My Best of 2013

2013 has come and gone, as we charge into 2014 it is fun to look back and review…
Today I will be sharing my best (in my opinion) and favorite projects of 2013.  These are in no particular order and I will link the blog post, if there is one, that give more details if you are so inclined.
In 2013 I started my art journal.  These 2 pages are near and dear to my heart.

I am having a lot of fun with this journal…look for more in 2014.
I wasn’t always big on layouts but in 2013 I challenged myself to do more.  It is funny to me that most of 2013’s favorites are layouts.

These 2 layouts were put in display trays and I gave them to my sister-in-law for Christmas.

For those of you who know a little bit about me I am petrified of birds but you will very often see them on my projects!
IMG_8055 I love sunsets and have opportunity to photograph some AMAZING ones.  I think I will have a scrapbook of just sunsets and scenes…
IMG_8612I have an obsession with photo strips…
I have always been a card maker and try to give handmade cards to my friends and family for all sorts of different occasions.

2013 was also a year for tags.  I found myself making them a lot.

  1. Great project choices. Your work is beautiful. I can see why the first two (from your art journal) are you favorites. Love the map look!

  2. Gosh, Michele. All are so pretty! I've been a fan for ages :)
