happy anniversary

one year ago I decided I was going to start a blog.
i wanted the blog to be a space where I could post anything "creative".
this blog would keep me honest and give me a place to turn in my creative work each week.
What a difference a year makes.
In the last year I have taken up photography wholeheartedly. I'm technically challenged at times however I'm improving everyday.
During the course of the year I discovered the subject I loved to photograph most is...wait for it....Plants!? What?!
Still seems funny to me that I would enjoy taking pictures of plants (who am I?).
but I do. and the pictures I take aren't half bad.
A year ago
I had no name, no logo, smallroots was just an idea.
Now smallroots is a website, a blog, a flickr account and is a seller on Etsy! (sorry no tweets)
I published my first calendar and had 20 orders in one month (not bad for a little idea I had last year).
I'm happy.
I'm happy with the progress I have made over the last year. Most happy about the work I have put into my "creative" space and of all the images I have to show for it (many you haven't seen!)
Last year I made a promise to start this blog - this blog which symbolized so much more.
And the only one holding me accountable was me.

(yay! me)
Happy Anniversary to me.
