My Ten Favorite Projects of 2011...

While I've been a little out of the loop the last couple of weeks (where do bloggers find the time and energy to blog over the holidays????), I did do enough blogging in 2011 to be able to pick ten of my favorite posts.

It's kind of nice to see them here all in one place.  It gives me a little sense of accomplishment.

So...without further ado...here are my faves of the past year:


{oooh...I almost forgot about that mercury glass vase...I'll have to get that out!}



I really love the distressing on this lamp.  And the soft light it adds to our living room.  One of my all-time faves.



I see a blue theme developing here...



Love love love this chalkboard.  And...sold it at my office craft fair in December.  But fear not!  I have another frame just like it.  Just need to paint it.  Add it to my list of things to do...



So much easier than I thought it would be.  If you need a cake to take to a party...this one is a hit!



I've never really been in to redecorating my mantel (or the rest of my house, for that matter) with the seasons.  But I had so much fun with Halloween decorations that I think I'm hooked!



I made about 20 of these before my office craft fair.  Sold a few at the fair, and gave most of the rest away for Christmas.  Love these clutches!  So versatile...and they make a wonderful present!



I did not sell this at the craft fair, so it's hanging in my bedroom, and I'm using it to hang jewelry.  I just love the way it looks and it's so practical.  A friend at work ordered two more as gifts!



This is such a simple craft, but I really really love it.  The glitter star really makes the tree.





This is my all time most favorite furniture project (and of course the one that I see every day, since it's under my TV!) and also one of my most viewed / commented on posts.


So...what were your favorite things of 2011?
