This post might get long, but I’ve enjoyed looking back at what I’ve done the past year. I wrote 99 posts in 2012, averaging about 10 a month, since I started blogging in March. Sometimes all I think about are the things I want to get done instead of the things I’ve already finished, so reviewing my finished projects has renewed my sense of accomplishment. Here are some highlights from the past year:
I attempted to sell crafts at a local store. The button bracelet project was a failure: my roommate liked hers and a co-worker bought one, but business never took off. I did get an awesome stash of buttons out of the project so it was a winner for me.
I overcame my fear of zippers and made several clutches for friends.
My confidence in making a zippered clutch led me to make this embroidered denim clutch. This is one of my favorites of 2012 for sure.
I started refashioning and ended up with a few keepers.
I made some things for the small members of my extended family.
And I even used some real patterns with non-thrifted fabric. Making more “real” items is one of my 2013 goals.
And that’s all for 2012! (except for the things I finished last year, but haven’t posted yet…) I’ve been working on my 2013 goals and am excited to get that post together next.
