Bye 2013 – Welcome 2014

Posted by swewi on December 31, 2013

With the year I have had in my personal life, I am happy to see the back of 2013!

From a creative perspective, it has been OK πŸ™‚ I didn’t get as much time to create as I maybe wanted, but I treasured each creative moment massively. In 2013 I joined two amazing teams/sites: Sketchabilities and PaperHaus. I was also lucky to be a guest designer for D-Lish scraps, my GO-TO shop for most of my embellies! I am so thankful for the opportunities I had this year!

I decided to close my own challenge site, Challenge Me Happy. Not an easy decision, it was so much fun running it!

I kept myself busy with Crazy Monday Kits, adding PL kits to the family in July! It’s hard work when you already work full time and raise a family but I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing it! The scrapbooking business is a very hard business to be in. I am hoping things will run smoothly and successfully in 2014 for Crazy Monday Kits, and me!

I have been enjoying doing Project Life this year as well, and have been sharing some of my pages here. I am a few months behind at the moment, but who cares! It will get done, and my family LOVES looking through my albums, and that’s all that matters to me!

And finally, my favourite LO’s of 2013. In no particular order, here you go. (My previous favourites can be found here: 2012, 2011,Β 2010, 2009, 2008).

Tell me your favourite in the comments, and I will send a RAK to one lucky commenter. Thank you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Just a quick post to share my latest LO’s. The next post from me will hopefully just be a couple of days away, showcasing my favourite LO’s from 2013!

So, first a BOM that I did for PaperHaus. Pretty chuffed with this LO, it came together quite nicely.

November/December are just CRAZY months – do you feel the same? There is so much in the calendar, and then there’s the list of things I WANT to do, either with the kids, or just for Christmas sake πŸ™‚ Blogging tends so suffer because of all this, and I apologise for being MIA for over a month. It’s late and I should be in bed, so a short update it will have to be πŸ™‚

For PaperHaus “Remember Me” – basically BoM pages; again using Crate Paper πŸ™‚

For Sketchabilities, sketch #103, using the wonderful Crazy Monday November kit:

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit my blog today!
