The Wonderful Journey We Share

Hello everyone from a wonderfully calm, if a little damp Shetland. A very warm welcome to you all but particularly new followers who have joined in the last couple of weeks - I really appreciate your support on my creative journey.  I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas week and is now looking forward to the New Year and whatever it will bring.

Many bloggers at this time of the year showcase favourite pieces from the year and Jennie at the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog has challenged us to show our single favourite piece.  

It was difficult to pin it down to a single piece, but I decided on this hanging as even on the darkest day of winter it makes me feel so bright and cheery!

Click the link HERE for the original post if you want to check out the techniques I used.

I have to say that 2013 was my most exciting crafting year yet!  I met so many wonderful people, learnt so many amazing techniques and have worked with fabulous and creative people on design teams (something I never thought I would have the opportunity to do). 

Thank you all for your wonderful support by visiting, commenting and encouraging me and by providing so much inspiration in your own projects.  What a wonderful journey we share!

May you all have a healthy, peaceful and creative 2014.
