Wow! What a great year 2017 has been! And how fast it went!
Do you feel the same after you turn a page and you start a new year? I always feel the same way. And every year I tell myself the things I will try to accomplish and of course half of them won’t happen. But I don’t complain, I still get a lot done, and I am the happiest mom as I have healthy kids and all that matters, right?
My sweet friend, Cami from Tidbits invited me to participate in a fun blog hop so I joined forces with some other fabulous bloggers to reflect back to the past year and show off our TOP 10 posts.
Here we go!
Let’s start with the most popular post!
Not surprised at all! The OH so popular Arm Knit blanket! Guys! I never thought it would be such a favorite post. It went viral on Pinterest a few days after I posted the tutorial. I loved arm knitting this blanket, so I decided to give another try with a different material later last year (in December). Arm knitting is so fun so if you have not tried it yet be sure to give it a go in 2018!
I started playing with macrame back in March when a sad family event happened in my life, and it indeed helped me to get through the days. Macrame is an enjoyable, fascinating art. I could not be more addicted to it. I loved creating macrame so much that I started selling my plant hangers and wall hangings in my Etsy in 2017. If you want to start a new hobby, this has got to be it!
This has got to be the best of out DIY just yet! Kidding you not! It was a massive project, but it was worth all the hard work as we created an outdoor paradise and we truly loved spending time out there during the summer and fall months. One of my favorite spaces we have created!
I have done a few bathroom updates so far, and this made it to the TOP 10 last year. It was a low key makeover on the budget, but we could not love it more! Check it out for inspiration!
I love me some pillows around the house! Way too many pillows haha! I shared the tutorial on how to make one zippered one, and it was a hit since it made it to the top 10 posts.
The most practical project we have ever done!!! Hands down! And it is an understatement if I say that this is everyone’s most favorite spot in the house!
What a fun project this was! Loved making this giant wall for my son’s room. I am making another one for my older son’s room makeover this year. Hopefully around the summer months or sooner! It’s easy, practical and looks super fun! Make it yours!
It’s funny as people always ask me if there is anything I can not do? Oh yes! I am terrible at the organizing field! I mean, TERRIBLE! So when I happened to organize anything around here, I proudly post about it. This is how this post came to live. I desperately needed to purge my closet (which is by the way overdue again), and I just shared how I did it. You guys seemed to love the tips! Check it out!
A lovely home tour! I loved this look! I want all of it back haha! Ghaw, why do I always change things around? The room looks different now and now looking back at this pretty scene I am not even crazy about our current look. (Check on Insta to keep my interior changes up to date :-))
The original version of this funky shelf was always in the top posts since I wrote a tutorial on it in 2015. Then as I learned into macrame this past year, I came up with the macrame hanger version fit and posted about it. It’s one of my favorite projects, and now it’s available in my store as well.
Well! I think it’s safe to say that we had a very productive year and we have got a lot done and behind. I love that this little wee blog of mine brings the most amazing opportunities and that you keep reading along it’s fascinating! Keep coming back to check the latest and greatest this year and be sure to check out some pretty fantastic TOP 10 posts by my TOP NOTCH FRIENDS!
ENJOY THE TOUR!
