A year of "Stuff by Sammi"

Well today it has been a year since I started this craft blog... and it has far exceeded my expectations.... it starting off as a simple process diary/ blog it lead me to the wonderful world of Stamping :) - the Sisterhood of the blogging stampers lead to some great friendships :)
This world of craft bloggers is quite a wonderful one - so encouraging and friendly!
I have learnt so much from the huge amount of inspirational blogs online.

Not having a huge amount of disposable income to spend on stamps lead me to drawing my own doodles/ images so that I could enter challenges and then I decided to make them available for others too and sell digital images ... later came my challenge blog and wonderful Design team who make the Crafty Muse images look good on their creations... then came a stampmaker and once a few more hurdles are jumped I will be promoting these and taking orders.

READERS/ COMMENTERS/ FRIENDS :: I'd like to thank you all for your support and friendship over the last year :)

A few people have been showing their 10 fav cards of 2008 etc, I'm doing a slight twist on that and showing you a year in this blog (pulling out a fav card/ project from each month).


none in February... MARCH
