Here I am ~ just a little bit later than normal ~ taking a little nostalgic trip back through the highlights of my blogging year.
I love that I am able to look back at the Button Tree Craft archives, as it gives me a chance to be reminded of all the lovely everyday things that otherwise might be forgotten if they were not blogged about.
January 2012 ~ baking Gruffalo cookies with the small people. Baked to perfection and covered with chocolate sprinkles for fur and enjoyed with a nice cup of tea ::
February 2012 ~ I managed to knit my very first pair of socks ~ and was feeling very pleased with myself ::
March 2012 ~ Still enjoying the beautiful flowers that I received for my birthday ~ I really do want to try and have fresh flowers in the house more often this year as they always look so pretty ::
April 2012 ~ I went on some very lovely but very wet walks in the April showers wearing my new green and blue stripey wellies ::
May 2012 ~ I knitted some stripey Jubilee socks in the garden whilst enjoying the glorious May sunshine ::
June 2012 ~ I added a few more stripes to my Little Boy Blue Blanket ~ this blanket is still waiting to be finished ::
July 2012 ~ I added some more squares to my Summer Garden Granny Blanket ~ this blanket is also still waiting to be finished ::
August 2012 ~ We enjoyed some lovely Summery days on the beach ~ we are so very lucky to stay in such a beautiful place, with all this on our doorstep ::
September 2012 ~ I knitted myself a pretty lacy scarf in cosy blue merino wool ::
October 2012 ~ We went on a trip to Alton to visit family and enjoyed a lovely day out at Alton Towers ::
November 2012 ~ I knitted a seaside inspired scarf for my Advent Swap partner ~ Ada Bea. This was my very first attempt at coming up with a pattern of my own ::
December 2012 ~ We took a ride on The Polar Express as an early Christmas treat ::
I have really enjoyed this little look back at 2012 and reminding myself about things that made 2012 a special year for me and for my family. I love the fact that blogging allows me to keep all these special memories close by and that they will be there for my children to look back on when they are older. Thank you to you all for sharing this little journey back in time with me too ~ I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Wishing you all a very Happy 2013 :O)xx
