Should old acquaintance be forgot...

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 31, 2012, 8:05 AM

Goodbye 2012


Well, everyone and their brother is doing a New Year's journal. I don't want to overload you any more, so I'm gonna do this quick, then feature a bunch of art (no tl;dr this time).

While I could make a laundry list of what was good/bad about 2012, I decided to narrow it to 3.  Feel free to post your 3 best moments in the comments (or link your own New Years journal).

1. After thinking we were done, a surprise pregnancy and baby. What an amazing gift and such a bright spot in the very stormy clouds that darkened 2012 for me.

2. Writing. This was the year I truly re-discovered my love and the therapeutic qualities of creative writing. Even though I suffered a serious block for many months, I am so excited and proud of what I accomplished storywise. 2012 was a difficult year, but frolicking in the worlds of my imagination was the escapism that truly helped me survive some very scary moments.

3. Friends. I grew close to many people this past year (and sadly apart from a few I desperately miss). Those friendships saved my life, in many senses, and I am forever grateful.

And, while not a real highlight, I'm so happy the drama of December 21st Doomsday has come and gone. Let's shake the dirt of 2012 from our shoes and forge ahead into a better 2013!

Love you all!

Fave Faves of 2012



Honestly, with so many wonderful arts coming through my in-box this past year, I could hardly narrow it down. Here's a collection of a few that caught my eye *again* as I browsed my favorites.

My own three best things about 2012.

:whisper: Although it's not said out loud, meeting and getting to know you was one of those three things.
