working on it

One of the many projects on my list of things to FINISH, is the editing and uploading of the last of the photos from my Project 365:2010, daily photo project. I'm only 15-months or so behind. Better late than never, right?

So...that's the plan. Only 95 photos to go.

one little word

I am not a person that makes New Year's resolutions, but I do like the idea of choosing one word that I can focus on through out the year. I have chosen a word in the past and this year I have done it again.

I guess, in a way, you could call it a resolution.

The word I chose for 2012 is FINISH!

That means....

FINISH what I have already started.
FINISH anything new that I start.
FINISH projects. 
FINISH my classes. 
FINISH this post.

2011: A year in scrapbooking

I only managed to scrap one page and make one card in 2011. That's really not even enough to bother writing a post about, but since it has been YEARS since I have scrapped a page (and this blog did start out as a scrapping blog after all) I figured I needed to write a post about it. If not only to remind myself that I did indeed scrap one page (and one card, I can't forget about the card) but also to complete my trio of year in review posts.

Here's to hoping that 2012 has a lot more scrappiness in it.

2011: A year in yarn

I worked on a lot of different yarny projects in 2011, but by the end of the year, I only managed to completely finish three. For me, that is actually pretty good. What makes it even better is that a couple of my completed projects were large ones.

2011: A year in photos

As predicted, it really is hard to post a year in photos post when you don't really take any pictures during the year. This is the first year that I didn't participate in a daily photo project and it shows. I went from taking a photo a day to almost none for the year.

But, that's okay. We didn't really do anything to take pictures of. This past year found us mostly at home. With me taking non-stop classes, there really wasn't much we could do. So, we watched a lot of Netflix and I did a lot of studying.

The beginning of January was a sad one. A mass shooting is not what one wants to have happen in their hometown.

The in-laws sent me flowers for my birthday. A very nice surprise.

Teeny tiny green leaves started to grow on our tree (So happy we didn't kill it) and we finally found a painting for our wall, that we both loved.

Lots and lots of studying (with only 5-weeks to finish up a 15-week course).  And the only photo I took the entire month, was this one, of my cat.

The husband made yummy meals and creatures have been exploring the backyard.

My parents celebrated 50-years of marriage.

The husband's brother came for a visit.


I scrapped for the first time since 2009 and the backyard was invaded.

Skies were stormy and I started work on a yarny Christmas present.

Unseasonably warm days (some in the 90's) and I did a lot of shredding. Paper clutter, be gone!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with family and then had one of our very own.

Christmas was very low key this year, and at the end of the month, the year ended on a lazy note.
