  2. I got to meet several crafty buddies in person this past year and it was awesome! Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. I got to reconnect with some relatives and old friends I had not seen in 15 plus years. Your cards are awesome. Happy New Year!

  4. In 2019 I landed my dream job and in 2020 I’m looking forward to completing my craft room reno. Any thing I might win on this wonderful blog hop would be great to start off in my new space!

  6. We had many good things in 2019 including the weddings of our two daughters, one in May and the other in November. One of them is expecting a new grandson for us, so that will be a highlight for 2020. Thanks for the chance to win and happy new year. I love your African violet card -the colors of the flowers are so rich.

  7. WOW! I’m sure you’re aware but your coloring is AMAZING!!!!! What beautiful cards! And your prize pack is one of the most generous I’ve seen, thanks for the chance to win!!! OH, before I forget – one good thing that happened to me is I was able to fly to visit my Dad this summer and I hadn’t seen him in 13 years. What I’m looking forward to for 2020 is to get out of debt! HOPEFULLY! PRAY for me!!!!! 😉

  8. Happy New Year and thank you for this chance at your very generous giveaway. I love your cards, especially “I think you’re pretty grate!”

    One of my best 2019 memories is watching one of my children, who has special needs, graduate from college and secure a good job. She did what the doubters thought she couldn’t accomplish and overcame so many challenges.

    For 2020, I’m looking forward to my own health improving!

    • thank you Cindy!! I’m glad to have found you — thank you for such a great opportunity. In 2019, I am grateful for more time with my grandgirls, celebrating life and love, and in 2020, I am most hopeful for my goal of being kinder to myself, i am always quick to be kind to others, but I have to improve the self-talk and am focused on it> 🙂 thank you for the question! it’s a good time to reflect on these things.

  9. Wow your cards are beautiful, I love the colors. Happy New Years Crafters! 2019 was a rough year for our family but on a positive note it had brought us closer together as a family. 2020 has hopes of healing and self reflection. Thank you for the chance to win. Crafting has been and will always be my place of relaxation.

  10. Happy New Year! Thanks for this chance. One very good thing that happened in 2019 was my sister moving back. I am looking forward to crafting and spending lots of time with my family in 2020 : )

  14. The best thing that happened to me in 2019 is that I was 30 years old. It may sound weird but I’ve been waiting for this for so long, it’s an age that I have loved a lot since I was young. Which brings me to what I want in 2020, because I always told myself that I will be a mom at 30. So I can’t wait for this project to happen now 🙂 Thank you in any case for your generosity, this price is so wonderful! I cross my fingers and wish all participants good luck!

  23. the best memory i have of 2019 was my family trip to Disney World. My niece and nephew had a blast. hopefully if i can convince my brother and sister in law, we can do a trip to California to visit family and squeeze in a trip to Disneyland!

  24. Cindy, this is my first time to your blog & I am so glad I’ve been introduced to you. Your cards using the Power Poppy stamps are just gorgeous. Your giveaway is very generous. One thing that was so special as I never dreamed it would happen to me is I sang a solo at the 50th anniv. of our small church in front of about 100 people. I’ve never sung a solo in front of anyone person, much less 100. I was beyond nervous & scared, but with prayer, once I picked up the mic. it was like I felt His peace & knew that this was what I was supposed to do & I was told by so many they were blessed. I gave God the glory for it. This year I am looking forward to taking a long road trip with my D.H., our dog & our 16ft. trailer across Canada, or even part way across. Wish you a Joy filled 2020!

  25. Had an awesome trip with my husband in 2019,
    Love your exquisite coloring on these gorgeous cards!!

He helped me get a sc he shed and had it finished and I love it but am still trying to unpack and organize since September but unfortunately have had a few medical issues to fix, so 2020 will find me healthy and happy

  27. One good thing in 2019 is that I didn’t let it break me. It was one of the hardest years of my life, but I’m looking forward to more crafting & stress relief for 2020.

    Love all your creations.
    i was a buddhist earlier and came to the Lord end of 2017. in 2019 too i had my ups and downs but i was able to handover everything to God with faith and prayer and not worry to death. I was a depression patient. Now i am fine and do everything. Jesus sorted all my problems be it finances, my childrens issues etc. I also have made lasting friendships with lovely people in the crafting community. I have been in very difficult situations but God always holds my hand and i trust him completely. Wikth God i am everything without him I am nothing.
    I want to spread the word of God everywhere i go in 2020. I am learning Chinese and Korean as well as i want to one day leave everything and serve my Lord. In crafting i want to pursue coloring as i have fallen in love with colors after taking the 30 day coloring challenge with Cathy Racoosin. Ah when i go to my daughter in New Zealand i will get a place of my own to craft. Isnt that awesome. At the moment i am concentrating on making a bunch of Thank You cards to take with me to show my gratitude to the awesome people who were there for my daughter and grand daughter during my absence.
    With loads of loev and gratitude

  94. Happy New Year! In 2019 I joined crafting community and found so many amazing people! Looking forward to meeting more crafty friends in 2020.

  95. Oh my goodness Cindy, all of your work is always so well done it blows me away! I aspire to Copic colour like you do but I am NOT there yet!
    The best thing that happened to me this year was my first flight EVER where my husband and I treated ourselves to a trip to Cuba with our son & DIL to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary (and it was also my 60 th birthday this year). As for 2020? Maybe another trip????
    Happy New Year Cindy to you and your family
