WordPress has just informed me that today is the first anniversary of this blog! To celebrate, I shall introduce you to my new blog, Sweet Wanderings. I will be moving to London for a year whenever I am granted a visa, most likely sometime in July-ish or August maybe, and I will be blogging my journey and experiences there! I may still post some crafty things over the next year, but probably not nearly as much because I will be busy seeing as much of London and Europe as I can while I’m there, and I can’t lug all my crafty stuff with me!

Looking back over the past year, I’ve written several posts on Smashbooks because I love them, and I’ve completed two of them. I started this Smashbook last fall and posted about the beginnings of it. Now I’ve been to a few more places, and it’s all filled up!

I love my Smashbooks! I bought a big red one to fill during the next year or so, since I figure I’ll need a lot of room with my adventures living in London. 🙂

SMASHbooks have a LOT of pages. I haven’t counted them, so A LOT is my estimate. I’ve finished my Smashbook of stuff from the 2012 year, which I actually didn’t start until May. I also decorated the cover, and it makes me totally happy.

Here’s a sampling of the pages.
