Happy New Year!

In many ways the year 2008 will not be remembered fondly, except that I started this blog and met so many wonderful crafters. From those talented papercrafters I learned fun and fantastic techniques, discovered beautiful and whimsical stamps, and expanded my imagination a-hundred-fold.

I welcome 2009 with optimism, by choice (if I listen to the gloom and doomers I get really depressed). I look forward to much more creativity and success with my art, as I look forward to meeting more artists and crafters. Let this be a renaissance year for handmade crafts, innovation and imagination. Success in sales would be a good thing, too!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Hi Barb - & Happy New Year to you as well, my friend. I am so far behind on my blog (answering to all the friends I've met) but I'm getting there.
Your collage of cards at the top of this post is gorgeous.
I look forward to blogging with you in 2009 - Happy Crafting!
