Turns out, 2012 was a pretty crafty year for me!
So, here we go:
January's highlight was Ann-Denise's Valentine Cone Class at Paper CrownFebruary was a very busy month:
I participated in several Valentine swaps: a tag swap, an ornament swap, a Valentine goodie swap - (here too!) , all of which I loved!
I took Jackie's Paper-Doll Class at the Paper Crown:
March, I hosted Sherry Goshon at my home so she could teach the Tulsa Dolling Dames how to create this beautiful cage doll. This is a photo of Sherry's doll. Mine is on my crafting table still waiting to be finished.
Doug had a work conference in Amelia Island, Florida and I got to tag along. :)
I finished my beginner's sewing class:
And had some friends over for Easter Crafting.
April was a whirlwind with a visit from my sister and Ray, I was teaching Medical Terminology at a college here in Tulsa, doing Hospice visits and getting ready for the two craft events of the month:
May was pretty much a crafty fail. I signed up for two on-line classes that I never finished. Yep. Oh well. I was busy with work stuff but I did manage to squeeze in some fun too.
I play Bunco once a month with a group of girls - in the picture below is my sweet friend Kathy:
June had me busy with Phoebe and her health issues.
But I got back to crafting creating some pin dolls for the Tulsa Dolling Dames to sell at the Quilt show.
And TWO fun Jackie classes at the Paper Crown! Fourth of July Canvas:
July was hot, hot, hot here in Oklahoma. The Hospice I work for was incredibly busy this summer and I worked many long days. Hospice can be emotionally exhausting. So to take care of myself, I spent my down-time crafting. I made my very first quilt!the Paper Crown and her Dress form class:
When August came around, I made another quilt top (that is still waiting to be quilted)
Karla's Faerie Page Swap: (click here to see the pages I received)
Michelle Geller) I had made pages for earlier in the summer. You'll want to check out this post to see all the amazing pages!

I was working on my pages for the Buried Secrets of the Dearly Departed Swap:
I was back over at the Paper Crown taking more classes:
Bobbie's Miss Pumpkin Queen:
Bobbie's Hoot! class
Handmade U - Fall Semester. I never ended up blogging about that event, the swaps, the projects or anything else. Shame on me...
October brought more swaps and another amazing Ann-Denise Event with all the swaps!
And Viv's witch hat swap (what I sent to Cindy and what Cindy sent to me)
And some snowmen I made:
Whew! are you still here? Finally, December!
I did a few ornament exchanges, participated in Jane's White Christmas Tag Swap, made a banner for my nephew, decorated around the house, and went to several Christmas parties.
For the Dolling Dames Christmas Party, I made this cute Snow Queen:
I can't remember if I got much accomplished around the house this year, but maybe in 2013. I hope you enjoyed this post and be sure to click on the links if you want the original blog post, or click on the pictures if you want a better look.
