Best Of OHD 2011
Here is the last post looking back at 2011. It is sort of therapeutic looking back through everything. I had a realization earlier this year. I was sitting on the floor of my apartment late at night listening to the radio while I was making a pinata, and I was so happy. I know making pinatas isn’t fulfilling for everyone but I was so happy because I was making things. I feel so grateful I’ve found what I love to do. Thank you for all your support in 2011! I’m beyond excited for 2012. (You can see all the 2011 Year in Review posts right here.)

May marked the 5th year anniversary of my blog and a big redesign by Erin Jang and programmed by Mark Allen, two very talented people. Another new thing for me was this year I’ve experimented with having contributors. I’m so lucky to have such talented people to work with. Here are some of my favorites from April through June.

Last January I was getting ready to move to Paris. It’s a little funny to remember how scared I was (as someone who doesn’t get anxiety easily.) Here is the first part in a 2011 review of Oh Happy Day I’m posting this week.
