Even though I haven’t had this blog very long, I still wanted to post my top 10 favorite posts over the last (almost) year.  Looking back, I have accumulated a wide variety of DIY projects, crafts, art, and photography related posts.  It was fun going through my archive and seeing how this space has evolved in the short time I’ve had it.  I found project ideas I had completely forgotten about, and was reminded about projects I still have to finish.  2012 is looking to be a busy year! 
Here are my top 10 personal favorite posts of 2011:
10. DIY Envelope Guestbook from Project Weddings. This seems a little more fun then just signing your name in a guest book.  I tired to get my sister to do this for her wedding, but… no dice. 
9. S-hook Jewelry Hangers from A Full Measure of Happiness.  I loved this simple idea so much, I went out and bought a bunch of hooks.  Now all my necklaces are tangle free and hanging beautifully. 
8. 20 Unique Pumpkin Carving Ideas from C.R.A.F.T.  I love Halloween, and this was a fun roundup of pumpkin carving ideas.  Definitely something to refer back to next year. 
7. Anthropologie Sewing Kit posted by Homemade Crap.  Ok, this isn’t technically a post - I reblogged this from Homemade Crap.  I fell in love with this idea of a sewing kit in a mason jar, and it inspired me to make my own. 
6. Magnetic Tin Containers from Martha Stewart (found via Font Crafts).  Perfect storage idea for an office or in the kitchen. 
5. Book Nook from Thrifty Decor Chick (found via Decor Hacks).  I wish I had a closest to make myself a little nook like this. 
4. Vintage Camera Nightlights by Jayfish.  I want one of these so badly.  Also check out this post where the creator Jayfish shows how he makes them. 
3. Junkmail Snowflakes from Michele Made Me.  This was my most popular post of the year…. with over 600 notes! This post was not only featured on the Tumblr DIY board, but was also at one point the 5th most popular DIY post on Tumblr.  It was exciting.  I still can’t really believe that the beautiful snowflakes are made from junkmail.  Big thanks to Michele Made Me for creating these! 
2. Clothespin Present Toppers by Ez of Creature Comforts, guest blogging for Martha Stewart. Ok, this is another reblog - I reblogged this from dizzymaiden. I loved these glittery decorations so much I made similar ones for all my Christmas presents this year.
1. Rock Paper Scissors Toolkit in a Tin by Me.  This is my favorite post of the year - and it’s one I made myself!  This mini Altoids tin was inspired from a reblogged post I saw on True Blue Me & You of a funny drawing by the talented Sirin Thada.  I made this for my sister as a stocking stuffer.  It was a hit and the highlight of our Christmas morning.  Everyone loved it.  Thanks to True Blue Me & You and Sirin Thada for the inspiration. 
So, those are my favorite posts of the year!  What are yours? I will hopefully get back in the swing of things in the next couple of days and will resume posting on a regular basis again.  I hope everyone had a wonderful 2011 and best of luck in 2012!

Shot-for-shot remake of Disney’s Recess opening.  I loved the cartoon Recess when I was younger. I thought it hilariously captured life on the playground.  They just don’t make cartoons like that anymore.  I laughed when I saw this on The Daily What today:

School Project of the Day: The Sheridan College Media Arts class of 2013 recreated the opening scene of Disney’s Recess, shot-for-shot.

It really is a perfect shot-for-shot remake!  See the video here.

Children’s doodles painted realistically.  These paintings  by Dave DeVries are part of The Monster Engine, an 11 year art project:
The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.
The results are cute, and a little scary at the same time. See more here, and buy the book here.

In relation to my last post, while perusing Sean Edward Whelan’s portfolio, I saw the above painting.  It kind of reminds we of that movie Moon, and has a retro sci-fi feel.
