Seasons Givings Blog Hop + Giveaway!


So thrilled to be part of Latisha’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop for the 8th year!  A big SHOUT OUT to Latisha for managing this event every year!  I appreciate your time + patience!  You should have arrived from Caly Person’s Blog!  I’m sure that Caly has some awesome eye candy for you!!!

If you didn’t pop over here from Caly’s, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Lawn Fawn blog!  

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 2019:

Jan 2019 | My Favorite Things | Best of Luck

I picked this project because I made it especially for my girl that accepted a full time position with the biotech company she had been contracting for.  She’s still there and loves working for them.

Feb 2019  |  Lawn Fawn  |   Really Really Great Birthday

The colors make me a happy crafter and it is an interactive design.  I love them but honestly don’t design them much because I’m a lazy crafter 🙂

Mar 2019  |  The Ton Stamps   |  Washi Tape Release

I love how this turned out, the washi tape is gorgeous and I love that sentiment.

April 2019  |   Reverse Confetti   |   Mom

I don’t dabble in florals often but LOVE how this turned out.    2019 was definitely my year with the softer color palette.

May 2019   |  Newton’s Nook Designs   |  New York

This was in celebration of my son’s graduation from FIT – NY.  His four years there were filled with accomplishments.  He’s currently working for Dior.

June 2019   |  Impress + A Muse   |  Merci

This is me.  Clean and simple with a pop of color.  It was the prelude to my Woodblock Wednesday feature which I hope to start back up in January.
July 2019   |   Reverse Confetti   |   Forever in our Hearts

July 9, 2019.  
The day that my best friend Sherry passed away.  I still miss her everyday.
Aug 2019   |  My Favorite Things   |   Comme des Garçons
My kids bought me a pair of the low top version of these but the brand Comme des Garçons will always make me think of my boy.

Sept 2019   |   Evelin T Designs   |  Trick or Treat

Evelin T Designs first official release and it’s so adorable!  I had a super fun time with the halloween images from their All Hallow’s Cuteness.

Sept 2019   |   Trinity Stamps   |  The Frappy Camper’s PERKing Spot 

So exciting to have a Coffee Loving Cardmakers collaboration stamp set with Trinity Stamps!

Nov 2019   |   |   Warm Winter Wishes

I love how the mix up of stamps and color palette turned out on this project!

Dec 2019   |   Lawn Fawn   |   Warm Wishes

I think you can tell how much fun I had with this card!

2019 was another awesome and bittersweet year for me.  My best friend Sherry passed away in July and our lives will never be the same.  There is an emptiness because of that and I try to do things differently because of the loss.  My heart goes out to her girl and her family.  

2019 was also awesome because I picked up two great design teams, and Evelin T Designs.

As a small token of my thanks, I’m doing TWO separate giveaways.  

THIS one is for my international friends.  I’m giving away a £20 Gift Card to Cleary Besotted Stamps.  Please add your
