Season's Givings Blog Hop


Hello! Welcome to the Season's Giving blog hop.  You can find the entire list of hop participants at the end of this post. The Season's Givings blog hop is the chance for us crafters to say thank you for reading our blog throughout the year spread the love by giving away some extra no longer used craft goodies to a new home where they will be loved. :)

So thank you so much for stopping by to see the projects I have shared throughout the year, and thank you for the kind and encouraging comments as well. I didn't get as many projects shared this year or as much blogging done but thanks for sticking with me regardless. I have experienced many changes this past year, new additions to life like a new house and a new job, as well as great loss or loved ones and friends as well.  Here's to 2016 and things to come.

WinterCarolers


Leave a comment below letting me know what big event or change happened for you in 2015 or what you are looking forward to in the coming year.  I will pick one winner from comments to win a slightly loved prize package.  US shipping only. Leave comments by January 5th for a chance to win. I will be heading to CHA so I will pick my winner upon my return. Here is a look at the prize pack which includes some gently loved stamps from Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp and Neat & Tangled,  dies from Simons Says Stamp and Neat & Tangled and new unused paper pads from Lawn Fawn. Who knows I might even find a few more things to add to the stash! ;)

  143. 2015 started with the loss of a friend and ended with the loss of another friend. They were both under age 50. I'll be turning 50 next month. In 2016, my goal is to enjoy every minute of life and to be grateful for who's in it.

  144. On the positive side, I really got into making cards for family and friends. I had started last Christmas and was instantly hooked! On the down side, I had surgery on my hand and the recovery was not smooth! I just got released from my second round of Physical Therapy, and (I am happy to say) finally functional! (It was a very l-o-n-g 9 months!)

  145. I finally had achilles surgery in October. It's been a long healing process and hope to finally be able to walk pain free in the new year.

  147. 2015 life changing events, retirement followed the next day by the loss of a sibling. Began card making - retirement is enjoyable scary. Looking to more (positive) life changing events in 2016 learning a lot of new card making techniques with the support of blogs like yours.

  148. The biggest change for me last year was my BIG SHOT!! My hubby got it for me last Christmas and I guess you can imagine what happened after that! DIES, DIES, DIES... I went crazy! Thanks for the chance to win. Have a great time at CHA. Maybe I'll go in a few years since I love this craft so much.

  150. Thanks for being part of this fun blog hop and for the lovely prize package!
    It's hard to pick just one major thing in 2015 since my oldest son graduated from high school, my 14-year old son was confirmed in our church, and we moved into a new house my husband had spent a year and a half building! So many blessings! This year I am looking forward to growing in my card-making skills. I am hoping to grow my blog, as well, and would love if you became one of my followers! (I'm following you now!) My blog is http://carriescustomcards.blogspot.com
    I just started my blog in July, and I'm really learning a lot as I enter challenges and participate in a DT over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenges.
    I wish you a very blessed 2016!

  161. My very favorite big change during 2015 is that my daughter and son-in-law decided to grow their family through foster parenting with the hope to adopt. I was very lucky to be a foster-grandma to a set of two year old twins and their three year old sibling! The four months they were a part of our family were the most fun of the whole year! We look forward to more placements in the coming year...
