2012: a review in pictures

Well, it's that time of year again! Time to look back and reflect on 2012 and all the lovely things I did, places I visited, pictures I took, people I met, things I made, things that inspired me...

I won't bore you with lots of details, you'll be pleased to hear! Instead I've created a couple of mosaics of my favourite pictures from 2012. It's impossible to pick just a few!!

The first one is all about landscapes and natural beauty in the world around us. I was lucky enough to visit Brighton, Cornwall a couple of times, Devon, Jersey (where my folks live), Bath and Christchurch. I LOVE the sea, so this is a big influence, and all that fabulous S P A C E! We also found the most amazing, beautiful Japanese garden in St. Mawgan, Cornwall, in the spring, so this features heavily.

The second one is all about Blythes, beautiful handmade things and interiors. 2012 has been the year of Blythe - it all started on new year's day 2012 round at the lovely Candy Pop's and I've been hooked ever since. I've "met" so many lovely people online and in the flesh through this hobby and it's rekindled my love of crafting and making things. I also introduced my sister to the wonderful world of Blythe and she is totally hooked too and has been busy knitting away making wonderful creations for her Etsy shop....They are so much fun to style and photograph! I've also really enjoyed giving our home a bit of a vintage makeover and have collected so many lovely things over the year - and look forward to more of it in 2013!

2012 Faves Part 2

Instagram has been a huge part of my life in 2012 too, so I couldn't write this review without a mention. I've taken far too many pics to even pick out some favourites, so I've included a screenshot of my Instagram page below instead :) You can find me on Instagram as @zoepower

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who has followed along, looked at my pictures, commented, faved, and shared the journey :) I wish you all the most fabulous, inspired, creative and above all Happy 2013!
