You know, it didn't look like this much during the year, but when I put it all in one post--whew!

I haven't set any concrete project goals for 2007 yet, other than a vague "I've got to finish some of these old WIPs!" There are also a few projects that I finished long ago that need their pictures taken.

I think I'll spend some time looking over my WIPs and prioritizing them. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually finish a few!

Happy New Year to you all! Wishing you a peaceful and productive 2007!
