My 2014 Favorite Creations and My Craft Spot Closing

Happy New Year, my sweet friends! I pray you all have a blessed year of sparkling love and joy. :o) I was away for the holiday season to spend time with family and rest my healing arm, and am happy to be back to light crafting. :o)

Before I share my favorite creations from 2014 for a fun linky party, I have some sad news. Unfortunately, My Craft Spot is soon closing. :( Kimberly is the sweetest store owner I've ever had the privilege to know. Being on her Design Team has been a dream come true and I'm still stunned at its unexpected ending. I'm so thankful that Kimberly wanted me on her team and I will cherish every memory made... and will forever use her beautiful products.

Kimberly is having a huge sale before closing, so grab what you can before they are gone for good. Many things have sold out, but there are still a lot of fabulous products available at excellent prices! (You must enter through the links below to activate sale prices!)

Now for some crafty reminiscing! The lovely Debby is hosting a linky where everyone shares their favorite 2014 creations! Oodles of fun, right?! :o)

One reason I'm putting both of these things in one post is because most of my favorite projects used My Craft Spot goodies. Being on her team was a highlight of my year and I think that was portrayed in my work for her... so I'm including my favorites in this post to fill it with the warm fuzzies Kimberly's products inspired. :o)

I've opted to put my selections in two categories: my five favorite cards and 3D projects. Click on the title to visit the project posts for details. :o)

My Favorite 3D Projects:

1. Sliding Recipe Box

2. Christmas Tussie Mussie

3. Double Sliding Lid Box

4. Easter Box

5. Birthday Wand Centerpiece

My Favorite Cards:

1. Christmas in the Heart

2. God's Timing

3. With Love

4. Sweet Sailboat

5. O Holy Night
