Other crafty and bloggy accomplishments:

I started my Etsy store, The Silly Pearl SHOP!

And I had my first craft fair experience, something I’d been wanting to do for so long!


What didn’t I accomplish? Organizing my craft corner. Womp womp. So that’s on my resolutions list yet again! (will spare you a picture of the current mess).

I also hope to be doing more vintage befores and afters. Our garage depends on it. (again, no picture…ugh.)

One more thing…I want to learn to crochet! Thanks to everyone on my Facebook page for the video suggestions! Click here if you’d like to see what everyone suggested.

Here’s to another year of craftiness! Thank you readers, whether you’ve just joined in or have known me from even before this blog, for a wonderful year.
