Wishes & Wants & Giveaway Deets :)

Ever sit back and look at your work and say, "WOW- this is where I was when I started, and this is where I am now!" I really only began seriously paper crafting about a year ago! I did the construction paper, crayola, Elmer's thing through high school and college making goofy cards and memory books, but never a real card. I scrapped an album in 2003 for a cruise my family went on, but I knew NOTHING about this industry. Now, I can see myself evolve every week. I learn more, I try more, and I guess the biggest thing of all, I have pride in what I have done. I sometimes look at some of the things other create and say, WOW! Wish I could be that awesome :)" lol
So, here are my "wishes and wants" for the next year.
I want to learn more about my copics!!
I want to make more buttons!
I want to use at least every Cricut cart I own more than once, lol.
I want to not forget to use some of the embellies I have bought!
I want to host another swap or two!!
I want to give more away and do more Pay It Forward gifts!
I wish I could Destash!!! (HA!)
I want to inspire others and be inspired by others!
I hope I can keep up the great business in my Etsy Shoppe!
I want to get together with local scrappy gals more!
I want to nurture my son's creative side through this hobby of mine!
I want to thank God for allowing me to be able to have the resources to craft as I wish. (Time, Freedom, Money, Space, Support, Inspiration, etc)
Anyone have any awesome wishes or wants to share? I'd love to read them! Comment along.
Thank you to new reader Andrea. She placed an order in my Etsy shoppe that sent me over the 500 sales. I sold my first item in my shop in August of last year . 14 months later I have over 500 sales and I am so thankful for the friendships, business, and support. You all just ROCK :)
