Looking Back @ 2011

I’ve noticed three different spins in blogland this week…. some of the people I admire are doing wrap-up posts (showing some favorite pieces from the past year), some have said they’re taking a breather and will see us next year, and some have gone Radio Silent.  All are understandable, of course.  It can’t get much busier for us all than the last 2 weeks of December, no matter what holiday you celebrate.

And on that note, I’d like to extend Best Wishes & Happy Holidays.  Please don’t be offended if I’m not saying Merry Christmas – I’m not slighting you (and I personally celebrate Christmas) but I’m also acknowledging those who celebrate Hanukah and Kwaanza.

Since I didn’t plan ahead and thought I’d still be creating this week (!) I am going to join the first group, and share 5 projects I really liked from this year:

Bicycle Tag - Curious!  Marjie Kemper

Floral tag with niche frame - metal, fabric, foam care, paper - Marjie Kemper

Time tag with rustic effects

Good Old Days tag art - tuck a photo in your tag for a small keepsake - Marjie Kemper

Those were all tags, and this one is an ATC triptych:

ATC Triptych - Tim Holtz Umbrella Man - Marjie Kemper

These are some of my favorites from this year.  I’ll have another design team post for Our Creative Corner on Saturday, and then look forward to jumping back in next week (and next year) with many new creations.

Best wishes and Happy Holidays!
