Hey everyone! Hope that the holidays are treating you well. We are definitely enjoying our time off!
It's always fun to look back over the year and today I'm doing that creatively. It's been a really busy year for me, starting off with my trip to Colorado in January to shoot my Craftsy class that was released in March. What a lot of work, but what a lot of fun, you can read about it here.
Turns out this year I posted a lot less than in prior years. A lot of this has to do with all the work that went into the Craftsy class, but also because I spent a lot more time designing stamps/dies/stencils for Neat & Tangled, and cut back on my design teams. I'm hoping to be more productive in 2017, particularly on the scrapbooking side of the house.
Normally for these posts I pick my favorite project from each month, but I had a really hard time deciding for some months this year, so there are several with multiple picks. Go figure, make less stuff, like it more. You can click on the link above each photo to be taken to the original post. So here we go!
