Looking back on 2012, I am so glad that I started this blog. It was a strange thing for me to do considering the fact that I just recently discovered what a blog was but it has allowed me to express my love of decorating while still being able to stay home with my kids and have a flexible schedule. It is definitely not a money maker, or at least it hasn't been so far, but that was never my intention for the blog anyway. I enjoy sharing information and having an outlet for my passion in decorating and it has been a bonus to realize the sense of community with other bloggers. I really enjoy connecting with others that I don't even know that share my passion.
I am still learning a lot about the technical side of blogging, HTML, linky parties, buttons, etc. I have learned a lot of new vocabulary and still have a lot to learn but I hope you'll stick with me this next year because I still have more to share with you.
I wanted to show a recap of the last three months in case you missed something that you might be interested in. I don't always share all of my blog posts on facebook, (I know some of my friends follow me there.) so if you'd like to never miss a post again, you can subscribe by email or better yet, join through google friends on my sidebar. I love having new friends!!! Here are some of my favorites of the year and some of the more popular posts.
Some of my favorite DIY's:
|The DIY table runner made out of drop cloth with painted stencils.|
|The chalkboard wall with molding.|
|DIY bulletin board with burlap, rope and brass tacks.|
|The decoupaged dresser with coastal maps and boat cleats.|
My Favorite ideas:
|Adding hooks to a shutter for outdoor towel storage and drying.|
Adding fabric to the back of an armoire to hide a hole and to add interest.
