While we took a step into year 2017, I am sure most of you have already made a list of your new year resolution. Everyone wants to try and do something different each year, or live life to the fullest with hope that, that one list of #lifegoals will be able to give you a good a head start.
New Year Eve's can be a pretty roller coaster experience: some people chose to be with their loved ones, some alone. Some partied young and free with their friends, some reminisced moments of the last couple of months before countdown just like it was yesterday. Memorable moments, most of us just want to cherish those memories as much as we can.
As for us at The Artsy Craftsy, we had quite an interesting end year juggling with workshops, art jamming sessions and Christmas preparations. Since everyone was doing the whole '2016BestNine' #2016bestnine Instagram thing, I figured, why not do the blog version instead. I am more than happy to share with you our best moments in 2016!
Let's take a quick step back into Year 2016!
1. Turned Blog into a Business!

2017 will be even better as I aim for more opportunities and publicity. However, part of my personal new year resolution would be to try and travel more, less on the phone (that means social media too!) and make more art. Not to forget I have a big wedding to prepare too! That's right, I am tying the knot this year.
What have you got planned for your new year? I am sure you are just as excited as I am.
