Happy New year, everyone!

This week’s party was a great way to close out 2011.

You linked up some amazing projects and there is so much inspiration for the new year.

I love the crafting trends that we had this year from chevron to paint chips.

This paint chip album that was linked up is fun!

From Frugal Adventures with one Thrifty Chick

 

And you have to love the Mustasche craze of 2011

I especially love all of the makeovers that were linked up and the ones I saw all around blog land this year. Oh, how this inspires me to makeover a room in my own home. This is my year, right?

What a great party to end 2011!

Thank you to all of the CSI followers and bloggers that link up each week.

2012 is being planned but I would like to invite you to email me with challenge suggestions. I think because all of you are so talented that the challenges should be harder this year and stretch your creativity even further, so email me or comment with suggestions and if I pick yours, you can be the guest judge the week of the challenge.

Put challenge ideas as your subject of the email and send to dee@thecsiproject.com

 

Also, Giraffe Grins is going to be even bigger in 2012 and reach even more children in hospitals, so if you want to get involved be sure to email me with Giraffe Grins in the subject line. Read here for more information on how you can be involved.

There are even more fun features planned for 2012 including CSI Agents on the case. To see last month’s agent go here. If you think you have what it takes to be an agent, email me with CSI Agent as the subject.

You will be emailed an assignment and you will be an agent, if you choose to accept it.

(Yes, we just saw Mission Impossible so that line is on my mind)

Come back next week for the first challenge of the year!!!

If you have ideas how to craft using your left over Chrsitmas items, then this challenge is for you!

Come amaze our guest judge and recycle, reuse those leftover from Christmas.

 

Have a very Happy New Year’s Eve!

Much Love, happiness and Best Wishes, 

from The CSI Project
