My Top 5 Favorites for 2011

Everyone else is doing their top 10 favorites, but since I have been such a blog slacker I can't gather 10, because well, that would be just about everything I made last year. :-/ I just can't seem to find the time since getting a full time job. It's my first FT job in over a decade so the balance of life has been very challenging!

So here are my 5 fav's:















Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my short list. :)

  1. Even though your list is short, it is certainly sweet. I couldn't imaging finding crafting time if I had a full time job. The few things you did find time to make are really super. I hope you can find a little more 'me' time next year.

  16. Your cards are a perfect example of QUALITY over Quantity :-) Every one of them is perfect. I have to admit, my mouth dropped open a bit on that last one. The detail is amazing. You really rocked it! Happy New Year! I have a FT job too so I feel your pain! (and its not nearly as fun as playing with stamps!)

  28. These are all gorgeous and I love the colors in the first card. I'm a SAHM (who homeschools too) and I can only imagine trying to find the balance if I were to go back to work FT. Thanks for sharing these, they are all beautifully done! Looking forward to seeing more this year (no pressure! lol!). :)

  29. Great cards, Susan! I especially like the shortened jar with the gladioli and also the one below it with all the butterflies coming out of the jar. Very cute and well done!

  30. It's not the quantity, but the quality, and you've got some stunning cards here! I adore the first one with the blooming branch and birds - just gorgeous, and fabulous colouring and idea for the second one of putting YOF into the jar especially. TFS!

  31. Susan, I love what you did with the love birds, and the butterflies flying out of the jar along with the jar as a vase are just beautiful.
