Gifts received..
These are the art goodies that I got.

a Tim Holtz alphabet stencil
a book full of stencils
a set of 24 Graphitint pencils
a bejeweller and some jewels
a set of Dylusions spray inks

My mum sent me this photo frame and a subscription to National Geographic.

a friend gave me all this baking stuffs, the 2 little pots are full of edible cake glitter.

I also got vouchers to buy Lush products and a voucher to buy a bead for my Troll bracelet, a cd and some dvds.

Last year I got fed up hearing everyone talk about the endless options of how to journal the year
, so as a joke I said i would journal my year in i did.

I made 52 cakes over the course of the year. I have yet to make them into a book or box of recipe cards, but that will get done at some point. I am just relieved to get to the end of the challenge, and to have it complete.

So did you start one of 'those' journal your year thingies this time last year??? which one did you start and did you complete it??

Which ones are you doing this year? I would love to see some links in the comments section.

I am not going to start a year long challenge, but instead I want to do lots of short workshops and online prompts in my art journals, who knows i might even get one filled up.


  1. Oooh lots of goodies. Am green at the pencils and sprays!

    I can't wait to see what you do with your 52 cakes piccies :P

    I didn't sign up to a year long challenge last year but have signed up to the calendar journal over on this year. I saw other peoples versions all around blogland last year and really wanted to take part this year :)

  2. Lots of lovely pressies...I got the Dylusions spray inks too!!
    I did the Wight craft circles scrapbook challenge (as my friend and me run it, I kinda had to take part!)and I also took part in the Sketchbook challenge and sent my book off last week. This year I am doing the calender challenge over at Kates blog (Carmen has posted link above) which I am really looking forward to. All links are also on the side bar of my blog at x
