It was a good and bad year. I think the first 6 months of the year I was in a semi catatonic state. My mom passed away last year, on Dec. 27... so it was a hard beginning... then in June we went on vacation to Disney, and I think that was the first that I'd felt happy in over 6 months.
A year later, and things have settled back to normal, my dad seems OK, my brother is OK, and it's OK, but weird.
I think 2009 will be great, at least I hope. I had the best meeting today. I met with the owner of an embellishment company located here in Pittsburgh. It's called Creative Charms and I will be doing their catalog. How cool is that?? They have really cute stuff. I purchased some of their embellies this past summer and left a comment on their blog, then she called me for catalog work! Bonus ~ I came home with a bag full of fun stuff to play with, too!!
I also acquired 2 new clients, besides the catalog stuff, so I hope to be busy this coming year.
And finally, some scrappy stuff to share. I just finished up my layouts for the Scrap N' Supply Shack's January Kit. I had a lot of fun using this stuff, especially on this wall hanging!
I recycled some cardboard! I had a blast throwing down white paint, silver paint, blue paint...then while the paint was wet, I threw some Martha Stewart silver glitter on it... I was having soooo much fun!
Here's another one I did with the kit... lots of handstitching and some doodling.
OK, that's it for now.
I wish you a very Happy New Year. If you go out, stay safe. Me, I'll be here in my nice safe, warm, comfy house watching the ball drop in my jammies!
Take Care! Blog ya next year!!
