It’s here. Tonight is the night when we cheer and laugh, raise toasts, some will play games, some will attend parties, some may fall asleep long before the bells start to ring, but either way it is the last day of 2012 and 2013 begins.
2012 has been a wonderful year, for me personally and for this little ol’ blog. I wanted to do a little recap of some of my favorite posts and some of your favorite posts throughout the last year.
In January I shared this Splish Splash Baby Shower Gift Basket and interestingly enough it is one of the most popular gift baskets I have done to date. I guess everyone loves the smell of a warm, clean baby as much as I do!
February was a busy month for us as we started packing up our stuff to move to a new apartment that was closer to Sam’s new job. It also brought lots of little treat tags like the Hug & a Kiss Tags, Honey Bun Tags, and the Tweet Toppers.
March also brought one of the most popular gift baskets in the form of the Couch Potato for a day.
In April I was able to share some of the decorating I had finished in our new place and offered some tips on decorating your own bookcase.
In April I also shared what was to become my most popular post. When I posted this simple, five ingredient recipe I had no idea it would quickly become the most viewed post on this blog, or that it would be so controversial. Here’s a hint: If you have a thing against “cream of soups” than don’t read it and don’t send me nasty emails, mkay? Thanks.
In May I did one of my favorite before and afters, and it is also one of the quickest and easiest as well! The tray re-do might be a simple, little project but we use this tray almost every day and it makes me happy. :)
In June Sam and I celebrated our 6th anniversary with a trip to New York and the Lion King on Broadway. This guy right here. I sure love him.
July brought in the Olympics which is one of my very favorite things! We talked about hosting an Olympic activity and all that you need to get ready for the big event.
We were busy in September working on different home projects like our DIY entryway bench that we made from mostly scrap wood.
I also made some pillows out of dish towels for the bench which was a cheap and easy project!
We got ready for Thanksgiving and all the upcoming holidays with some Party Planning 101
and I shared some fun printable placemats that you can use for your kids Thanksgiving table.
It has been a wonderful year and I cannot let it end without giving my heartfelt thanks to YOU, my readers. I so appreciate you following along with me on my DIY-ing and crafting journey and for all the support you send. I hope that each one of you has a safe, happy, and wonderful New Year!
