Linkcrafty Cards - Review of 2021


Hi friends...Happy New Year!!!

I was reviewing my Best 9 2021 as a number of peeps were on Instagram and it made me reflect on really how my crafting had grown during the last year.

When I look at my most popular Instagram posts, I am not surprised as to what showed up and the companies that inspire my creativity - Pinkfresh Studio, Gina K Designs, Pigment Craft Co, MFT Stamps. I have great respect for all of these companies and all the small businesses that have tried to navigate the last 18 months.

There have been positive and negative experiences in the pandemic, and it has impacted everyone around the globe in some way. People have lost loved ones and my heart goes out to them. People have lost loved ones not just because of Covid itself, but because of the impact it has had on the health system. The casualties of the pandemic also include those people who have lost loved ones because of surgeries being postponed, treatment delays and time running out because specialist appointments had to be cancelled.

We are living the history that in years to come our future generations will learn about in history class. They will hopefully be wiser, and will discuss how the pandemic came to be and what was learned because of it. Hopefully science will grow in leaps and bounds and continue to find ways to protect the human race.

Phew, that got a bit deep didn't it??? BUT New Year is a time of reflection.

From my little corner of the crafting world I want to take this opportunity to thank those companies that believed in me in 2021 and felt I had something to offer and inspire other crafters...Pinkfresh Studio, Altenew, Pigment Craft Co & Spellbinders.

I hope I can grow in confidence with talking to the camera a little more in 2022, so I can share me a little bit more. While I think sharing who you are as a crafter and some personal info is such a lovely way of connecting in our virtual world, I just find this a little hard and can not for the life of me think of why anyone would be interested or care about who I am or what I do??? I think thats why I have a dream to work on one of my favourite stamp companies design teams...to be part of a team of crafters, and have purpose.

Anyway, I have really had a good chat today and I hope it has given you a bit of insight into who I am.

2022 already has some work in the pipeline with a stamp company whom I will be guesting for. I made quite a number of cards before christmas for them for their magazines and stamp packaging. Also, I have been invited to guest blog with the same company with a new release, so watch out for that!

I hope I can grow in confidence with talking to the camera a little bit more in 2022.

Let's look up and look forward to 2022 as it could be full of wonderful surprises!!!
