WELL I NEVER WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IT !!





































Hi, well I never would have believed it back in April when I started my blog with 4 followers I would end up with 217 followers by the end of December.........wow, Thank you everyone so much for your interest and terrific support. Have to give a very special thank you to Daniele (Musings of a Chocoholic), she knows why..........lol

Plus some wonderful opportunities have arisen with being part of the LIIU design team for a term and chosen to be a Guest Artist with the wonderful Gingersnappers and in 2011 will be a Guest Artist for Scrolls Work, plus since I've attended Art Classes, my work is now being shown in the Tate Gallery...........nah thats a big big fib..........lol

Its also been a year of personal tragedy and joy and I thank you for all your support

After seeing a lot of blogs over the past couple of days where crafters are choosing their favourite makes which I have so enjoyed looking at. Thought I would show you just a few things that have given me great pleasure in making. Hope you enjoy looking at them.

Wishing you all a very Happy and Joyous New Year. Hugs Annette xx
