2010 was a good year

Gosh, I’m getting a little misty-eyed looking back on 2010.  Here’s a little look back from my perspective on everything Noodlehead.

  • Got to participate in Celebrate the Boy 2010 (and looking forward to Celebrate the Boy 2011)
  • Rolled over 1,000 followers, I was beaming, still am…here’s my little secret, I told myself I could quit blogging after I reached 1,000, guess that didn’t hold true, and am glad for that.
  • Spice up your Kitchen week was a blast, even though I had cold feet about it.
  • Made a lot of cool friends, just check out my ‘be inspired’ list in the right hand column!
  • Created and started selling my first pattern and also my second pattern, crazy.
  • Can look back on some crazy kid moments as they are documented better here than most anywhere else.
  • Escaped mental breakdown.
Here’s to a fun filled 2011, let’s live it up!

    Hi Anna is your new friend Fab, I’m glad it was a good year for you. and Congratulations for your really famous gathered clutch, I have seen it in a lot of blog places. and your runaround pattern bag is awesome. Thanks to you I was able to give it a try. It was fast and easy to make. I really recommend your pattern. Thanks for all the inspirations through your tutorials.

    Hi Anna, you’ve surprised yourself, I think, with all that lovely creativity…love it. By the way what did you do for the spice up your kitchen challenge…I read about it but am not really game to go in it yet. Just wondering.

    Hi Anna…
    I have been following you for a long time now… I recently made a bag from your diaper pouch pattern… Loved that pattern… Its so easy and you have written the instructions so clear… Could you also make those patterns PDF??? Easier to print and keep for someone who does not have the sewing machine and the PC in the same room…
    Cheers from India…
