A Look Back into 2009

WOW, 2009 is quickly coming to a close and that means in March 2010 I have been blogging my crafty creations for THREE years that is HUGE! There are many great ideas you can find in my Creative Adventures and many posts about random things. I am getting close to hitting my storage limit and plan on going back and deleting some random posts through that journey I thought about closing out the blog year by highlighting my fave post for 2009 below you will see my faves for the first 6 months of 2009 but, first I want to share with you my top 5 tools that helped me in this adventure.

1) Cricut Expression
2) Cricut Design Studio
3) PapertreyInk.com (there is not much here that I don't like;)
4) Scor-Pal
5) SU Bella Rose DP pack

Now onto my monthly picks...

July 13 CAS swap card This was my swap card and it made use of my Lil Bloomers I had such fun creating these this past year. July also meant my DH started treatment to lower his cholesterol and triglycerides levels. Proud to report the first 6 months he has made awesome progress and is on the road to feeling MUCH better.

June 2 flower pot shape card I taught myself how to crochet flowers in 2009 in the process taught our DD L and now she enjoys making crocheted items. She took on a huge project making scarfs for Christmas gifts.

Ice Cream cone treat bag May 22 One of my Cricut DS projects, I am addicted to this program and LOVE making cut files. You can download my .cut files for free take the link under blog header and you are on your way.

April 3 2009I found JenC in 2009 she was very helpful on my Journey with Cricut and Cricut DS this is one of her .cut files I used it to make these cute bags for Easter Gifts.

52 sketches Week 8 and Week 9 This site was great for me and got me into doing more scrapbooking (my first true crafty love). I enjoyed taking pics of Little J and scrapping them for her. And you my readers know 2009 was the year of the digi camera. From broken cameras to new cameras that stunk to my friend Wanda creator of My Creative Corner that actually sent me the camera that I now use. Thanks again Wanda!

PTI blog hop Feb 25thA PTI blog hop project later won second place at the county fair (I was crooked on some cuts). I used my fave dp pack on this creation.

OCC Sketch Card Jan 30th 2009 Made use of the Bella Rose DP pack on this creation also along with a sketch from Our Creative Corner.
