The Best of 2009
Thursday, December 31, 2009
I'm BAAAAACK! My mojo went on Christmas vacation, apparently. Neglected to inform me, just packed its bags and headed somewhere tropical I suppose. But I'm feeling the old spark and I'll be posting a darling scrapbook layout tomorrow. Guess even our creativity needs a short break once in a while.
Last day of the year always makes me a little sentimental. Looking back at some of my previous posts, I thought I'd take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about my faves....
How Sweet It Is
The cupcake mania began the video tutorial, which is the most-watched video on my youtube channel. I'm stilled called "the cupcake lady" by many.
A Smidgen of Scrapbooking
I admit it, this was not my year to catch up on scrapbooking. Just a handful of layouts made it past my over-obsessive compulsion for perfect titles, clever journaling and just the right embellishments. Workin' on that. But I did a few, and that makes me happy. Check out this one, and this one, oh, and here too.
Do you... Create U?
This is big. For me, it's really, really big. My annual, once-a-year, eat-sleep-breathe Creative University. The 2009 event was so much fun, and the 2010 event is less than 8 weeks away. I'm all sold out for 2010, but 2011 is already in the planning stages.
Sewing... fitting... basting... pinning... All for one dress. So worth it.
I Can See Clearly Now
I have to say, I love this acrylic album. It was for a silent auction fundraiser for Operation Smile and I'm so proud to have participated in such a worthy cause. And unlike my usual method-of-operation, I created this one in a non-stop creative blitz. See, I CAN get something done when I have a deadline.
Crafty tutorials all month long, what could be better? A real kick-in-the-pants for my lazy posting, but it was so much fun seeing all the other bloggers who jumped in with their tutorials as well. Kuddos, crafters!
The Art of Being a Goof
This was my year to show off my natural ability to make a fool of myself. I think that this comment from a youtube user sums it up: "I mean this in the kindest way possible...You are SUCH a dork!". Compliment accepted.
So, if you get a chuckle from my silly face pictures, or odd attire, or the just plain strange discoveries, I'm glad to have brightened your day. Giggle on, my funny friends, giggle on.
