Looking back at 2012...a year of many makes!

Sometimes when I look back at a year gone by, I try to mentally catalogue all that I've achieved in that year, but it's sometimes a little blurry and one forgets so many things! So, I decided to sift through the photos I had taken in 2012, little reminders of all that was made, enjoyed and dreamed up! I thought I'd share a few of those pictures with you today. My creative journey this year has been a wonderful one, and only once I paged through all the photos did I realise just how many things were crafted, created, sewed, up-cycled and done over!
