Top Ten From 2011...

... well, it was going to be my top 5 from 2011 but... I couldn't decide on a shortlist and top 10 of 2011 rolls off the tongue better. So, without further ado, here's what I am waffling on about today! Each year I have a set of files on Lionel Laptop; Jan thru to Dec and in those files are photo's of everything I have made over the year. Not all of the pieces have made it to the blog (some are too naff lol) and at the end of each year I like to have a nosey through them to see how my style has changed, you can see what influences me and my creativity as the months roll by. So this year I have decided to chose my fave pieces... and here they are (in no particular order, except for #1, which is my favest)


Number 10
This was the very first T'Pouch that I made... it was a Sunday Stamper from Week 158 and the theme was Steampunk.


Number 9
Another Sunday Stamper entry, this one was for Week 167 and was White Lines... more Steampunkiness here... I can see a trend...



Number 8
Oh say it isn't so... yet another T'Pouch, this time for a Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge... and the theme was Steampunk... see, more Steampunk, anyone would think that I liked this!!!




Number 7
Ah, something completely different! My BFF Andrea had just had her hall and stairs decorated and hinted that a nice 12" piece would look loverly on the wall... so, how could I resist! I made a big old shadowbox, filling it with stuff personal to her... oh and this was another Sunday Stamper entry - week 160 and the theme was Words.



Number 6
Is another Tag... yes, I do lurve my tags lol This one is all bright and happy lookin (I seem to lean towards more muted colours so it was nice to try something different for a change)



Number 5
Another overloaded tag full of Tim-ness, this was an entry for SSS&S and the theme was Tim Techniques...



Number 4
More tags and more Steampunkery... this one was another challenge entry, this time for the fabulous Grungy Monday





Number 3
The gorgeousness that is Seedless Preserves Distress Ink had arrived in the Room of Stash and literally everything was being covered in it... including this tag, which was combined with Rock Candy Cracklepaint... even the flower has a coat of it!





Number 2
This has to be one of my favest... it was a giveaway T'Pouch for my 4th Bloggy Birthday...





Number 1
and finally... this is my favest thing I have made... ever! It combines my love of all things Studio 490 and Idea-ology with my fave colour scheme... and it hangs on the wall in the living room... It was my entry for the 150th Sunday Stamper which was "All You Need Is Love"



So there you have it... thanks for looking... I am off to search for Mojo... he is still AWOL and I is getting desperate lol TTFN

Gorgeous stuff! I don't know how you managed to pick just 10 from your uber-coolness!

ElizabethR said...

WOW I can here the TOTP music lol, all are gorgeous, but if I had to choose just one it would be number 5, the butterfly is just fantastic. Elizabeth xxx

Jo said...

See I thought you had a big crush on umbrella man and that's why you used him a LOT in your artwork. But what do I see on this top ten, those three Victorian dapper gents - ummmm is this a new crush I see???? Darcy says meow to AlfieCat. jo xx

Caz said...

Love them all!!! I was lucky enough to win No 2 which is now sat now on my desk as an inspiration piece when my mojo has gone walkabout (a regular occurrence!!)!!
If I had to pick most favourites.... hmmm 1, 2, 5 & 6 I think but it changes everytime I look!!
Happy Crafty 2012 - looking forward to the next top ten!

A beautiful way to look back at the year. You've chosen an amazing Top 10. Having said that, I'd say you've found Monsieur Mojo in a different way, namely sharing your creations and inspiration with us via your blog. Don't think that MM is solely about inky creativity, it's in EVERYTHING you do. Hugs for the New Year!

Lesley said...

Wonderful top ten!!!! I did wonder when i scrolled down if your Wendy/Tim shadow box would be your fave!!! It's most beautiful and a real treat to see it again!!!

Jennibellie said...

Stunning! Very inspiring collection here. Happy New Year :)

Andrea said...

Hels my wonderful picture is now hanging pride and place in my hall along side Dans and mine and they all look rather fetching, thankyou and all the best for the year ahead xxx

Joanne said...

5,3,2 for me but not in any order. But then, I also love all the others because I adore all your work, even all the steampunk ones which I just cannot get to grips with. I am so looking forward to seeing your projects this year especially as you are now a tele queen.
Hugs Joanne xx

My name is Cindy said...

A great selection,couldn't choose a favourite myself. Don't think I could find 10 from my own output, this last year I have been a bit in the doldrums, I think it has been my least creative year since I started. If you find that mojo guy send him my way!!

Ellephantastic said...

Happy New Year!!

I hope 2012 brings you all the crafty-ness you dream of ;0)

I'm starting the new year with a Half Price Sale on all my craft products HERE

Hugs Helen x

Kirsten Alicia said...

They are all gorgeous Hels, but the hangings are really stunning.

Barb Cady said...

What a wonderful top ten, I love them all! Thank you for your inspiration last year, when Mr Mojo comes home I can't wait to see what you kick start this year with Happy New Year Hels xx
