2012 A Year in Review-Part1

So we are almost at the end of the year. I know I have said this every day for like a week now, but wow.  So here is my review of 2012 for you. I am having fun doing this. Today I went back through my blog and am giving you glimpses of the highlights of this year that is wrapping up.
It is a mix of photos and art and just about anything that makes me smile-top photos, top events-nice art!!!
By the way- I am splitting this over 2 days posts but it is still a LONG post.

Beach walking-it was a great winter for it last year
January Thaws
organizing- a constant chore
hockey-the season the Maine Black Bears did really well
IKEA road trip- ready for one now actually!
Putting a journal together
we leave for Arizona in February
A fabulous Fenway hockey game- when we beat our rival team (UNH) in overtime and it is 52 degrees in January in Boston!!!
And a bit of art

Love how I finally figured out that I could embossed right on the card

Love this light page with both embossing and clear die cuts on it.

More embossing on this card, and these great images from Stampington.
I also love the glittery trim.



Light and airy. These feathers are stamped on acetate (Hero Arts).

Travel Journal-basically prepared and ready for our trip

Valentine's project

New England Patriots logo
a very disappointing Super Bowl

silly card

An excellent adventure and a not so excellent flu around travel time
and I got to see some real saguaro cacti. Love it!

Hockey east and NCAA finals. Exciting and disappointing too! But in 2013 I don't think this is going to happen.
a real spring March- buds are super early this year

needing spring- March is often a tough month for me but this year it was pretty mild and easy.

finished travel journal-I especially like the way this one came out.
and I celebrated 
a birthday too!


travel tag glue book-used up some ephemera from a trip to London and Paris several years ago.
Think I will do this again.

a trip to the Peabody Essex museum over my break with a good girl friend
