2015 A Year In Pictures

Happy New Year!  A few days behind, I know….and I it has been a minute since my last post (that will be changing). I hope everyone had a safe and blessed holiday season.  With the new year comes resolutions and while I had some resolutions last year I didn’t meet all of them:

  1. Grow Spiritually  While I grew in this department I could have done more
  2. Read the Bible in a year  Just didn’t happen
  3. Be the healthiest I can be  Signed up with Weight Watchers and lost 10 lbs.
  4. Focus on what I have and not on what I don’t have  This is still a problem for me at times
  5. Improve my knitting skills  That did happen 🙂
  6. Knit a scarf, hat and sweater  Knitted my husband a few beanies, knitted my FIRST sweater as for the scarf they were just ruffle scarves!

Goals for my blog are:

  1. Grow my readership Nope
  2. Increase the number of likes on my Facebook page Lost a few and then gained a few but nothing on a large scale
  3. Engage my readers to leave feedback/comments Engaged a few readers…one being my husband…LOL!!!!
  4. Blog 2-3 times per week LOL!! Definitely did not happen!

 

So what is the take home message?? Maybe I set up TOO many resolutions instead of just concentrating on a few.  I don’t beat myself up about it because we are all human and we are all WORKS IN PROGRESS.  So I am thankful for what I did accomplish and will just concentrate harder on the other things.  In short I just need to step out of my comfort zone and start doing things that scare the hell out of me.  I am not talking about skydiving but doing things through this blog and through my Instagram and Facebook accounts that I was nervous about doing in the past.  For example hosting a giveaway of some sort.

 

During the start of the holiday season I did take park in Vickie Howell’s Fall Knitting and Crochet Photo a Day Challenge on Instagram.  The challenge ran from November 1-30. Each day had a theme and you had to post a picture that correlated with that theme.  It was a blast! I received so much inspiration from my fellow knitters/crocheters and actually started to follow some of them and vice versa.  Posting a photo a day was a little uncomfortable for me because I don’t think my photos look as awesome as the others but with each one I could see improvement!

Here are some of my photos from the challenge and others that I just like from 2015 🙂

So there you have it! I didn’t want to post too many photos (though I may have). However, these were some of the ones I was most proud of!

I would like to wish everyone a blessed New Year that is full of abundance and promise…till next time!
