My Big Announcement

After much encouragement and support from dear friends and family I am about to embark on a new venture - my very own digital stamp store!  Needless to say, I'm very excited, but also a little nervous.  There's still lots to be done and even more for me to learn but I think I'm up for the challenge!


I'd like to take the opportunity now to thank you all for your  support, your comments and compliments over the last couple of years, you've really given me the motivation to continue.  In all the time that I've been running this blog I've never had a single negative comment, message or email and I think that just goes to show what a wonderful world we crafters share!

I'll be taking a bit of respite over the Christmas and New Year period to catch up with my family, eat, celebrate, eat, do some shopping, some more eating, a little bit of cooking followed by more eating - I'm sure you can all relate!  Somewhere in there we're planning a road trip down to Melbourne with the kids and Jeff's mum (who is coming all the way from Oregon in the U.S.).

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
~ unknown
Cheers,
Beccy Muir
