Paper Crafts Magazine Swan Song

Gulp.  I'm not sure what to say. 

You should have arrived here from my sweet friend Karolyn's blog

The Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine Go-to Gals said a fond farewell last week.  You can see my post here

I stumbled into crafting because I needed something for myself.  A hobby.  Something that gave me personal joy and a creative outlet.  Something to give me some "me" time.  I also wanted something that could take up little space and wouldn't make too much of a mess. Ha!!!

Within a month of picking up the hobby, I started submitting to Paper Crafts and one month later I had my first acceptance. 

The rest is history.  

While making pretty things out of stamps, ink, and paper is fun, the people are what make this whole hobby so out-of-this-world fantastic.  I've made some of my best friends today though paper crafting and I know that Paper Crafts magazine (and Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine) is at the center of that.   

I am so thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine family.  

To all of my paper crafting friends (close or not) - I am so thrilled to have been a part of this with you. 

To the editors, 
I know I said it last week but I'll say it again... I adore and respect and appreciate each one of you.  So much.  Thank you for everything you did for this community. I wish you all the best.

Now for a few projects...

This card would have been on the March 2015 cover.  

This was a card for our Go-to Gal Sparks column.  I featured Pretty Pink Posh sequins and dies. 

And one last new one - to say thank you - to everyone. 

Now you're off to Niki's blog.

Big hugs to everyone today.  Thanks for making it to my blog.
