I suppose I should have done this before 2012 actually was upon us, but things have gotten a little lackadaisical over here with the holidays and all of this nothing we have scheduled. Regardless, I like to have a little look back at the year and what I managed to create and make and accomplish in my little crafty corner of the world--just because I perpetually feel like I did not manage to accomplish half of what I intended, given the way life has a way of interfering in all your best laid crafting plans (and also, the need for sleep). However, I did manage 6 or so tutorials (favorite among them was the Nature Explorer Bag), saw the publication of 4 books that contained some of my designs, put out my own little crafty project set (Spring Variations), and did some serious re-stocking my Etsy shop in time for the holidays.
Of course, I already have some big plans for the next year, including a new project set (Autumn Variations), 1 or 2 other plushie patterns I have had lurking in the recesses of my brain for some time now, and, of course, a few more tutorials for all of you. No doubt I will find plenty of distraction along the way to keep me from doing all I set out to do, but that is part of the crafting game. You make some, but you can never make it all...there's a little fortune-cookie-style wisdom for you.
How about all of you? What are your crafting plans and goals for the new year? Got a little crafting glimmer in your eye just waiting to come to fruition?
