Countdown to 2016….

The countdown to 2016 is now underway in my own country and in many parts of the world the “bells” have already declared the first day of 2016.

onelynnemoncrieffccI cannot thank you enough for being so loyal to my Blog and to have your friendships and also to be inspired by all of you.  Even at those times when my blog has been less active, on my return I wasn’t sure if anyone would be there to visit but when I would check-in, there would still be comments left for me to read even if I was unable to visit your own blogs.  You probably don’t realise just how much that actually meant to me, especially during those times.twolynnemoncrieffccSo here’s to you …. 2016 – if you can, be kind to all of us, try and keep us as healthy and as safe as possible, bring good times our way and allow us to continue to cement good friendships.threelynnemoncrieffccIt seems a nice point of the year to look back and to acknowledge the amazing people who make crafting such a joy for me with the amazing products they create and allow me to play with. I never imagined I would be in such a privileged position and it still makes me pinch myself. (In the middle of drafting this post I had a wee chuckle to myself as you could mistake the following for an Oscar acceptance speech!!!! )

Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals
Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door
Suzanne at Oxford Impressions
Leandra at PaperArtsy along with Darcy
Chris and Sharon at Redlead Paperworks
Laura at That’s Crafty
All at Stampington whose support and encouragement has been incredible and a final Thank You to the lovely Catherine Moore at Character Construction

To all of you who continue to inspire me and who I am lucky to have your friendship, I truly cannot wait to see what you all create throughout 2016, I certainly know I will continue to be amazed!
Here’s to all of you…..
Happy New Year Wishes,
Lynne x

    Lynne, I wish you could know what an amazing inspiration your imaginative and original work has been to me and how much your encouragement has meant to me! I thank Dianne Marcoux in Canada who suggested I visit your beautiful blog and I can truly say that from that first visit the enchantment began! Every visit is exciting and it’s my pleasure and a privilege to see what you create. Just try to stop me from gazing in wonder at your wonderful stamping; subtle colouring; natural elements; lace and those embellishments that always have your magical touch not to mention the dreams and stories your art always suggests! Have a Joyous and Creative New Year, Lynne. Thank You for all you Share. xx

    What a wonderful lacy skirt to welcome in 2016. This post brimming with good will and thankfulness is the perfect start to what I hope (almost against hope it sometimes feels) will be a more peaceful, more compassionate, kinder year altogether. Happy New Year to you, Lynne!

    Lynne, what a beautiful speech! I would definitely nominate you for an Oscar in Creative living! Your artwork is an inspiration to jump into creativity with both feet! (or should I say both hands?! LOL) I love this piece. Catherine’s creative products make it easier for me to create those sweet little dolls that I so enjoy. This 2016 young lady that you have dressed so beautifully is a delight to the eyes. I envy your gorgeous stash of laces! Once again, thanks so much for sharing with us! sharonb xx
