top twelve projects of 2012 at Ginger Snap Crafts

I love, love, love looking at everyone’s top project posts! Isn’t it fun to look back & see how far you’ve come & what you’ve accomplished in one short year? For fun you can check out my top ten of 2011 post {here}. I’ve come a long way! ha! 😉

When I looked through the most viewed projects from this past year I noticed a few things.  Five of these projects were guest post I did on another blog first & three were from sponsored post! So I guess I must work better under pressure! ha! A couple of them involved fun things I did with my kiddos.  Annnd one post went crazy on Pinterest for something that wasn’t really part of the project. {You’ll see what I’m talking about in a minute!}

Here we go!  In no certain order….my top 12 post of 2012~

This chore chart was first seen on Lil’ Luna.

LDS mission bank
My son has been busy filling his mission bank this year,

burlap wreath pinterest contest

burlap wreath with hello door vinyl
This is the project that went kind of crazy on Pinterest
but not for the wreath!  The hello vinyl was a hit!
My etsy shop was overwhelmed with orders & because of that
I decided to close my shop & focus solely on my craft blog.
{Don’t worry you can still order the hello vinyl at Create it. Go!} 🙂

diy canvas prints
This a great way to get the canvas look for really cheap. 😉

This was another project for Blueprint Social & Plaid.
I LOVE this cupcake stand.  We use it all the time!

This was a guest post on another blog back in 2011.
{I believe it was originally on The 36th Avenue.}
I finally posted it on my blog in January 2012.
If I had known it would be so popular I would of posted it sooner. ha! 🙂
These are sooooo easy to make & turn out really cute.

Now this one is my super star post! ha! 😉
According to my blogger stats this one post
