Happy New Year’s Eve! Last year I was thinking that 2021 had to be a better year…it’s been better in some ways but worse in others…I am REALLY hoping that 2022 might finally be a good fresh start for SO many things!
I’ll be back to share my first card of 2022 soon; but first, I wanted to look back and share my favorite cards of 2021! Card-making, and crafting in general, has been a source of great joy for me this year but, if I’m being honest, also a source of stress and anxiety. I’m really trying to prioritize myself more and as a result haven’t crafted as much as I have in years past. However I find that with that change I’m enjoying it more and I hope that continues in 2022! You’ll also notice that I skipped two months and chose an extra card for March and September instead! I decided it was okay to be a little picky, ha!
I am incredibly thankful for the opportunities I’ve had this year to work with and guest for some of my very favorite companies and you’ll find most of them represented below! I look forward to sharing more with you in 2022 and I’d love to know if there’s something you’d like to see from me next year!

I’ve been sharing these annual round-ups for several years now and I really enjoy looking back to see how my style and design has evolved over the years!
It definitely seems like I’m getting a little bolder and brighter as the years go on! I look forward to seeing what 2022 will bring!
Anyway, in case you’re looking to close out 2021 with a little crafty shopping I wanted to make sure you knew about this fabulous sale going on over at Honey Bee Stamps in honor of the founder, Melissa Hewitt’s, birthday! You’ll automatically save 25% off your entire purchase site-wide! It’s their biggest sale of the year and good for only one day so shop early for the best selection! Also, don’t forget that Honey Bee Stamps also carries some fantastic crafting supplies like my favorite Tonic glitter cardstocks and embellishments, distress inks and oxides, adhesives, cardstock, envelopes, and more! And as always thank you so much for choosing to shop through my affiliate links! It means so much to me! Happy shopping!
And finally, looking forward to 2022, I have a few continuing crafty resolutions and new adventures to be excited about!! First off, I’m excited to continue growing my Patreon page as I really enjoy getting to know my fabulous patrons and I’d love to have you join me over there! Second I think it’s finally time for me to take a bit of a leap and start putting my art out there for sale…I know I’ve been promising it for years but things are finally falling into place for me to make that happen! And lastly I’ve made great leaps and bounds in my health and fitness during 2021 and I want to continue that in 2022!
Here’s to making it work and lots of crafty and personal success in 2022 for all of us! Happy New Year!!
