Great News!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!
My 1st post for the year 2013....yay!!!
I don't if you noticed I was not around the blogland for last few weeks.
I had rough end to my 2012... my Dad was admitted to the hospital since 17th of Dec...acute case of pneumonia he had his 2nd bypass heart surgery last June, things were more complicated .
Then he came back from the hospital on 29th Dec and flew back home on 30th Dec.
On 31st my driver smashed our car very badly...I was in the front passenger seat and that side is totally destroyed. Thank you God I don't have any major physical injury.
That was the rough end to my 2012.
Again yesterday my Dad was rushed to the hospital here comes the rough start to the 2013 :(

But Craftwise I had a wonderful 2012 and
2013 looks pretty good so far!!!!

In 2012
  • I joined some amazing DT...CAS-ual Fridays, Ribbon Carousel and Sparkle Creations!
  • I designed for some lovely DT as Guest Designer.
  • Won some fabulous challenges... Moxie Fab World, Hero Arts and more.
  • I was the Moxie Fabber of the week..Woot! Woot!!
  • My work was published in 21 issues of different Paper Crafting Magazines....Papercrafts, Cards, Create, Just cards, Scrap& Stamp Arts ...
  • Best part of all I got to be the COVER Girl for Papercrafts Jan-Feb2013 issue.
  • The most Awesome I have few more wonderful bloggy friends whom I absolutely love ...this hobby is amazing it!!
Now the 1st exciting news of 2013...

Wow Piali, what a year.

It is so hard to see family members ill. Hope your dad can kick this pneumonia and get back on his feet. Hope your mom is doing okay. This is so hard on everyone.

Oh, my, back to the States. Wonderful. I am sure it will be hard to leave your parents in India. Hope you have a sibling to help with their care.

Congrats on your fabulous year of crafting. I was going to write and congratulate you on the whole page spread in the Papercraft magazine. You're such a creative person and glad to be able to follow your blog.

Take care and hope all goes smoothly to the move.
