A Year in Review

I love being able to look through my 2009 blog posts and Flickr pages to remember what I did this past year! Here are a few highlights:

In 2009, I took an art design class, a couple drawing classes, and a silver smithing class.

It was actually quite a productive year! I am looking forward to starting fresh in 2010 and switching gears in a couple areas of my life. I am also looking forward to seeing what next year brings for all of you, my blogger friends. I hope you all enjoy a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!
