Looking Back

This time last year I was new at this whole blogging thing.
Struggling to find a way to document our lives, for the future.
My goal for this blog has always been to have a place to not forget what we have accomplished, where we have gone, and how we have grown.
So I thought I would take a moment today and look back over the last year.




I will start with getting to meet Bakerella and The Pioneer Woman all in one night,
Talk about a way to start off blogging.  My second post ever was about meeting these two.  It was a great night that I enjoyed with my sister (no we are not twins, but yes we are dressed alike).



When we decided to let our girls have separate rooms, I knew I had to make decor from what I had



Then I  added more layers to Little Sisters (my youngest daughter) bed.


My girls and I made a Valentine's banner to celebrate the true source of LOVE



Of all the crafts I have done this year, this wedding decoration I made for a sweet friend is still one of my favorites.



Who knew when I decorated this mantle,
that HGTV would be kind enough to write about it.



We had a great time making sweet bird decor for Little Sister's Birthday.



Our kitchen got a good bit of attention this year and is one of the first places in our home that is a reflection of us. The Spoon and Fork art is the perfect mix of whimsy and vintage that I was going for.


My rooster got a new modern look.



And just in case you have ever been confused about what you are suppose to do in the kitchen,
we hung a sign to make sure it was clear.



And I saved the best kitchen project for last,  the Family Recipe Wall



This chandelier has been a great addition to Big Sister's room remodel.



I even took the plunge into remodeling clothing with this shirt.  I hope to do more of this in the near future.



Big Sister had a wonderful 4th of July Birthday.




Then for Christmas I finally made new stockings and a book page wreath.



and my girls turned the kitchen into Candyland.

Thank you all for inviting me into the wonderful world of blogging.

I can't wait to see what the next year holds.
