2013…the year that was...

warning…this is a self indulgent post. A look back for me of some of the highlights of 2013. Some fun, some sad, some unforgettable. I am not normally one for looking back, as its all in the past, I am an onward and upward kinda gal, but sifting through the thousands of photos these brought back memories of smiles, tears, magic and life itself.



















































































I'm just missing one photo of me with my bezzies all dressed up and merry at my birthday. If you've got it can you send me a copy please, lol.

Heres to a fabulous 2014

I salute you one and all

Enjoy xx

loving the knitted ginger beard, the rose in posh cups, the tattoo and tim on face goo, and especially that you're a 63 baby (only the best). Most of all loving you and your life. (you're definitely living the life imagined) xx Happy 2014

Happy New Year to you too! Great pictures from a very busy 2013. It was great fun (and hard work) to meet you at Ranger U and later on in the Netherlands. Planning to return to Holland in 2014? I sure hope so! Pssss bring Mario and Tim

Dyan, your year looks like it was fabulous! Here's to an even better 2014! I'm glad to have caught a tiny chunk of it (the super late girl at absolutely everything, massachusetts)...meanwhile, I was pouting about hearing about your AMAZING new hats, ladies, bubbles, flowers, and arrows from the stupid internet instead of here (samples please?!) Since you mentioned it at your class, I've been checking for your new goodies religiously! My wallet hates you, but I love you and can't wait to get my grubby paws on all of it!!! Happy new year to you and yours!!!

lauren mullin said...

OMFG! I just saw the blurb about Dina and her new stuff! I am quite literally having palpitations I am so damn excited right now!!!!! I want to hear all of this from you though, you must be over the moon!!!

Dawn B. said...

Happy New Year! Loooove the recap, fabulous! Looking forward to all the new lovely designs!!!

Emma Squared Designs said...

Hi Dyan, that for sharing your year in pictures! It's true that a picture is worth a thousand words! I wanted to ask you about the second to last picture where you were sitting between the cowboy (sherrif, maybe) and the indian. I think I know where that is! Did you go to a scrapbook store in Scottsdale, AZ called The Frenzy Stamper? If I am right about the cowboy and indian stautes, then I think you may have gone there! I go to that scrapbook store on occasion and that is usually where I buy your products! What a small world! I really enjoy your paper crafting products!
