And now I'm back. I've waded through my emails, tidied up and reopened my Folksy shop, and caught up with the blogs I follow. I have so much planned for this year and I can't wait to get crafting again.
I thought I'd start 2013 by sharing with you some of my favourite craft blogs, sites and events that made last year such a great one.
