So I know I've accomplished something this year

With the way time slips by it is so nice to look back on the year and say, "Yes I did accomplish something!"

So what did I accomplish this year?
I got my green on by turning these Starbucks beverage bottles into vases.


Upcycled an oatmeal container into a yarn holder.


And used newspaper to make a flower pocket.

Tried my hand at the homespun kind of life with wool dryer balls,



And rose petal jelly.


I Lived Lovely by "using the good stuff" (and several other challenges).



Twice (at least!)

Made art out of poetry and a paper bag.


Made a spring pom-pom garland with tissue paper and ribbon.


Discovered what to get for the guy who has everything.


Decorated my candles with things I found in my house...



And made a bare bulb chandelier to shed a little light on the subject.


I shared my "botanical apothecary" collection.



Made something pretty out of something that was frustrating me.


Learned how to hand-sew and made this cell phone pocket from eco-felt.


Turned mismatched oddities into a jewelry catch all.


Inspired you to find the pin-up in you with silk flower hair clips.


And put that new hand sewing knowledge to good use and made myself a flowered headband.


Thanks for joining me on this look back over the highlights of the last year - here's to more loveliness and creativity in 2010!

Great job! I think my favorite are the wool dryer balls. But it is actually hard to choose. Way to go!
