2013 A Year in Review (part 2)

Hi everyone,

It is now just one day to go until New Years Eve, did 2013 go as quickly for you as it did for me????? I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for 2014, I hope it is a good year for each and every one of you!

Yesterday I posted part 1 of my year in review of my blog posts for 2013. Here is part two, I was even harder to select my favorites from the second part of the year than it was from the first part. As you scroll down you will you notice Pop N Cuts seems to have become even more prominent during the last 6 months … this is only a very small portion of what I have actually made … I love them so much.

Here is the selection I came up with, if you click on the card it will take you over to the original blog post.

July 2013




August 2013




September 2013




October 2013





November 2013




December 2013






Well that’s it for me for my look back in what I did for 2013, thank you all for continuing to visit my blog.  Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2013 A Year in Review (part 1)

Well 2013 is almost over and what a year it has been. There has been some good parts and some bad parts, but thankfully I think it was mostly good .

It is always hard to select just one or two cards/projects for each month, especially when you post so many. This year I have approximately 413 blog posts for 2013, wow that sounds a lot when you look back like this.

This year being that it is so hard to select just one I am going to do this review in two parts, today and tomorrow and have decided to select 3 cards/projects per month.

Here is the selection I came up with, if you click on the card it will take you over to the original blog post.

January 2013



February 2013




March 2013




April 2013



May 2013




June 2013




Well that’s it for the first 6 months of 2013.

I will be back tomorrow with part 2 of my year in review, thanks for looking if you got this far.

Christmas Crackers


Hi everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day yesterday!

Each year for the past thirty odd years I have been creating my own Christmas crackers to use on Christmas Day. This year because I was pretty busy during the lead up to Christmas with some other stuff and that we needed crackers for 28 people this year …. I cheated! I purchased the crackers already made and then just added my decoration to them.


If I had of had less crackers to make I would have used a beautiful bow die I purchased a while back … but I need the crackers to be named and many of the things inside the crackers where intended for one particular person … so I decided to pull out this ornament stamp set from JustRite Stamps.
