Year In Review - 2015

YEAR IN REVIEW
2015
            The year started off with excitement as I headed to CHA for the first time.  I loved every minute of it.  I met the Graphic 45 team, Laura Dension with Following the Paper Trail, Jim Hankins The Gentleman Crafter, AnnetteGreen (Graphic 45 Design Team Member), Tim Holtz and many others.   The year was full of firsts for me.  Besides going to CHA for the first time, I taught my first class in March, which I was super nervous for, but it was a lot of fun.  I continued teaching a couple more class.  In May, I started the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenges which is doing projects from Tim Holtz book “Compendium of Curiosity III.”  These challenges were hosted by LindaLedbetter.  I started with challenge number 29 and won Curiosity Crew’s Choice for that challenge.  I was so excited.  I plan on doing the challenges again next year and start off with challenge 1 this time. 

            Then in August, Laura Denison posted a design team sign up and since she is the reason I got into mini albums I had to apply for her team.  Which I got accepted for.  Woohoo.  It starts next year and I can’t wait.  Laura also had her first scrap retreat in August in St. Louis and of course I had to go.  That was a lot of fun, met a ton of people and made new friends.  I had a great time and will do it again next year as she has two more retreats lined up.

            The last part of the year was mainly working on projects until the holidays came around and then it was working on making presents for the family.  In December I did get G45er of the Week on Graphic 45’s Facebook Page.  They choose my Accordion Style Plus Mini Album. 

            In conclusion I had a pretty great year.  I have already started thinking about next year and how to improve it.  I plan to update my blog, start selling kits for my projects and possibly start a Ustream show.  The future is bright!
