Personal Awesomeness in my Family

Jacob Graduated from High School and Started School at the University of South Carolina!

My Daughter and Her Husband had their First Child:  Little Honey
 Lilly, Adam and Vanessa's Baby, Came to Live Here

This has been a Great Year!  I believe my favorite part of my blogging was doing the series on "What I Learned."  I saw my paper art improve 10 fold.  I plan on continuing the journey.  

Thanks for all the Follows and Subscriptions this year and for making it 400 of you before the end of 2011!  This is certainly not the end, but the beginning of a whole New Adventure.

Have a Crafty Weekend!
