Best of Oopsey Daisy, 2011

Happy {almost} New Year!

Where has this last year gone?!  This year has been filled with all sorts of crazy adventures for our little family!  We settled into our very first home, watched our baby grow into a little person, and had the opportunity to travel to some really cool places.  Some days I wish time would slow down... just a little bit.

This has been a very busy year at Oopsey Daisy, too!  Today I want to slow down for a moment, and take a look back to share 12 of my favorite posts--one for every month of the year!

Here are some of my favorite (and your favorite!) posts of 2011:

You know I love all things ABC!  I started off January by sharing a rare paper crafting project:  This Gospel ABC Book.

February was a busy time, planning Little Man's Toy Story Birthday party.  I still don't know how I'll be able to top this party!

When I mixed up this leprechaun pie for St. Pat's Day in March, I had no idea what a hit it would be!  I have a feeling we will be making another batch this year!

In April, I shared these printable General Conference note-taking packets that I prepared for my Primary.

I LOVE mixing a little work and a little play.  In May, I shared my ideas for this monster play date, kicking off a memorable Summer Camp series.  I really enjoyed Summer Camp this year, and can't wait to do it again this summer!

We spent June honoring our Dad's!  Here on oopsey, I shared this "Pop for Pop" printable Coke can sleeve for Father's Day.  I love a quick and easy gift!

During a toasty July,  I whipped up this no-sew felt car mat.  I think it's safe to say that this ranks as Little Man's favorite project of the year.  He still uses this mat almost every day!

In August, I was thinking DIY!  I created my own mason jar apothecary candy jars.  I love decorating with candy!

It was (almost!) September when I first posted these photo tile coasters using resin.  This was also the most popular post of the year!  And guess what?!  I still love this project as much as ever!  I am making another batch in a week or two.

These scrumptious pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are one of my favorite posts of the year.  My tummy is growling at this memory from October.

I got my Christmas gifting on in November when I shared this etched hot cocoa jar.  Those marshmallow sticks dipped in crushed candy cane were sure tasty.  Yes, I sampled those.

Our December was all about Christmas traditions, and it began with our Christmas book advent.  I loved all of the Christmas book ideas you shared with me!

Many of my most popular posts of the year included Mommy School printable packets!

Of course you can check out all of my Mommy School packets here.  And yes, Mommy School will be returning very soon!
