Hooray! I’ve been here 365 days today. Special thanks to LumberJocks Bureaucrat and notottoman for reminding me with messages on my home page. I thought I had months to go and would have missed it!

My resolution (do we do that here? :) is to actually create more and get my shop a lot more organized. I’ve been making some headway on that recently, but there’s a lot left to do yet. As my next post will indicate, I’m still in the stage of building things to organize myself so I can have the room to start really building things :)

Also, thanks to the many great folks here who’ve helped me out this past year. I’ve learned so much. It seems like not a week goes by that I don’t look back at the previous week and think “That was before I knew the right way to do that!” Thanks again, to all of you, and here’s to another great year ahead!

Thanks, Sharon. Btw, when I came to the site to post that 15 minutes ago, you were featured on the front page. I grabbed a screenshot for you, just in case you haven’t seen yourself all famous on the front page.
