Seasons Giving Blog Hop Year 7!


Hello friends!
Welcome to the 2019 Seasons Givings Blog Hop!
Can you believe this is the 7th year we are doing this?!

Thank you so much to all of the loyal blog readers who support me, as well as the companies that I work for. I love the card making/paper craft community. We all love to make cards, that will make someones day. There truly is no selfless act like sending handmade happiness in the mail to someone.

I cannot believe that 2018 is already over. I felt every single minute of my age this year. I saw more wrinkles, more grey hair, more weight...but with all of those negative things in the back of my mind. I have never been happier in my life, my marriage, being a mother and a friend. With age comes wisdom, and I truly never realized that until this year. I do not sweat the small things anymore, I am prayerfully grateful for my health, my family and friends. There is a lot that I keep private from readers and on social media. I think keeping good deeds close to my heart and not sharing them, keeps me humble. One of the most soul fulfilling things I do, is help people. I help strangers and friends/family because its a calling. This year I had a lot of heart to heart talks with God. What I want to leave you with is this. If you feel pulled to do something for someone, but you keep talking yourself out of it. Stop. Do the good deed. It will make your cup overflow. With that said, I hope 2019 brings you so much happiness that you feel like you are magic. Love you all!

Today I am giving away...

$30 
Gift Certificate to Lawn Fawn

This is my first time ever following along in the Season’s Givings Blog Hop! I’m excited to meet some new crafty friends and maybe learn something new in 2019! Thanks so much for sharing your heart! My favorite memory of 2018? That’s a tough one as I have so many great ones. I guess the best one is hearing my sweet grandchildren squeal “Nana” every time they see me or hear my voice on their mommy’s phone!

Janet Robson said...

Morning and a Happy New Year. My favorite memory has to be seeing my daughter for the first time in many months when I visited her at varsity. I miss her so much my heart aches.

Marsha said...

Thank you for your beautiful post and words from your heart. One of my favorite memories for 2018 was the weekend that all my children,their spouses, and all my grandchildren were with us to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

Billie A said...

Happy New Year.. I am so grateful for 2018 and my favorite memory is getting to see my grandchildren since they live out of state. Being able to visit my daughter and just being with family.. I know 2019 will be a blessed year and hope yours is too.

Ccarlene said...

Happy 2019! I have so much to be thankful and happy about in 2018. One of the highlights was turning 50 and surrounded by the love of family and friends. I look forward to the next 50 with enthusiasm and I hope to make a positive difference in the life of others

SusieScrapper said...

Happy New Year! My favorite memory from 2018 would probably be when we went to visit our grandsons in Michigan. We only get to see them once a year, so it’s very special. We all did a lot of fishing and went out with the in-laws on their pontoon boat. Just spending time with them is special. I’m also a California girl, lived in Northern California most of my life.

HeatherB said...

Thank you for organizing the hop! My favorite 2018 memory was this past summer. We bought our first travel trailer and seeing the looks on my kids faces as we enjoy the outdoors together as a family. I can't wait to start planning this summer's adventures!

Autumn Crain said...

Love blog hops!! My favorite memory of 2018 was when I found my brother (he’s blind & mentally challenged) who was missing for about 20yrs!! Long story short, my dad took him to get away from our mom. My dad got deathly sick & brother was put in a care home. My dad left my sister has his last of kin, which then led us right to our brother. It’s been about 8-9 months now!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Georgiana said...

My favorite 2018 memory is when my son bought his first home all on his own and moved in. That did give me a craft room, but him being independent and successful were a much greater reward. Thank you for organizing this hop so many years ago and continuing the tradition. Happy New Year.

Hanne xo said...

Happy New Year. The best memory of 2018 was the birth of my grandsons. They are twins and I am so gratefull that they are healthy.

Paula Ganyard said...

My favorite memory from 2018 was celebrating a milestone birthday in Cabo San Lucas and having Happy Birthday sculpted in the sand in front of our condo. Everyone in the resort knew it was my bday after that! I then turned three shells from that trip into a snowman Christmas card to send to the person that arranged that surprise for me.

Nancy Bogart said...

My favorite memory of 2018 was spending my birthday (biggie) in Europe with my family!

lmiceli05 said...

So generous of you...and you're right about this card making/paper crafting community. We enjoy what we so but it makes someone's day to receive a handmade card. I don't have one single memory that stands out....just being able to spend time with my 90 year old father is priceless to me.

~amy~ said...

Latisha, thanks for all your work behind the hop. I super appreciate your time + patience. I'm such a fan of your work and style.

Favorite memory of 2018? I have many but getting married in August was the best.

Teresa Doyle said...

Happy New Year Latisha.

Happy New Year, My favorite memory of 2018 was two different trips one to Georgia and another one to Georgetown Washington DC.

Lisa Byers said...

Thank you so much for organizing this hop!! Hops are so much fun!! I think my favorite memory is Easter. I had my sons and their families here. We always have a big egg hunt in our yard. My grandson and granddaughter are both 5 and it is hilarious watching those two running around searching for those colorful eggs!! One could be right in front of them and they look all around it and we are all yelling "look down" and they will look up every time!! They get so excited!! Then we blow bubbles and it is always a little breezy and those two will run after them. We all sit outside and just be together as a family.

Karen Ondes said...

First time visiting your site, beautiful. Our favorite memories are family camping!

Karen Prewitt said...

My favorite memory of 2018 is riding with husband. There is nothing better then being on a back road on the motorcycles.

I had a few favorite memories last!

Nandini said...

This is my third year following the Season's Givings blog hop. I have enjoyed every year, always getting inspired and discovering new crafters and stamp companies. So a big Thank You for putting it together! 2018 has been a rather rough year. But my favourite memory is opening my email and reading the mail from Altenew informing me that I have cleared Level 2 of Altenew Educator Certification Program. I have been doing the necessary classes and challenges over the last year and it feels great to have reached this level. I am looking forward to completing this program in 2019!

lynda said...

I loved reading your heartfelt post today, Latisha. I agree that it's the little things we do for others that brings us the most blessings. The things that no one sees or knows, but in our hearts we feel that special warmth that sharing our gifts and talents, time, and resources brings. God bless you for sharing, and may you some day hear "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Susie Sonnier said...

Time with my daughter!!! Happy New Year and cheers to a new year of crafting!!

Happy New Year to you and thank you for all our hard work organizing this hop and for a chance to win such great prizes!
I live on a small farm and keep chickens. My favourite memory from 2018 was having one of my hens hatch out some chicks. One of them was attacked by the other hens and I ended up hand rearing her in the house. I became her mommy and although she is now an adult bird the bond is still there. Cheers.

My favorite memory from 2018 is the visitors we had this summer...our daughter and her family and my niece and her son arrived at our home for back to back visits. Crazy but FUN tines

I got to take my sister on her first ever trip to Chicago ... we spoiled ourselves at The Langham and experienced everything on her wish list including taking a run around Navy Pier ... her laughter and smiles still light-up my days.

My favorite memory of 2018 was finally being able to craft again after some medical issues. It may not be perfect but I can at least pull off and put on the cap of a Copic marker.

Elaine R said...

Hmm... my favourite memory of 2018... that’s tough, because I’m thankful to be able to say I had a lot of wonderful memories. Maybe because this one just happened, we opted to forgo the winter Classic hockey game to spend time with my mom (who is battling cancer) and my dad who is battling aging. We took them for dinner and to the casino, and my mom called me after we dropped them off and said “thank you, we wouldn’t have done anything if you hadn’t taken us out” I could hear the happiness in her voice! Plus, even though the rest of us lost :( she won so it was worth it!!!!

kReN K said...

My favorite memory of 2018 was the moment I found out that my 3 month old grandson made it out of heart surgery with no complications. His heart defect was found when his mom was pregnant, and now, a 11 months after surgery, he is healthy and happy. We sure counted our blessings that day.

Seven years? Amazing! I know I've participated in at least the last 4. Thank you so much for all the work behind the scenes in organizing this fun event! 2018 was a rough one... first fav memory was in March when my 3 month migraine finally broke! What a relief!! Gave me MUCH more sympathy for a friend who's had chronic daily migraines her whole life. First favorite crafting memory was at the family reunion... I was able to put together a make-n-take for the first time and they loved it! Seeing the joy on their faces as they created, some for the first time, was a treat! Have a wonderful and crafty year!!

Peggy McCullar said...

Natalie Winterstein said...

Thanks so much for starting this amazing blog hop! I love it. My favorite memory from 2018 is a little crazy because I was actually pretty sick with a cold but I got offered free tickets to a University of Nebraska football game (which NEVER happens!) and my brother and I went and had the most fun I've ever had at a game! It was FREEZING but we were super bundled up, our team won and it started snowing...it was just magical! I am so glad I went and just had such a fun time!

Thanks for organizing the hop. I saw all the same things as you: wrinkles, gray hair, and weight gain. But over all it was a pretty good year. Not one favorite memory, but lots of wonderful milestones for me and my family.

Jingle said...

Happy New Year, Latisha! I am so glad you are still running this. I know it is a ton of work and you always make it awesome. This year... it is lifting my spirits quite a lot and I just wanted to thank you for that! My favorite memory from 2018 was a drive home from a very important appointment that just so happened to coincide with an important game in the World Series. That day, double rainbows fell over Boston and it was absolutely GORGEOUS. It fit our mood and our important appointment perfectly AND then the Red Sox went on to not only win that game, but also the Series. It was a perfect day.

Sundaystamper said...

My favorite memory is from Christmas watching my 38 year old son with Down Syndrome sing the “Finger Family” song to my 3 year old granddaughter and watch her laugh and enjoy her Uncle.

Latisha, I love your perspective on life! I'm almost there too, at an older age with a few gray hairs and wisdom knowing the important things now. It's a blessing to be in this stage of life! My favorite memory of 2018 is the memorial service held for my husband's grandmother who passed at age 96. She was a remarkable person and a beautiful artist that watercolored and taught classes until age 93! Wow, I hope to be more like her when I retire. ; )

Thanks!

Nox said...

Oh my - one favourite memory??? So hard to pick one! Maybe one of my favourites was a cold frosty walk with the dog, when visiting my parents, in the last new year. It was the first time I spent some significant time with my nephew's new bride, and she, my sister, myself, my dog, and my nephew all went for a walk. It was cold, but beautiful, and it was a lovely, thoughtful conversation. It made me happy to know she and my nephew are so good together. Also, that she loves dogs.

D Golly said...

My favorite moment was watching my daughter graduate. She worked so hard and I was so proud of her.

tndj said...

My favorite memory was Thanksgiving. Both of my children, 5 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren were all able to make it to my son's house to celebrate Thanksgiving. With children and grandchildren living in different cities and state - it is hard for all to get together what with school, school events, work etc. It was nice that they could all make it. It was nice to travel to my son's and have them all there. Love it. Great memories were made.

Kathy Barrett said...

My favorite memory is visiting my family in a Florida & meeting my new great nephew! Also my daughter graduating from college with her Bachelors Degree!

So many milestones every year with our grandchildren. Just thinking about them makes me smile! They're so cute and say the funniest things! I'm so thankful they all live close so we make a lot of memories...birthday parties and they come make cards with me a lot too. Bummer I can't narrow it down though! Cuz I want to win! lol Thanks for the chance and wow, organizing this big a hop has to be a big deal and time consuming! TY!

Alma Dirpaul said...

My favorite memory is my son’s convocation

Happy Dance said...

This is such a wonderful hop; thank you so much for doing this! My favorite memory is from August. Our two youngest sons came home with their seven little children, and we spent a long weekend doing our own version of "The Great British Baking Show." Our daughter and her family, plus the adults here were the judges, and the kids were marvelous!! Flour and sugar, frosting and dough painted the kitchen, and it was delightful and delicious. We plan to do it again this year. Perhaps tied for this memory as favorite, is getting to spend a week with three other cardmaking friends at a Lake House. Life is good. Blessings to you and your family in 2019. Bev

Thank you for the blog hop, the amazing prize and your beautiful words. And it is so true that with age comes wisdom. I now know what is truly important in life, not the silly little things I sweated over as a younger version of myself. My favorite memory of 2018 is the fact that I was baptized (I'm a late bloomer). Happy New Year.

Melissa said...

Thank you for this fun giveaway!
My most memorable and hardest thing to do was taking my girl to college. God is good and it has been a rewarding experience for us both

My favorite memory this year had to be when my youngest daughter got married and announced later that they were expecting their first child. Looking to 2019 for the upcoming baby.

Cynthia L said...

Favorite memory this year was a grand reunion with my family. It had been 11 years since we were all together at the same place at the same time. Where does the time go? It gave us all great memories, and a great set of pages in my scrapbook!

Cathy Lillie said...

It's hard to believe that a year has passed since I came across this blog hop for the first time. I've been paper crafting for over a year and a half now and have learned about and from so many different bloggers and companies. Thank you for all you do and the encouraging words for the new year! My favorite memory of 2018 was seeing my daughter in August. It had been almost a year because we live so far apart! There's nothing better for me than seeing my baby (she's 28)! Thanks for organizing this hop and for the generous giveaway. Have a fabulous 2019!

Thank you for participating in this awesome hop.
My favourite memory of 2018 was a trip to Newfoundland ( an eastern island province in Canada) It is breathtakingly beautiful, the people are generous and take proud of their places and the fish is wonderful. This is a place for everyone's bucket list!

My favorite moment of 2018 is hearing the doctors successfully removed one golf ball sized polyp and another hiding behind it from my husbands stomach. Then they told us it wasn't cancerous. We discovered it when he hemoraged almost half of the blood in his body. Best day ever.

Andrea Hastilow said...

Happy New Year! Thank you for being the organiser of this hop which is how I first met you this time last year. I've had an aweful unhealthy 2018 & have been very ill unfortunately so I'm with you on not sweating the little things anymore. My favourite memory from the past year must be meeting the gorgeous prem daughter of my nephew after she wowed Drs by pulling through. To cuddle her was a miracle, she's our miracle. Thank you for putting together another year's hop.

My favorite 2018 memory is teaching my 4 year old granddaughter to swim. She was so proud of herself, it was wonderful being a part of that milestone for her.

Wilma Davenport said...

My goodness, my favorite 2018 memory would probably be the day we received the keys to our "forever home." After 37+ years as a military family. It was great to build and move into our forever home.

Happy New Year!!! My favorite memory from 2018 was taking a trip with my College friends and their families. It has become a new annual tradition for us and it's really more about making time for each other and showing how much we care even as we all lead busy and stressful lives. This has also lead to sharing more handmade happiness the past holiday season.

This is my first time seeing this hop and giveaways - how amazing! My best memories from 2018 are pretty simple - time spent with my sons, laughing and telling stories. They're in their 20's now, so time spent bonding isn't as frequent as when they were younger. I cherish every moment!

I don't think I have one particular memory that stands out in 2018, sad to say. I have enjoyed all the weekends my hubby and I got to stay at his brother's place to help renovate his bathrooms in his new house, which happens to be 20 minutes away from Gettysburg. Our favorite place. :)

My best moment of the year was celebrating my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday. We got together in the country to celebrate a wonderful lady with a touching family party. We showered her with love, and presented her with a thoughtful frame of the 75 things we love about her. And a beautiful and delicious cake in the shape of a 75 that I baked and garnished with handmade macarons and meringues and fresh blossoms and berries. It took me days, but it was a work of love. She was overwhelmed by happiness.
