Season's Givings Blog Hop

Hey everyone!

Happy New Year!! I am SO excited to be kicking off the new year by participating in the second annual Season's Givings Blog Hop! You should have arrive here from Stephanie Muzzulin's blog!

If you're hopping along and you're just stopping by for the first time, let me say WELCOME! I'm so glad you're here :) :) If you're a regular follower who's just stopping by then be sure to check out the hop list and visit ALL of the amazing blogs along the hop!

This awesome hop was started as a way to say THANK YOU to our amazing followers for all your love and support throughout the past year. And what better way to say thank you than with giveaways?! That's right my friends, there's a giveaway at EVERY stop along the hop! Holy moly that's a lot of crafty goodness!

As you all know, the holidays are a crazy busy time for all of us, so I apologize but I didn't whip up a big shiny new project for you guys :( BUT I thought it would be fun to do a little year in review! 

First, if you're just meeting me, I'd love if you'd stop by my very first blog post this year and read a little about me.

And, new follower or not, I'd like to say THANK YOU to each and every one of you for sharing in these big moments from the past year:

NONE of these things would have been possible without YOUR support!

AND here are a few of my favorites cards from the last year:

Ok sweet friends, I HOPE that makes up for my lack of a new card!!

Now who's ready for the giveaway?! 

I have a big bundle of UNITY goodies for you!!
Simply leave me a comment and I will choose a winner on Monday January 6th!

I'd also LOVE it if you would check out:

Alright sweet friends, it's time to hop on over to Christiana Reuling's blog!
