Signing Off, For 2021.

Well, there’s not much of the year left – somehow!

Now, the good news is that despite it getting harder and harder to remain relevant as a creative all-rounder in a shared space like the internet, I am going to give it another go in 2022 and have lots of exciting new content planned.

In order to give myself a good run up to this exciting new chapter, and now that the cardmaking series of blog posts made it to 100, I will be signing off for the remainder of this year.

There will still be a few bits and pieces that I have scheduled pop up but this blog and most of my social media pages, will be going quiet during December.

I hope you will forgive the absence.

You can of course lose yourself for a few hours whenever you like and plunder the archives here for all sorts from me dating back over 5 years to the present day – it’s a goldmine of random nonsense. Here are just a few of the categories and tags features on this site.

Anyhoo, in the meantime, I would like to extend my gratitude for all of the various ways in which you have shown support this year, whether this be signing up for a course, buying an SVG file set or just taking the time to read and comment on whatever random waffle I have been churning out. I really appreciate it and it is the reason I keep going.

Have an awesome festive month, whatever you choose to do – even if it is non-festive, and I will see you all bright and early in the new year!

Much love,
