Happy 2014! New at The Sassy Starfish



Happy New Year!  2014 is an exciting year for me and The Sassy Starfish.  This year will mark my 30th Birthday, and my fourth trip to the United Kingdom and Europe.  As I have for the past several years, I have made several resolutions.  

** Live the creative life…. this includes writing and reading daily.  Hopefully, I can cut out television significantly this year.  I am completing the Good Reads Reading Challenge for the fourth year in a row.  I am hoping to read over 100 books. 
** Learn to sew.  Blow the dust of my machine and get busy!
** Finds some more great vintage pieces.  Keep up with my thrifty lifestyle I started in 2013.  
** Scan all my family photographs.  I have the scanner, and now I need to get busy!

Here are some new posts to look forward to this year as well!


Sewing Sagas

As I mentioned in my resolutions, I want to learn to sew this year.  Nothing seems more retro and domestic than sewing.  I was really seduced into sewing by the cool projects on Pinterest.  So I hope to create posts about the projects I attempt and complete.  This will be from my point of view as a true beginner and I would like to share my journey with you. Look forward to projects, vintage inspired pieces, and insights onto the history of sewing.  



Thrifty Business

My friend The Muddy Mermaid and I are going to go more in depth on our thrift store adventures with this monthly series.  It will be full of tips and insights from us.  As well as some reviews on thrift stores/flea markets in our general area.  All items are on the table to discuss including: clothing, house decor, cutlery, furniture, books, and jewelry.  

The Sassy Starfish will continue to feature the normal Fun Finds and Wish List Wednesday memes.  Also, look forward to some great history and genealogy posts this year.

  2. I love the idea of scanning all your family photos! Our January theme at MSWB is "Start!" That would be a great blog post to inspire other women who are wondering what they can do with their photos. Willing to submit a post for us! Hey, we'll even accept a FF and a post for the theme!
