2018–My year in review

2018 will be over in less than 12 hours. Like so many previous years, I’ll wake up and not much will feel different.

That said, this year brought at least one big change. The boyfriend and I moved in together and we’ve both lived to tell. Not just that, we both agree that we quite enjoy cohabitation! Yay. To seal the deal, we even had/got/acquired a little Monkey. Meet Muncie.

Muncie ready for Halloween.

While in Muncie, I stayed in a house with the *best* wallpaper ever. And, we got to play putt-putt. The beau and I are up to five states. Only 45 to go!

Beautiful wallpaper, right?!
My brother, sister and Mutti’s arm.

I continued to make things. Like my first pair of sock with random bits of sock yarn.

These were gifted for Christmas and have already been worn. Yay!

And, I made more journals.

The innards of a junk journal. Oh, those pages make me smile.

I love this cover. I’m both sad and pleased that it’s found a new home.
The Christmas Story Monopoly game was a great Goodwill find.

I sold close to three dozen keycaps.

Of course there were random pieces of jewelry, too.

Lavender is one of my favorite plants to embed in resin.

All of these cats sold right away. I must make more before May.

I finally used crystal cup chain in bead embroidery. The results are really lovely.
I think this piece will stay with me. I love her so. I need to finish it though.

Look, I even started making kombucha with a scobi given to me by a friend.

I signed up for some Art & Soul classes and a workshop with Seth Apter in Port Townsend next year.

I even got my hands on some lovely fordite cabochons. Thank you Fordite Fix! Expect to see some photos of worked up pendants soon.

And here’s to a 2019 filled with my fun, adventure and fulfillment!
