Farewell 2010

It’s been a great year!

* This year my other half, Maksim, proposed to me and I said yes.  Now I got my self into planning a wedding, like I was not busy enough already.  Not complaining though :), he is a great guy.  Among his other wonderful qualities he support my yarn habits and encourages to buy more.  Did I tell you I have a storage room for my yarn?

* This year a beautiful baby girl, my soon-to-be god daughter, Arianna Alexandra Bell, made her appearance into this world.

* This year for the first time in seven years I huged my parents

*This year I became a cat owner.  As a side note: I never was a cat person, I did not even like cats, until Miley walked into my life.  She supervises my every crochet attempt, helps with ball winding (NOT), and get a lot of custom made toys.  Spoiled little thing

Professional/ crochet related

* This year I released my first patterns for sale.  There is my Ravelry pattern store.  I have 5 patterns available for now, and had several people buy them, which makes me very happy.  It also supports my expensive yarn habits and motivates me to create more.

* This year I had my first publication in a Crochet Magazine, in THE crochet magazine.

* This year I had 3 patterns published in Crochet Patter a Day calendar, and one of them won a second place.

* This year I started teaching crochet classes at a new venue, Bridgewater Commons mall in NJ and it’s been great!

I have high hopes and expectations of the 2011, let’s see how will it all play out.

Farewell 2010, Welcome 2011, Happy New Year!!!
