The Stamp Man Award 2009

There are no prizes for the awards event apart from the actual award; it's just a nice random award for anyone that joins in with this bit of fun to take us into the New Year.

The most important part of this is that I would like you all to have fun and enjoy taking time to look back on your crafting over the last year and pick something you have made that you are particularly proud of and feel was your best work of 2009. As you go through the main blog hop you will see that the ladies you visit have shared their favourite projects with you too.

The instructions

It can be a card layout, an altered project, or even a new technique that you have mastered this year.

It must be anything crafty that you have made and designed yourself.

Post it on your blog between now and 3rd January, you don't have to make anything new, it should be something you have already made, so no pressure to make anything.

Leave a comment under this post so everyone can click on your name to come and visit your blog, it’ll then be a whole other blog hop for us to join in with to see what you have made this year too!

Once you have done this, please take this award to proudly display on your blog sidebar throughout 2010!!!

Here's my favourite project again

Click on the link HERE to go to the original post about it for more details


  1. I love this idea...a kind of show and tell of 'best' projects. Am really looking forward to seeing what people choose. I have to say, I found it hard to choose and might have to cheat and have two! Art journalling has been a fab journey for me this year but the corset round robin I did was a source of great pleasure, and I was honoured to have been included. I did plump for art journalling in the end though :)

    Thanks for the award Jill. It's a great idea :)

  2. What a lovely idea to have a look at other blogs. I found it hard to choose one project though as quite a number stick in my head.

    Here is my favourite project

    Best wishes and wishing you and yours a Happy New Year

  3. Great to see other blogs and what people crafted. I really enjoyed this Polymer Clay piece I made:

    Loads of best wished for Christmas & wishing you all a fab 2010 !

  4. Thanks for a fun blog hop Jill, I really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful work that people were kind enough to share!
    Here is my favourite project of 2009:

  5. Thanks for the hop Jill. I really enjoyed looking at all the different blogs.
    It was quite hard picking a favourite and I've reposted it as there were several projects on the same post.
    Here's the link:

  6. This is a lovely idea. It's easy to forget things you did before in the rush to always do something different. The project I chose is here.

  7. Lovely idea! I've really had to think hard about this, but came up with this! Hope you like it!

  8. Great idea. Its made me look through the last 10 months of my crafting on my blog and the one project that sticks out was my first easel card. You can find it linked at the bottom of here.

    I guess the reason why it sticks out was I didnt have any Mojo at that time of year it was really hard, with me finishing Chemo and then losing a loved one, I couldnt face it, but was so proud of the results and it cheered by mum up too! as it was her birthday card.

    Thanks for letting me share!

  23. Hi Jill,
    This is such a lovely idea. It's been interesting looking back over my creations of the past year.
    I think the highlight of my creative year has been discovering Art Journalling and starting my first art journal, so that is my choice as it's really stretching me creatively.

  31. Lovely idea, Gill and it really does make you think not only about what you've been doing throughout the year but also how your style has changed, even in that short time. Thanks for the prompt :)

    Here's mine -

  32. Great idea. I always think of this piece with fondness.

  33. This has been brilliant for me, looking through what i have done, my style has changed so much this year, sometime during september, my cards just look that more better, thanks for the blog hop as well, still working out what it means lol xx

  34. thanks for the recognition for your fans - this is such a great way for us to reflect back on the year to remember our ACCOMPLISHMENTS! it's always a crazy time during the holidays, so it's nice to remember something for which we feel particularly proud... this is my favourite project of 2009... happy holidays, Stamp Man! :)

  35. Wow! This was easier said than done. But I did finally narrow it down to one card. Here is my post. Thanks for looking! And thanks for the fun blog hop!


  36. For me it was easy to decide which was my favourite project. I found it very hard to part with this item, which for me is very unusual.

  37. very easy to decide on my favourite of 2009. I did not want to part with this.

  38. Love the idea of showing your favourite project. Not sure if it is my best but I just love the image, the DP, the colours and the style of card.

    Here it is hope you like it!
