2012 Favorites

This has been a busy year for me–there are still some projects (some of my favorites!) that need to be wrapped up on here, like the buffet and the bathroom–but many completed that I wanted to look back on.  Here are my Favorites (and some of yours) from the past year.

The most popular post (thanks in part to a few features) on the blog is one of my favorites too:

And actually, everything else was a crafty paper thing too.

First up is my favorite (but according to WordPress’ year end review, no one else’s):

Finished Product

My birthday present to myself, made by a forced labor birthday ice cream social (but painstakingly cut and assembled by me)

Many of my projects were gifts, and two of my favorites were for a close friend’s new baby girl:

Made with both parent's favorite childhood books

This banner hung in their living room for three months before moving to the baby's room. So glad they loved it!

The Mother’s Day present I made was one of my first posts, and still looks great on my mom’s hallway picture ledges.

Made of a zillion cut and folded paper hearts.

And an idea everyone should steal (for thermostats, alarm panels and door buzzers like mine): The canvas to cover an eyesore. Dots optional.

The canvas panel just has punched paper dots glued to it and covers the buzzer. No one even knows its there!

I was a little surprised at the prevalence of paper, especially since I DO write about other stuff. And although one of my first posts was about cards, I never post them (something I plan to remedy right away–I love making cards and make tons of them!)

Did you do a Favorites post? I love these, especially for blogs I’m new too–link yours up in the comments so I can see what yours are!
