Season's Givings Blog Hop

Hello everyone, Happy New Year! I am participating in the Season's Giving Blog Hop this year as a way to say thank you to my readers, new and old. I appreciate you taking time to look at my projects and comment on them – it's wonderful to be a part of the paper crafting community. Every single participant in this Hop is giving away prizes. Look at that huge list down there! I am giving away these new die sets and I'll put in other assorted goodies to go with them:

My give away will be open for one week and on Friday, January 9th I will choose a random winner from the comments on this post and announce it here. The winner will receive these dies and other fun stuff. Make sure I can get a hold of your contact information! So, for your chance to win, please follow my blog and leave a comment. =)

I want to share my latest project with you, the full tutorial for this Winter Fairy Luminary can be found on the Inspiration Journal blog now. 

A few of my other favorite projects from the year are:
Woodlands Accordion Candle Screen
Vintage Fun game & toy themed configurations box 
Fairy Book  
Steampunk Insects
Sea Themed ATB
Halloween Luminary 
Fall Assemblage Clock 
Aquarium ATB 
Carolers Lantern
Vintage Christmas Configurations Box
(I think I had trouble picking just a few favorites!) 

You can find me on:

And, here is the list of Hop participants so you'd better get hopping because this list is LOOOONG! ;-) I hope you come back to visit and see what inky mischief I'll be getting into in 2015!
