A year in photos.

A year in photos. One of my favorite end of year blog posts. This is my 3rd year participating in Ashley Sisk’s year end photo round up (my past 2 years: 2010 and 2011). I always love wandering through past photos, and this is always like a scavenger hunt. I hope you all enjoy, and if you’d like… join Ashley 

1. Me!What are you most proud of accomplishing in 2012? Goodness, just making it through the holidays was an accomplishment. I have never been so busy in my life! A ton of orders, blogging, life, and selling at a local craft show.

2. I Love Youpicture of your husband, boyfriend, children, pets, etc.

3. Still Laughing… – I’m still laughing at these two girls. Jess and Stephanie. We stayed up past 3 am playing Mad Libs. Yup. It was hilarious… because we used dirty words. Yeah, we’re a bunch of 5-year-olds.

4. Winter Wonderland – This photo is as wintery as things get. We had one day of snow, but I didn’t take any photos. Santa screams winter time, to me.

5. Birthday – My kiddo’s 3rd birthday.

6. Friends

7. I Was Inspired… – I was so inspired by my trip to Alt Summit last January. It was an amazing learning experience, and I met so many talented and amazing people. I can’t wait to go again, and I’ll be speaking this time. Whew!
