2011 has been such a great year for me and my family. As far as my opinion goes, the best thing I made this year was this little guy.
He was the perfect addition to our family, and 6 months later we are more in love with him than ever.
As far as creative juices go, you guys had some clear favorites. So let’s get to those.
TOP 10 of 2011
This was a fun one to make for my daughter, and she absolutely loved it!
We had a great time doing all these things together as a family this summer. My kids loved looking at the board and picking what to do.
I’m glad you guys liked this one, because it was one of my favorite things I made this year as well. It has helped motivate my daughter to read every day. In fact, she doesn’t ever miss because she really wants to get her treat for the day!
I love that my family finally has a family motto displayed in our home. So much thought went into this and there are so many principles and lessons we can teach our children through this short, simple motto.
I was a little surprised at the reaction to this one. It was one of those last minute “I’ve got to have this up tomorrow” projects. Even Tori Spelling liked it. LOL!
This has become one of my favorite rooms in the house (even though it’s not quite done yet). Hopefully, I can get it finished in 2012. The green furniture is definitely my favorite refinishing project I’ve ever done, and the diaper stacker is still one of my most popular posts (it was in 2010 otherwise it would have easily been in the top 10 this year).
Stencils were such a big thing this year, as well painting rugs, so it’s no big surprise that putting the two together would be a hit. This was one of those projects that was just plain fun to do and I absolutely loved the end result!
This one was part of my new and improved laundry room, which was also in the top 10, but I decided to combine them. It’s one of the few rooms in my house that is done!
I am so grateful for the response to this. With over 20,000 downloads in the last month alone, I hope many of you were able to bring CHRIST back into your holiday season.
This was a clear winner for the year. Several projects in this room (including the Styrofoam Wall Art, Duvet Cover, and No Sew Fabric Cornice) were also in the top 10, so once again I combined them.
Of course yellow being my favorite color, means this room has a very special place in my heart. Also pretty much everything in this room is DIY, so I have a great feeling of pride and satisfaction when I walk in there.
Well that’s it. Were your favorites in there? Please feel free to check out all my projects and tutorials for more.
Thank you so much for making 2011 great and sharing it with me. I am so grateful to each of you – for your kind comments, pins, emails, etc. I truly have the best readers.
Thanks again and I am really looking forwards to 2012!!!
