2013 was a great year for me in many ways – I graduated AND got married! – but there were lots of sad and stressful times too. I’m looking forward to this year being a little more quiet and easy-going, once we finally get settled!
Crafts – As I always do, here is a look back at the crafts I got through in the last 12 months:
1. Andrew’s T-shirt blanket
2. Crochet hexagon blanket (still in progress)
3. Puppy jumper
4. Bec’s T-shirt blanket
5. T&A sign for the head wedding table
6. Wedding invitations
7. Origami flowers – about 200 of them!
8. Wedding table centrepieces – all the jars were decorated with cut-outs, ribbons, sheet music and candles
9. Red shirt refashion
10. Travelling leaves scarf
11. Travelling leaves hat
12. Knitted Christmas tree
Food – I didn’t do a lot of exciting cooking last year while I was living with my parents, but I have a few new favourite recipes that I tried out that I’ll be sharing with you soon.
Reading – I read a pitiful 4 BOOKS. That’s terrible for me! I blame it on the distracting TV in my room! 2014 is already better, but more on that next time.
Wedding – It’s all over, and it feels like it was a really long time ago! My hands still feel like they need to be making flowers, and I still check my emails more often than I should expecting to hear from vendors, but that will lessen over time! If you haven’t already, go and have a look at some of the photos. I’m well and truly over weddings now!
Life – Being away from Mr EP for the bulk of the year was a strange feeling, but thanks to Skype we were able to talk almost every night. A couple of days after graduating we headed to Melbourne for Bec’s wedding, and my parents went away on a Hawaiian cruise for their 30th wedding anniversary! But as well as those exciting times, my family went to 4 funerals last year, (including the minister who ran our pre-marriage sessions and said grace at our wedding – he was taken far too soon…) which really is 4 too many.
Blogging – My top posts for 2013 were Origami Flowers (still at number 1!), DIY Butterfly Sleeve Tunic, DIY Jewellery Cleaner, DIY T-shirt Blanket, and Apple-Cinnamon Pancake Muffins. I’m excited about a new style for my blog for 2014, which is in the works!
Farewell ‘13 – bring it on (gently…) ‘14!
