The best projects of 2011, as seen on Little Lucy Lu!
OK .... well, they're MY opinion of the best projects, anyway.
And I hope some of them have been inspiring to some of you this year, too!
Before I get to the big list, I just have to tell you how fun it was to re-live the year via my "Projects" label button.
It was right around this time last year that I became a real blogger (or as close as I'm going to get, anyway!), and it makes me a tiny bit proud to see how my little blog baby has grown over the year ..... (even though I didn't reach my secret goal of achieving 1,000 followers by the end of the year).
At least I got close.
And truthfully, I never dreamed this blog would be something I would even be able to keep up with.
So, if for no other reason, I'm proud of just THAT -- that I made it through a whole year, with only a few bumps and bruises to show for it (haha!).
But now .... let's get back to the list (in order of appearance):
Alphabet Magnets I made for Lucy
.... a huge improvement over those cheap plastic ones on everyone's fridge! These have been SO much fun for Lucy, and I can actually say I LOVE having them displayed in my kitchen! They are so cute!
A serious BLESSING for me .... and all of my extra-long jeans that can now dry happily in their own special place.
This has totally transformed our laundry room -- and doing laundry, in general.
It is so nice not to have clothes drying on every other hook, cupboard door, chair-back, and any other place I could find!
(*I think this has been my most popular post to date, as well .... with nearly 150,000 page views! Wowza!)
which resulted in our very first successful garden!!!
I'm still kind of amazed I actually thought of this.
And considering they were basically FREE (aside from some spray paint), and are so PERFECT for holding/displaying books in Lucy's playroom, I'd say it was a pretty darn-good invention, if I do say so myself! :-)
These are two of my FAVORITE things in my mom cave!
Speaking of the Mom Cave ....
That has DEFINITELY been the highlight of my year, creatively speaking.
You have to check out my Craft Room Mega Post if you missed it the first time!
And the last two favorite projects both came in December ...
....and the Christmas Tree Card Holder!
(which is now so covered in Christmas cards, you can hardly see the tree!)
Love BOTH of these projects .... and look forward to using them again next year!
Whew! What a fun year!
Which project was your favorite ...???
The comments you have offered and the support you have given for my projects - and the blog, in general - has meant so much to me!
