Fabulous New Year to YOU!

I know it has been quite a while since I blogged and to be honest, I have been way to busy with this and that and a little thing called Christmas :o)   I am also working on some upcoming releases...one of which begins this coming Monday morning for Gina K Designs...some exciting stuff is coming!

It is the end of 2010 and this year has been one of challenges and blessings.  I must say the Lord was in control of every bit and as the trials and challenges came His guiding hand was always there as I leaned upon Him for strength.  The Lord taught us so much that I know we needed to learn and for that we are thankful.  It is comfort in knowing that 2011 will all go according to His perfect plan.... and nothing surprises our omniscient God!  He will give strength and guidance for every step as we lean upon Him.

2010 was FULL of blessings I never even dreamed possible. I was Guest Designer for Gina K. Designs in March and Layers of Color in September and am now full time with both teams.  The Lord has also blessed in having some designs published in magazines (which was a goal I had for 2010) and He abundantly blessed as I persevered through more rejections that I ever imagined, lol!  I must say if it is a goal for you to be published...just go for it and SUBMIT, lots!!!!!!  
Now to some amazingly exciting news.... In less than a month, I am going to CHA in California. Yep, all the way across the country from my little part of North Carolina!  I am completely stunned about  how the Lord opened the doors for this amazing opportunity.  I will be representing Layers of Color and have lots to prepare for the conference.  I am taking my camera, so know I will have LOTS to share the end of January and early February.  It will be so exciting to meet those in the paper crafting industry and network with various companies.  BIG thanks to Laura for this opportunity and looking forward to seeing what the Lord has for Layers of Color in 2011!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I will be back Monday morning with some GKD sneak peeks for the upcoming release on Thursday, January 6th!

Blessings,
