Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

"A Year In Review"

Edit to add: I have great news! One of my favorite crafty places, DRS Designs, has graciously offered up a second prize of a $15.00 voucher to their store! Yippee :) I know first hand they have some super stuff in the next release!  

Welcome
to the
A Year In Review Blog Hop! 

In keeping with the spirit of the season, this is the place to look back and highlight some of your favorite projects from the past year.  Please place your name in the Linky spot, (please link to the post, not your general blog) and remember to spread the love to your fellow bloggers who are participating. I even know of one person who is offering up some blog candy of her own, so you never know what you may see along the way :)  If you are just finding out about this now, have no fear.  You can add your name to the list anytime before the hop is over :)


I will be back on January 1st with my list of favorites and I will also announce the random winner of the $25.00 gift certificate to the crafty place of your choice. 

Happy New Year!
