Seasons Givings Blog Hop + Giveaway




**This post will be pinned to the top of my blog until Saturday, January 7th, please scroll down for my other blog posts**
So thrilled to be part of Latisha’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop for the 5th year!  You should have arrived from Vera Yates’ blog!  I’m sure that Vera has some awesome eye candy for you!!!

If you didn’t pop over here from Vera’s, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Lawn Fawn blog!  In case you get lost along the way, the entire hop listing is at the end of my post.

This is a thank YOU for my readers, for stopping by and saying hello!  Thank YOU for inspiring me.

First up, I thought I’d do a run down of my favorite projects I posted for 2016:





Let’s be honest, definitely more than 50% of my blog projects are coffee themed….

I’ve had some awesome opportunities in 2016.  I’m so thankful for them because they help me grow as a designer. 

I’m SUPER thankful for the awesome Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Design Team.  What an awesome group of designersπŸ’š  There’s a wonderful community of Coffee Lovers in the Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB group.  The Paper Crafting community is filled with Magnificent people and I want to thank everyone that participates/sponsors the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops!

I thought I’d share my 2017 One Little Word:


I decided on Accomplish:
Accomplish for Q1: to organize and keep things organized in my craft room and spread it to the whole household.  I bought this for my Zigs (thanks for the inspiration Jess!) and THIS for my Copics.

I have some other plans/ideas brewing and I need to be diligent with the follow through…I always think that there aren’t enough hours in the day, but there are…no excuses. 
Whew!  You’ve made it down this far!  I’m doing a giveaway to express my thanks for the support during 2016!


You’ll receive all the products in the photo.  International Friends are welcome too!  Leave me a comment about what you want to work on in 2017.  Commenting will be open until Saturday, January 7th at 11:55 pm.  Are you a No-Reply Blogger?  Make sure you leave me an email address so that I can reach out to you or I will pick another winner.

Your next stop is Mary-Ann Maldonado!!!!

    Have a blessed 2017.
    Thanks for taking part.

  132. Thank you for the inspiration. What I want to accomplish will apply to many aspects in my life. I want to be fearless…in being who I am, in expressing my own personal sense of style and creativity, in bringing happiness to those around my by being genuinely happy myself and most of all in showing unconditional love to all I interact with.

  160. So fun to see your favs. I always enjoy seeing your projects in my feed, tho I don't get here near often enough to tell you so. My goal for this year is Watch Less/DO More. I have WAY too many projects bookmarked and spend way too much time looking at other people's work, so I'm hoping to cut down on surfing and hopping and actually DO some of the projects I've been wanting to get to.

  161. Thanks for your inspiration throughout the year. Your cards are truly amazing. For 2017, I'd like to try out some new techniques and craft tools, e.g. shaker cards and popup cards. πŸ™‚

    This year, I'd like to start paying better attention to my friends.
