2017 Season's Givings Blog Hop

**Thank you for all your kind comments, and I enjoyed reading about your resolutions for 2018!
My winner, per Random.org is Lagene!**



2017 has been a fun, crafty year where I got to experiment with many products and supplies.
Creating cards is my sanity outlet, and I absolutely adore sharing projects with you. I love reading your comments, taking your suggestions into consideration to make me a better card maker, and just celebrating with all of your success! The above image is my Best Nine from Instagram (follow me here-I'd love to follow you back!) I had so much fun creating all of these cards!

I love creating with flowers, so I thought it fitting to give away a brand new, super awesome (in both looks and smell- I love the smell of new photopolymer!) stamp set from Brutus Monroe called Botanical Banners. This would be gorgeous when stamped and colored with Zigs, Watercolors, Colorburts, etc.!


To win this giveaway, I'd love to hear about your 2018 Crafty Goals. My goal this year is to create a full length card making video tutorials. I did make a few videos, which was my goal in 2017, but I have quite a bit to learn. If you'd like to comment on
 what kind of videos you'd like to see from me, that would be awesome too!

Please leave your comment by Saturday, January 6th.
Unfortunately, I am a single mama on a limited budget, so this giveaway is open to US residents only due to the cost of international shipping. Please leave your email in your comment so that I can contact you if you've won!

If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Julee Tilman's blog.
The next stop on the hop is Lee Murphy!

  130. Hi Karen! Happy New Year! I hope to use new product that has been sitting in my craft room for quite a while! LOL. And to blog more this year. I did not blog hardly at all last year and that’s sad because I love sharing tips and tricks to card making and my DIY crafty journeys. I was working while my coworkers played on their phones and then I started job shopping and got bogged down with those responsibilities with no time to edit videos, etc. I believe that knowing the tips and tricks is half the battle of doing anything and everything. Art is for fun and everyone should enjoy it. I use iPad and iMovie for my videos. I have learned that it’s better to delete the audio, so I can clip out sections of the video to make it shorter and more relevant to the craft of the moment, then do a voice over where I can be direct and more casual it eliminates the heat of the moment when things go wrong or you have to step away from the camera for another product, etc. I know you will do well. Thanks, Paulette Still

  140. Love that gorgeous stamp! My 2018 goal is to have extra cards made & ready to go so I'm not scrambling to make one at the last minute. Maybe make multiples when I have time or should I say make time to make multiples!
