The Stampman's hopping all over the world!

Another year upon us and no sooner have we shrugged off the Christmas spirit than we are back at it for yet more spirit! Or should that be spirits?
I havn't been able to have a drink over Christmas cos of having a tummy bug but I do intend to sit down on New Years Eve and enjoy a lovely bottle of wine with Liam and Fizz whilst pretending to enjoy some excruciating film they have chosen to have a film nght with. I quite often do this with the laptop on my knee and remain just concious enough of the TV to be able to discuss the plot briefly when I have to.

This year I'm going to be hopping about from blog to blog looking at everyone's fave project of the year. There is a fantastic prize of ----for some lucky hopper and to take part all you have to do is to follow the instructions on The Stampman Blog, starting there and following the hops, collecting letters as you go. Post your favorite project of the year and then work out the anagram with the letters you have.

If you are hopping already you should have come from


my letter is

and now you need to visit

And so to my favorite project thus year, I think it just has to be this one














The Chinese Haiku set which was featured in the the Craft Stamper. It was one of the first ATC's I had ever made and the first time my work had been published. It also marked the beginning of a friendship and lovely working relationship with Mr & Mrs Stampman, Jill and Ian, which has gone from strength to strength throughout this amazing year.

I'm looking forward to seeing your fave pieces and hope you will join on the fun.

Here's wishing you all special moments in time, with all
you would wish for yourself in the coming year. Treasure the moments of joy and each moment of
love, They are what makes life good.

So many thanks for your support this year,
your comments have made my special moments happen so many times.
Happy Crafting
Much Love
x Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I always have to have my laptop on my knee while movies are on, I can't just sit and watch one and do nothing else unless I am at the cinema!
Your ATC's are lovely, lots of detail. I love how it has a lot of memories for you :)

This looks awesome, but I can not figure out how it looks like a box in the beginning? and it looks sooo much bigger than an ATC (I make a lot of them)
