Happy New Year! I have taken a bit of a break from posting it seems. December already passed by and we are already in 2013! It sounds so weird to say, I'll probably still be writing 2012 on everything in March, lol. I had such a nice Christmas break spending time with my family, and I was off work for 2 weeks which was really nice too. :)
Now that I am back at work, and that is where I do most of my posting, I can finally post my favorite projects from 2012!
This year seriously flew, it seems like every year they go faster than before. But when I was looking back through my posts, some of them felt like I did them more than a year ago! So anyway, here they are, a look back at my favorite and most popular posts from 2012.
At the first of the year last year I made this colorful HAPPY BIRTHDAY WREATH. I just love the texture of the felt and the asymmetry. I actually gave this as a gift, and kinda wish I still had it. ;)
I gave an old brown jewelry box from the Goodwill a makeover, although I couldn't ever convince my husband to put his watches and ring in there. Hmm.
This BOOK PAGE LETTER was one of my favorites because it was so easy, just a $2 cardboard letter and pages from a book I found at a garage sale. Simple and personalized!
I updated my bathroom from dark to light and used frames from the thrift store to make SIMPLE AND CHEAP WALL DECOR.
This is one of my favorite rooms in our house, probably because its completely finished, decor wise, Im never fully satisfied with the other rooms in my house, it's always a work in progress! But this one I love!
I seriously love this SPRING SIGN, the bunnies are made out of cardboard, which in turn made this super cheap! Are you sensing a theme here...? That I really like making things cheaply? :) This makes me excited for Spring just looking at it! lol
My friend had a baby at the beginning of the summer so I made this little gift basket with little baby pool essentials, swim suit, towel, sunglasses, and toys! I added his name to a bucket from Hobby Lobby to personalize it. Fun in the Sun! :)
And finally, I used some more book pages to make this BOOK PAGE WREATH.
Oh wait, here's another one that was pinned quite a bit, I love it too! SCRAP PAPER ART
I was feeling really inspired at the beginning of last year, I had a lot of ideas that I had fun doing, but then towards the last half of the year I felt like I was just doing stuff just to have something to post about. That's not what I want to do this year, I want to make things and share them because I like to do it not because I feel like I have to.
I am feeling inspired already though so stay tuned :) Thank you for all your comments and following along this past year!!
