it's been one year...

About a year ago, I started this blog. The best things I have done in life have been the most challenging ones, and I can say that this blog has been one of the best things I have done for me. I have grown so much in one short year and done things I never would have done before.

I revamped my craft room.


I learned how to embroider


I rekindled my love for cross stitch


And of course I created way too many bookmarks


There have been so many great things to come from this blog. I have met so many creative, inspiring people. I've learned how to take better pictures. I've started and finished more crafts than any other year of my life. I have learned things about appreciating my own style and that of others. There have been deeper things I have learned too, but I am not sure how to articulate them in writing for all the world to see. It's something I have been thinking about and am going to try to share in the future, but for now I just want to acknowledge this milestone as it is - a whole year of creating and sharing. This little blog has just been such a positive thing, and I am so happy that I hit the publish button a year ago. 

I owe a great big thanks to every one of you reading. You inspire me to keep going and make me feel accepted. Maybe that is a weird or lame admission, but it is good to know that I have crafty kindred spirits out there. Thanks for reading, commenting, and sharing. It has been a great year.
