Seasons Givings Blog Hop



Happy New Year!


Thrilled to be a part of Latisha's Seasons Givings Blog Hop again!

You should have arrived here from Sharon's fabulous blog

If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of this wonderful hop which is the Lawn Fawn Blog!

It's a great way to let you know how much I appreciate you! 

Everybody that is participating in the hop has something to give away, now how fun is that?

Thanks to Kelly, I rushed over to HomeGoods/Marshall's/TJ Maxx after Christmas.  I didn't score like she did, but I did manage to pick up a couple 6x6 Christmas paper pads...excellent.  Here's one that I'm sharing with one of you, along with a spool of Martha twine, a glassine bag and a whole lotta wood veneer!


That's not all, I will also have 2 {Medium USPS Priority/Flat Rate} boxes  of goodies to sling out.  I'm doing a major crafting purge this week and this is my motivation to get it done! ← I got it done and they are chock full of goodness!!
{I organized my laundry room, which has crafty overflow...still much more organizing to do!}

Let's be honest, shall we?
In an attempt to make you actually read my post, I'm going to ask that you tell me in the comment field, what your 2014 crafting goal is or perhaps your 2014 word.
Please also add the US state you reside in or the Country, I will have a separate super fabulous prize for my international friends♡

My 2014 crafting goal is 
to be more technique driven

Commenting for my give-a-ways will be open until Saturday, January 4th @ 11:59 pm pacific.

Winners will be announced on my blog, Monday, January 6th.  Winners have until Sunday, January 12th @ 11:59 pm pacific to claim their prize.

  78. I live in Arizona. My word for 2014 is LIFE! Health issues over several years kept me from participating in life the way I had been. My Dad passed away this summer and it has been a struggle to deal with my grief. Losing my Dad has made me realize that "life is too short" is more than four words. It's a choice to take what you have and jump into life, enjoying every day because it will pass far too quickly.

    Thank you for sharing your projects. They are inspiring! Happy New Year!

  111. I am from a little town called Williamstown in Vermont USA! I have a few crafty goals this year. First is to spend at least 30 minutes a day creating and then doing a short write-up in my craft journal. Second, since we have no LSS in my area I am starting a craft group that will meet once a month. I have 10 confirmed and 25 more maybes at this time! I hope to be able to teach a new technique at each meeting. I am starting this using my own personal stash no supplies so winning this would be a great help!!

  131. I live in Northern Michigan, where we are experiencing really cold weather right now. It's 9 degrees as I write this. My goal this year is to send out more cards. I know that sounds funny, because we all have so many cards on hand from all the challenges we enter. But I want to send more out for "just because". I like that idea!

  147. Beautiful collection of projects! I had to add your blog to my Feedly feeds.

    My goal for 2014 is to just spend more time crafting. I got a new job this year that really forced me to cut back on the time spent in my craft room.

    Happy 2014!

  152. Iowa here! My goal is to get back to creating period. I had to take a break when I had to go back to school and it was too much with work, school, and I have found that I sit and look at all these blogs and love the creations more than getting back to my room and creating myself. My daughter is 8 years old now and I am ready to get back to it and include her in the fun..mommy-daughter bonding time. Have a great 2014! Thanks for the chance to win.

  158. Now that's my kind of giveaway! So fun! I really loved seeing a look back at your favorite projects of 2013 interspersed with your beautiful family shots. My crafty goal for 2014 is to be more consistent with filming videos for my YouTube channel. Trying to give back in that way, since it was YouTube videos that got me started in paper crafting to begin with. Wishing you a wonderful, productive, and happy 2014, Amy!

    My word for 2014 is balance. My crafting goal is to enjoy what I have ( a whole room of crafty supplies) instead of buying a bunch of new stuff. We'll see how that goes. ha!
    Happy 2014!

  161. Happy New Year Amy! Love your beautiful projects and family pictures! My crafting goal is to do something creative every week, which is hard with 2 kids of my own that run me all over the place! I'm also planning a new creative space with different location in my home to provide me with more organization and space to unclutter my mind and unleash the creative spirit inside. Wishing you all the best in 2014!

  162. Howdy, y'all! I'm from Texas where, as most people know, everything is bigger. Well, I have a large dedicated craft room but I still can't find what I am looking for half the time so my word and goal for 2014 is Organization! It's time to quit admiring other people's sublimely organized spaces and start doing something about my own.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Happy New Year! My crafting goal is to spend more time card making!

  164. I've definitely been seeing more techniques from you lately...and I'm loving it! You've gone bolder and maybe it's the new move or job...but it looks good on you!

    P/s: I'm slowing down in 2014 to focus on growing as an artist..play with my mediums etc...I spent most of 2013 chasing design team deadlines instead of really enjoying the process.

  165. Oh those wood veneers are so cute and they are the trendiest thing in 2013!

  166. Ok the WTF birthday card had me roflmaoo that was great!!! Ohio here..yes buried in snow! My 2014 goal is to find that happy middle, everyone wants me to make albums for sale..but I would never get out what I put in, no where even close..so I need to find that happy center. LOL right now I just give everything away. And I agree with you..more techniques. But I am in the middle of reorganizing and resetting up my craft room..does that count for anything LOL

    Have a great new year..I will be back often

  173. Hmmm, I have two crafting goals: finish what I start (including what is in my in-progress pile, otherwise it needs to get tossed/repurposed), and try more non-card projects. I didn't make it to Marshalls, and I tried another TJ Maxx when I was visiting my Mom two days ago ... they just had one 6x6 pad and it was $2 instead of $1.50. Don't they know I notice these inconsistencies?!? Haha.

    Love your round-up of 2013! Gorgeous work, Amy. As I was going through picking my favorite, it would get replaced by the next one over and over again. I ended up just getting confused : ) Anyway, hugs to you and Happy New Year, my friend!
