2010 in a nutshell…

(clicking on each photo opens the related post in a new window)

hello world…

about a couch…

a favourite author dropped by the comments…

sometimes, things went wrong…

and wrong again…

and, well, you get the idea. awkward.

but i did get to know my camera better…

at times wordlessly…

at other times, i had to share my two cents.

i tried new things: felting, clockwork, vintage trivet mats, recipesquilling, digital illustrations and such…

twitter bird

and hit a few milestones along the way: 50…


and 150 posts.

archive dives were fun. (visit on friday for this week’s topic.)

and i made friends here, both real and imagined…

thanks to all of you for being here, whether you are new, or have been here through the seasons…

it was a good year.

and now, i’m happily up to my elbows in 2011 (it doesn’t take much, as you know about my height already). also, i do want to share a little something i realized over the holidays, but i’ll save that for next time.

’til then, wishing you a very happy new year.

    I’m very new around here, but I look forward to reading about your 2011 adventures! I love your writing style, I totally respect the lack of capital letters, but I don’t think I could do it if I tried, I would have to think too hard to remember NOT to hit shift! Lovely to *meet* you!

    This was a great post! I’ve enjoyed catching up on some of the posts I missed while I was on hiatus (and re-reading the coach saga)… and of course, I love the bird pictures! I didn’t know you’d only started this blog in 2010, but I’m glad you did!

  6. What a beautiful list of things you have accomplished last year. You always make everything so very interesting as well and I love how you look at life. Looking forward to what you have to share this year.

    Aw, this was a beautiful recap. I love the “family keeping it real” post, my friends are the same way. They are not shy about saying they hate thrifting and think my blog is boring :D Looking forward to your 2011 posts.
