Happy, totally wonderful and fabulous New Year to you! I wish you everything you wish for yourself.
I am here to do the first 2013 post for MTDS, I’m the first person up to start of the New Year. I made this little notepad for my friend that is mad about sending me ‘Did you know…?’ texts.
If you want to know what I used then pop on over to the main MTDS blog for all of the deets.
In writing my post for this I learnt that celebrating the New Year is a tradition that dates back nearly 4000 years. If you had lived in Mesopotamia and Babylon 4,000 years ago (c. 2000 B.C.), you probably would have celebrated the new year in mid-March, at the time of the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. If, however, you were an Egyptian, your new year began with the Autumnal Equinox and the flooding of the Nile. If you were Greek, the Winter Solstice began your new year celebrations. I’ll shut up now lol.
I’m entering this little project into the following challenges..
Retro Sketches using this sketch..

Here’s to a fabulous 2013!!
