I started this little crafty blog on January 15th 2008, and never realized just how much fun it could be, and just how many people I would end up meeting online and in real life. I have lots and lots of new bestie blog friends which is fantastic!
Who would have thunk (is that even a word) it, that when I started up, I would end up at this point on blog post number 523 for the year.
I’ve decided to list the crafty highlights of my year:
There have been meme’s:
On My Desk
Just a Minute
What I’m Wearing Wednesday
There have been lots of softies:
Hearts for Mirabel
Softies for Mirabel
The Toy Society
There have been CD Swaps and Art Swaps and Pay it Forwards
I joined in for crafty adventures with other creative souls:
Thornbury Craft Bonanza
Purse Making Class
Hoppo Bumpo Stencil Along
There have been lots of crafty things to make:
Bibs and Blankies
There’s always plenty of food to share
There were lots of lovely and generous packages in the mail
My op-shopping addictions and expeditions became much more severe and frequent and I found a new op-shopping partner-in-crime!
I opened The CurlyPops Shop and actually made some sales – thanks so much to everyone who supported me in this.
I failed in my attempts to crochet, but I did actually learn how to knit.
I bought waaaaaay tooooooo much fabric
I learned how to use my overlocker
There was the super fabulous month of Blogtoberfest… what a hoot, and 71 posts that month
Happy New Year
