Taking Stock: DIY’s of 2009

1.01.2010

Taking Stock: DIYs of 2009For most of you, the champagne’s probably already been uncorked, the toasts made, the celebrations well underway by now. I’m relaxing at home in front of the yearly impersonation challenge marathon on Japanese TV, munching on tangerines. And updating the old blog!

So here’s a look back at all the DIY tutorials I shared with everyone for the entire year. Well, gosh – when you look at them all like that they look like a huge amount. I really did a lot this year! (I actually made tons more things; these are only the documented-on-Blogger items.) And this was really only posting in earnest since April, since I had sort of forgotten about this blog since founding it in 2008.
