Top 10 projects in 2011

Wow! Today is the last day of 2011 and what better way to say good bye to this year than to share our top 10 projects of 2011. Our blog grew exponentially over 2011 and we could not be more thankful for our loyal followers! We had a chance to participate in some pretty cool campaigns, we got a blog makeover, we were accepted into the BlogHer ad network, we did some guest posting, we started a YouTube Channel, a Scribd Account, we joined Google+, and most importantly of the social media mediums… we joined Pinterest! (Which has changed the way us crafters organize all projects from here on out and where we turn too when we have crafters block and need a little inspiration)! Oh, and I forgot to mention that we finished quite a few projects! 2011 marked for a busy year and we can only imagine how much more busier 2012 will be. We have a laundry list of projects we want to complete both small and big! Don’t worry… I’ll share our goals for 2012 tomorrow! Without further ado… here are our top 10 most viewed projects in 2011!

10: Double-Sided Fall/Halloween Painted Pillow Covers

These pillows turned out to wow even myself (and Mr. Woodsy was shocked I had this type of creative energy in me)! I’m still in love with these pillows and can’t wait to come up with some new DIY painted pillows for our front porch! These pillows made their debut on Tatertots & Jello blog.

9: Snowflake Confetti Ornament

This was such an easy ornament to make and made such a big impact! Not only did I make quite a few handmade ornaments this year I hosted our first ever 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments! I can’t wait for next year’s handmade ornament extravaganza!

8: iPhone Sleeve

I made this for my mom for her birthday… an easy sleeve style case that protects your phone when your not on it! Needless to say it’s not all shiny and new any more and a new case is due!

7: Modular Shelves

Mr. Woodsy went above and beyond on my modular shelves for the craft room. I know I never finished posting about m y craft room and the final walk through… don’t worry. I am working on a video tour for 2012!

6: Skeleton Vase

I dreamed about making this vase and thus it was brought to life! I loved making this vase using dollar store materials and am glad to have it for many Halloweens to come!

5: Bean Bag Toss Tutorial

We originally guest posted on Sawdust & Paper Scraps with this fun Handmade Christmas in July tutorial! We then gifted this bean bag set to a friend as a house warming gift!

4: Fall Painted Table Runner

I loved making this table runner! I loved the color and the fact that I used an inexpensive drop cloth! I can’t wait to make other themed/colored table runners for future holidays!

3: Yoga Skirt

I made this skirt after falling in love with a similar skirt I bought at Old Navy a few years back. Stretchy knit, a sewing machine, and the key to it all… a knit needle and your in business! No zippers here!

2: Strapless Yoga Dress

I loved making and wearing this fun summer dress this year! Based of the Yoga Skirt (above) I used coordinating fabrics to make this fun dress!

1: Mod Podge Glitter Flats

This doesn’t surprise me at all! Given that the top searched craft item on Google in 2011 was for glittering flats… this post falls right in par with what the world was looking to craft in 2011!

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!


  1. Thanks for the review! I don’t remember ever seeing the iPhone case. Pinned it! Thanks and Happy New Year!!!

  2. Happy New Years, I Love the Projects

  3. Your craft room is awesome! so jealous of your ribbon roll organizer too.

    • Thanks! One of these days Mr. Woodsy will finish writing up how he made the desk portion of the craft room. I plan to post pictures & tutorial of the chair I recently reupholstered for the room, and then I’ll do a video walk through giving the world a grand tour of my space! Believe it or not I need an extension made for my ribbon rack… it’s full to the brim! It’s on the 2012 to-do list!
