Happy New Year!!

Visit the Art Glitter Blog today to see this project!
WOW!!  2012 FLEW by!!!  Early in the year I made a commitment to myself to explore different crafting interests.  I felt that I had fallen into "cookie-cutter" crafting - trying to crank out as much as I could for craft shows, sales and festivals.  The joy of creating and experimenting was gone - it was all about the money......So I took a year off from craft shows and fairs.  But...I still wanted to create with a purpose so I applied for spots on a few design team.  I was thrilled and amazed to be chosen to work with some extremely talented people and work with really great products.

As I reflect on 2012 and prepare for the new challenges of 2013, I wanted to re-visit some of my favorite projects from the past year.

Thank you to my new friends at Connie Crystal, Art Glitter, Red Rubber Designs and Clear Scraps for giving me the opportunity to grow as an artist.  I am constantly inspired by the other designers and challenged to create projects that live up to the reputation of these wonderful companies.

Happy 2013!!
