Best of 2012

Sunday, January 27, 2013





Well, I've been procrastinating AGAIN, but only with posting and blogging!  I've been busy behind the scenes, so to speak.  I've been wanting to join the Catered Crop's Top 12 in 2012 and so now's as good as time as any before there is no more time!  LOL

You can click on either the Month or the picture of each project and it will take you to the original post done in that month of 2012.  It wasn't so difficult since during the first part of the year I wasn't all that crafty.  You may also notice a few months missing totally -- May, July, and August.  I didn't make anything those months.  My excuse -- two surgeries in eight months with one month of travel lumped between July and August (which might have something to do with one of the surgeries, since it happened 2 weeks after I came home)!  So, I added a couple faves for a few of the months to compensate for the lost ones.  


Just For Me -- A "cheat sheet" I made for myself


Grey Wolf - Birthday card for my oldest son


A personal journal I use for doodling and jotting down my craft and artsy ideas.



I had just gotten the chevron stamp, which is still a fave of mine.



Got to love those whiskers!


Graduation card and gift bag for future daughter inlaw.



A new technique I tried from Cardmaker magazine.



OCTOBER
 
 Homemade paper (the purple) from Dylusions paints and moon made from Glimmer Mists.

I had been wanting to use my scrabble letters and paper,
thanks to a Moxie Fab challenge I finally did it.


NOVEMBER
I made five of these for our Thanksgiving feast. 


An easel card --- I love the pink tulle smoke!

DECEMBER




I loved the monochromatic look of Christmas cards, so very elegant and vintage!

I must add that it is pretty humbling to look back at one's work from a year past!  And then again, it's also an inspiration to do better in the year to come.  Definitely a much better New Year resolution than many others that come to mind!

Good thing I don't have to pick a favourite :)
I'm pretty sure you have a good reason for missing a couple of months - hard to feel like making anything when you're recovering!
