Here's your chance to take a fond look at what you enjoyed (or didn't ) on this year's forum. Can be a certain StamPea, a thread, challenge, swap or whatever.
Let the reflection begin as we begin to countdown the days & hours for a brand new year!

My absolute fave swap this year has to be 'Pug's Monthly Tags! I got to meet & swap with lots of old & new stampers!
My most recent 'makes-me-laugh' has got to be the "Leon" in the Christmas A-Z thread.
Right up with that 'tickled-me' are StampWily's Bingo games for our parties. The conversations are always a hoot!
And I am so grateful that 2013 saw both old & new StamPeas being so active.
On a somber note, I will miss those StamPeas our forum 'lost' in 2013. But even if they are unable to join us in 2014, I am so glad I got to connect with them however briefly.

Definitely enjoyed the stamp fests. Also the Christmas All Year really helped get that job done in such an enjoyable way!
I appreciated all the challenges and swaps and always enjoy what I try here.

I love the stampfests. For me it works better to have a week or so where I put other things aside and concentrate on stamping and crafting rather than doing ongoing once a month type challenges. Probably has to do with the way I think and work.
I also just love having the gallery full of ideas and just plain fun checking out what others have created. Maybe this is a good place to say how much I appreciate people taking the time and effort to share their work especially when they give some details about the inspiration or construction of the piece.

For me it has to be the tag swap. I don't know why, but I don't get into the challenges much. I do however love doing the tag swaps!
And I liked seeing new techniques discussed. I love learning new techniques!

Hey, does anyone remember when Daniel tried to cancel Winterfest this year? I loved it how everyone was so outraged! That reassured me that everyone loves the fests as much as me!
Also, LeighAnn's tag swaps... Lots of fun.
And I enjoyed the "study" we did on generation stamping.
And it was great to welcome new Stampeas who have become regulars this year... April (Caribbean Girl), Sarah (SarbearSpencer) etc.

Our stamping events, the fun challenges, and the tips and tricks I have learned from you all. Looking forward to the kit swaps for 2014.

I really liked the idea of making cards all year, although that didn't work out so well for me, I do love the idea! I just don't have as much crafty time as I used to!

I love our little forum, and I value the friendships that I have made here. It truly feels like home. I am looking so forward to a great new year with my fellow StamPeas!!

2013 was a wonderful year here on our little forum.
I'm so happy you all have enjoyed the tag swap and look forward to the ones in 2014.
I've learned so much here this past year and have made lots of friends along the way.
We've added lots of new stampers to our little group and it's been great getting to know everyone!
Christinmay, so glad to see a post from you. I hope you are feeling better, I've been worried about you!
We've lost some peas this year, I miss seeing Beadys funny comments and wonderful projects.
I hope those that have went off the grid are doing okay! I miss seeing their posts and projects.
