What a year it has been, it's a year in which I've been blessed with many creative opportunities, and also experienced some difficult personal losses. My Dad passed away at the beginning of the year, and throughout the year it's been a struggle to find a balance between personal, professional, and creative life.
I learned to cut back and say no to opportunities this year, leaving the Jane's Doodles team and decreasing some of my workload for Neat & Tangled, while at the same time increasing some of that workload in other behind the scenes areas.
As the new year starts, I'm also saying goodbye to My Favorite Things. It's been such a pleasure to work for such a generous and caring company. A huge thanks to Kim, Jody, and number one Cheer-and Ring-leader Susan. MFT is making some big changes in terms of the creative teams. The Challenge & Inspiration team won't be back next year, but there will still be challenges hosted on the main blog. You can get the official skinny on all the changes here.
In 2016 I will be continuing to grow and pick up some additional duties for Neat & Tangled, and I'm still actively designing stamps and dies for them as well.
There are some other very exciting opportunities that are taking up a lot of my free time in the near term, so the blog might be a little sparse in January, but no worries, it's all good stuff.
Besides that I'm really hoping to get back to my first love (scrapbooking) a bit more in the new year. I've got lots of stories and memories to capture both for my kids and myself.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by throughout the year. Here's a little year in review for you:
Thanks again for all your visits and comments. It really means a lot to me. See you in the New Year!
