My Parties: Year in Review!

I really can't believe that the year is already coming to an end! I really felt like I rushed throughout the whole year. Which is kind of sad because I feel like I didn't stop and smell the roses, I just ran by them. Bummer. Although, when I stop and think about it, I did have some great moments and I definitely had some fun planning parties. There was also exciting changes, like dabbling in the "party planner" pool and I have to admit, it's not as easy as I thought. Nothing ever is, right? Well I definitely learned a lot about the party world and myself. So this new year I will most certainly be applying my new found knowledge to my party planning venture.
Another exciting change was the opening of my Etsy shop! This was later into the year but I am really excited about this and digging deeper into my creativity.
I saw quite a few party girls doing their "year in review" and I soooo wanted to jump on the band wagon ;) So here it goes..... the parties I put together this year! I'm really happy with the party journey I took. I hope you are as well!

So that was my year in parties. Not to bad, huh? Thank you all for your support this year! It truly has meant so much to me and I'm so grateful. I hope you stay with me in 2012 and continue to follow my party adventures :) Like my header says, I'm just trying to get through life, one party at a time.
Happy new year everyone! :)

Fabulous work Jeanette! They are all precious, but I am partial to your bookworm party. Mostly because I would have loved that as a little girl! ;)
