We're headed off to my mom's house for a couple of days to celebrate the new year, how nice it will be to get away for a while! But before I go I wanted to wish you a very happy new year's! I'm so excited to get started on 2010 and look forward to accomplishing some big things next year!
I thought for my final post of 2009 I would list some of my favorite posts from 2009. I started this blog in January and thought it would be appropriate to do a sort of year end review, if you will indulge me of course. :D (Post titles are linked to the post, click read and enjoy!)
January - "Scraptastic!" - Total old school layouts of my Toot back in January. She was 3 months old in these pictures.
February - "Whole Lotta Nothing Going On" - Nothing much going on in this post either but I do use Toot as a way to get more comments. I think I'm funny anyway. :P
March - "The Most Dramatic Blog Post Ever" - Like I write in the post, this entry is so much funnier if you watch The Bachelor (which starts up again next week WOOOOO HOOOO!) There's also a layout of Toot that I still am in love with, what a cutie she is (to me anyway), lol.
April - "Friday Night Fab Five: This Happened I Swear! Edition" - I include a lot of embarrassing information in this post, don't say I never give you anything. :P
May - "Someone's In the Kitchen With Scrapbooks" - Some layouts from the kitchen cookbook/scrapbook I did for a friend's mother. I am really wanting to do this for my family's recipes one day!
June - "Sleep Poet, Unsleepy Maggi" - Holy crap, my very first visit to Sleepy Poet Antique Mall! One of my favorite places on Earth for amazing vintage goodness...
July - "I'm Dreaming of a Blog Christmas" - I had so much fun hosting my Christmas in July blog party! My fingers are still recovering from their comment leaving...
August - "Toot Take Manhattan, New York Part Two" - I am admittedly my own harshest critic. Ironically, I also think I am hilarious. (Am I using "ironically" correctly? Ah, blah whatever) So pardon me as I chuckle at "Toot" writing her first post. :P
September - "Tootie in the Sky With Ice Cream...And Lies..." - I still love this layout I did based on my Granny telling a big fat lie and getting caught for it. I can't wait to tell Toot this story when she's older.
October - "Welcome to the Blog of Horror...Enter If You Dare..." - This was the second of Vanessa's blog parties I participated in and I had so much fun with this post. I still think my Playlist of Horror is truly terrifying...
November - "This Is The Post that Never Ends" - I truly appreciate every award and/or tag I'm given! I have to admit though that I got the biggest kick out of answering the questions for these tags. This post also proves you should never try to blog when you're tired, things tend to get loopy...
December - The end of the year already?!
"Inspiration From the East" - I find artistic inspiration from so many things, most recently Japanese street fashion. The colors, the shapes, the styles all bring to mind things you can use in scrapbooking, art journaling or whatever your artistic poison may be...
And there you have it! The whole year in one blog post! Maybe I should just do one big long post at the end of the year instead of writing all the time...LOL ;) Thanks for a great year everyone! If I don't talk to you before, have a happy and safe New Year's...
See you in 2010!!!
