Thinking About 2011
Well, to start with I can barely remember what I did yesterday, so it's a little daunting to try to remember a whole year!! Secondly, I can't believe that 2011 is almost over. It just seemed to fly by. When I did Ring A Day last year it seemed like it took much longer!!

But let's see what I can conjure up...
My family has been pretty steady... 3 boys all in college, my husband still owns a music store and is still playing poker, pool, and golf... this part probably covers the last 3 years!

Honestly, and hopefully this doesn't sound too corny... but my strongest memories of 2011 are being a part of online metal groups like Etsy Metal. Taking part in the monthly challenges, writing the monthly blog topics, project runway, work of art, charm swap... not to mention the info and camaraderie, on the forums. It's been so great to be able to be a part of it all and I've learned so much. 

Also taking part in Ring A Week although I have to admit I've been a bit of a slacker and I am waaaaay behind!! 

And lastly, but definitely not least, participating in the Flickr group TADA. Having made some great friends there and staying connected, seeing what people are working on on a somewhat daily basis!! And collaborating on shows and sharing ideas. 

It's amazing how well you can get to know people on the internet!! 
Sometimes I forget that I haven't met you all face-to-face!
