2007: A Pretty Decent Year


I read 24 Novels.

I read 8 (or more) "how to" books.

I bought my 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Japanese crafting book.

I learned to can veggies.

Redecorated my bedroom.

I made my first Jam.

I learned to silkscreen.

Hosted my first serious swap (handprinted fabrics, doncha know?)

Started Using Bloglines.

I learned to needlefelt.

I had my first pattern published.

Made my 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th handbag design.

Made 7 tiny dogs, 2 monsters, a naked gnome, 10 birdies, and some bug people.

I made 13 New Vintage articles of clothing for myself...
and found lots of new blog buddies because of it.

I finally got into the double digits of sold items on Etsy.

I met 2 really cool Bloggers from SF.

I was on tv in CraftLab reruns, twice. ( Don't know what happened to the other episode we taped.. oh well.. Maybe next year?)

Met 4 Craft Stars in person.

Made 27 new recipes.

Made 34 Holiday gifts by hand... Not counting cookies or food.

Posted 103 times.

Did some half-assed gardening.

Cleaned out my craft cave twice.

Had a pet tragedy.

Tried again and adopted the Best Evil Kitten In The Whole World.

Picked for Whiplash once.

Participated in Handmade Parade, and C is 4 Craft.

Went to the Maker Faire.

Taught my kid more about modern art.

Let him see Rushmore even though it is rated R.

Helped him get on the Honor Roll 3 times.. the first 3 times it has ever happened.


Not Bad... Not Bad, at all.
I am trying to clarify my goals for 2008... But I just wanted to take a minute and look back...
It was a satisfying review.
Let's hear it for 2007!!

Now, Bring On the New Year! (Would someone get that dang tree out of here already?)
