34 Things Since My Last Birthday – Because I Love Lists

Oh my goodness! The end of November 2012, already? I have my birthday in November, so now I have turned 34. Since I am very fond of lists and retrospective round-ups, I’m posting a random list of 34 random things I have done since my last birthday (here I would like to add, in a fit of completely unnecessary honesty, that I typed 24 instead of 34. Three times in a row… Meh).

Since my last birthday I have:

  1. had a goal to do something creative every day for 365 days
  2. not done something creative every day for 365 days, but a lot of them none the less, and have had the most creative year in a long, long time
  3. handmade a lot of gifts for friends and family
  4. shipped some of my handmade items from my Etsy store all over the world

  1. sounds like a nice year:) wish you an even better one for nextyear:) your are indeed 24, I won’t believe you are 34 until you show me your birth certificate
    (btw: you mentioned my name way too many times..)

  2. If you had your birthday in November, that means I missed it. :/ Aw shucks. I’m sorry! Happy belated birthday! Did you get anything nice that you had wished for? :)

    How nice to have a pen-pal! :D I love that sort of thing. Used to write long handwritten letters back in the days of my childhood, but now an email means just as much. :)

    I hope everything is well with you (seems to be?). I miss you! I wanna get together, but where can one find the time? Do you know? Give my best to Jed. :) Hugs!
