HAPPY NEW YEAR


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL - I HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD CHRISTMAS. IF YOU'RE IN THE UK - I HOPE YOU ARE ALL COPING WITH THE SNOW!


I MUST ADMIT I'VE BEEN IN TWO MINDS WHETHER TO CONTINUE WITH THE BLOG AS I'VE ACTUALLY STOPPED CRAFTING AND AM GETTING RID OF A LOT OF MY CRAFTING GOODIES.


HOWEVER I THOUGHT I'D CARRY ON FOR A BIT LONGER SO WE'LL SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF MY NEW IDEA FOR THE BLOG FOR THE FIRST 6 MONTHS OF THIS YEAR.


EACH WEEK WE WILL TAKE A LETTER OF THE ALPHABET SO OUR CHALLENGE THIS WEEK IS THE LETTER 'A'. IT CAN BE ANYTHING YOU LIKE AS LONG AS IT BEGINS WITH 'A' OR HAS AN 'A' ON THERE SOMEWHERE.


NATURALLY EACH WEEK WE WILL CONTINUE WITH A LETTER OF THE ALPHABET SO IF YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR INCHIES IN ADVANCE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO.


LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.


HERE'S MY START OF FOR THIS YEAR

Happy New Year to you too Fiona, hope you and your family had a good Christmas.

I am really glad you decided to carry on with the blog.... at least for the time being. Mondays wouldn't be the same again without you!

I'll be back with an A soon!

Love KarenX

It is a great idea and I've seen this before and thought it was fun! It's also good to be able to plan ahead a little, some weeks are busier than others!

I shall do my best to keep up!

Hi Fiona and Happy New Year! No snow here in Florida, but it is really cold. We are not used to this here, teehee.

I so sorry you have decided to stop crafting. It is my get-away from real life and I find so much joy in it. And it is challenge blogs such as this one that push me to step out of my artistic box and try new things, so I hope you will reconsider and continue on. I know that it is alot of work though, so with that being said, I sure that all of us would understand if real life was calling you to take a break. I look forward to playing along!

Happy New Year Fiona. I have really missed the challenges over the past few weeks, so I am delighted to hear you will be carrying on for a while longer. I think the idea of using the alphabet is a good one. I'll try and come with something beginning with...... A!!

Basement gal said...

Fantastic, I've missed the inchy blog. Happy new year to you and Is'll get on with my A.

Irish3 said...

Well, I'm all in favor to keeping the blog going!! I would miss it greatly if you decided to quit, but I understand you might have to make a decision that's best for you. In the meantime.. here are my Aviator Inchies for letter A!

Hi Fiona. I can't believe someone would voluntarily give up crafting. But then, you have your singing and acting which is a creative outlet too. I'll go think of what to do with the letter A.

Melisa Waldorf said...

I didn't realize how many stamps I had that qualified for this one. I made 3 this week!

Give up crafting ??? gosh thats quite a decision. is it getting in the way of life?? ( instead of the other way)

I couln't quite decide what to do for a as other A's keep on going through my mind. but quickly made this so I had something
