I have blogged about 21 projects TOTAL since the end of July when I started this blog.
But still I have some favorites, some that I'm still in awe that I was the one who came up with the idea. All my life I was told I was 'artistic' but i always felt that I was just good at copying. I can pretty much draw anything I see. But I never felt original. It's amazing how being part of this blogging family (everybody sing! 'We are fam-ily...'), has really helped me blossom creatively. I stink at writing (the word thesis makes me break out in hives) and therefore always hated it but now I LOVE it! Who knew? Even if I still stink at it I'm fine with that because this is me.
Even though there may only be 21 projects, they have meant so much more to me then just a craft project. They have helped me discover my passions, helped me remember that although I love being a mommy and wife, I still need to remember who I was before I took on those roles and nurture that person also.
What I'm trying to say is...thank you. Thank you for all your kind, thoughtful, constructive comments and support. Thank you for all your creative projects, ideas, tips, etc... :-) It has and continues to motivate me and inspire me to create. I am so excited to see where this journey will take me in 2011 and I really hope you will join me!
Okay after all that being said I promised you a top 10 list. So here goes:
#10 Quilted Coasters
Super easy to make Use them every day! Mmmm...coffee.
I have a weakness for vintage sheets and this is a way I can enjoy them every day!
I think this post was more for my pleasure although some of you commented that it was funny. I had a little too much fun creating these scenes. I am a sucker for corny humor....get it corny, cornucopia? Like I said a sucker. Oh and I had fun making the figures too, which btw I promised to make more, it's on my mental to do list.
I love how she turned out but I went through SO many prototypes. It was definitely a learning experience.
I never thought in a million years this would be such a hit. I don't even know how I came up with the idea. It is still my number 1 post of all time....crazy!
This was a lot of fun to make. It was a big hit in blogland and at the party! I have some other ideas brewing that I hope to make a reality this next year.
Another idea that just popped in my head. The results were better then I had imagined.
I have a thing for birds. I big fat love this pillow. I keep it out of reach of sticky kid hands and hairy dogs, 99% of the time. Did I mention I really love this pillow?
This project was surprisingly therapeutic. I thought that I would find it tedious but in fact it was so satisfying to see all that cutting and piecing come together. LOVE.
My latest project and most favorite. It just makes me smile when I look at it. Who knew squeezing tons of scolding hot glue in between pieces of candy could be sooo much fun?
Did I pick any of your favorites? Wish one had been on the top ten that wasn't? I'd love to here your opinions.
Thanks for a great 2010!
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
