Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Yes, I've been enjoying time with Mr.G and the kids...having everyone at home has thrown me off my schedule more than once over the past couple of weeks and hasn't given me much time to blog.  That's OK--I got to save up all kinds of post ideas for the coming weeks!

Last night we had an early "ring in the new year" for the kids with friends.  Aren't these party hats they made adorable!  My littlest have been wearing them all morning!


All week we've been moving furniture and doing those little around the house fix-ups that have been on the list all year long.  Today we plan on moving some more furniture...you know how they say "start the new year as you mean to go", well I mean to have an organized house this year!

Yeah, right.  Now that I've put that out there I should throw open my arms and welcome the mess my house will be!

I thought I'd share some of the projects I really enjoyed this year.  Click the pictures to go to the posts.  I've had some hits and some misses (many more than I posted) in 2010 when it comes to my crafty side.  All in all it was a good year!  Blogging helped me keep track of my projects, for the most part I remembered to take pictures of everything I made...although I wasn't great at posting everything!

A couple of misses from 2010:
 
It did find a good home with a pregnant friend of mine...who should really put it on and take a picture! (hint!!)

 
Still hate this pattern...the bag really is too big, but I did a good job putting it together so maybe I should just give it away....someone out there may like it more than I do!

The hits....where to start!  I had so many projects I loved doing this year!


Monster Stuffies for a 2nd & 4th Birthday! 

Pain to make, but so much fun to eat!

My favorite embroidered T shirt of the year!

Sweater cupcakes!

I think I'm going to repeat this project soon!

The pre-school teachers loved these!

Poke charms and pops were a hit!

Dolly and me skirt

Fabric de-stashing at it's best!

More de-stashing plus a how to for the "Boo" dress.

Elephants!!


My oldest learning to sew...I'll be featuring more of her creations this year!
 
The 12th dress before Christmas!! The other 11 were for my littlest girls....I wonder if I'll be able to get them out of the closet before Valentines day?


Happy New Year--may it bring good health, happiness and lots of creative goodness to us all!
