2011 Revisited

While everyone else out there in media-land is doing year end countdowns, recaps, reviews, and best-of lists, I thought I’d try that myself. So, what happened this year? I can’t remember off the top of my head, so it’s a good thing I’ve got Flickr to help jog my memory. I’ve gone through all my photos for the year and selected one or two of the most meaningful for each month (so, lots of pictures to follow). How was your year?

fall festival

 

Don’t forget, I’ll be making my debut at the Apple Castle Fall Festival this Saturday. It’s located in scenic New Wilmington, PA. Hours are 9 am to 5 pm. Come out and get some apples, cider, fall decorations, and MY YARN! It’s going to be a beautiful weekend; maybe your last chance to get outside and enjoy the fall sunshine. See you there!

And I’m excited to announce that GENF now accepts credit cards. Thanks to Rich’s fancy pants Android phone and Square , we now have the ability to swipe your card! Welcome to the 21st century.
