A big thanks to everyone that shared awesome projects, advice and inspiration on Craftster in 2012.  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!

Aw, I know that! But wouldn't you say one of the projects voted as a Best Of in the "More Art, Less Craft" board was miscategorized? How can there be two quilling projects selected for two different boards?

No.  For some projects, it's up to the member to choose where they feel their project is best suited.  For example, a bouquet of paper flowers could be posted in Occasions: Weddings or in Paper Crafts.  In this instance, a quilled piece could be posted in More Art Less Craft or in Paper Crafts.
