My Favorite Posts of 2010

There seems to be a theme floating around Blog Land.
Lots of bloggers are looking back at their posts from 2010 and selecting some for a year review.
Not wanting to be left out, I thought I'd share mine as well - a post from each month. 
(If you want to read the post, just click on the name of the month)

January - I finally found a paint color I love for my downstairs bathroom.  Hurray!!

February - My cabin fever resulted in my first upcycled
purse which started my inventory for an Etsy shop.  Since then, I've moved on to aprons and pins with more fun things to come.

March -  I added aprons to the Etsy shop.  This mother/daughter set is still one of my favorites.

April - I had a lot of fun with a "trash to treasure" project.


April #2 - Well, I couldn't pick just one project for April because fixing up my laundry room was a big deal.

May - Repurposing the bottom of an old hutch was a nice addition to my back porch.

June - In this post, I shared some of the changes I've been making with my health and diet.  It must have touched a nerve because many of you commented and emailed me to ask questions.  I hope to share more in the future as I learn more.

July - Wow, this one was a hum-dinger.  You all were so encouraging and sweet to me during this time.  It's amazing how God can use people I've never met to help me.  I'm so thankful for all of you.

August - Back to work.  I enjoyed making slipcovers out of some upcycled fabric. 

September - I had my first real "give-away" to celebrate my 300th blog post.  I still haven't gotten any Baby Button Nests into the Etsy shop.  I keep giving them away as gifts!

  October - Well, all I can say is wedding, wedding, wedding.  I did a small series of posts about how we pulled off a beautiful outdoor wedding for our youngest daughter.

November - My Christmas present this year was to get a work surface and proper storage for my craft room.  It's still a work in progress, but I love this room.

December - Well, how fitting that I would end the year with a revamped thrift store find.  My little red lantern is now a perfect accessory in our home.

  1. Hi Kelly,
    You have been busy this last year, I really like your bathroom, your blue tub is gorgeous!
    Your purse and aprons are darling, as well as the wonderful pillows, are they made out of burlap?
    How nice that you have a new laundry room, that is a very important room, I think. One day, my hubby hopes to make mine nice.
    I love that footstool!
    I'm sure your daughter's wedding was beautiful and your lantern is lovely! I love lanterns.
    Happy New Year!
    Hugs, Cindy

    And my mom though those bird nests were ADORABLE! They're hanging on her tree right now since the boys can reach every part of my tree and I just know they'd tear them apart...I don't think she's gonna give them back hehe.
