I'm sure you're seeing a lot of these year-in-review posts on your favorite blogs this week. I love doing this myself because it reminds me of everything I've done within the year and things I'd forgotten I'd accomplished. If you're new to my blog, these photo mosaics also allow you to see what I typically share on my blog and what sorts of things to expect in the new year (along with - hopefully - some fun new things, too)!
These photos represent the first quarter or so of the year. As you can see, I shared lots of my vintage collections and thrifty finds, we got a pet rat that we named Ramona, I created a Needlepoint Purse DIY for the CRAFT magazine blog, I tried my hand at the growing trend of nail art (which I inevitably couldn't keep up with because of lack of time and just my general non-talent with nail polish!), I shared some Dutch Comics that I found (and my growing love of all things vintage Dutch, which would be a forerunner to my Netherlands trip in the Summer!).
I shared my adorable new business cards (with portrait designed by Rachele), I shared some vintage shop finds on our trips to Memphis, Tennessee and Tampa, Florida, I let you in on my secret desire to get a tattoo(s) and the inspiration I'd been compiling for said tattoos (unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to justify the expense of getting one quite yet!).
I shared some photos of my home, I played with dolls, visited and photographed a local vintage bookstore, shared more photos of my 2011 trip to Palm Springs, California, shared Ethan's Aunt's adorable chicken friends, and of course shared some photos of my sweet boys and their activities.
Three more year-in-review posts coming up!
