My favorite LTC Creations this year has definitely been the Scrapbook Flower wreth for V-day. So simple, but so beautiful

I would like to see DIY stained glass that you can do at home....I know....strange.

I am a recent follower and I enjoy seeing a new idea posted every day. It is my study break from school. Since I'm on a budget I especially enjoy the "thrifty" projects!

That One Girl February 28, 2011 at 6:58 AM  

I LOVE when you do room re-dos!! I am going to be redoing my house very soon and every time you post one I always get ideas and pointers!!! <3 it!

That One Girl February 28, 2011 at 7:05 AM  

I would really like to see some decorating advice... for those like me that have no sense of decorating... (Seriously... you guys could throw a stick in a mason jar and say it was fashionable and I would believe you!)

s.abeverly February 28, 2011 at 8:03 AM  

I love the paper wreath ideas. The one where the eggs are covered in old paper and the paper rose ones are the reason I started following this blog! My fiance used to work at a library and I have some old books he collected for me that I would love to turn into paper roses and wreaths to use at our wedding!

s.abeverly@yahoo.com

s.abeverly February 28, 2011 at 8:05 AM  

I would love to see more paper crafts. The little cards designed the other day were really great and so creative! I'm thinking of designing my own invitations for my wedding and that project definitely grabbed my attention.

Lindsay February 28, 2011 at 8:30 AM  

I LOVE everything you do with book pages! I can't wait to try them!

Lindsay February 28, 2011 at 8:34 AM  

I really enjoy the posts on how to reuse things found in your own home (frames, dishes, pillow cases, etc). I would really be interested in ways to use broken pottery or dishes. Some of my dishes from my grandmother broke recently and I want to find some beautiful way to keep them. I would love to know your ideas.

Audrey February 28, 2011 at 8:38 AM  

I love the sewing tutorials!

Audrey February 28, 2011 at 8:39 AM  

Please post more tutorials!!

TBonesMom February 28, 2011 at 8:50 AM  

Favs: Christmas Countdown with vintage flashcards by Tiffany, Bewitched Wreath by Patrice, Pearl Adorned Paper Blossoms by Erin, and the T-shirt Art by Jessica. How's that for specific? :)

TBonesMom February 28, 2011 at 8:51 AM  

As for your 2nd question: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT! You guys do a fabulous job and I don't see anything to change. I do like the theme weeks, but I think you're already amazing!

Renae February 28, 2011 at 8:56 AM  

Gosh, I like tutorials...i'm not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer!!

Missy knits February 28, 2011 at 8:56 AM  

I would love to see more home decorating ideas, of course! I especially love Pottery Barn knock off ideas (like the weathered clock face--that was fabulous)!!

Renae February 28, 2011 at 8:57 AM  

Here's my "what do I want more of"...how's about some photography tips? That would be helpful for this newbie! :)

tammyig February 28, 2011 at 10:50 AM  

My all time fav was the branch stenciling on the old wood. I would buy one in a second as I'm not sure I could repeat the look.

alamama February 28, 2011 at 10:51 AM  

hmmm...i can't really recall which one was my fave BUT i do know that I did something from here and the hubby loved it.

alamama February 28, 2011 at 10:52 AM  

i like what you all post already, but maybe more "older" child, say preteen/teen crafts. thanks for asking!

Carolyn February 28, 2011 at 10:53 AM  

I am a recent craft blog follower - and yours was one of the first that I found...and you really inspired me! Thanks for getting me excited to create and get crafty in my home!

Jennifer Huerta February 28, 2011 at 6:37 PM  

I would love to see more craft tutorials for items that don't look particularly "crafty" (like a Kindergarten project--not that you guys have any of those, but I have seen far too many "country" looking items from DIY sites).

I don't think i could just pick one item that i like the best out of your projects. they are all amazing. i did make a growth chart for my house and finished it a week before our first son turned 1 so that was amazing and i had been searching for one that was not babyish and that would look appropriate with the rest of our home decor all year round and for years to come. thank you for the inspiration!

Can't wait to get the growing chart on our wall in the family room. Hmmm... love the paperback book wreaths, and the t-shirt pillows! Your blog brings such joy to my day. Thank you for your hard work, and for all the posts! AND, for the chance to win a fabulous dress. :)

1. For 2011 I enjoyed the 2/21 post on Silhouette Heat Transfers. Overall this year I REALLY loved the family blocks (3/15/2010). I have actually gotten the items to try this on my own when I am finished with my final semester in grad school and hopefully before our baby girl arrives! :)

2. I would love to see more photography advice. I hope to be exploring photography much more after graduation and I need all the help/ advice I can get.

3. I have "liked" Shabby Apple.
