2012 Roundup

I like to spend a little time reflecting on the year that is drawing to a close.  Two thousand twelve brought many changes for me: I left a job, moved from Washington, DC to South Carolina, and started a new career.  Two thousand twelve also saw the start of this blog!

Throughout all of the changes that occurred this past year, I have very much enjoyed sharing craft projects and recipes with you, my readers, here on Scissors and Spoons.  I am grateful for all of the comments and inspiration that you have shared with me.  I am also grateful for each and every time that you have shared this blog with others. I have enjoyed visiting the blogs of many of the visitors who have commented on my posts.  I am very much looking forward to continuing to share my crafts and recipes with you in the new year!

Before it’s time to time to flip the calendars to 2013, I wanted to roundup my most viewed and favorite posts from 2012.

The most viewed craft posts on Scissors and Spoons were:

1.  DIY Salt Dough Snowflakes

DIY Salt Dough SnowflakesI made these salt dough snowflake ornaments to decorate my Christmas tree, but I love the look of salt dough so much that now that it is time to take down my Christmas tree, I am preparing some non-holiday salt dough decorations to share.

2. Recycled Calendar Origami Boxes

DIY Recycled Calendar BoxesTheses boxes were my first post on Scissors and Spoons.  As we welcome the new year, it is a great time to revisit this post and use calendars from 2012 to make pretty gift boxes.

3. DIY Paper Magnolias

I made these paper magnolias to mark the aforementioned move. I love this project because it can be made using simple materials — scissors, paper, and glue.

4.  DIY Paper Orchids
