What a wonderful year it's been - one filled with surprises and happiness and new beginnings...and maybe just enough heartache to appreciate it all. 

Every New Year's Eve is a little melancholy for me; sadness over time passed too quickly and hope for all that is to come. I've never really been one for the big celebrations & glitz- more just reflection & reaching out to those I love. 

And in this little handmade world, I am really so thankful for this wonderful community of friends & colleagues & cheerleaders - who are a continual source of inspiration & encouragement. 

Sending wishes for a year full of happiness, fulfillment, & appreciation.  Cheers to 2011!

I really think that being a part of etsy this last few years has transformed me into a different person. I tend to appreciate things more, the things that I took for granted so many times in the past.

I am grateful for the friends I have made made in you and the local portland girls as well as the fund times we share online. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a a person and share your craftyness with everyone. You truley are a genuine soul and I am glad that we are friends.

I really relate to the melancholy feeling. Time just goes by so fast, I wish I could savor it a little more. Happy New Years, I hope 2011 is fabulous!

I'm so glad we are friends. Thanks for all your support and encouragement. Looking forward to a creative 2011. And maybe I'll make it up to Portland and we can have a glass of wine together--after the baby comes!
