Top 10(ish) of '11 On the V Side

Hard to believe the year is already coming to a close, but well, here we are!
Time marches on, and all that stuff.
Last year I had fun combing through the year's worth of projects for Rhoda's Year End Party, and it's no surprise I've enjoyed doing the same again this year.  It's a nice way to catalog what I've been up to, and hey - it's a little boost for the ego to prove I haven't been *entirely* lazy all year long.  One of the perks of having a blog, I guess. ; )

So let's take a stroll down 2011 Memory Lane, shall we?
Without giving you some self-aggrandizing (and frankly, boring) commentary on each project/month... Here's a list of the most popular posts from each month in 2011.
Thanks, and Enjoy!
