Top Posts of 2012

Hey everyone! Sometimes, it's fun to look back on your year and see what you've accomplished. I decided to try it out and was kind of surprised at the popular posts. Some brought back fun memories and some brought back some laughs. It's always great to lets get started!

6. Yummy Squares

This is a post near and dear to my heart. The recipe is from my Grandmother and so simple--only 4 ingredients! We like to make these for friends and family during the holidays. And maybe in between for us as well. 

I love me a furniture re-do and I especially love making over stuff for friends and family. This little end table was super fun and went through quite a transformation. Click on the link to see the before! I love the metallic stripes, this was such a fun project! I'm itching for another one....itching....

4.  Stenciled Canvas Pillows

Pair a couple of my favorite things together - paint and canvas - and you end up with these awesome stenciled pillows (stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils). I love the pattern and the fact that they were made with a canvas drop cloth (which also made about a dozen other projects...check some out here, here and here), was an added bonus as well.

3. End of Year Teacher Frames

Every year I wait until the last second to get a teacher gift together for the wonderful people who have taught my children all year long. I don't know why I do this...I think I might be losing my mind a bit...but, this year was a fun gift with this wonderful quote and fun spray paint colors. A win-win.

2.  Tree Bookshelf

I like to feature not only my own projects but my talented family's as well. My brother is a contractor and made this tree bookshelf for his daughter's room. I LOVE this and wish he lived about 1,000 miles closer to build one for my house. I think it would be worth a trip for him to come up here just for this....!

1.  How to Hem Pants with the Original Hem

And finally, I am pretty shocked to see that this post has already hit almost 10,000 views! I've been hemming my pants with this little method for a long time now and am so happy to spread the helpful tip around!

There you have it! The top posts of 2012. What a fun year! I'm excited to see what's in store this year as well. I hope you are, too! What are your favorites from last year?
