Happy New Year , Thank You and 2009 Review

Wow is it me or has 2009 flown by, it only seems not that long ago we were all celebrating the millenium, can't believe that it really is a decade ago. 

I want to thank everyone for your support and kindness throughout 2009, I have made some of the most wonderful friends through blogging, friendships to truly treasure, and I have been so lucky to have met some of you in person, hopefully I will be able to meet more of you in 2010.  I know I have been one of the worst bloggers for a few months now and one of my new year resolutions will be to try and keep up with blog hopping, I really do feel bad when people take the time to visit and comment on my blog and that I can't seem to keep up with it myself.



Well 2009 has been like a high speed train for me in the crafting world, I started getting hooked on stamping and digi-images and haven't looked back since.  I landed my very first DT slot with Funky Fairys, and though no longer with FF, I will always remember FF for being my first DT and ever so grateful for getting me on the DT ladder.  Next I found myself on the Stamptacular DT, oh what fun it was and I was sad to leave after my 6 month term, though I had the opportunity to continue on the team I had to make the difficult decision to stand down to allow for other things.  I was also lucky to have been both a guest designer and official designer for Making Handmade Cards.  I throughly enjoyed my time as a guest designer for two challenges with the Sketch and Stash team.  And here I am now about to start 2010 as a DT for Pollycrafts, Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenges, Doodle Palace and remaining as a GD for Making Handmade cards, I consider myself very lucky to be on all these teams and to be working with such wonderful people.

Now I have spent a few days going through cards I have made through out this year to pick out a few of my favourites to show you, boy what a hard task.  But here are some of my favourites for you...

I hope you have enjoyed the peek at some of my favourites from 2009, so all there is left for me to say now is.....


To each and everyone of you.

Love and Hugs

Hi Joanne.

Always such a pleasure to pop by and see your beautiful makes, every time getting better and netter, sorry but i would not be able to choose a winner, as each one is a favourite.
Your friend ship has been one of i will never forget, how we got to know each other and how our friendship has blossomed, your a true flower that just blossoms more each and every day, and been so pleased to be part of, you have stood by me through thick and thin, and i know 2010 will be better than 2009, (if thats possible. lol ).
Enjoy your new year, all of you.
Hugs Angel
