So Long, 2011!

I'm not one for too much personal introspection at the end of the year. 
I was all set to make a mosaic of all the projects I made this year, but honestly, they were frustrating me and didn't look that great anyway. Also, looking through everyone else's great projects of 2011, I found myself getting a little annoyed at my lack of productivity. 

Then, I snapped out of it. I have gotten loads accomplished this year, and should be proud of that, right? One of the most important was guiding this little man through his third year of life...

  Happy Birthday, Carson Gabriel!

And just how are we celebrating?

My little farm boy requested pink cupcakes, pink frosting, and pig sprinkles!!

Should be some exciting times at the Lovelady house tonight. 

Happy New Year's to every single one of you and your families. Stay safe and have fun!!


  1. Happy new year to you and happy birthday to Carson. I'm very jealous of those pig sprinkles. (Although, I wish they were black with white markings, my father used to raise Berkshires!)

  2. Bwahaha, love the fact that you can even GET pig sprinkles! Happy birthday Carson :o)

    And happy new year to you all too :o)

  3. Happy birthday Carson!

    Toni, I wish you and your family all the best for 2012.

  4. Happy Birthday cute man - great choice in the cake department, you can come and eat cupcakes with me anytime!
    Happy New Year Toni - it's been great getting to know you this year xxx

  5. oh I love your little guy's birthday treat request! And yes, he/they ARE the most important accomplishment of all! I know you have accomplished alot quilty-wise too, though - and I have so enjoyed following along & being blog buddies!

  6. Seriously? You really think you weren't that productive this year? Are you crazy? I think you pretty much put me in the dust :-) Love the cupcakes! Have a great New Year's Eve :-)

  7. Well, I think you've had a super productive year! Seems like you were posting another finish every time I checked your blog! I've loved reading your posts this year.

    Love those piggie cupcakes too! :)

  8. Happy New Year Toni! I agree that the best accomplishment is our children. :)

  9. Man, you have got some seriously beautiful children. Happy birthday to Carson! I would really like to have one of those cupcakes . . .

  10. Happy belated birthday cutie Carson!
    Pig sprinkles are the best thing I've ever seen!! ;)

  11. Happy (belated) birthday, Carson! Your pig sprinkles are awesome!

    I think you had a fantastically productive year. And the things you make are gorgeous! :)

  12. Happy belated birthday to your little one!

    I would guess that you were way more productive than I was plus you are raising three little ones. You should be proud of it!

    Happy New Year! I'm glad we have connected in this past year. :)

  13. What a great birthday to have! Happy birthday to Carson and Happy New Year to you and your family! And I believe you were 5 billion times more productive than me ;-)

  14. happy new year, lovely lady! and a very happy birthday to your little man :)
