A new year.....

Hope you've all had a great Christmas and are ready for a brand new year! My plan for 2009 is to try and get more organised so that I can actually create more of the ideas I come up with. I also want to try my hand at a greater variety of projects this year and hope you'll join me in the process.
To start things off I've got a few new layouts to shareOK make that one less to share ;)
I've also had my very first card set published
But had no idea that one of my cards would be featured on the cover of this month's Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft mag - pretty cool way to start off the new year :)and speaking of magazines, you may remember me mentioning that I was asked to do a feature for Scrapbooking Memories mag and recently came across this in a write up for Vol 10 No 11....
'Back by popular demand is the revived old favourite Back to Basics, with Agnus Kasprzak showing us two layouts; one that can be made in no time at all, and one that you can spend a little more time on.' ...... don't you just love the way they make it sound like people actually know who I am LOL ;) The issue is due out mid January so keep an eye out.

And last but certainly not least I finally have the 'fabulous' blog award the super sweet Renee has awarded me with - thanks so much! 1.You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs2.You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions.3.On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link back to their blog.
Here are my fab addictions.....
1. Trees - have a bit of a thing for tree forms and branches, not only in my scrapping but all through my house too
2. Glitter - I think everything looks better with a bit of glitter ;)
3. Home decor - I get so many cool and inspiring ideas from mags and catalogues
