In no particular order I have 12 of my fave things I made in 2012. 2012 was a stand out year for me for many reasons and not many of them were good. I have to be honest and tell you that I was glad to see the back of 2012 and I'm not a person who relishes the passing of time.
Some of the ladies on the forum were doing around up of their 12 of the best of 2012 WMS (I think Pauline may have sparked the idea), and I had a quick peep through a few of the links. I was surprised by how many of the cards that I hadn't actually seen before. I probably shouldn't admit that, and I started by feeling kinda guilty about the fact that I hadn't been in touch with many of the challenge entries that we had last year. As time permitted I had a peep now and again, but I found that I was out of the loop most of the time (through my own busy schedule) and that though I managed a few sporadic comments, I never even got a chance to play along even once.
I thought I might follow the forum ladies and play along with a 2012 round-up and I am so glad that I have taken a few moments to grab some images of things I made last year that I was pleased with. I had pretty much surrendered 2012 to the dark side, it was the year my wee mum passed and it conjures images of sadness and loss for me, coupled with frustration and helplessness. Finding images of cards and projects I made last year that pleased me was like looking back into the woods and finding a little breadcrumb trail of shiny moments. I find that crafting is good for me, it helps the cogs turn, keeps the forward motion going, even if it is slow.
So here's to more shiny moments in 2013!
