2012 … the year in review at shaken together

I love these sort of posts! I love taking a look back over the past 365 days at the crafty projects, the recipes, the growth here, what tickles your fancy and what crazy stuff lands you here!!  I did a similar post last year – take a look at it HERE!  But for now, here is a run down of some milestones, some favorite posts and more from 2012!!


So, how about some fun blog stats and happenings?!  With excessive exclamation points!!
  • This makes the 265th post in 2012 – 100 more posts than last year!  Crazy!!
  • I added over 2400 Facebook friends and over 400 GFC followers?!  WHAT?!  Ya’ll are awesomesauce!!
