A nostalgic look back.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am so sorry that I have been missing, I have had a bad back since New Years Eve on and off and now it is better my mojo has disappeared.
Anyhoo my little old blog is now over 6 years old.
I started blogging way back on the 14th November 2009.
So for a little fun and to get something at least showing on my blog, I`ve had a little nostalgic look back through my blog stats  and I`m going to share with you the 2 most viewed cards from 2010 to 2014.
We already seen 2015`s so I`ve left them out.
Its good to see that it looks like my crafting has progressed since my earlier days although I do feel that some of my best cards were made in 2014 .
I hopefully will get a renewed zest to craft when I get home from work tonight but in the mean time here are some real oldies from 2010 - 2014.


These photo`s were from when I used my phone
I think we can safely say my photo`s have improved with the years.





and lets have a look at my very first blogged card.

Thanks for joining me in my trip down memory lane.
Hoping to be back with a new creation soon.
Hugs Nic.

A fabulous look back over the past few years Nic, showing your progression in your craft. Loved seeing them and hope Mr Mojo pays a visit this evening too.

Hi Nic, I've really enjoyed reading through this post and looking at the cards that you've made over the years, they're fabulous. Sorry to hear about your back and your mojo but I'm sure it will be back before you know it. We all get these blocks from time to time, then it's really exciting when the crafting urge eventually returns. I find it helps to start sorting through things, then I decide that it's more fun playing with stamps than tidying them up! ;) Hope you're back with us again soon X

Aww Nic, what a line up hun! It's clear you hit your stride early on and have just got better and better. Love them all, and how nice to take a stroll through memory lane with you. Fancy doing an easel card for your first one! Mine was very plain and simple! You're an inspiration hun, hope you find your mojo again soon. Hugs, Wends x

Hope your back is better soon and your mojo returns. Lovely to look back and what gorgeous amkes. I can honestly say you have progressed a very long way since that first card. Your colouring looks rather like my first ones, one colour per item, no shading and therefore rather flat. Gorgeous colouring on the later cards and so much more professional. Good to look back and see how we progress xx

A very varied and gorgeous mix coops, but I think my favourite would be the gorgeous flowers in 2013 :o)

Hi Nic, hope your back gets back to normal and I'm sure your mojo will not have strayed far. In the meantime, its lovely to share your walk down memory lane. I would be mortified to view some of my earliest cards but yours look well on track. Terrific makes all. Enjoy your weekend. Nicola x
