My favorite card of the year. Just Me Prints is primarily a card-making blog, so it only makes sense to start here.
I still love this card so much. It was inspired by the oscar-nominated movie "Life of Pi" and the making of this card was a creative journey in and of itself. I also got to work with my friend, Marlyn, who made matching cookies. Anytime I get to work with Marlyn is a good day.
I love throwing and crafting parties. My favorite party of the past year was our 10th anniversary party.
I crafted a lot of little details, weaving doilies and soft charm throughout, but my favorite element was the scroll of vows I wrote out in the middle of the room:
I also started doodling a bit this year. I can't draw "from scratch" - I need to look at a picture to be able to draw things that have any kind of scale, but I surprised myself and hope to continue to develop as an artist this year. My favorite drawing is this one that I framed for my girls' room.
My favorite gift packaging. When my eight-year-old Sofia had her double-knee surgery this past fall, I baked "pill" sugar cookies and wrapped them for each of the nurses who were caring for her. The nurse image is so cute!
My favorite sewing project. Who knew a felt burger could be so cute:
I was published a few times in 2013! My favorite publication was an owl-y party invite. RSVP to "the mummy" still cracks me up.
And, lastly, if blog visits are any indication, here was YOUR favorite project of 2013:
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you've enjoyed this look back. Come back on January 1st - I will have a special post with a giveaway to start the new year!
