Looking back 2014 and a farewell

At CraftBarn this week we are looking back at our favourite projects of the year. I love most of the  projects I made, so very hard to choose, and also because I decided to have a break from the Design Team. So it's a bit sad after 3 years and a half, but I have to focus more on me and my career as a creative. I really thank all the staff in the shop and all the talented members of the team, present and past. It was a wonderful experience, and I learned so much!
Questa settimana su CraftBarn scegliamo i nostri pezzi preferiti dell'anno passato. Ed è arrivato per me il momento di prendermi una pausa da questo meraviglioso Design Team, che mi ha dato tantissimo in questi 3 anni e mezzo (!!!). E' stata un'esperienza magnifica e ringrazio veramente tantissimo Sandy, lo staff e tutti i talentuosi colleghi del DT.
My fave projects in no particulare order:
Allora i miei progetti preferiti dell'anno sono stati:
The Alice in Wonderland ATB:
L'ArtistTrading Block tema Alice
One of many project where I upcycled something, here a cereal box has became a mini drawer
Uno dei tanti progetti riciclosi e più fortunati, la mini cassettiera dalla scatola dei Kellogs
And all my giant ArtJuornal for the Q&L challenge, I really enjoyed!
Ed il mio gigantesco ArtJournal, per la sfida Q&L, insomma grande e' bello!
Spero sia stato anche per voi un anno pieno di creativita'!

Oh no! I'm so sorry we won't be seeing you at The Craft Barn any more. You have made me see things differently and how even the ugliest most mundane item can be made beautiful. I will have to settle with following your blog. All the best with your next creative projects xxx

It is always sad to say goodbye to a DT but with you creating your own stamps and stencils, I can understand why you needed to make this break. 2015, I am sure, will be the most amazing, creative year for you yet.
Love this look back at your favourite creations for them.
Wishes
Lynne

All the same good wishes from me Gio... As you know I'm a great admirer of your Art, always stunning and amazing, even brilliant regarding e.g. your fabulous AJ book made based on the Craft Barn challenges... I would have been unable to be so creative, with new things to show very different each time, always made with heart and your personnal feelings.. just based on this 'quotes' subject! And I even don't speak of all these fabulous things you have so beautifully recycled!!! So go ahead, fingers crossed for the following Gio, you're a great and adorable Artist! Big hugs, Coco

Difficile scelta, i progetti che ho ammirato nel corso del 2014 sono tutti ricchissimi di dettagli e abbinamenti sorprendenti, penso che tu possa essere molto mooooooolto soddisfatta dell'anno creativo che sta finendo!
Per il resto... ALL THE BEST con tutto il cuore e, come si dice dalle mie parti, "porte che si chiudono (o che chiudiamo) portoni che si aprono"!! Un abbraccio di ammirazione

Oh, my goodness - they will certainly miss you! But I know you'll have lots of new adventures ahead. Amazing to see these wonderful creations again - impossible to pick a favourite!!

Now I'm even sadder that I couldn't get to the Extravaganza to see you last time....
