2014 Year in Review

Friday, January 9, 2015

Morning, y'all, and happy Friday!  I'm so glad the weekend has finally arrived, even though we don't have anything really special planned.  My big kiddos do have their first basketball games tomorrow morning, but because I've been spending a lot of time playing catch-up over the last couple of weeks, I'm really looking forward to a little time just to play in my creative space.  I've got a Noel Mignon kit that has hardly been touched and am expecting a Stampin' Up box, filled with my staples, as well as a few things I couldn't pass up, to arrive later this afternoon.  So, I'm not hurting for supplies, just looking for time.

Anyway, I always so enjoy sharing my favorite projects of the previous year at the beginning of a new one.  I usually share both a card and layout review, but this year, I'm going to stick with my layouts.  I haven't been making as many cards as in previous years, simply because I'm no longer designing for Wplus9 Design, and many of my cards focused around Dawn's new releases.  There usually wasn't time to create pages for such, even though that is where my heart has always been.  I had wanted to devote more of my creative time to pages in 2014, so my being let go may have been a bit of a blessing in disguise.

So, for those of you who are new to my blog or considering becoming a follower, this is for you.  And for those of you who have been with me for the long haul, first of all, THANK YOU!  And secondly, I hope that you still leave here today inspired to make your weekends creative ones.  Without further adieu, here are my top 14 of 2014 in no particular order.  Oh, and each photograph is linked up to its original post for all the details and supplies in its making.  Just click on it.  Enjoy!
