Welcome to Year Four of the Season’s Giving Blog Hop! I’m happy to say this is my first time participating!
You should have arrived from Lee Ann Barrett’s blog.
This is a chance for me, and all the designers and companies listed below, to say * T H A N K * Y O U *! We are thankful and blessed to receive sweet comments, e-mails, and other messages. To show our gratitude, we are all listing a prize on our blogs, but be sure to read details carefully for giveaway rules. See end of this post for mine!
ABOUT ME: For new visitors, I’d love to tell you a bit more about myself! I started this hobby so that I could make cards and uplift other people, and I have sent out hundreds of cards to close friends and new crafty friends. Because this is such a supportive industry, I have received so many cards and developed meaningful friendships with a few crafters. It means a lot because we can share our joys over the craft and support one another in our creative endeavors. Cardmaking has definitely impacted my world. Professionally, I am a social worker and am starting two jobs this months so I’ll be busy, but I will continue to make time to create and share with my friends. I’d still love for you to subscribe and stay connected! As you’ll see below, I already express my gratitude over the year by giving away every month. 🙂

2. Joined Design Teams for The Ton, Butterfly Reflections Ink, Just Dandy Studio, and Coffee Loving Cardmakers

I do not have a YouTube channel and haven’t made videos–yet! That will be one of my goals eventually after I have adjusted to my work routine.
In 2015 alone, I’ve progressed with my style and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without everyone’s encouragement and support. I thank all my friends who took the time to visit my pages and leave me love. I thank all the craft people who have inspired me! Here are some of my favorite projects from the past year. I will link coordinating blog post below it if you want to see further details.
Again, thank you SO much for all you do!
