best of 2011

Below are my (and reader) favorite blog moments from last year. How fun to look through a journal of my projects!

Obviously the launch of my professional website is probably the biggest highlight—and gives me the most excitment for things to come in 2012.

A super fun styling gig was the Bridal Expo with Tie That Binds.

A personal growth project experimenting with color theory in prop styling.

Still falling in love with these images from our 3rd Anniversary Photo Shoot.

Bright colors abound everywhere in April's Easter Brunch.

Another fun styling project was working on a Catering Display for another wedding expo.

And on the home front we accomplished a (somewhat minor) bathroom renovation.

The most popular DIY was the outdoor pallet table we made for our summer patio.

Can't get over how fun this birthday surprise invitation turned out!

Lastly, the amazing Advent Calendar I recieved has been wildly popular with readers and has now inspired my craft partner and I to come up with more collaborations...to be announced at a later date.

So there you have it! A recap of 2011 highlights on Joy Ever After. Thanks so much to all of you for stopping by and inspiring me to keep posting. Looking forward to sharing all the great things in the upcoming year!

If you and your friend ever produce for sale the advent calendar that i saw on your blog, i will be the first to buy it! I have looked long and hard for a cool advent calendar that really celebrates Jesus and not just the trimmings of His Birth. I love that you combined scripture and Chirstmas songs and some really cool type! So, just sayin... i'm in if you're askin!
