Here are my Top 12 Highlights of 2012~
February: My favorite part of February 2012 was THIS CARD. It was such a PAIN in the butt to make, but it is still one of the cards I am most proud of! It didn't win any awards, it just taught me that I could do hard things and succeed! I was also awarded the Liebster award for the first time in February 2012--thanks, Katy!
March: Winning at Gingersnap Creations (challenge now closed) not once, not twice, but three times. This seriously helped me to realize that I could branch out into all sorts of different stamping and crafting styles. Even though this challenge is closed, the site is still up and available for you to read all the amazing articles about crafting!
April: Yeah. You KNEW this was coming. Bragging about all the FABULOUS deals I got at the consignment sale!!! That was the biggest highlight of April! Also, starting Technique Tuesday. ;)
May: Finally getting to enter a challenge at A Day For Daisies with this card and starting to use digis more in general. Even though my first card is NOT the best I've done, I feel so blessed to finally have been able to participate! Also, winning with this card as a Dynamic Dynamo at Dynamic Duos! That was a super duper fabulous surprise!
June: Creating this card for Fashionable Stamping Challenges and winning with it and a family visit from my sister, her fiance, my other sister, and her two girls! It was SO nice having family here in the middle of the summer!!!
July: Making my first easel card and joining the talented DT at Try Stampin' On Tuesday!!! That seems really quick, but those are my July highlights!!!
August: My sister's wedding to her daring husband and a "not so" highlight that turned into one--going back to work. It was a REALLY rough going back, but it has calmed down and I am so incredibly grateful for the amazing children I work with on a daily basis! Nothing terribly crafty related, but there you have it!
September: Being asked to participate in my FIRST EVER blog hop with the great DT at Great Impressions Stamps! It was SO fun to get to work with new stamps and meet some amazing people along the way!
October: Joining the amazing team at Digi Haven!!! Here's my first card for this fabulous digi challenge--these are some amazing people and I feel so blessed to work with them!
November: My 8th wedding anniversary to my amazingly kind and wonderful husband. I am so grateful to have him in my life--his support and love are the most important things in this world to me! Also, starting the search for my DT at Inkspirational!!! I do hope you'll join us in the coming New Year--we've got amazing prizes and DT work for you!!!
December: Last month of 2012 and the highlight was being asked to be on the DT at For Your Inspiration! You'll see my very first DT card for this team on Thursday, January 3, 2013!
And there you have it, friends! Thanks for taking the time to read this post! Like I stated above, none of my successes could have been possible without YOU--your support, comments, and love mean the world to me! Here's to a fabulous 2013! God bless and Happy New Year, friends! And, as always, happy stamping!!!
