Michele's Craft Room ~ 1st Blogaversary Hop!

This is only the second hop I have ever been in so it should be a lot of fun!! 
Here are my projects for hop - Michele told us we could make whatever we wanted so I'm going to share cards I have been making for my mom over the past week. (I'm replenishing her stash of cards for next year).

Then she had me make cute little favor boxes for her to give out at work.

Here is the write up that Michele did for her hop!!!

Hello and welcome to my first blog hop in honor of my 1st year of blogging! I have participated in tons of hops and have seen so many cute ideas and new techniques so I decided to create one of my own! I consider it my diary. It's fun to look back at the projects I created a year ago and know now what I could have done differently to make it awesome! If you don't have a blog, now is a great time to start one! It's super easy and a great way to share your talent with friends, family and www friends you make along the way! Best of's free!

I have an amazing "present" up for grabs ~ all you have to do is visit each of the blogs below, become a follower and leave a comment. A winner will be chosen on Wednesday 1/2/13!

The following ladies have graciously shared their time with me today and have some fabulous projects to share with you so lets get hoppin'!!!

Happy New Year ~ Hope it's the best one ever!
