Celebrating 2009 – A Year in Review

At the end of the year, I like to spend some time reflecting on what I learned and accomplished. First, I start making a list of all the things big and small that I’m celebrating. Then, I journal about what my big learnings were. I also enjoy doing something artsy and visual to commemorate the year, like the exploding box I made for 2008. For other creative ideas, check out my latest Musepreneur column on the wishstudio.

What I’m celebrating from 2009:


Personal Growth

Wealth & Abundance

  • Created a new illustrated worksheet, Your Life in Bloom.
  • Continued to make more passive income selling products.
  • Worked with a bookkeeper to help with monthly reconciliations and Quickbooks stuff.
  • Bought an original art piece from Leah at Blue Tree Art Gallery.

Health & Wellbeing


Physical Environment

  • Had housecleaner come regularly.
  • Organized my Unfolding Your Life Vision kit inventory in the garage and Brian cleared out a lot of the clutter in the garage, too. Yay!
  • Organized my craft area.
  • Got cracks in our stucco fixed so we won’t have any more leaks in the living room when it rains.
  • Finally put a new latch on our kitchen closet to keep Emmett out of the trash (well, actually Brian did this when I was at my wits end cleaning trash from the floor, thanks honey!). Also created a new system for our recycling because when Emmett couldn’t get into the trash can, he went for the recycling bin!

Fun & Recreation

  • Visited with friends in NY, Boston, and D.C. and had friends visit with me.
  • Met some new cool people online and in person.
  • Took a roadtrip with Leah, Melba, and Mindy to check out the Squam Art Fair.
  • Completed my year-long creative project, Kiss the Paper, with Kate and Molly.
  • Participated in Wreck This Journal and did my first vlogs.
  • Discovered new favorite art supplies.
  • Cuddled with my dog.

What are you celebrating from 2009? What acknowledgment will you give yourself?

Here’s to a rockin’ 2010! I’ve still got some year-in-review reflection to wrap up and then when I’m done, I’m excited to dive into Goddess Leonie’s delicious and dreamy 2010 Goddess Planner. These gorgeous and colorful pages are making me super excited about setting my intentions for the new year.
