Last year I wrote an end-of-year post, and here we are again- 365 days later (well, actually it was 366, since it was a leap year...)  I really like to reflect upon what I have done in the past, so I can move ahead in the future.  2012 has been the best year yet, crafty or otherwise.

Here are some of my creative accomplishments from 2012:

  • I have had 2 projects land on the covers of Paper Crafts Magazine
  • I competed in the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition for the second year in a row!  I made some amazing friendships with those top 20 girls, and we keep in touch pretty much daily
  • I was recruited by one of my favorite companies to join their design team.  Being with Clear and Simple Stamps has been amazing!
  • I was voted as honorable mention for Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty.  It did not get me a crown, but I was humbled by the love from the people who voted for me.  (aaaaaaand I got the big prize! hehe)
  • I illustrated a book! (will be released 2013)
  • Even more crafty friendships have been made, both online and in person (hello Jessica and Suzanne, my weekly stamping buddies!)
  • Followers/visitors/commenters keep coming back....I must be doing something right! Right?  Thanks to everyone who takes the time to visit Our Change of Art :)

I've seen a few posts around the block from other bloggers who have featured their favorite cards from each month that have made.  Although I love reading those posts, from me today you are going to get the good and the bad and the in-between. Sorted by month, here's everything I blogged about this year:













I love seeing the photography get better from month to month and you can also see how I phased out the sheet music background and phased in the wood :)

My favorite?

See you in 2013!!!
