Just a few more days until a brand new year. Don't ya just love a new start? The end of the year is also a time of reflections for me; I like to look back over what was accomplished. I even forgot about a few of the projects I did this past year. Must be getting old ;)
The Two pillows I made for the vintage chairs in my Foyer were easy to make. I'm hoping to do a few more simple sewing projects in 2013.
Another easy project for January was a wood sign made from a leftover 2 x 6.
The post on how to make Wax Paper Crayon Hearts was viewed 12,500 times. I was surprised at the count since it was such a simple craft.
I had fun making some Valentine Hearts. These were made with vintage fabric that my grandmother made me a dress out of when I was 8 years old.
Raised beds in our North Garden were finished in March.
My Wax Paper Transfer project was really fun. Thank you Graphics Fairy!
I made some Pretty Little Pillows for our daughter in California in June.
One of my favorite projects of the year was the Jewelry Organizer Mr. Fanatic and I made for our youngest daughter.
I was so happy to show you our New Paint For The Family Room... It only took me several years to pick a color. lol.
Who doesn't love a super easy paint makeover? The Painted Side Table on our basement patio got a fresh coat of paint last summer.
Everyone seemed to love Make A Basket From A Wine Box and Baskets Made From Cardboard Boxes, as they have been viewed over 59,000 times. Whooda thunk?
Spent some time in the kitchen sharing How To Dry Basil that I grew in my herb garden. I dried enough to last me until the next harvest. In just a few months, it will be time to start thinking about the Spring garden.
Making Homemade Vanilla Extract couldn't be easier.
I must have struck a nerve in October with How To Store Your Stuff because it was clicked on 63,000 times. Guess there are lots of people who have a bunch of stuff to store!
We're all still loving the Solar Tube Mr. Fanatic installed in our upstairs bath. The light it brings into the room is fantastic.
Finally, Christmas decorating in December. My favorite room to decorate is our Breakfast Room.
Fortunately for ya'll, I've left a few projects out, otherwise, we could be here for hours.
Even though we built our Barn Doors for the Basement, I haven't shared them yet because there's still a debate on diy Design Fanatic Facebook page and at Casa Fanatic about which door pulls to choose. I shared this photo the other day, which shows a peek of the Barn Doors in our Basement Family Room. Hopefully, you will see them all finished soon!
Thank you all for stopping by all these months and for leaving your nice comments. Ya'll are just too nice.
I am so grateful to have so many wonderful blog friends and I'm looking forward to "meeting" some new friends in 2013.
Happy New Year to you and your family!
