Out with the old and in with the new!

Hello everyone, welcome and I am so happy to see you here.

With this post I want to wish you all the most wonderful, prosperous, creative, happy and peaceful New Year. Seeing the world did not end on the 21st of December, but as some people say it is actually the beginning of a new era of time starting, full of new and creative and spiritual possibilities, I can't wait for the new year to begin! My word for the year is Possibility. Possibility to grow, to imagine, to be, to become etc. etc. Would love to know what your word is!!!
All right, I'll end this post with showing you my 12 favourite pieces from 2012:

Possibility sounds positively a fabulous word to me. Just put my thinking hat on Astrid to decide what word I would love to begin my New Year with.

Adore what you have chosen for your 12 faves and I would be a happy bunny if I can make just one of these stunners in 2013.

Speak soon.

Hugs Shirley x x

Completely breathtaking work from your year... came over from AS to say how much I loved your tagbook there, to be met with all these glories! Possibility is a brilliant word - am I allowed it too?! Though probably mine is Change, I think - continuing from this year...
Wishing you a wonderful 2013!

Wonderful and so gorgeous pieces Astrid!
And a lovely idea to post favorite creations...a little bit too late for me now, as I posted enough today I think :-)
But maybe in the start of the new year...
I wish you and your family a very happy and wonderful new year, filled with creative blessings.

I'm always amazed at your beautiful creations.. they are truly stunning pieces of art. A very creative year. I'm so glad I found your blog, about 5 months or so ago... I always look forward to see what you've posted. A happy and fulfilling 2013.

It doesn't matter how many times I see your gorgeous work, I always find something new to admire and wonder how I missed it the first time. You are a truly talented lady and one I admire greatly... one of your biggest FANS... LOL
May all your dreams come true for 2013 Astrid....

WAUW what an awesome load of stunning creations here again Astrid. I´m so glad, I found your site here this year and I can´t wait to see, what you´ll inspire us with this year, but I´m sure, it´ll be awesome.
My word this year is definitely: DARE.
DARE to dream, DARE to try, DARE to just do whatever I want and go for it and DARE to believe. There´s sooo many ways that word will be perfect for me, so it´ll definitely be it this year.
Happy New Year Astrid, may it be the best year ever.

Astrid, I apologize for not visiting your blog more frequently. I am definitely the loser! Your work is breathtaking. There's no other word for it. Coming here is like entering another world.
I hope you've had a peaceful Christmas season and I trust 2013 will be a great year for you. (At least the world didn't end on December 21!)

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
