Farewell 2012! The 10 Week Recap

I'm really enjoying all the "Best of 2012...." posts out there this week. I'm still a baby in the blogging world, so it's really fun to see what I missed earlier this year on my favorite blogs!
 
 
I won't be sharing a "best of 2012" wrap-up for Creating A Life. 
I did my first public post only 10 weeks ago. Prior to that, I had done a few posts {to practice how to do a post!}. I humbly admit that my teenager, who has been blogging for some time had to teach me,  AND I might add, has loaned me her camera constantly since mine died many months ago.
I'm grateful to my Mikayla for her patience and help, and I sure hope I can get my own camera again this coming year!  



I hadn't even told anyone I had a blog yet, then on October 21st I did a post entitled Always Creating  and shared it at Knick of Time Tuesday that week. I was pretty happy when Angie featured it the following week! 
 


Since then, I am continuing to learn so much, and I have already connected with some of the nicest people in the world, both here and through my Etsy shop, The Penny and the Pearl.

I'm not going to share any impressive stats or talk about my big numbers-in fact my little numbers are all due to the generosity of BIG bloggers with fun link parties! :D
   
I'll just say farewell 2012 with more of a 10 week recap! Sounds silly, I know : ) 
Here are some photos (in no particular order) from the last 10 weeks of posts. 


 






























































I am just a teeny tiny fish in an enormous blogging sea, but I feel like I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I love being here, and I can't wait to see what the next year brings for me and my kids and Creating A Life!

Wishing you all a happy and blessed New Year!

With love-

Jeanette

  1. You may have only been blogging for 10 weeks, but your blog certainly doesn't look like that to me! I would have never known. I've only been blogging for 4 months and I, too, have a lot to learn. So glad I found you early on! I really love your photos and content!

  10. I enjoyed my first stroll through all of your photos.

    Love your blog title. I am a teacher and our superintendent stresses to our families that having a job provides a living, but an education allows you to create your life.

    I will be back.

  11. Looking at your blog it's hard to believe you've only been blogging for 10 weeks. I'm a first time visitor, having found you through Debbie's Newbies with a Twist Party. I'm following your beautiful blog and intend to spend some time here today reading your past posts. I'm sure I'll enjoy myself. Blessings. -- Nancy
