A Blessed Year, In Review

I have spent the better part of today on the computer, looking back through my Picasa albums from this year.  As I glance over our year in photos, I am ever so grateful.  I thank God for all of the blessings bestowed upon myself, my family and friends in 2011 and pray for His guidance and wisdom as we enter the New Year! 

Blogging has been a blessing in and of itself this year.  I have met some really lovely new friends, been inspired by their enthusiasm and creativity, and motivated by their heartfelt encouragement!  Thank you all so much!  Blogging has also been a wonderful way for me to journal my treasure hunt finds, in order to savor a memory of my favorite pieces that have since moved on to new homes.  When I first started this blog, I hadn't considered that aspect of it.  I've been able to let things go easier, knowing that I have photos to look back on and enjoy...helping me to be a better "treasure broker" and not turn into a hoarder (wink!)  I've also had a lot of fun crafting and creating, sharing tips, tutorials and recipes as well as working on my photography skills.  So, in no particular order, here are a selection of my favorite posts from Girl in Pink, 2011...  You can click on the title below each photo to link to the corresponding post, if you like.

Just for fun, I've created a few collages featuring some favorite finds and projects from the year...  Enjoy!

 I can't thank you enough for joining me on this journey!

Best Wishes, Blessings and Happy New Year!
