A Year in Review

It's been a year (well yesterday it was) since I started this blog. I have learned so much about my style and have learned how to do so many things that I would have never thought to do myself. Lets take a look at some of my favorites, shall we?

Room redos:

I redid my daughter's room. This was actually my very first post!

We (and when I say we, I mean my husband) added board and batten to our study.

I totally redecorated my kitchen

We put up beadboard and totally redecorated our guest bathroom

I did a TON of prejects in my living room. They are listed all HERE

I also learned A LOT about furniture painting and refurbishing

I reupholstered my first chair

I completely re-did this table and even added shelving

I refinished and painted this old washstand

I re-did this table and started selling my furniture on craigslist

I Learned to sew like a pro (well I'm getting there)

I made my first diaper bag without a pattern

I made my first Anthro knock off purse

I made another diaper bag for a baby shower gift

I made several of these dresses as gifts

I made a few knock offs

My Anthro inspired ruffle curtain

Pottery Barn's rustic clock

Pottery Barn burlap matted frame and oversized hangers

Ballard's inspired me to paint

I used wood in my decorating

I used scrap wood to make a cool sign for my kitchen

EAT sign for my kitchen

I made a wood sign for my master bedroom

I also baked quite a bit

These caramel toffee cupcakes were to die for

I made the best brownies know to man with a made up recipe

There was quite a lot more going around here on this blog the past year, but it would take another year to show you it all :)

So take a look around if you are new around these parts and maybe you will find a project to be inspired by. I know I have been inspired over and over again in blog land. It seriously has been an awesome year. Thanks all for reading along!

It was fun to see a recap of most of your projects! It's crazy how fast the year goes and how often we feel (or I feel) like I get nothing done, but then you look back and are totally blown away by how much actually got accomplished. I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store. Especially for that little baby!
