A big thanks to everyone that shared awesome projects, advice and inspiration on Craftster in 2011.  It was a great year and, as always, we're amazed by our community!

Of course, choosing the "Best Of" is a fun, but very difficult task for us.  After all, all of the projects posted on Craftster are the best!  This is just a small sampling of what makes our community such a great place to call home.  We all deserve major kudos for everything we've contributed to Craftster in the last year!

Scrolling through all of the awesome projects from boards that I visit and those that I really should!  This list always reminds me to browse more! 

Seeing one of my projects on the list has given me heart palpitations.  Being on "Best of Craftster" was on my Bucket List, seriously, I'm beside myself.

Now I don't even feel like making dinner, I want to go out and celebrate!  Grin  Congratulations Craftsters.

Despite how very, very difficult it is to pick these, it is one of my favorite "task"s. Sentiments like this one

Seeing one of my projects on the list has given me heart palpitations.  Being on "Best of Craftster" was on my Bucket List, seriously, I'm beside myself.

and really everyone else's make me so happy to be able to say this is my job! I only wish I could pick everyone. It is soooo difficult to only pick 5 projects per board!

The Best Of list is always fun to explore and to be on it feels just wow.  I'm going through a rough time plus, this week marks the 1st anniversary of my Baby's passing.  (He's the fellow crafter in my icon)  Craftster is one of my few refuges and this is such an honor.

Thank you for choosing me but thank you even more to everyone for making this site such a wonderful place.
