Earlier this week I went back through my year's worth of blog posts. Blogging is great for my business but even more so it's a great way for me to journal my life. It's a lot easier than filling up journals like I did as a younger gal. Back then I locked them up and hid them--now I publish them on the internet. Hmm....
writing out some Laura Truths. My favorite? E News is the only news I watch on a regular basis and I'm okay with that. I know I'm not the only one and no matter how much I say I don't care....I HAVE to know what the Kardashians are up to. :)
first legit collection. Up until this point I had mini-collections of a few pieces but never really dreamed, detailed, constructed, photographed, and advertised an entire 20 piece collection. My first collection was called Pocket full of Posies and I still love most of the items. Pocket full of Posies did amazing things for lillypie and really pushed my business and time management skills!
I'm an emotional woman and in this post I write about the things I feel. Emotions are the BEST part of me--and I have to remind myself of this often.
Swag Swap of 2011. It was and is a GENIUS idea and I'm realllllllly realllllly reallllly looking forward to this year's swap. Lots of swapping for handmade biz owners and KILLER coupon codes for you non-etsy-ers. (wink!)
This summer I slowed down lillypie. I soaked up my time as a stay at home mom for a few months. I still took orders, but slowed down on the production time and this blog started to be more family posts. We went to Nags Head NC with extended family. I adore the memories made and cherish our photos.
This is a lifestyle blog and I really enjoyed sitting down and writing out lilly's birth story for her 2nd birthday.
glitter nails and braided crowns and LOVED them. I'm not sporting glitter nails this winter, but I do braid my bangs at least 3 times a week. Perhaps it's time for a new trend....
first major show. It was more work than I ever imagined and it was also a great big ball of fun. I can't wait to try more shows this spring and summer!
Logo designed by leonora and look forward to the year ahead, both with lillypie and my family.
Happy New Year, friends!
