing some crafting in the days to come..

Never forget though that emotions are a good things, we are rich when we are able to feel them.
Happy New Year.
