A time to remember some of my favorite projects on the blog over the past year. 

I've picked my top 25. 
Yes, I narrowed it down to a whopping 25. I hate picking and choosing!! :) 

15. Eclectic Braided Bracelet 16. Framed Book Page Pumpkins 17. Thomas the Train Birthday Ticket Invitations 18. Meal Plan {Part 3 - Putting It All Together} 19. DIY Letterpress Stamp

Update on #18: The meal plan is ROCKING.MY.WORLD!! It is absolutely fabulous and still working strong. We wouldn't be eating well without it! 

20. Footprint Turkey Shirts 21. Framed Advent Calendar 22. A Book of Mental Hugs 23. Christmas Bingo 24. Candy Cane Trifle 25. Santa's Belt Hurricane Glass

These 25 projects are definitely some of my faves of 2011, but there are many more I didn't share! I would love for you to peruse around and see what you can find. :)

And, of course, my absolute favorite project of 2011
I cannot believe this little guy is 9 months old TODAY!!
A huge thank you to all of my guest bloggers in April and May who helped me take some much needed time away from the blog to spend with the newest addition of our little family.

One last thing...
