My blog birthday post is always one of my favorites to compile. I love looking through the blog posts from the last year and re-living the highlights. This blog is truly a creative diary for me. Looking back at the last four years gives me so much joy. To have this format to share my life with so many others and find so many like-minded people never ceases to amaze me! If you'd like to get all caught up, see my first birthday post, my second, my third and now here is my fourth! What a fun ride it's been. Thank you to all my blog reader's. You inspire me and motivate me to keep sharing myself authentically in this little corner of blogland. I'd love to hear about what have been some of your favorite things about visiting this blog. It's also become my tradition to share photos of my favorite local inspiration spot Nature's Harvest in my birthday post. All photos are from their marvelous store. There are also lots of links embedded to link you over to my other posts over the last year. Enjoy!
This year I created one of my favorite scrapbooks ever. I printed out over a hundred pictures of my favorite estate sale finds and compiled them all together along with a bit of journaling about where I found the item or what it's significance is. I love how it turned out!
I shared 16 random things about myself here.
My big project for the year was my Year of Color blog. It was a lot of work and a ton of fun. I hope that those of you that have been involved enjoyed it. I look forward to a new project next year!
Started a style journal and became journal buddies with Hope. Am looking forward to continuing to work on the concept of style in this class next year.
Traveled to ArtNest in Utah and hung out with some of my favorite people and made the most amazing projects! It was a wonderful retreat.
Discovered my style statement after working through the book in my own journal. Then attended a firestarter session this summer with Danielle LaPorte.
I was honored to be published this year, here and here and here. I hosted a huge online book release party for Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey. I hope to self-publish another book this coming year.
Journaled about where I'm at in my life right now.
Interviewed Anita Kaushal. Her books are so inspiring!
Took a birthday challenge. Have to admit, it's definitely been a challenge and I've caved at times. However, I'm keeping my head up and am going to keep striving!Attended the Junk Bonanza for the fourth year and Silver Bella for the third year. I cannot wait for next years junking event. It's going to be bigger and better than ever. Can't wait to tell you more!!
Thanks again for being here, it means the world to me!
