As we wrap up 2012, I offer you a huge THANK YOU! The fact that you log-in each day to read all the words I write (except for that one day when you were lazy and just looked at the pictures) makes me the happiest guy in the world. I have really had a great time with Stampin’ Up! and with my blog this year, and you have been so kind to consistently show your appreciation. What would I have done differently? This sounds trite, but – absolutely nothing. I hope to get to know you better in 2013 and to find more readers and to take on more projects, but I’m so happy where I am right now.
Today I want to take you on a walk down Memory Lane – wouldn’t it be great to live on a street by that name? Incidentally, it would NOT be great to live on Elm Street. Easy Street would be nice. Oooh! Rocky Road would be absolutely delicious! Where did I just go? Anyway, before I wax poetic about 2012, I want to fill you in on some great things that JUST happened:
- In case you missed it, I was just named a Guest Designer for The Paper Players. For the first 6 months of 2013, I will (along with a panel of other card makers) design weekly inspirations for the card challenges over at the Paper Players. On Sundays, they host color challenges, theme challenges and layout challenges. You can check out the announcement (along with a mug of yours truly) by clicking here.
- On Saturday (just before the Meet the Guest Designers post, my submission to the Snowflake Theme Challenge was selected as A Cut Above by Helen Heil. What an honor to be recognized. I am still thrilled. You can see the announcement here.
OK, so now, the retrospective of 2012. Here are some of favorite moments.
Above all other things, I love to take an object or shape and turn it into something it was not intended to be. When I am successful at using a stamp in a way it was not intended, I am happiest. Here are some of my favorites from this year. You can click on the image to see the original post. Enjoy!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today – and thank you for making 2012 such a great year for me. You are wonderful!
