Best of 2011 and New Toys

2011 is over today and I can’t believe it. I can’t believe that a year ago I was pregnant with my Clyde and we didn’t even know if he was a boy or a girl! And my Finn has become so grown up. Time flies. Here are some of my favorite craft projects from the past year.

Linen Tote . Peacock Painting . Boy Bow Ties . Girl Onesie Refashions . A Monogrammed Plate . Glazed Furniture . Little Boy Shorts . Anthro Knock-Off Shower Curtain . Bow Clutch . My First Shirt (for myself :) . Casserole Covers (most popular project of the year) . A Memory Wall . Nook Covers . Color Wheel Clock . Octopus Costume . An Ornament Party

I have so many exciting things to looks forward in 2012 including a big business venture, a fun trip, and I have some fun new crafting toys. My new Canon T3i. My old Canon Rebel was a little technologically behind. Thankfully I sold her to a friend because I was sad to say goodbye to my first camera.

I never told y’all that I won the giveaway from TT&J for the new Silhouette Cameo… whaaaaat???! I know! I love it, its much quieter than the original and much easier to load vinyl which was always hard for me to do. Not to mention that its bigger and there is only one blade that just adjusts. 

And another fun toy I got for Christmas was the Fisheye Lens Adapter from Photojojo. I have only played with it for a few minutes and I love it already… look at the cool sun flare in this pic… My husband did so good on this gift.
Can you believe this fabric order I just made… I got a gift card from my husband’s fam and it was burning a hole in my pocket, I couldn’t even make it one week. I picked out my very favorites that I have been eyeing forever then I realized they all look just alike haha.
I am also starting Becky Higgins Project Life. I think in 2012 I am going to do a photo a day theme but still have pages for big events. Does anyone else have a project life album? I have a Pinterest Board for ideas HERE. I bought three core kits because I couldn’t choose just one, ha… don’t worry I haven’t scrapbooked an event since 2006, oops. Hopefully this simple but custom system will get me caught up. I’ve already done a few pages.

 Also not at all craft related, but some other new favorite things… (I have to have that candle on hand at all times, anyone else obsessed?)

 I’m obviously spoiled :) Does anyone else have any new toys? Or any exciting things coming up?… Here is to a great year in 2012!
