Many, many thanks to everyone that shared amazing projects, advice and inspiration on Craftster in 2013.  As always, it was such a great year for our community, and we're so happy each of you shared a part in it!

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 to us!  This is just a small sampling of what makes our community such a tremendous place to call home.  We all deserve major kudos for everything we've contributed to Craftster in the last year! Smiley

Once again, thank you! Kiss  And congrats to our Best of 2013!

I feel so honored to be among the "Best of"...........I certainly never expected be a Best of Winner!  Thank you so much!!!  But I do have to give credit to where credit is due.   I think all of the ATC swappers that helped with this collection should be recognized also.  They are a fantastic group and fulfilled my swap requests until I had a completed wonderful alphabet that I could frame and be proud of, so kudos to all the Craftsters out there that helped me achieve this goal!!!!!!!  Smiley

Thank you all so much!  This caught me completely by surprise!  I'm away at a needleworkers guild retreat and this made the weekend even more special!  Love craftster!  I had to show the ladies the pictures too, they all think I should enter them in the fair.  Smiley


 I really appreciate it, and as soon as I get home to the computer I am going to swap my avatar out! 


Thank you all again, I had no idea at all that my project would be in the running.  *hugs* and much craftster love to all!

I wait for this time of year so I can see projects from boards I don't normally follow - I always find such new, interesting things to explore!

Thank you for honoring me with a "Best of" this year!  It's so much fun to post a project I've worked hard on and then wait see what kind of response it receives and then it's doubly fun to be recognized this way.

I can't imagine the amount of work that goes into making this list each year - kudos to all involved in that process!!

Thank you and congrats to all the awesome crafters out there. Everyone is so inspiring here and it motivates me to put on my thinking cap and create. I still remember the day I found Craftster, I think I was searching for melted record bowls and voila! Craftster popped up.  Love Craftster!!!!

(⌒▽⌒) I feel so late to the party haha!! Life has kept me pretty well off the pc except for a few scarce minutes to speed read through stuff, to sit down to this was quite the surprise! I've always loved my work, but never had much confidence in my skills, and usually disbelieved in most of the compliments family had given me on my work (their family, it just feels like its their job to 'lie' to you so they dont hurt your feelings haha!!)

Craftster has really helped me learn to not only love my craft, but to have more confidence in not only myself, my skills, but in the word of others. I feel like I've made quite a few friends here, and I love every minute of it! To be chosen as a craftster best of 2013 has only made my yukata I made for our wedding all the more special to me. Thanks everyone (⌒-⌒)
