New Years Eve Look back at 2012

Can you believe that its the last day of 2012. This year has flown by so fast. It had many ups and downs but what year doesnt.We found out our oldest daughter has a heart problem. Our youngest started kindergarten, we saved 2 more animals, we made it through the end of the world 12-21-12 and Christmas but hopeful 2013 is a great year. I have many things planned for the new year and cant wait to get them going. But today I just wanted to take a look back on 2012 with some family photos and some of my favorite craft projects that I made this year. I will have the orignal links to the post for each of the craft projects.
