Merry Christmas

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

I am going to be celebrating tonight as I have just received and signed my first contract as a freelance ‘journalist’ (their words not mine) and am now working on my first 2 magazine articles for Creativity! magazine. 2008 has been an amazing year for me as far as my crafting is concerned, I have been privileged to be a guest designer for Sugarnellie who make the most fab stamps and a designer for Funky Fairy’s Papercraft who make great downloads. I was chosen by Do Crafts to make a project of the week for their website, and since then have been asked to do two more for the new year. My brother and his fiancĂ© have put their faith in me to make all of their wedding stationary, which I am so very honoured to have been asked to do.

I hope you all had a good year and a big thank you to everyone who visits my blog, especially the people who leave such lovely comments. It still amazes me that people want to read my ramblings and see the cards I have made. I did plan to do a blog candy for my 10,000 hits as a thank you but sadly the company I ordered some goodies from missed them out of my delivery and then couldn’t replace them as they had sold out, so it will have to wait until the new year now.
