Crafty Favorites from 2013

Well, it's time for everyone to be doing their 2013 Crafty Favorites! ;)  So, here are mine!  I've chosen one per month--enjoy!


And with that, I'm out!  HUGS and Happy New Year!  Here's to another fabulous year of crafting, sharing, and caring! :)


Yes, my email was hacked.  No, I'm not in Italy.  Blarg. I've spent all day trying to take care of this issue.  I hope it has been taken care of now, but if it doesn't stick this time (this is the third new password I've had to create) then I will be switching to using my gmail account.  So...stay tuned! *sigh*

Happy New Year!
