Year End Round Up 2016
Each year as the days get shorter, the temperature gets lower and it starts snowing, I get this feeling of disbelief. Where did the time go? Doesn’t it seem that we just started a new year? Now it’s almost 2017. Hard to believe.
One of the reasons that I like blogging on a regular basis is that it keeps me making things because blogging is boring without photos and it also keeps a record of what I have created. Whenever I look back over a year’s time, I realize that I got more done than I thought I had. I completed all the studio challenges this year, I taught 3 online courses and continued to write more, I tried a bunch more new techniques with my surface design group, held an ecoprint retreat, worked on administration tasks for outside teachers to teach on our online class site (thanks Teri and Galina), hung an ecoprint show with my local group, carded batts for a class I ended up not teaching and still found time to run my shop/gallery, volunteer for several non-profit organizations, ski, hike and enjoy life. I am so grateful for the abundance of creativity and joy in my life.
I thought you might like to see a little slide show of some of what I did this year. I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the new year!

No wonder your year whizzed by – you were very busy making lovely stuff!
Thanks Lyn! Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful new year!
I couldn’t agree more with your statement that blogging keeps you crafting, i find this is true for myself. It makes it worthwhile when you get nice comments and drives me on.
Thanks Briony! Yes, all the lovely comments are great, aren’t they? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Very busy year indeed. I’ll have to figure out how to do a slide show. Merry Christmas!
Thanks Marilyn. It’s one of the choices when you make a gallery. It’s in a drop down list after you choose the photos.
Thanks Ruth! I’ll have to check that out.
You have been a very busy lady Ruth. I don’t know how you do it all.
Thanks Ann, just keep doing what I can do every day. 🙂
I loved those baskets you made with the Hessian, Ruth, and the tips for finishing off the landcsape paintings. You’ve had a really productive year! I hope next year is as good 🙂
Thanks Zed! Best to you in the new year as well 🙂
