Year in Review - 2015!

Hi friends!

It's hard to believe in just a few more hours, it will be 2016!
Looking back at my card year in review,
it sure was slim pickins :/

Last year was definitely my least crafty blogging year.
While I did make more cards than I was able to share here,
the rush-around from each day left little time to
photograph/edit/blog them all!
One thing I cherish from last year's review is knowing that my cards posted
are not necessarily the ones I liked the best.
They are not my best card creations.
They are the cards that hugged my heart ♥
This review are the smiles and warm fuzzies 
from groups of friends that I've been crafting with for years!
It's the formulations of new card groups and brand new friends ...
It's playing with images from unheard of companies that were new to me,
it's the inking up of stamps that have been in my collection 
and never seen ink, up until now ....
it's all the wonderful things that bring us to this fabulous crafty world!













2015 has seen the closing up my huge craft Cabana
and moving all that I decided to keep to a tiny little corner,
crafting on an even tinier little wooden desk.
But when you love something, you find a way ♥
So from the tiny little space that I call my own, 
I can't imagine what 2016 but I'm sure excited to find out!
Thanks for stopping by and 
have a safe, blessed New Year!

Big hugs, Bigger blessings ♥

  7. I love your showcase. I am working to get moving on my blog again! Happy new years!

  8. I can see I've missed a lot! I love your cards and hope to see more. Seems we both have downsized our crafting space a bit this year. It's freeing, though it's hard to say goodbye to dies, stamps and other items I've loved! I've purged a lot this year and still have more to go through. I wish you a wonderful year ahead filled with love, laughs and lots of creativity!
