Season's Givings AND Unity Blog Hop + A VIDEO!


Happy New Year everyone!! This blog post is part of both the Season's Giving Hop AND the Unity Stamp Company blog hop post! I'm glad you're here, and happy hopping!


2014 has been such an amazing year personally and crafty-wise! In 2014 I officially became a member of the Unity Stamp Co design team, continued with the DCWV team, and got to be a part of the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft team! These are companies I believe in, love, and use all the time! Thank you for the fabulous opportunities in 2014 and thank you to my readers and commeneters! I love you!


I made this project just for this New Year's Day hop! It's a mini mosaic canvas using a Unity Stamp "One Day at a Time" stamped with gelatos. Then I colored the background with my new Peerless Watercolors! I created a fun video showing you the entire process of my mini canvas!


I'd love to have you watch my video, give it a big thumbs up, and even subscribe to my channel! In 2015 I hope to have a lot more youtube videos to share with you all! Thanks for the support :)




A detailed supply list is also listed in my YouTube description! Remember to Embrace The New Day!

I have 2 prize packs to give away as my THANK YOU to you! Leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win! Here they are...



AND since this post is also part of the UNITY blog hop, there is an amazing Unity prize pack for a lucky commenter!


Don't forget about the amazing Unity Stamp Co sales this weekend! They're hosting a huge warehouse sale that even includes free shipping!



Make sure to leave comments on the Unity Design Team posts AND the Season's Giving posts for a chance to win some amazing prizes!!

Thank you for an amazing year! Cheers to a fabulous 2015!
