Year in Review Part 2: My Favourite Posts of 2014

Happy New Year!  I hope every had a super fun (and safe!) New Year’s Eve!  I was in bed by 9:30, lol.

The other day I posted about my top posts of 2014, based on reader views.

Today I wanted to share my favourite posts of the year and a little insight into why they are so special.

I had such a hard time selecting 10, let along ranking them!  In no particular order, here are my 10 faves:

OOTD: Burgundy Pants & Blazer


I started getting more into fashion posts this year and this is probably the favourite outfit I’ve shared.

DIY Button Initial Artwork


This was a handmade shower gift for a very special baby girl that was super easy to make.

DIY Photo Pregnancy Announcement


My sister-in-law found out she was expecting and I was able to help her share the news with the world.

Personalized Stocking Holders


These were a great addition to our Christmas decorations and I’m sad to put them away for the year!

First Day of School Chalkboard Signs


L started Junior Kindergarten this past September and I document the occasion with a word art printable.

Kitchen Coffee Station


I created a bit more space in our kitchen by moving our kitchen cart and turning it into a coffee station.

DIY Painted Ombre Dresser


I painted the drawer fronts of an old dresser in pink ombre for L’s room.

Curtain Rod Wall Storage


I found a space-saving storage solution for all of my necklaces and other accessories like belts and scarves.

DIY Silhouette Artwork


Silhouette artwork of the girls was the perfect addition to the gallery wall I’m starting in the living room.

DIY Kids’ Artwork Display


These were a great solution to all the artwork the girls bring home from daycare and school.
