In the land of craft blogging, it seems to be popular this week to recap 2011. I am pretty excited with what I got done in 2011 and look forward to 2012.
Here are some of my favorite projects from the last year!
This project was one of my favorite for several reasons. I love chevron designs and couldn't want to incorporate them into my house. I also was excited to give my great-grandmother's bookcase a face lift.
This was the second most popular post of 2011. I'm excited to tell you that the while the colors as faded, the solar lights are still going strong.
This was my first attempt at making clothes and it didn't turn out too terribly. I just wish she could wear it year round!
Believe it or not, this post was the most popular of 2011 with over 4,000 views on the blog and another couple thousand on Scribd and a couple more thousand on Flickr. Being featured on One Pretty Thing didn't hurt either.
This was a recent project I did with my craft club and apparently it must also be pretty popular. I'm still looking for the perfect place to hang my ode to South Dakota!
I love refinishing furniture and I was extra excited this project was so fast and cheap. Plus, it's a sure lot better than the card table I had!
Of course I love these projects because I've been oogling the Silhouette for a year!
I finally got a new tree and some burlap garland. I loved the garland and will be using it again next year!
After planning the project since July, I finally got to put them up this December. My mother-in-law is just happy that I don't have fabric remnants nailed to the windows anymore!
Pinterest has created a few obsessions for me: burlap, blue Bell mason jars, bunk beds and wreaths.
