1 Year: Thanks & Reflection

Today I have been blogging for 1 year. Last summer when I joined the Cricut Circle I started visiting all these wonderful blogs where amazing crafters displayed such inspiring things. I had shared a few of my projects on the message boards before, but a blog? ME? Well, I went for it and I am just so glad I did.

In my first post I wrote:
"This blog will be what I want it to be! It will be for me, my family, friends, enemies (if they really want to check this out) and people I am looking to get to know. I will talk about things that matter to me: my family (let's just say right now Sophie will be a main feature), scrapbooking, teaching, books and more!"

I do not think I have talked about any books, but other than that. I think my blog is exactly what I said it would be. My daughter is in basically every scrapbook layout I share (can you tell I adore her) and so many of the things I do for school are here as well. This blog is mainly for my craft projects, but seeing as they are all inspired by my life I guess it just works out.

Thanks for joining me the past year. I have gotten to know some great bloggers and love visiting new blogs still. I have been given so much love on my projects which only makes me want to make more. Again thanks for visiting and I hope you will stay with me as I share more.

Today I want to share the 10 projects from my first year as a blogger that are my favorites. I thought this would be a great way for me to look ack on my first year. You can link to the post under each picture. Thanks again for joining me. Tomorrow is the first day of my new blogger year!
