Top 10 Projects for 2011.

My top 10 projects, in no particular order.

Using my sewing machine for the first time.

A scrapbook page for my BOM.

A mini book for my mom.

My favorite card for the year. Love this technique.

A vest I knitted.

Knitted rings

A knitted fish hat.

Another LO for my BOM

A knitted necklace.

A picture frame.

My new obsession....

sewing doll clothes!

I got a sewing machine from my hubby for christmas. I haven't sewed with a machine in over 15 years! This was fun. I have another pattern all cut out a ready to sew later today. So you'll probably be seeing lots of sewing in the future.

And the best part, this was all made from old clothes.

Birthday Candy!

As part of my previous LO about LESS. I'm offering up some candy.

This is a bunch of stuff I have went through. Some of it is from Swaps and some homemade stuff from different people that I'm never going to use. There is a whole bag of Chipboard pieces that I haven't used that I bought a few years ago. There is too much to name. This candy will end on January 12th. And I plan to announce a winner on the 13th, (which happens to be my birthday!)
Just leave a comment on this post, and check back on the 13th to see if you won!

A Mini Book!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Mady, 7, found the presents on the 23rd, and was all excited that Santa isn't real. So the boys stayed up and played elves on Christmas eve and got to help put the presents under the tree.

Over at Charisma , they are having an Anything goes challenge. And I finished this mini book in time to give it to the kids Grandma for Christmas. She LOVED it!

It's an Envelope mini book. Made all of materials I had on hand. The inserts are a list of questions and then I asked each of my 4 kids the questions seperately and wrote them down on pages for the book.

I made this page last night based a Scrapfit challenge. Your word of the year. My word is LESS. I chose this because I get stressed out a lot. So I want LESS STRESS. I'm also trying to clean out the house so there is LESS CLUTTER.
Very Simple page with LESS stuff on it!!!

The weekly warmup over at Scrapfit is to post your favorite LO or card from 2011. I have made a total of 8 LO's and 19 Cards for the year. Pathetic... And what is with more cards than LO's? I'm not a big card maker.

But here is one of my favorite cards from the year.

I love that it is made from all scraps. I'm going to be making more of these cards in the future.
