Happy Domain Birthday to Hiya Luv!

Hiya is one year old today! I can't believe it has been a year already. In some ways it feels longer. Like she has always been her own place on the web. I have been blogging since October of 2009 but lately have kind of lost my spark because of my new found love with my job. I started my new job in October 2011 and have been head over heels since, thus letting the blog go...

Here are some buttons and blog headers from the past...
It's so funny to look back!

I miss it some. But really I am loving my new found creativity in the workplace. I will be back in due time friends and I do keep a journal full of ideas for the blog. In the mean time, I will celebrate that Hiya Luv the web domain is 1.

So much has happened this year. 2011.

I lost both my grandpas. {Sad. It is the very first and foremost thing on my mind at all times.}
I attended my first blogger conference in Phoenix, Arizona in April.
I wrote more blog posts this past year than in years past.
I joined the Clever Girls Network and love being part of such a vibrant and talented group of women.
I started #Setupshop and created a blog and online workshops to go with it.
My handmade shop was open for most of the year and I was pleased with the amount of sales received. I will reopen shop in the future.
I was asked to start a new blog with fellow bloggers Lauren of The Trunk and Chrissy of Hoot Designs called the Scatter Girls.
I started a new job at the University of Delaware which I adore.
So much to be happy about this past year. I am so blessed.
Thank you for following along on my journey friends!

Happy Birthday, luv! ;) I think it's awesome that your job is your love...that makes it a career. This from a business teacher. I've neglected my blog a bit too, but different paths mean different schedules. I miss my blog friends! Soon...soon. :)
