2020 is coming to an end.  Time to move forward to 2021 and start it off with POSITIVITY, KINDNESS AND HOPE!

This year wasn’t all bad for me.  I tend to look at the positive side of things despite what we are currently facing in this world and this horrible-no-good-virus.  So, positives…I got on, not one but TWO, design teams this year.  The first one was in the beginning of 2020 with a company called You Artist in Israel.  I took this opportunity to get my feet wet with being on a design team.  The second team, which will go to mid 2021, is GRAPHIC 45… I was so excited when Graphic 45 announced that was I going to be one of their Brand Ambassadors.  I have tried out every year for about 6 years.  I finally got it.  It has been fun.

There was a big disappointment this year for me and that was when I had to post-pone my wedding.  I was in the middle of making my favors when covid 19 was getting strong and everything started to get cancelled.  The wedding was originally schedule for April 2020, and we pushed it back to April 2021.  I believe we will keep this date and not push it back again.  We are ready to be married.  Plus, I can’t wait to make a wedding album. I am ready to get back into the wedding spirit and start working on my favors again.

SOMETHING NEW… I tried something new this year and that was Copic Markers and found that I love Lawn Fawn products.  I learned (and still learning) how to color with copics and creating cards with Lawn Fawn dies.  I have been having fun coloring little critters.

Enough about me, it’s time to reflect on the projects I have created this year.  As mentioned above, you will see more card posts in 2020 than any other year.
