2010 recap [part 2]

part 2 of my recap gets a little crazy...summer of 2010 got real busy and things continued that way until the holiday break. it was a good kind of busy...but quite tiring [in case you missed part 1 :)]

i joined etsy houston, became the blogger, and a leader of the newish group.
we even had our first meet-up! i've made some pretty awesome friends through the group, too :)

daniel and i left on our [grant] trip to greece, etc.
it was an incredible journey.

 upon my return from greece, my mom, sister, and i took a trip to visit our family in miami :)
 and my mom thought she was so funny.

we also celebrated my cousin's engagement...and did some wedding dress browsing...

 alternating nail polish became my thing :)

my grandparents visited texas, and loved our new home :)

work started. and i was no longer part of the teacher crowd :-/
i like my new position. but i'm still getting used to it.

i started attending the houston roller derby rec league practices.
 and made a lot of awesome friends.

and eventually made the rec league team. :)
 aaaand attended a couple bouts!!

i was on tv for the 2nd time in my life.
[the first time was sabado gigante when i was 17. ha!]

my obsession with foxes became known :)
and handmade necklaces...

i carved a pumpkin for the first time in a decade.

and took a million pictures of my amazing dogs in all sorts of outfits.

made some super sweet biz cards.
 3...maybe 4 times :)

and participated in kind of a lot of craft shows.

i started a super secret sewing club with a couple students...which is so much fun :)

i put up my very first christmas tree :)
in my very first home.

and i went a little crazy with the electronics...

i've been very lucky this year. and i am going to think of a way to give back :)

2010 recap [part 1]

a lot of things happened in 2010. i have been an extremely lucky girl :)
here is part 1 of 2....
2010 in cell phone photos :)
2010 began with a move. after switching homes yearly...we finally have somewhere we are staying...for quite a while :)
i will miss my little heights bungalow.
but this is a much larger place that belongs to us :)
that we made into a home.
the newest addition to our family, osa, grew a lot in our new home.  her personality has developed into the sweetest little cuddle bug :)
[but she is still the bounciest of all]

i turned a very young 27....
and perfected my face scrunch. hahaha

lots of sketching in 2010. and lots of lists.
read a lot of crafty biz books.
and took a really cool e-course.

daniel and i went on an amazing roadtrip through oklahoma and arkansas.

i wrote and received my first grant :)

i used to rollerblade with buster when i lived with my parents. i decided to start up again, taking each of my 3 dogs separately. i had a little trouble with sam at first :)
[click to enlarge. made tiny for those of you with easily triggered gag reflexes :)]

i flew on a private plane..for the 2nd time. :)

i went to renegade handmade for the 1st time. [and their first time in austin!]
there, i bought a ton of awesome goodies [including the dress above], and met james and elsie.

part 1 concludes with 2010 creations :)

bipolar bunnies...smaller and cuter!
 sold some texas pride, and opened my shop up to custom state orders.

 worked on some cute stamps :)

 and "perfected" [for now!] my mustachasaurus.
stay tuned for part 2...the most exciting recap of all!
