Happy Birthday - Running with Crafts Turns One

Running with Crafts turned 1 on May 6th. I had intentions several times to post on the big day but I have had a really busy week. I will have put in 77 hours at work this week if I get done after 8 hours tomorrow. I am also solo with Lydia in the evenings so by the time the end of the day rolled around this week I was ready to pass out. I also work at a computer all day so the last thing I sometimes feel like doing is getting on my home computer, especially on weeks like this one.

I want to do a give-away for this special event but it is going to be delayed because I have not created the item yet that I want to give away. It is a surprise so I won't say anymore about it.

I thought this would be a good time to reflect on the past year by listing ten cool things that happened in my life this year.

10. Learned how to make books
9. Learned how to quilt
8. Learned how to knit
7. Watched Lydia learn how to ride her bike without training wheels
6. Finally visited my life-long girl friend in Oregon (she has lived there for over a decade)
5. Completed the Madison Half Marathon
4. Completed the Walk Wisconsin Marathon
3. My husband turned 40 (gets better with age) and decided to go back to college (I'm proud of him)
2. We visited Disneyland for the first time
1. Completed the Portland Oregon Marathon

When I started this blog I was just getting back into running after being out of the sport for a couple of years. I also had a desire to make more time for crafting. I am happy to say that a year later I am still running and doing a lot of crafting.
