Every year carries out like a roller coaster ride,
Experiencing new and old as it slides.
2021 was similar ups and downs,
Yet moments of fun still got to abound.
I won’t dwell too much on what has past,
Just a smile and nod as I lift my glass.
I’m happy to be here and pleased you are too,
So let’s start with a “cheers!” to 2022!
As per usual, I’m slowly easing into the new year as my brain is running rampant with plans and ideas to carry out for another year of cobwebed adventures and toast-worthy moments in 2022. There’s so much I want to do, but I’m also trying to kick of this year with more of a realist’s approach instead of getting overly ambitious and then disappointed by my lack of following through with all my inspirations.
A Brief Pour of 2021
2021 was rather kind, but mentally, I was all kinds of emotional. I completed my Arachnid Astrology collection, pulled off an amazing week full of Be Kind to Spiders Week posts, celebrated one year of siblinghood with Little Monster and Lil’ Boo, did a ton of collaborations with fellow spooky content creators and started a podcast! It didn’t feel like I actually did much, but when I look back on it, it’s quite a bit!
The Cocktail Menu for 2022
I still have a craving for more costume creation with a sketchbook full of ideas and plans. In fact, the end of 2021 allowed me to check a longtime cosplay wish off my bucket list! However, this year is the year of getting finances in order. This means that quite a few sewing projects will stay on the backburner unless I inherit a small fortune from some distant great aunt I didn’t know existed.
However, my AMAZING husband gifted me A Bar Above Mixology Certification course. You can bet that means a lot more specialty cocktails are going to be popping up here and with Sips & Spirits. I’m very excited to dive more into mixology and share all the fun creations I have in store for you.
And of course, webdrobe reviews will continue! Those cobweb items don’t find themselves. I will also be adding in some toast-able reviews as well from cocktail mixes to recipe books. I have a few things I’ve discovered that I’m eager to share with you.
Grab Your Glass
I’m looking optimistically at 2022. There are quite a few opportunities heading my way and some fun plans I hope to carry out as long as I can find the time for them. But let’s just enjoy the drink being handed us right now. 🥂
What fun are you looking forward to in 2022?
