Here at Anything But Cute we love to see all the seasoned and expert mixed media artists, but we also want to encourage those who are just getting their feet wet. Our design team will always be on the lookout for these exceptional artists, and you just never know when we might be giving out something special to a talented mixed media newcomer.
Make sure to put 'newbie' after your name in the linky so we know who you are.

Happy New Year & Farewell

It is a sad post I write today, as it will be the last one here at Anything But Cute. It was a very difficult decision for me to make, but life has taken some turns and it's time for me to focus my attention elsewhere.

I am so grateful to each and every one of you for all of your support over the last year and a half. This blog has been one of my favourite crafting experiences and I am honoured to have met so many wonderful and talented artists through those linky thumbnails!!

A special thank you to the ladies who made this challenge amazing, my design team! I have made such wonderful friends and I will always cherish our time together here. Please take a minute to visit all these ladies and follow them on their personal blogs.

From the entire team here at Anything But Cute, we wish you all a very Happy New Year. May this upcoming year bring you joy and happiness with all that you do!!

Take care, and I will see out there in blogland!
Don't be strangers.
Hugs, Pamellia :)

  8. /7888888888888Thank you to all of you who have commented here every month, to those who visit without comments and to each and everyone one of you who have participated in our challenges.

  9. Very very very sad. Wishing you all the best. Xj.

  10. Thank you so much to the DT for all your hard work and inspiration. I will miss this Challenge Blog. I'll see you all in Blogland.

  11. Thanks, ABC, for the inspiration. You guys comprise one of the most talented DTs in this corner of Blogland. I know I'll "see" a few of you around... Happy 2017.

  12. Oh, that is a sad news... But this is how life works as the poet once said:
    "Every beginning
    is only a sequel, after all,
    and the book of events
    is always open halfway through."
    Take care Pamellia!

  13. Wishing you all the best. Thanks for the opportunity to be here at the start. I know how life does take different turns but change is also a good thing. I don't know who made this quote originally but I heard it at a conference - "A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn."

  14. So very sad and gut wrenching to see the close of this wonderful blog. I absolutely love this team and everyone that came for a visit or a peek. Ladies of the DT, I will miss you all and even though we will "see" each other in blogland this is still a hard transition. Loves and Hugz dearies! ~Niki
