In honor of the new year I thought I’d write a post about my 2011, Wow you are thinking I’m a genius over here aren’t ya?  Many bloggers are doing it and I think it's a fabulous idea.

Most page views

Pinterest has given me tons of page views on this one, which is just crazy awesome.  I never would've thought this would be my most viewed post. 

Most Comments

I thought people would think I was crazy for recovering it, I almost didn't post it.

My favorite projects of 2011

I love them all but if I had to pick a few I pick these. 

Still haven't made a new cushion for this...... 


I drive past the garage every day, I still can't believe how this area has changed, I love it. 

Because she loves her kitchen now and that just makes me happy.  If you missed the before you must check it out.

I just love that a little paint can turn an ugly old box into something that makes me smile. 

To see all my DIY projects you can click on project gallery at the top of my blog.

I started my blog in January so it will soon be my one year blogiversary.  I can't believe it's been a year.  What ever did I do with my free time before?

We all know blogging can be hard on a persons self esteem with all the perfectly decorated beautiful homes out there that I'm sure are always clean.  I confess mine is not perfectly decorated or clean most days but there are moments of pretty.   I read all kinds of different blogs and I take a little bit from each one.  I hope somebody somewhere takes a little something from me too, that's what it's all about right? 

Thank you for reading, for your comments, and for your posts that inspire me.

love your post, I agree that is is sometimes hard to see others perfect or seemingly perfect homes on blogs but I try to just learn from them and have also come to realize that a lot of these people are also professionals! Love your blog and all of your projects, can't wait to read more in the new year:)

All your projects are fabulous. Your such a handy girl to have around, LOL. If I had to pick a favorite I'd say the garage trellis is it . . . or maybe the kitchen makeover . . . no the banquette . . . Uhhhhh, OK final choice - - the trellis. LOL

Happy New Year! I actually sat one of my colleagues down at the computer to show her your blog....a few months back. Several of your favourites were mine too and I wanted her to see all the possibilities before her as a young new homeowner. She is probably stalking, a bit shy, but your blog is inspiring people....just know that!
