I expanded my interested for fountain pens, inks and nibs.
My Bullet Journalling really came into it’s own. This system is so wonderful!
Shadow truly became a part of our family and we absolutely love him.
I read/bought some great books. Highlights were:
The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss
Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert
I was still painting my nails; and I finally swatched, photographed and catalogued ALL 340 of my nail varnishes!

way too much not enough money on stationery, but it was a creative year thanks to it!
WHAT A TRULY AWESOME YEAR!
