Looking Back to January 2011

Towards the end of each month in 2011, I revisited some articles I'd written in 2009 and 2010. Not only did that mean new readers of the blog might find something useful otherwise buried in the archives, but it also reminded me of content I could refer to when I wrote new articles.

And here it is 2012! In each month of this year, I plan to look back to posts I've written in 2011. Don't forget, you can always use the right sidebar to find earlier posts. Click Creating, Learning, Reviews, Reading, Writing and Celebrating to explore those themes, or try the Blog Archive to sort by months.

  2. I remember these ones! Especially the fairy tale party one ;)
