Best of 2011: Reader’s Top Five

Can you believe this is the last week on 2011. My oh my how the last two months (not to mention the entire year) flew by! Just for fun, and for those of you who may not have been hanging around all year I wanted to do a few best of 2011 posts. Today I'm doing the most popular posts from 2011 later this week I'll do my personal favorites. I hope you enjoy these oldies but goodies! By far, my most popular post of this past year was my tutorial for quick envelope pillow cases.

I also made a fun lego storm trooper shirt for a little friend's birthday. His Star Wars Birthday Party was so stinking fun and cute I had to do a right up about the whole thing. My friend made awesome costumes, a crazy cake and all kind of games for her little's party.

In one of my many odes to my never dying love for all things Harry Potter I made this fun Hogwarts Bound Baby Outfit for a friend's new little lady and I also added them to my shop here.

I jumped on the book page craft band wagon and mad this fun Upcycled Book Page Wreath. Cheap, quick and easy, my kind of home decor!

And last but not least I shared a super scrumptious recipe for Eclair Cake. Seriously it's really good you should make it. It's been a good year, thanks for letting me share it with you!
