I haven’t really made a big deal about 2012. In fact, I spent the first half of it on the couch in a daze. I think it was a post holiday slump. But I’ve gotten up, gone for some runs, participated in some Zumba, and now I’m ready to face the year. Or at least the month of January.
But rather than looking back, I have some predictions for what’s going to be hot in 2012. Um, and I’m gonna’ say most of them are things I’ve thought were hot in 2011. I CAN’T HELP HOW FORWARD THINKING I AM! So here we go…
ALISON’S TREND WATCH FOR 2012
1. Alison on the tiny screen
In 2012 I’m going to be focusing on more videos, and moving my site from more of a blog to a vlog. If you hate this idea I’m sorry. Sorry that you aren’t ready to party with me and my fur (faux…geez) coat!
2. Fifth & Hazel
How freaking cute is this desk calendar? You might remember Fifth & Hazel’s awesome wrapping paper too? I mean, Melanie has been hot for a while now. She’s a pretty big deal. But her blog and shop are really picking up, and I feel like 2012 is going to catapult her into another galaxy! I’m having her redesign my site! And I highly recommend her for all design projects. I can’t wait to reveal it to you.
3. Tiny Plastic Animals
First watch this (if you haven’t already) so you can understand why this title is genius.
4. 90’s TV shows
5. Lame Dance Moves
I have been BUSTING THESE OUT FOR YEARS. But Robyn comes along and now it’s like all the rage. Seriously you guys, I think she’s been spying on me, these were all my moves! My sister and high school friends can vouch for me. Plus I own those pants.
You know how cupcakes were hot. Then cake pops, then donuts? Or, they were for me at least. Well, I’m going to single handedly (unless you’ll help) put the sexy back in pie. I have some pie projects planned. The one pictured above is a Pony Pie. Not my finest crust, but I used only the freshest ponies. Neeeeigh.
7. Crafts involving wood
Remember how I made these magnets from old wood blocks? I’ve been obsessed with up-cycling wood lately, and I’ve seen some other awesome projects. Check out this little stacking puzzle from Mer-Mag, and this sexy cutting board from Fatto Nello Utah.
8. Tiny Party Hats

Wait…Alison, didn’t you make these Fancy Party Hats for Gigi’s 1st Birthday party? Yes, I did. But I love how Hannah has updated them with these flashy colors! GO CHECK OUT how Hannah and her family used these to ring in the new year!
9. Hunger Games
I don’t usually get into huge trendy books, but I listened to all 3 of these and I’m SO freaking excited for the movie I cannot wait.
I totally owe the world some more momiform photos. Just know it’s been seeing a lot of action. And I think this is the year the rest of the world is going to get behind the jumpsuit!
Alright! What do you think about my 2012 trend predictions? Do you have any of your own?!
