Top Projects from 2011

I can't believe it's nearly been a year since I started blogging.  It's been a wonderful year, full of new friendships, lots of great projects, inspiration, and encouragement!  Today I'm going to share the 10 most popular projects from my blog in 2011.

The personality-packed photo cards I made to hand out to family and friends was a huge hit, both here on the blog, and with the recipients.  I'm so glad to have these "bookmarks" into my children's lives for this age, I think I'll be doing this annually.

I whipped up this super simple tank for my girlie early last spring, and it was perfect for summer.  The Pleated Ruffle Tank makes for a great beginner project!

Oh this girl, in this dress....gracious, she makes me melt!  This was an absolute favorite project for me, and while it was a little time consuming, it was not difficult at all.  

Some of the projects on the "most viewed" list surprised me, and this was one of them.  It's nothing fancy, but I suppose it's quite necessary to keep those little piggies in place!  

I think this was my first post that was featured on another blog, and I nearly peed myself when I saw it listed among a handful of other features over at Petite Hermine's link party.  If you're searching for an elegant necklace that makes a bit of a statement, this is it.

This is another post on the list that surprised me, since I only shared it in November.  I will never underestimate the love of chocolate again!

I really enjoyed putting this vase together, it was so easy, but made a huge statement in a Christmas display.  

Oh how I loved this beautiful garland of wax dipped leaves strung across our living room window!  I will certainly do this again next year.

My mom's broken clock turned welcome sign was a really fun project for me.  I loved thinking up all the different phrases to welcome guests to our home, and it was really fun playing around with all the different fonts to create the perfect entryway statement for our home.

And the top visited post on my site for the year 2011 was my Turquoise Painted Dresser.  I'm still thrilled with the outcome of my dresser, the branches were such a fun challenge! 

Thank you all so much for helping form this list by visiting, pinning, commenting and encouraging, I so deeply appreciate it!  I am already looking forward to what 2012 will bring and what kind of inspiration will strike!  

Happy New Year and be blessed,

I'll be linking up to a few of these fine parties:
