home sweet homemade 2012

December 28, 2012

bloggers have somewhat of an advantage when it comes to reviewing joyful moments and creative accomplishments because our blogs are the equivalent of a photographic journal.


before I get ahead of myself and chart out a long list of projects I’d like to tackle in the coming year, might as well take a breath and smile about this year’s completed efforts.  so, here goes–

stitching on paper

there are never enough hours in the day – i could keep myself busy with crafting activities ’round the clock if it was humanly possible 🙂

Thank you for your company this past year.  I love sharing my little projects and earnestly hope the love shines through in this blog.  Extending wishes for peace in the coming year.

    Beautiful yearly review of your creative crafts, Diane!

    I LOVE how you presented these images in collage form!

    ” I love sharing my little projects and earnestly hope the love shines through in this blog.”

    It sure does, girl! I can always feel the LOVE within your photos and words!

    Thanks for an AWESOME 2012, and all that you share and offer here. I look forward to another year in 2013!

    ((((( You )))))

    Much X to you and Cristybella!

    Happy New Year and Cheers!

    Wow…….good point! We are at an advantage to go back and take stock of the past year’s ‘stuff’. We have web logs and record the highlights.
    Well, at least you do. *laughing* I record the darndest things! 😉

    Ron’s right–very cool photo collages to show off the year’s fun stuff at a glance.
    And think of all the flutterby’s we’ll get to watch next year! 🙂
    Keep the camera handy!

    Thank you for a wonderful year of shared projects and beauty.
    Joyous New Year to you and yours.

    All great projects~I love that sampler. And I still want to make a driftwood candelabra. But there isn’t a lot of drift wood in the high desert plains of Idaho. 🙂
