Woo hoo, there was no snow in Northern Cal but it was Christmas card making flurries for me this year with 14 different card designs sent to family and friends. Yes, I was like a kid in a candy store, bedazzled by new stamps, inks and shiny pearls. I enjoyed card making with a Stampin Up Group (thanks Brenda!) where I learned to emboss patterns and mask stamps. I appreciated meeting new people and having the fun of creating these cards. Afterwards, I took advantage of the January Sale-a-bration promotion over at Stampin Up, http://www.stampinup.com to fill my craft cupboard with awesome new images and colors. I can’t wait to post the fresh ideas this New Year.
Deja vous, writing this post brought to mind that last year my crafty friends from Hopkinton also upped my game a notch. Here’s a shout out to Susan B, Pat, Sharon, Danette and Susan M, I miss you ladies. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas creating beauty and joy as usual.
Blessings and a be-lated Merry Christmas
PS. I didn’t post last year because my blog wasn’t good enough to be on the web forever. As you know I started this blog as a journal and encouragement for some friends. Who knew that in 2017 my site traffic would pick up so I stopped blogging to consider what’s next. I’m excited to start posting again and my resolution for this year is to post a better story each time to be web- worthy.
