It has been one year since I first began my blog.
I made it to 58 posts and 55 followers.
Not bad, that almost makes 1 follower per post.

My first post was just an introduction
of myself but I also wrote things
I wanted to learn or do more of.

I looked back and saw that trying
more through the viewfinder photography
was on the list.
Check. I've done plenty of those.

And I wrote that I want to learn
how to do letterpress.
Well, I've signed up for a letterpress
class this summer at an art school.
Yay! I'll check that in a couple of months.
And I'll be able to show you guys what I make.

Now I just have to sign up for some piano lessons.
Oh and I want to take a calligraphy class
so I can improve.

So I have another lovely year to look
forward to with my sweet followers
and occasional visitors.
Thanks for sticking with me.
I'll treat you all to another giveaway this June
as my present to my blog.

Also happy memorial day!
I sense that it will be a good one.
I hear thunder rumbling in the distance
and I LOVE thunderstorms.
And I just found out I won a giveaway
Hurray for me :)

P.S. The sky just broke.
Good, the garden needed some rain.
I just snuck in some poppy flower seeds
between my mom's flowers
and am hoping they surprise me
by actually coming up.
Poppies, peonies, and ranunculus are my favorite.
