My favorites of 2012

Well, everybody is doing it...so I thought I would post some of my favorite photos from my blog in 2012.


I decided early in the year that it was "the year of the ruffle" for me. I did not get as many ruffly project done as I wanted due to lack of
cooperation from my ruffler attachment. I do love this tablecloth I made of a bedskirt though. This was my most popular post :)

 
I love my bookcase backed in fabric using starch to adhere the fabric.


My melted rose caused me to have some burnt fingers but was another of my popular posts.


My picket fence is still one of my favorite projects of the year. I love hanging fresh flowers on it!


I adore my garden chair. It looked so pretty on our front porch all spring and summer.


I so loved this year in my garden. It produced an amazing amount of roses, and  I loved my white lilacs.


I had fun dying patterned fabrics!


I won this beautiful stencil and stenciled my first wall. I love it! I have yet to stencil the wall behind my bed but hope to get that done in 2013!



I painted my back door pink and have enjoyed it ever since :)


A big part of my 2012 was rescuing these sweet babies. It was exhausting bottle feeding these babies every few hours but they were so worth it. We adore them!


Angel wings has become one of my favorite things this year too. I made some for Janae, and made some for a giveaway, and this year hope to make some for me!

I look forward to doing lots of projects in 2013. I am the most content when I am creating something pretty!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful 2013!

I love them all. It is hard to decide which I like best. Though I do love that pink door. I have a link party called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop and would love to have you share this and any other posts with everyone. It runs from Wednesday through midnight Sunday. Here is the link to the party.

You have done some fantastic projects this year. So much softness and sweetness. The ruffled tablecloth is amazing. Would love to have made something like that, but I just recently got my sewing machine dug out from the pile of stuff I've been collecting. Maybe this year.

Happy 2013!

Dear Sandy I’ve been a follower for a while via Janae (NSSSC). You inspire me! I LOVE what you’ve done on your Kool-Aid budget! (That makes me smile) I’ve been through times of even a water budget! I LOVE going to thrift stores & was so excited when our GW started staying open till 9PM. My children have long gotten over their embarrassment of helping me load my roadside finds!! My oldest lives in Vegas & sends me pix via text message of her fab fines. Yesterday while at work I read your Blog from the very first post you did Thursday 9-1-11! I even had time to find a cedar chest (identical to my Mom’s)on Craigs List we’ll be getting it later today! & OF COURSE I will be painting it “WHITE” !!! I’m looking forward to 2013 1st on my craft agenda “RUB & BUFF” (Spanish Copper)! While at work till 2PM Hoping for another quite day so I can start reading Janae’s ! HAPPY NEW YEAR to your entire family –you’re an AWESOME daughter,sister,wife & mom!

Janet said...

You still have those cute kittens?! How cute and what a sweet person you are to rescue them. I love that ruffle white table cloth. I want one of those. Maybe I will try to sew more in 2013. xo
