Happy New Year – 2012

This little blog of mine is one year old today, and oh man, what a year it has been!
For the handful of you that have hung around since the beginning, you may remember that my initial goal was to make 365 projects in a year. I knew it was ambitious, but I thought that I could at least make it to 200 or so before it was all over.

Well, this past week I went back through each post and counted up all my projects.
Any guesses what my grand total was? 
 A whopping 96.
How sad is that?!
I didn’t count any of the recipes, sewing techniques, or pattern tutorials, but it is still a far cry from my goal.

I’m trying to console myself a little with the fact that I knew absolutely nothing about blogging when I started, I’ve been busy baking another little monkey for the past 6 months, and we moved not once, but twice during the past year. But, I learned so much in that time about blogs, crafts, computers, photography, and even kids, that I’m still proud of the small amount that I’ve accomplished. 
Now I can use this first year of blogging as a base line and keep working harder to get better in the future. I have already planned out a schedule that spans the 3 months from now until the baby arrives, and I have high hopes that will keep me on track a little better. My only concern is what will happen after the little one arrives and turns our world completely upside down! One step at a time…
A huge thank you to all of you who have chosen to follow me on this crazy journey!
I want you to know that I truly appreciate each one of you, and cherish all of your comments.
I read every comment and e-mail you send, and I try my hardest to send a response, and visit your blog if you have one. If only there were more hours in the day to cook, clean, kids, craft, and computer! 
Maybe I’ll discover the “super-mom secret” in the coming year ; )

Happy New Year to you all!
