2010 in review..

A little late...but I've got there..

What a year!

Thank you my dear blogging friends for being there for me.. for taking the time to leave comments. Your friendship is truly appreciated..xxx

There were lots of crafting & blogging in 2010, trying new things at the start of the year like art journaling & zentangles, online courses & meeting bloggers in real life at classes.. what fun!

Looking back through last year's blogging was quite reflective as I remember some sad times as well... & you were there for me.. thank you from the bottom of my heart...xx

I will share a few of my favourite posts..... bearing in mind I'm a Gemini... so my cutie crafty twin was arguing with my grungey twin what to add to the post! hehe..
