Baking took up most of my time, especially during the last couple of months. I never ever imagined I would be asked to make a cake for someone outside my family, much more, get paid for it. Now I don't even have time to bake for them! I learned a lot of new techniques and honed my cake decorating skills a litte bit more.

Sadly, sewing had to take a back seat. I wish I had more time and more new ideas. I came out with only two new patterns for my Etsy shop. But definitely, sales were better than ever before. Thank you to those who bought eBooks from me. I hope you all were completely satisfied with your purchases. Keep on sewing!

I finished a few more sewing projects but the two I absolutely loved were my daughter's school laptop bag and my black mini messenger bag.
I sewed the mini messenger bag back in September and have been using it everyday since.
Overall, 2010 was a very good year. I am grateful and thankful for everything, despite the fact that I lost one of my brothers in May. I am aware that I am not getting any younger (and will in fact turn another year older in a few days) but I am more fulfilled now than in years past. I have a loving and supportive family. They are very happy with my little successes as I am with theirs. We are all healthy and materially blessed as well. I need not ask for more.
I know we all have things to thank for and lots to look forward to. May we all have a blessed 2011!
