What I Accomplished...

Exactly one year ago today, I hurried to create a list of "Crafty Goals of 2012." I remember telling y'all that I had written this list, but I never shared what those goals were. One year ago, I felt like my list of goals was so unattainable, so impossible, and just so unrealistic. I was too embarrassed to make the goals public, for them to be judged, and for me to be criticized.

The goals have been hanging by one piece of tape on the side of this shelf for one year (see it? by the crab lady?). August rolled around and I had not been able to cross off a single goal. I had worked so hard for 8 months and my list was still looming over me. It was just another 2012 resolution that wouldn't be achieved.

My little list started gaining some check marks once September rolled around. I received my first email that a card would be published (Paper Crafts Mag in February 2013), I won my first challenge (Play Date Cafe), I was invited to be on a design team (Play Date Cafe), and I was most recently featured in a Paper Smooches Patrol feature.

The only one I can't cross off? Keeping the scrapbook up to date. Go figure.

I know I have had a wonderful crafty year in 2012. I have had so much fun creating, sharing, and meeting all of you lovely bloggy ladies. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and endless inspiration.

Cheers to 2013!
