@krissie117, It’s neat that so many people returned to their craft or started their craft around July. I love the birthday :birthday: phrase. I need to steal it. :sweat_smile: Maybe the partial lunar eclipse on the full moon :full_moon: had something to do with it? I have no idea what power was around at that time.

@TheTravelWitch, I really enjoyed the challenge of finding one word or short phrases for each month. It looks like your year was up and down, just like ours. I can imagine what some of your months were since you are in Warsaw. :wink: Thank you for doing the challenge. :slight_smile:

Oh, the one about shipping & handling? Yeah, on my actual 21st birthday I was pregnant & had my son Parker. So I usually start it there & all of the other years since I became a mother are shipping & handling. Feel free to use it whenever you would like! I enjoyed that challenge. I had to put my thinking cap on trying to remember what happened or stuck out about the earlier months. Thank you for challenging my brain!

Hahaha it’s a turbulent city to in live in right now, unfortunately! Yes- pandemic aside, there’s a lot going on. Many people are fighting for a whole spectrum of causes and the protests are a constant topic in the news. I’ve got my fingers crossed there will be some important changes and improvements in the new year! :blush:

It was a pleasure- thanks so much for sharing your fun challenge! :heart_decoration:

Thank you, @Limeberry and @Francisco. I can’t take credit for the idea but I am glad you both enjoyed be bringing it to the coven. It has been a fun and unique way to review the year. Most importantly, it helps to reflect on such a crazy year and see not everything was doom and gloom. There were growth points, glimmers of joy and hope, rebirths, etc.

@berta, 95 years? That’s awesome. I hope to get that many.

It looks like you have had a decent 2020. I know we have all had struggles, challenges, and losses, but it is uplifting to see life was still giving joys, too. Thank you for doing this activity. :slight_smile:

@walter, I hope you still give it a try. There is no pressure to sugarcoat anything. If the year was rough, then it is the way it was. I would love to do this again next year and see how things can change in our lives.

I just have a hard time finding those emoji images. You all are so clever with them. I need to practice finding them.

I had trouble with the emoji part too. I tend to stick to the ones I know off hand. I know there are many more though.

I think a yearly tradition would be an excellent idea also!
