As the year comes to a close I thought it would be a good time to look back at some of my favorite things of 2011. Today I’d like to share;
My favorite products of 2011
Like last time there are two products that stood out for me this year.
First place by a country mile is; Serif Craft Artist software.
I adore this product as it is so simple to use but has so much versatility and superb digikits. It has a lot of the features of products like Adobe Photoshop Elements but without the HUGE learning curve.
My wonderful husband gave me a copy of this and I’ve had so much fun with it this year and have collected lots of digikits. I love to use it to try out ideas and techniques and especially love that all the wonderful elements can be used over and over again, which when you are on a small budget makes a big difference. Serif have digi kits on their Daisy Trail site and some of them are even free Perfect when you want to treat yourself but the budget says no.
In second place; Brittany Birch knitting needles
Trying to knit with RSI is foolish! It hurts, but if you are mad enough to risk it, try these birch needles. I can only knit a row or two at a time and have to rest for some time between attempts but these needles are warm to the touch and so much kinder to the hands than anything else. Super smooth like metal no drag like plastic and they are nice and light to hold too.
How about you?
Those were my favourites of the year, but how about you, what product have you tried this year and now love? Would love to hear about it.
