New Year Thoughts and Wishes

Hello friends
New Year's Eve...already!   Felt like only minutes ago I was putting up the Christmas decorations.
(the tree being naked for a week!)
I have so many reasons to celebrate this New Year being on the brink of 
opening the studio/shop but I thought it would be nice over the next few days to do a 
craft/life recap of 2012.
Best put that kettle on...this looks like a longish blog post!
January 2012
My eldest son Mitchell, turned 18.
It was Spellbinders Blog Frenzy and I created a teapot frame.

February 2012
Very important month...I heard that I was to be on the Spellbinders Design Team for a second year!
I also went a little bit 'book crazy'....

All of these are created from Nestaboard using matching Grand Die Templates
I am running a class to create a Nestaboard book in January and I have a couple of spaces left
it will take place in the New Studio! The details are here or feel free to email me.

March 2012
I flew to Arizona for the Spellbinders Retreat - new flowery luggage.
Met Donna Salazar.
Stumbled upon making tags...!  Many many tags followed.

April 2012
I joined the Design Team of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and my very first project
was a Spring themed envelope gift bag.
And because chocolate is never far from my thoughts I designed
a new wrapping for Easter Eggs.
So that's the first third of 2012.  I will be posting the other months over the next few days.

A little shop update...the plaster is beginning to dry!
 Before plaster....
After plaster.... with a lot of condensation!
It is now time for me to wish you all, my dear friends, a wonderful, happy, healthy and 
most definitely creative New Year.

I heard this quote recently....
"Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book.  Write a good one. "  
Love, thanks and best wishes to you all.

Morning Christine
What a great idea to recap on the year, gives us all a lovely reminder of some of your projects too! I look forward to the next three instalments :-))
Looks like your studio is coming along nicely. I can see you're in a hurry for the plaster to're nearly there!

I would like to wish you a happy and healthy new year, and take this opportunity to thank you so much for your wonderful inspiration, ideas and FDD's you've given us on your blog.
I'm looking forward to seeing all your new projects and will make sure I have a 'must have' shopping list ready to add the new dies which you tempt us with!

Hello Christine. Happy New Year to you and everyone following your blog. Hope you have a good one. Looking forward to more classes and loads more crafting - spoilt at Christmas and got all the d-lites, thanks to c and c pick of the day, plus a couple of others. Can't wait to reclaim the dining room and start playing. Have to wait until at least Thursday though. Along with the resolution for more crafting, I have to lose weight before going to the States in March and more before my niece's wedding in August. Wish me luck. Ju
