The Stamps I Use

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year crafty peeps! I don't have a card to post right now to welcome the new year but I just wanted to stop in and wish you all a very happy, healthy and creative new year.

Thinking back on the last year, I know I did NOT accomplish some of my crafting goals
  • use up more of my paper stash instead of adding to it. I REALLY added to it!
  • use all of my stamps (sets) at least once.....ummmm. Again, I bought lots more stamps and some of THEM haven't been used yet.
However, there were some highlights:
  • I got to play along with the design team at PaperWorksCo for the last half of the year and it was a total blast. Thanks Peggy for putting your baby into the hands of at least one newbie (me). I hope we did okay and did not cause you too much anxiety.
  • I took a chance at being creative and submitted my idea for a "sprout" to TGF and was actually selected for one of the ideas on which to vote. And considering it took me longer to scan the drawing than it did to draw it (on the last day for submissions), I was pretty tickled.
  • I met some really nice folks both online and in real life, thanks to this hobby, and have made this discovery: card-making/paper-crafting is a pass time that gives two-fold: to the creator and to the recipient of the creation.

and, to round up the year, I came across this awesome quote from Wil Wheaton (yes, Wesley Crusher for STNG) which I absolutely love as I have heard this too many times to count:

The single most insulting thing you can tell a creative person is, upon viewing their creation, "you have too much free time.



 So....turn your back on those that say that sort of thing and keep it crafty in 2010! I'll be looking forward to seeing your creations in the new year!
