I have had a wonderful time sharing this blog with you all throughout the year and am always amazed to see how many people actually read it. Comments are somewhat of a rarity for me but I know I've had plenty of visitors. (I would love to hear who you are - please leave me a note some time and let me know you visited!)
My intention was always for this blog to be more than just cookies and based on my top 10 most popular posts from 2011, it looks like you all agree. So let's take a trip down memory lane and see what you all enjoyed the most!
1.) Hands down my most popular post was the peppermint wreath. I've seen two of them so far that have been made from the post but would love to see some more. Please feel free to post them on my Facebook page!
2.)The Mason Jar Snow Globes were also very popular. I had a teacher send me a photo of her whole class making them. They can really be adapted to anything you like and are easy to do!
3.) Apparently I am not the only one who loves Ribbon Topiaries. I'm thinking I need to make one for Valentine's Day soon!
4.) Cake Pops continue to be the rage and it appears my readers agree.
5.) The Grosgrain Ribbon Notebook I made for a friend proved popular.
6.) As did the Easy Oreo Truffles and Truffle TREE!
7.) Who doesn't love a story of a miracle complete with a party hat and cookies?
8.) The storybook character cookies were quite popular (round two of those coming soon!)
9.) It seems as though we all enjoy a good summer BBQ...complete with "hamburger cupcakes" and "watermelon cookies." (My friend made the cupcakes all the way in Italy - loved that!)
10.) Finally, to my surprise, the photos from our "preppy wedding" were the tenth most popular post of 2011. That works for me, since almost five years later I still love to look at the photos too. :)
I am so appreciative of you all reading and enjoying One Preppy Cookie throughout the year. This has been a wonderful creative outlet for me and I've enjoyed connecting with so many of you. Thank you!
