Well, here we are.  Another year older, another year wiser, and another chance to reflect.  I'd have to say that I have grown more in 2011 than any other year.  Not only in my personal life, but through my crafting as well.  I thought this would be a good chance to look back, and see my crafty progress from month to month.

But first, some highlights - and no, I am not doing this to brag...just to give myself a little pat on the back for all of my hard work!  :)

In 2011....
...I joined my first Design Team (and my 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and 5th, and 6th!)
...I got into the 2011 Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition, and actually made it to top 5 :)
...I started to make relationships with other bloggers- until this year I was always too shy
...I was published! (a few times!)
...I started my own challenge blog
...I reached 100 followers- then 200!

Now onto the projects!  It's weird for me to look at them, especially since I hate some of the things I made!  (I think "ick...why would I make that?" when I look at some of them...).  Unless I missed a few, below is every project I blogged about in 2011:













Did you make it this far?  If so, here's a prize:
 Have a safe and happy new year  :)
