Happy New Year and My Faves of 2011

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you're all bright and chipper this morning, or if not, at least have a good dose of caffeine or hangover chaser in your hot little fist. In any case, if you're sitting bleary eyed in front of your computer, I've got some projects to looks at (albeit oldies, but aren't they the best kind?) Behold my fave projects of 2011. Certainly not monthly for we all know, I've had some "iffy" months the last couple, but a fairly decent representation of my style. I'll can the explanation of each but if you're interested, you can view the original post to get more info. So without further ado...



Again, BBTB2. Hmm...seeing a bit of a pattern here?

For Macabre Monday. Aha! My dark side creeps in!


For Bah!Humbug!
For The Altered Alice

Ahem...for Bah!Humbug!

For Tiddly Inks

For The Altered Alice

For Macabre Monday


Yes, I know, LOTS of Cricut. It will always be my first love since that's what got me into this whole crafting scene in the first place and BBTB & BBTB2 have been the driving force in keeping my Cricut creativity alive. And I'm excited to announce that since our BBTB2 team leader Heather is stepping down to assume precious "Grandma duty", my dear friend and longtime DT sister Carole and I are taking the helm at BBTB2. Stay tuned for an exciting opportunity in the very near future.

Happy New Year Donna. It was fun looking at your favs from 2011. I remember all of them very well;) I love them all but if I had to pick a fav it would be the snowflake and butterfly..hence the inspiration for my sentiment, and Sweet Dreams! I can't wait to see what you bring us in 2012!

Honestly, Donna, if there ever was a Cricut Queen, you are the Q. Your work is so inspiring, so heartful and it is a wonderland scrolling down through these wonderful Donna creations. I am so blessed to be sharing the helm with you on the 2012 BBTB2 design team. I am beside the most wonderful designer and friend. Happy New Year.
