HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today’s blog hop is a reflection of the past year and a post of thanks to all our readers and followers. Thanks for joining us today!
First off, I want to start by wishing you all a wonderful holiday season. Christmas is over and I hope you had a blessed one! May the new year bring you much joy, love and success in everything that you do! I made this card for Scrapbook and Cards Today’s Winter Issue and thought now would be the perfect time to share it!
When I started card-making 5 years ago, I was in a little bubble – learning what I could from YouTube and never dreamed that I would build relationships along the way that would shape my hobby into what it is today. I don’t think we ever stop learning from each other and that’s the foundation of these crafty relationships. I’m ever so grateful for all the support I’ve been given and the encouragement from friends who help me sustain a positive attitude when the social media world tells me by numbers that I’m not good enough. Even the strongest fall victim of self-doubt and I’ve learned a lot this year, that those numbers mean nothing – except that some computer system is dictating who gets to see what I share and that talent can’t be measured by a computer.
I had the opportunity to design and guest for some amazing companies and just wanted to share my favorite 9 with you from the year!
I’m so thankful for you all and hope you know that this hobby, however big or small to you, is a positive part of our lives and I encourage you to MAKE and SHARE! Document your work and do it for YOU.
