A 20th Anniversary card, Hello 2022 & a 2021 Recap

Hello Friends!

Welcome to 2022 and my newest project For Others Creations. I am still working out the details and should have more information in the next couple of days.

I have just a couple of projects left to share from 2021 including this 20th anniversary card for my oldest daughter and her husband. We were quite busy with our granddaughters while they stole away for a 5 day anniversary trip and hubby was off for 2 weeks so I enjoyed our holiday break.

I wanted to keep this card classic & elegant so I used Simon Says Stamp’s Detail Pincushion Plate for the background on brushed gold with the numbers cut from black glitter paper and the anniversary die cut word on a black pearl strip.

Now the fun part of the post for me. As most of you know I celebrated turning 60 years old in 2021 and starting moving toward not teaching classes to a year just for me. Here’s the tally of the fun of my birthday year.

I participated in 10 online events & retreats as well as 8 or so online classes, plus I attended 2 local retreats with the Angels!

I created somewhere in the neighborhood of

  • 315 cards
  • 17 Bible journaling pages & 7 faithdex cards
  • 6 mini books/albums and 1 large gift album for a friends birthday
  • 1 full size wall art piece for our master bedroom
  • plus 4 ATC’s, 1 calendar, 1 snowlady wood piece, 4 ornaments, finished spring and summer in my 12 x 12 wall art series and about 10 projects that need finished.

That’s over 350 art projects created in 2021. Stay tuned, 2022 is just getting revved up!

Thanks for stopping by my humble blog.

Wishing you many blessings, much joy and a bright & beautiful New Year ahead!
