End of the Year Reflection

Hey Everyone! Happy New Year's Eve! I have been seeing a lot of posts about people's top ten moments of 2010, and I thought it was such a great idea that I wanted to play along! Albeit, I don't know if I have had at least ten moments, but I will share what the top five moments I do have and some of my favorite cards from 2010.

#5 Creating this blog in April of 2010 (when I wasn't even sure what to do. I had never blogged, my original layout was HIDEOUS and I stayed up till 3am fixing it!)

 #4 Diving in head-first to to get published first cards were wonder they's a couple that I submitted. One was for Embellish magazine's Button challenge and one for the October 2010 issue of Cards magazine

#3 Being asked to join the FABULOUS Etsy Inspired Challenge blog in June and staying on into the new year because I LOVE the ladies that I've met and how fun the challenges are! Then being asked to join the sweet and lovely design teams of Paper Therapy and Paper Vineyard

#2 Getting PUBLISHED for the first time in the November issue of  Cards magazine and then Paper Crafts magazine Now, I have had over 30 cards and projects picked up for publication!! I LOVE creating, being challenged and sharing my work!

Issues that I have been published in this year!

#1 And finally the most important thing of 2010 for me is having a heavenly father who has blessed me with a part-time teaching job so I can craft, and a wonderfully supportive hubby and family who ENCOURAGES me and CHEERS me on!

  And, as promised, here are my VERY favorite designs of 2010!

Without you dear readers this blog wouldn't
be possible
