Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, and welcome to the Stamp Man's first blog hop. Not that it's a just a blog hop! Oh no, this is a special award event too, and a place to win blog candy. To hop in the direction of the beat you need to start at the Stamp Man's blog so head over there if you came to me first. If you're already hopping you should have come to me from the lovely Lisa's blog, Lisa's Craft Garden.
Jill's wonderful idea is to share a project of your own from this year that is your best or favourite. Isn't that a lovely idea! A kind of show and tell of your best work. I'm really looking forward to seeing what people choose to share.
For me, my favourite work has been art journalling. I finally got going with it this year and discovered that it's an amazing stress reliever. I've had a tough year with work and illness and found a quiet, peaceful space in my head when working in my art journals. Splattering paint, spraying and smooching ink then cutting and sticking my favourite images are my favourite things to do and I get to do them all in my journals!! I'm not a great journal writer, more of a 'colourer in' :)
I particularly like splatting paint with the adirondack paint dabbers :) VERY satisfying!! And I love getting the paint/ink to dribble down the page :)
It's also been a great excuse to buy new stamp images and I now have a better collection of Tim Holtz stamps, amongst others!!
To get this award for yourself, head over to the Stamp Man blog for the info, and don't forget to leave a comment and link to your own favourite/best crafting project from 2009 whilst you're there! We're looking forward to visiting you to see what your best crafting project has been.
Now if you fancy winning some blog candy, my giveaway is ... [imagine drum roll here :)]
your choice of one Aspects of Design stamp sheet
So if you've been longing for Tracey's fairies or butterflies, or Kay's flowers and dragonflies, here's your chance! Although there are lots of other yummy sheets available too. Click here to have a look.
The code/letter you need from me is
At the end of the hop you'll be back with Jill where you'll email her with the answer.
And you now need to hop over to see the cheery Christine on her blog 'Ladylace's Crafting Space'. But don't forget to leave me a comment before you go - you need to leave a message on ALL the blogs to be eligible for the prize.
Happy Hopping :) You've got until Sunday 3rd January 2010 midnight [GMT] to play so plenty of time to join in.
