Can you believe 2012 is in the history books already? It FLEW by for me. One of my many resolutions for my lucky 2013 is to spend more time creating than I got to spend in 2012. That means a few things have to change - I have to say no a little more often - that's harder than it sounds - and I have to manage my space so that it's always ready for me to create in.
One of the things I've started doing to create space is giving things away. I remember when I first started with Stampin' Up! way back in 2001, I was astonished at how much stuff more senior demonstrators just gave away! They'd bring TONS of stuff to meetings and swaps and just gift it to people. Since I was still in massive acquisition mode, I couldn't believe it.
But 12 years later, I get it. You acquire a lot of things, and not all of them get used. Or you buy two by accident. Or you know someone will love it SO, so much more than you do, that it's just a joy to give it away.
That's what today is about. A beautiful, sweet friend, Latisha Yoast, came up with the idea to just... give. We will end the year and start the new one with a gift. So every single blogger on the Seasons Givings Blog Hop is giving something of their own away. Every. Single. One. No sponsors, no one knows what other bloggers are doing - we all are just choosing a gift from our hearts to yours and doing this thing!
So grab your favorite Happy New Year beverage and settle in for some beautiful art, and tons of chances to get a gift to make your New Year brighter.
For my gift today, I chose this stamp set because every girl should kick off her year with some fabby footwear!
Every person who leaves me a comment - and, if you want to - I'd love to see your wishes or plans for 2013 - will have a chance to win this set, plus a fun little mystery accessories package. Be sure when you leave your comment, if you don't have a blogger profile with an email address attached, you need to leave me an email address to contact you with. You must leave your comment by Friday, January 4th to be eligible.
So here's my card for today with my favorite stamp from this set - that gorgeous rain boot. I'm incapable of doing this boot in anything but Pool Party - it's SO pretty!
I hope this awesome blog hop brings some sunshine into your life today. Enjoy the journey and Happy New Year! :)
