December 2014 Challenge Winner

Hi everyone, Leandra here

Wow, what a great month, what a great semester, and what a fantastic YEAR!.

As Darcy highlighted last night, so many superb things were presented in the final semester of this year.

Suffice to say, we would like to extend a massive thank you to all our Signature Stamp Designers, Our wonderful blog Guests who have featured every semester, our random one-off people who have posted here and there (such amazing eye candy-treats), and our #3UP contributors who have shared their ideas throughout the year. It has been a very busy year with post going up almost every night. 

Of course, I cannot thank Darcy and Gillian enough for their magnificent administrative work they do, juggling the content, designers and so forth. I think we have only had a few hiccups this year, which is pretty amazing! The time it takes to get content ready, edit, make sure photos are the right size , check links are correct, prize draws and so forth...let alone the planning, approaching people, managing the calendar, Twitter, facebook relationships....when you add it all up, it is a very time consuming process. I prevaricate all they do so VERY, VERY much!

The highlight for me is when we get to meet up with blog and twitter followers at shows around the UK and beyond. There is nothing like putting the face to the name, and this year in particular, our collective relationships off line have deepened among twitter, facebook and blog followers, with PaperArtsy being the interest we all have in common. This is awesome. you guys are the best, and its so nice that what we do for 'work' has generated a wide circle of very lovely, supportive friends.

Next year we have decided after 3 years of this past format it is time for a massive change to the format, line up, challenges and more.

The new format will launch on Sunday Jan 4th, and as you will see, all will be revealed in due course. I'll see you back here then, but for now, I'll hand over to Darcy with the challenge winner info....

Wishing you all a very wonderful New Year!
