2014 highlights

Today is time to highlight 2014 and plan for what is ahead in 2015. This year, I spent time learning to blog. I still have a lot to learn but it comes with a son that I pay to help with the blog, practice, networking and perhaps taking a blogging class. I have had a lot of fun using my stamping supplies and adding to my stash!! Note to self (join hoarders anonymous)!

Here come the top five highlights of 2014:

I entered the digi world ...felt out of my comfort zone but love the results. You can always teach an old dog new tricks!! A look at my favorites.

I became a CCC enthusiast . I mailed my card to Mauritius and received a card from Florida.
How much fun to get snail mail that has no bill enclosed! I also learned how to use a light box for picture taking.

I did my first blog hop(Coffee Lover's blog hop.) I commented on all the posts and admired all the creativity. Here is my card for the Coffee Lover's blog hop.

I entered the Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Challenge on my first blog post. My lesson here is listen to others!! My blogging buddy Becca at the Damsel of Distressed Cards encouraged me to do it and I won!

I entered the Archiver's Online Make, Share, Win contest. New word carpe dium. The card was featured in their email along with the other three winners!

In 2015 expect great things! My grandson will be born in January. This will be grandson #2.This is my first grandson named Reily.

My youngest son goes through driver's training(EEEEK!)
I will spend the year stamping and having a BLAST!


  1. I am so glad to have an aunt as creative and talented as you. I know you think you "bug" me when you call me three (nope 10!) times a week, but it really makes my day. I feel honored to have someone as humorous, quirky, and downright fun as you for my favorite crafting buddy. 2015 is your year to shine!
