I'm trying not to be sentimental

...but everywhere I look, people are doing a review of their year.  Well, as you know, I'm a great follower and so have given some thought during the course of erm today, as to what I could do to review the blogging that I've done this year, and make up a few links for your reading pleasure.  And then even I got bored by the sound of my own reading voice and decided that if you need a review of this blog, you can scroll through the archives and sample the odd post without being led to what I think was best.  Particularly as, most often it's the comments that are the most entertaining. And that gentle reader is where we come to the sentimental part....thank you, for reading any of this at any stage throughout the year. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment at any stage on any post...I know it is time consuming and very very often your words are tactful and kind in the face of some awful crafting and bragging.  Naturally, I hope you'll join me as 2013 throws up new stuff to blog about and changing desk surfaces to pick over on WOYWW days.  
Happy New Year.  May it fulfil the anticipation that we can't help but feel, huh.

Ha ha!! I couldn't (be bothered) to find links for some of my favourite bits either... though I did a couple. Thanks for being one of the highlights of my year though, both in cyber space and reality! Much love to you and I hope we can meet up again in 2013. Helen. xxx Oh and your crafting isn't at all awful!

I'm rather hoping to avoid throw up in the year 2013, but that's just me... I wrote a Dear John letter for my year end post. Yep, it's true. I broke up with a craft store. We had great times, but it was time to move on....

Leslie Hanna said...

I am so very sorry I LOLd while reading your touching words, but PLEASE don't let 2013 throw up all over us. GAH! NO! Just NO!

Ah Julia am so with you and others commenting above here, I have not done a year in review like others but will confess have enjoyed the ones I have read very much... if I come to WOYWW this week, will be late as things not yet on even keel but soon maybe even by weeks end .. who know and God bless you this year and thanks so much for being a blessing to me in 2013, Shaz in Oz.x

No in-depth review from me (I have enough trouble doing linky things at the best of times LOL).

I wish you & yours all the very best for 2013.

No review by me either, but then I haven't done any blogging since before all the fun started. Thanks, Julia for being a consistent and entertaining blogger throughout 2012. Happy New Year to you and yours.

This did not even enter my mind, am I abnormal? Nope embrace the year make some resolutions and try and stick to them. Try and improve where you can and most of all if anyone doesn't like it, too bad. Laugh, drink, craft and be merry.

Hugs Eliza

Craftychris said...

Happy New Year to you too! I haven't managed WOYWW again this week but next week I will for sure and will try and join in more regularly! Thank you for all the fun you give us xxx

I'm definitely trying to look forward and not back - not much to want to reflect on - and my crafting has been pants - so no 'the best of' will be coming.

I so want 2013 to be different - onwards and upwards and all that.

Thanks for a thoroughly entertaining year from you though. I might not always get round to leaving a comment - because I might read the post in the email that comes to me, but I do try and keep up as much as possible...

Also, I want to thank you for your support and your many kind words which mean so much - more than you could ever know. It means much more knowing that you have so many people you could be visiting instead - but when you visit me, it's kind of a privilage - I do always appreciate it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I like the new look to the blog btw. Very lively and fresh colours - uplifting infact.

sending oodles of love
