Au Revoir, 2012 ~ Hello 2013!!!

I can't believe how fast Christmas has's just flown by!! I really hope you all had a wonderful and enjoyable festive holiday and of course, as always...mine was eventful ~ the first bite of my Christmas dinner broke one of my teeth and I spent Christmas in agony until I could find an emergency dentist on the 27th!! There's never a dull moment here at Chez Williams'!!!

Anyway, here we are, the final day of 2012 and it's definitely been an action packed year for me. If I started to list it all, I'd be here for the whole of!!! So, I thought I'd just look back and reflect on the past year and some of my highlights and favourite cards!! So, without hesitation ~ here we go...


I was over the moon when I saw Tim Holtz pin this on one of his boards on Pinterest!! A little glass of vino and a happy dance was in order that day!!



This month saw my first Making Cards cover of the year with the Simply Beautiful project.
I was also asked to appear alongside Barbara Gray in Crafts Beautiful, three times during 2012 and this was the first of those projects.









...AND FINALLY, my proudest moments were ~
A tweet complimenting one of my projects from Lord Tim Holtz!!! As you can imagien, there was quite a lot of excited jumping up and down when I saw this arrive in my inbox!!

and last but not least, the culmination of all my hard work was rewarded when I could see my projects appearing on the cover of 11 issues of Making Cards Magazine and the Making Cards Specials!!

...and I made the cover of the first issue of 2013 with five of my card projects!!!

So, all that's left for me to say is...
Thank you for all your support in 2012 and I hope you'll stick with me throughout 2013 for some exciting new adventures and probably, another very eventful year here at Chez Williams'!!!


Love Emma xxx

Sharing your success and skills through blogging, tweeting etc, well it has been wonderful, Emma. Here's to more of the same and less of the rest! The rest being anything you really DO NOT want.
