Lots of giveaways happening on my blog right now! I’ve got a stamp giveaway here and a $50 gift card giveaway to Simon Says Stamp here and here! 😉 Good luck!!
Happy New Year!! I am so excited to be participating in the Seasons Givings blog hop for the first time! The hop is in it’s 5th year and is the brainchild of the amazing Latisha Yoast! EVERY stop on this hop is a giveaway and there are A LOT of stops (over 70!)! 😉 We want to thank you, fabulous readers, for a wonderful year of crafty support and friendship! I am giving away the Concord & 9th Celebrations stamp and die set pictured below!
My giveaway is open worldwide and is open for one week! Please leave a comment on my blog letting me know if you have a New Year’s resolution and what it is (if you’re willing to share!) before 11:59 PM EST on Saturday, January 7th, 2017! The winner will be announced on January 8th.
Yesterday I posted a round-up of my favorite cards of 2016 with a separate giveaway that you can find here but I did want to share one more card with you! I don’t often make New Year’s cards (I’m usually a little wiped out after Christmas card madness) but I made this card back in September and thought I’d share it again to wish you all a very Happy 2017!
I have a few crafty resolutions for 2017 that I’ll share and one that I’ll keep to myself until December 31st, 2017! 😉 I hope to improve my handlettering, complete at least once video a month, and delve into bujo and decorative bujo! 🙂 And most importantly I’m determined to get more comfortable with shading using copics and colored pencils. Here’s to lots of crafty success in 2017 to all of us!
Below you’ll find the full hop list! Have fun hopping and if this is your first time stopping by my blog, I hope you’ll visit again! You can subscribe to my blog via the widget on the sidebar or find me on YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram! Have a great day and Happy New Year!!
My resolution is to slow down and just be in that moment.

Resolution to get more active.
Susan Gosman says
I am resolved to begin using watercoloring on my cards. I’ve been hesitant, but that’s the best resson to give it a go.
Rowena M. says
Such fun cards Jess!!!
My resolution is to be more forgiving and not to be in such a hurry for everything. Wish me luck!
Kim becker says

Maggie B says
Love your card, Jess. The colors are fun and I love the Bokeh look. I have a few do-able resolutions this year. One is to choose one day a month to make Christmas/Holiday cards so I’m not making myself crazy(er!) later in the year and another is to stop feeling guilty about taking the time to enjoy my craft room (& the new toys that Santa brought me last week!!). Now that my kids have “grown & flown” it’s okay for me to have some “me” time without feeling guilty, right? I hope your 2017 is your best year ever, filled with nothing but health, happiness and blessings. ~HUGS~
My resolution is to not make resolutions ? Love your cards.
Happy New Year! My resolution is to get organised!
Rikki Scott Morgan says
Happy New Year Jessica, thank you for all of your inspiration in 2016. Don’t really have a New Year resolution, just want to spread more kindness everyday.
Karen Letchworth says
Hi there, Jess.
I’m new to your blog and I have to say WOW – you have some really amazing art. I will most definitely be back! Well, my biggest resolution (very honestly) is to lay off the Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. It will be difficult, but I have to do it. I also need to get my ever-growing bottom back into the gym and get in shape. Hey, just being honest here.
I hope that you have an amazing 2017, and I will definitely be back to visit.
Thanks for taking part.
Happy new year 🙂
My resolution is to become more organized and lose weight.
Kirsty Vittetoe says
Thanks for a year of inspiration, looking forward for more of you beautiful work in 2017, happy new year!
I usually have a small list of things I want to do, includes more hiking, more picnic and visit a new national park each year!
Kathy ness says
This is my first time visiting and I love your work! I will be back to look and learn.
This year my resolution is to commit more consistent ant time to card making.
I am new to your blog and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work. Happy 2017. My crafty resolution is to do better planning to use more of my stash for the charity cards I make each month.I can’t wait to get started!
Celeste Goff says
Happy New Year Jess!!! Love your beautiful and shimmery bokeh card! My 2017 goal is to get a better lighting system for my blog. The one I have now is sub-standard.
Vikki H says
Your bokeh style card is so festive! I like your goals. Mine are to create a new craft room, make more cards and post more often.
Isabel Z says
Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn’t seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it’s important.
Love your bokeh New Years card and hope you have a great new year! My craft resolution is to use more stamps I already own!
Sherri C. says
Happy New Year! My goal this year is to make at least one Christmas card and tag every week!
Renee VanEpps says
Ooooh that’s a gorgeous card!!! Still love that Bokeh effect! My New Year’s resolution is to drop all the weight I gained in 2016!!!
wow!!! Stunning card! My goal, one of them being crafty wise, is to take the time to craft. It relaxes me, and I need to relax more. Happy new Year!
Lucinde | Lucilight says
I would love to make more crafty videos this year 🙂 Happy new year!
love your creations! I don’t really make resolutions. Just hope to be healthier, more active, more creative and more giving in 2017.
Kathy W says
