with all the ups and downs that 2009 has landed on my plate,,, this past year was a tad bit bitter sweet,,, thank God for my blog,,, as i took a glimpse back at the year, that, sadly, i dont have the fondest memories of,,, its nice to know that, well, it really *wasnt that bad*,,,, but i am embracing twenty ten like nobodies business,,, im ready, willing and beyond eager,,,, i almost didnt do one of these types of posts,, wanted 2009 to gracefully pass,,, without looking back,,, but, i gotta admit, im glad i did. again, it wasnt that bad. i guess.
funny to think,, before 2009,. i never have the courage to try out for a design team. glad i went for it. being on a design team was and is so much fun. so much fun that we went ahead and started our very own,,, twice. some of the design team experiences were better then others, some came and went, and some i still remain on. i likes. its perfect just the way it is right now. im content.
looking back,,, my favorite blog moments of two thousand and nine,,,,, sorry, there are more than i had expected,,,,

I have enjoyed looking at your blog this year, and the Pink Ninjas. This was my first year blogging and it was sites like yours and the ninjas that made me start trying new things in my scrapping. I am finally finding 'my style.' Thanks for all the inspiration and I look forward to seeing more next year.
Happy New Year!!

Ally, I am so glad to have "met" you in 2009. You have inspired me in so many ways! I think playing along with the Ninjas what feels like "way back when" broke me out of the way I thought I should be scrapping and made it FUN. I take so many more creative risks with Ninja layouts than any others and that's GOOOOOOOOOOD. Thank you so much for your inspiration, your supah fun bloggity blog to read, and for being such an amazingly sweet and wonderful person! I feel so lucky every day to be a part of your DT!!! Have an AWESOME 2010!!!!! XOXO Heidi
