2010 has been such a ride for me. I started this year off with the hopes to grow as an individual. …and that I did. There have been tons of changes for me, good ones. Great ones, actually. 😉 Here are some random memories from this past year:
Favorite moments of 2010: Dad’s surprise party, winter CHA, Canada trip, official paper work, Sean’s graduation, ferris wheel ride at sunset, various publications, the Monterey Aquarium for Scott’s birthday, Reflections in Newport Beach, crazy one day trip with the dogs, California Academy for my birthday, the Texas heat and scary June bugs, many trips to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz, setting the date, Hawaii trip, my baby craze, opening my scrapbook store, design team work, teaching classes, meeting awesome new friends, Disneyland, World Cup fun at the bar, my 30 lb challenge, making the American Crafts design team, San Diego memories, Periwinkle weekend with the dogs, the zoo, Lego mania, Bodega Bay camping, Jenner/Fort Ross drive and the huge eucalyptus tree…
Gosh, as I type this I realize that there’s so much that happened this year. As a matter of fact, it would take me way too long to write all of the memorable moments down ((that’s why I scrapbook to cherish all of those memories, hehe)). I seemed to have done this and that, traveled all over the place, and managed to still open my store in THREE WEEKS. What in the world?! It may sound like a lot, but it truly was manageable, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. 😉
Some random layouts from 2010:
…and just like memories, there are pages upon pages of 2010 layouts that I would love to share, but I pretty much posted 75% of them on this blog (or in various galleries or in a handful of printed magazines).
This upcoming year, I plan to create at least 52 layouts, one for every week. Do you think that’s doable?! Hmm… I’ll keep you all posted with that goal, lol. 😉
