The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: All Papers Mailed!

Hey folks! Given that it is the end of February, I would hope to heck this would be done already and thankfully I can say it has been. I actually wanted to post this and let everyone know a few weeks ago when I mailed out the last of the papers for The 12 Days of Christmas but unfortunately I ended up getting a bad virus that set me back a bit, not allowing me to publish this post until now.

Here are the stats for this past year:
  • a total of 15 people participated during at least two days of the event.
  • 9 people completed all 12 Days of the quest.
  • 2 people came in just under and completed 11 Days.
  • 1 person got the first 8 days done.
  • 1 person got 6 days finished.
  • 2 people got four of the days complete.
  • 1 person got 2 days completed.

Thanks for letting me know about one of your favourite designers. There were a couple stores that a haven't been to in quite a while and there were a few that I had never heard of before! I now have some new places to check out!

As far as the set goes, here is the preview for it which I've also added to my designs preview page (along with some other Christmas sets as I haven't updated it since my hiatus starting in April)...

If you didn't get the chance to join in the quest but happen to be interested in purchasing this set, just leave a comment to let me know and I'll get it uploaded to the Scribbles Designs Store.

If it happens that you participated during any of the days but have yet to receive your papers, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know and I'll resend them.

The Christmas Quest is finished for another year. For those of you who participated, I truly hope that you enjoyed yourself and I hope to see you again next year. For those of you who weren't able to join in, I hope that you will be able to find the time to do so next year. The quest always runs to about the middle of Jan to ensure that everyone has time to complete it. However, if there are some people out there that would like to see it extended for an additional week to help give them the time to participate, then let me know and I'll consider it.

It was my hope to get back on track with my regular holiday freebies but due to being sick during Valentine's week, I wasn't able to. I am hoping that I can still manage to make a love themed paper but it obviously won't be until March now.

Well my friends, I hope that you are doing well and avoiding all the viruses out there. If you live in the northern hemisphere, I hope that you are staying warm as well.

I'll be back on Friday with my latest Pattie's Creation project so I'll see you again then!

Until next time,
