2012: My Favorite Posts

I debated whether to do what my hubby did and list the top favorite posts from Pinterest or from my blog traffic. I decided to combine the two, and throw in a couple of posts that might not have gotten a lot of hits, but are some of my favorites. They are not in any order so I did not assign any numbers. Click on the text to take you to the post.

I loved how this stamp looks on fabric using this method. I need to revisit this technique and do a repeating pattern for an all over design.

I noticed there has been a lot of interest in my soap posts. We’ve made more soap than I’ve blogged about, but I just haven’t taken the time to write about them. The favorite of the Pinterest crowd has been our Coconut Cocoa Soap, which is easily one of my favorites.

Another soap post that was popular was Soap Lessons Learned, which was an old post from 2010.

The ice dyeing posts continue to be popular including this one.

My sunprinting posts also get their fair share of pins especially this one using Dye-Na-Flow.

This was probably one of my favorites this year – my first video tutorial on Sharpie Spin Art.

I was surprised at the hits my Lavender Shortbread Cookies recipe received. However, these are great cookies without the lavender.

This past year I made a couple things I always wanted to. The first one was to have my designs put onto a thermofax screen. That was neat and so much fun to use.

And using some of my screen printed fabric with a thrift store find. I love this shirt and I’ve had a lot of compliments on it. It was nice to say I was using some of my fabric!

Well, that’s it for 2012. I’m looking forward to a colorful 2013. Thanks for dropping by for the review.
