Hello my lovely bloging friends,
It's New Year's Eve and time to reflect on the year that we're about to leave behind. What a year it's been! I don't think any of us could have anticipated what this year would have in store for us all. I won't dwell on it for too long as I know that it's one that we'll not be too sorry to say goodbye to. The hardest part of the year for me was losing my wonderful Sister-In-Law. It came as such a shock to us all and then not even being able to attend her funeral due to the Corona restrictions just made it all even harder to accept. There's not a day goes by where I don't think about her and my heart breaks for my brother, their two daughters and for their children who've lost their much loved Nanna. I will always hug my loved ones that much tighter from now on as we never know what life has in store for us.
The one thing that has kept me sane throughout this crazy year has been my crafting. I'm so enjoying being a part of the lovely Design Team at Crafty Individuals and an added bonus is that two of my best blogging buddies, Sally from Crafty Salutaions and Lynne from Creative Lynks have also joined the team. I was also given the opportunity this year to design some scenic stamps. I really enjoyed the process and people seemed to love the stamps, which was great I just need to get my thinking cap on again for a few more designs. Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals are such lovely people and I wish them both continued success with the business.
Talking of my crafty friends, there are a group of us which includes Viv from Viv's Visuals and Joan from Night Time Stamping, Sally and Lynne and we chat to each other most days. There's always one of us on hand if we need any crafting advice or just a shoulder to cry on. More importantly, we have lots and lots of laughs....that's usually down to Viv who has a wicked sense of humour. I feel incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful group of friends and if any of you are reading this, I love you all to bits xx
Finally onto my wonderful and loyal followers, I wouldn't be here without you, so thank you Blogland is so much quieter than it used to be as Facebook and Instgram have taken over but blogging isn't just about pressing the 'Like' button, it's a place where you can get to know each other just that little bit better. I love it whenever anyone leaves a comment and I love to visit other people too to see what they've been up to. It's also great to be in touch with so many like minded people as we all know that 'look' that we get from family when you start to talk about cards and they roll their eyes:)
Well it wasn't going to be such a long post but I've waffled on as usual, so I'll share some cards with you now before I go. Here are my favourites from each month of the year:
May I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best of everything in 2021. I wish you peace and happiness and may you love and be loved always.
