Another Year Ends

Wow! I think I say this every year, but this one sure went by quickly. Just a few more minutes until it is 2013. 2013 will be a special year for me as I will be celebrating my 50th birthday.

2012 was really full. I made a bit of progress with my various resolutions, but kept getting side-tracked with other things.

What I did do with my 2012:

Went to my first TNNA show in January. It was the Winter show in Phoenix.  I attended as an employee for a vendor friend and to assess if I wanted to join TNNA.

I decided to join and was accepted to TNNA in October.

I spent a good part of the first 3 months of 2012 pulling together sponsors and support materials for the 2012 CGOA Design Competition. This was my first year as one of the co-Chairs of this committee.

It also kept me really hopping at the New Hampshire Chain Link show (Knit and Crochet Show) at the end of June. Lots of set-up and moving the winning entries to various showings during the course of the conference.

An unexpected project I was working on in 2012 was a booklet for Leisure Arts that will be coming out the beginning of 2013. That kept me very busy during May, June and July.

I had 15 designs published during 2012, only 4 were self-published. So I’ll be revisiting that goal in 2013.

I also created 15 additional designs that are scheduled for publication in 2013, not counting the 10 designs for my Leisure Arts booklet. I’ll let you know here in my blog as each design comes out.

Happy New Year dear Readers.
