is one year old today!!!
What a fun year this has been!
My first original post on this blog (meaning I didn’t use a post from my family blog and paste it in here or backdate a post) was on January 28, 2010.
I had been posting more and more crafts on my family blog, and wanted to move them to a place where my friends and family weren’t forced to read them if they didn’t want to! I also wanted to see if I could get more exposure to my shop to aid in our finances.
Sabra had just started her blog and it really got me thinking how much I enjoyed creating things and sharing them with others. So, “A Lemon Squeezy Home” was born. My shop, started in 2008, is called Lemon Squeezy Shop so that is why my blog has the name it does :).
shop design by my friend LoriThroughout this last year I have learned a lot about myself. I’ve had many ups and downs concerning this blog and have definitely lost sight at times of what is really important in this life. Sewing and crafting are fun to me but I realize they are not life. They are just a part of my life that I happen to enjoy and love doing. There were (and probably still are) times I let them take over. One of the things I try and remember to tell myself is to not regret missing out on my family because of this blog. I have not been perfect, but I am getting better at organizing and prioritizing.
I have so enjoyed getting to know my readers, along with fellow bloggers. I have appreciated so many women and their examples and advice through their posts or emails. It has been really awesome to correspond with some of my favorite bloggers out there!
To thank you all for being so great this last year with your support, I decided to take these items you see below out of my shop and offer them as a free download to you. I do have some plans for my shop that I am excited about and will post updates next week.

I realize it isn’t Christmas, but I really did love these Christmas Cards (and they match the free Thank You Download here):
So thank you for a great year. Thanks for reading, commenting, or just browsing when you have a minute every now and then!
