This year I did a lot of trying out new things as well as renewing old skills. Most of my creative energies were spent on quilting, drawing, making drawing tutorials, lettering, making lettering tutorials, Bible journaling and watercolor painting. Other pursuits included lots of travel, taking online classes and reading.
In reviewing my activities, I chose my top 10 favorite results.
In July, I completed a watercolor painted card front every day of the month. I chose three favorites.

Overall, it was a very successful year. It was hard to choose so few as favotires as I really didn't have any real 'stinkers'.
I hope you stick around to see what's shaking in 2019. I plan to keep creating!
