Hello 2015! I hope that you've all enjoyed a beautiful holiday season and are looking forward to a shiny, new year. I know I am.
First if you have not yet checked out the traditional Year in Review Bloghop over at the Stars & Stamps Blog, bookmark it and get to it, you won't be sorry. I didn't do a lot of card making or blogging in 2014 so I opted out this year but I can tell you that it's not always easy to choose favorites and invariably the ones that make it into a card makers top pics are the best of their best and it's a great way to kick-off your craft inspiration for the new year.
Okay on to resolutions. Do you make them? Find them a waste of time? I tend to 'staddle the fence'. I enjoy the 'restart' feeling of a new year and like to spend some time thinking about what I'd like to do differently in the coming year. One of the things on my 2015 list is to craft more and share it here. (And maybe not just cards).

I've been working on using up odds-and-ends... working on images I printed but never colored, taking ones I colored or extras I'd stamped along the way and finally making them into cards. Using up some of the nicer scraps in my scrap box. Since I have some cards that have been tucked away with the ultimate goal of sending them to OWH my first crafty goal is getting enough done to take advantage of the best postal rate and finally send them on their way. I think this will be a good addition since masculine cards are always in demand and the Thinking of You sentiment makes it flexible enough that it could be used for a birthday, a thank you or even father's day.
