10.  Duct Tape Dress Form

Made from PVC, an old tree stand, and lots of duct tape, I can see why so many people flocked to this unexpected tutorial!


9.  How to Preserve a 25-Year-Old Cheeseball in Resin

Well, really?  Who WOULDN’T want to read about how to save a quarter-century-old food item for posterity?  (My mom really did this project; I just wrote about it.  Nice work, MOM!)  Thanks to Cake Wrecks for featuring it on their facebook page.


8.  Mad in Crafts Work Room

My work space might not be fit for the cover of a home décor magazine, but it is functional and colorful!  Thanks to Plutonium Paint for cross-promoting my craft table redo!


7.  Space Geek Bedroom

Who knew so many of you were sci-fi nerds too?!  Thank you to Epbot and Apartment Therapy for features.


6.  Party Streamer Seed Tape

I originally created this tutorial for a Brassy Apple series, so I was surprised it was still popular as a repost here on Mad in Crafts!  Big thanks to Dollar Store Crafts for featuring the project!


5.  Faux Bois Mirrors

This was my project entry for the Hardware Challenge on my season of So You Think You’re Crafty.  I didn’t win, but I am glad you still liked the idea!  Thanks to FaveCrafts for featuring the tutorial!


4.   PVC Craft Shelves

I gave my dad the idea for these shelves and then he engineered, built and hung them for me.  What a dad!  And a great project, if I do say so myself.  Thank you, CRAFT and Craft Cave for featuring it!


3.  TARDIS Closet

A love letter to all things Doctor Who, this TARDIS closet was one of my favorite projects too!  Thanks to Forever Geek and CRAFT for featuring the TARDIS.


2.  Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast!  Of course this post was a winner.  ;)  The recipe was shared on RecipeLion and Home Stories A to Z also featured the recipe.


1.  Fire & Ice Lanterns

And the most popular post of the year was for my Fire & Ice Lanterns made with materials from the dollar store!  They would look great greeting your guests for a New Year’s Eve party (hint hint)  Thanks to FaveCrafts for featuring this tutorial

Thank you so much for your readership, for your kind comments, and for sharing my projects with friends.  You are what make Mad in Crafts successful and you are what makes me love blogging.  I  hope you will stick with me through 2013 and beyond!

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!
