Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop (and 12 Days - Day 3!)

Hello friends!  Today is a bittersweet day as we say farewell to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine!  A huge thank you to all who organized this hop event and I can't wait to see everyone's creations!  If you're here from Katie's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to Jennifer's blog to get started!

It is a bit fitting that my last published card with Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking (shown above) was from this year's Holiday Cards & More (vol.9) as the first card I had published with PC&S was in the same issue, volume 5 back in 2010.  I was so excited to be picked, I could hardly stand it!  It was only the 2nd card I ever had published and it felt great!

I'd had a number of cards picked up by PC&S over the years and loved the "happy mail" and the parties on Facebook where Virginia always had some good virtual tunes for us to listen to and Susan always kept us in the loop about where she was with delivering her good news of the day.  Unfortunately I had to stop submitting from about 2013 onward as I lost my crafty mojo when I was pregnant with Amelia and had almost no crafty time after she was born.  Ironically, now that she's older and I'm finding myself with some more time, there is nowhere to submit for publication.  I am so disappointed that this wonderful community that I've spent so much time with feels like it is going away.  I guess it is up to all of us now, to maintain the friendships and the creativity that let this blossom over the past 5 years the way it has.  This is a wonderful, creative industry and I've been so blessed to be a part of it.

Thank you, PC&S!  Thank you Susan and Cath for inspiring me for so many years!  Thank you Go-To Gals for making crafting so much fun!

Next up is Cecilia!  Thank you so much for visiting today and I'll be back tomorrow with another post of Holiday Inspiration!
