2015 Already?

Is it just me, or was 2014 six months long? The year just poofed away, right under my nose! I'm pretty sure that's what happens when you reach a certain age. Wrinkle cream, here I come.

As short as it seemed, the year was a productive one for me creatively. I tried many new crafts like paper clay, machine embroidery, and stumpwork. It would be awesome to stick to just one craft with the hopes of getting good enough at it to please myself, but that'll never happen. My hands want to make all the things.

These projects were some of my favourites.

2014 blew through like winter in the south, but I got a lot of stuff done.
