Looking Back at 2012

I wanted to start of 2013 with a quick look back at 2012. Looking back my first posts of 2012 were a bit similar  - lots of new plans, projects and excitement !!!

I think overall I can take a lot of positives from 2012. The things that I make have grown and improved I think. The number is markets that I do has increased but there is definitely room for improvement online with my website, Folksy, Facebook and Twitter (but plans there are for the next post)
