Hello. I used to do this when I first started blogging, doing a year in review of my favourite posts from that year. But one year I stopped and I never did it again. Although each year end, I do think about it. I'm a bit of a don't look back person, but always look forward, what happened, happened, let's not dwell on it, just look to the future.
Anyway, maybe I had a bad year, the year that I decided to stop. So now, I think I will have my 2013 year in review. I am writing this before I have selected my pieces, so even I am intrigued as to what I will come up with! Hold tight! Also I like to select one piece from each month, so this is what I will do.
I think January belonged to Isabella. Difficult to colour, but I love the softness and vintageness of the entire piece and the diecut detail. Check her out: HERE.
This was a commission for a 50th birthday album and had to feature cats. I had soooo much fun with this. Check it out HERE.
This was difficult, as I made a few pieces I liked this month. But I chose this one as it was the first time EVER that I had done a white on white theme. Loved how it turned out, but still haven't done one since! This was a journal, which you can check out HERE.
This was no contest. A sweet 6th birthday card, made for a dear sweet girl I know. Check it out HERE.
Dreams are renewable. I remember wanting to create lots of layers and this is my favourite La Blanche stamp. Used several times now. Check it out HERE.
Where flowers bloom. I don't know. Bright, sunny colours do it for me everytime! Check out the dimension HERE.
Well it seems I lost my mojo for a while, as I had only one posting in July. Fortunately it is one I like and I think worthy of a mention here. I made a box for holding recipe cards. Still love it!
Frantaged to the hilt, but I love THIS.
OK. This was the time I really got into Sizzix dies. Made this cute wallhanging, with a little notepad tucked inside. Check it out HERE:
Hmmm, once again a difficult choice. However, I went with my Sizzix love at the time and the birdhouse I made. I love birdhouses, real or imagined.
November was my most prolific month of the year! I made a few things that I like, but this mixed media collage is my absolute favourite and I'm not sure that I could ever bear to be parted from it. For those who don't follow me regularly, mixed media was a medium that I started to dabble in, in 2013 and this was a piece that I created which I still love. Check it out HERE.
Well I end the year with another mixed media piece, which I love. Expect to see MORE in 2014. I am still learning and still loving it, so who knows where it will go. Check this piece out HERE.
Thank you for looking.
I am entering this in at Catered crop 2013 Recipe Swap.
