Reflections on the Last Year

It was mind-blowing the other day when I figured out that Alex and I have been blogging here for an entire year. It seems like yesterday that over plates of Mexican food (or maybe it was sushi?) that we hatched a plan to create a place online where we could share our crafty pursuits and hopefully make a few friends of like mind. It has been an amazing experience for us and we hope that we have been able to be entertaining and enlightening for our readers.

Over the past year we have covered topics ranging from crafting to cooking to the weird things we geek on, like The Rapture and Pioneer Soap Making...just to name a few. Actually, we have recently archived some of our geeky favorites in the Misc. tab above. Feel free to peruse our weirdness!

Thanks for being a reader. We get just as excited today as we did after our very first post when we peek at our stats and see how many of you stopped by to see what we we're up to. It makes it all the more fun for us...and that's why we do this, for the fun.

We have some really great ideas that we would like to explore in this next year. Tutorials, patterns, reviews, giveaways, and, as usual, there will be lots and lots of distractions. Stay tuned...

We have a winner!

Speaking of giveaways, we have a winner of the corn yarn. Congratulations to emarci! We'll be in touch right away to get your mailing address. We can't wait to see what you end up creating!

Thanks again for being here with us...
