2015 sure went by in a flash! My baby turned one and my first baby became a kindergartener! I experienced a huge shift in contributor work (I went from tons, too much really, to a manageable amount). The blog didn't see the attention it deserved last year, and I have big exciting plans to change that in 2016! While I didn't get the chance to make and share as much as I'd hoped there are five projects that really stick out. So without further ado, in case you missed them or want to add them to you 2016 to-make list, here are the five best posts of 2015:
Simple Ribbed Knit Hat - This has quickly become my go-to hat knitting pattern. It's easy, cute, and offers up lots of variety. If you're new to knitting or want a super quick project, this pattern won't let you down!
Stamped Dish Towels - I love making beautiful useful things. I especially love when I can make said things with my little ones. Jude and I had a blast creating these tea towels and they make me smile each time I use them to dry the dishes or wipe Ronan's sticky face.
New Studio Space - If I had to choose one favorite project from 2015, this would be it. It took lots of hard work, but I love that my family has a studio space, even if it is in the garage. Plus, making this creative space meant less toys and mess in the house, I still can't believe I have a real grown up living room!
Mini Dutch Door - File this project under my husband is rad. This door gets so much play! Ronan and Jude both love it! Jude discovered that it makes a pretty great puppet theater too!
Mini Pineapple Air Plant Holders - Cutest DIY goes to these adorable air plant holders. They sit on the window sill above my kitchen sink and it almost makes the endless parade of dishes worth it. Seriously, it's hard to look at these without smiling.
One last set of projects that I am super proud of are the Drop Cloth Projects I did for the DIY Network. We still use all of them regularly and they've held up super well!
Wishing you and yours a beautiful and bountiful 2016! May it be the best year yet!! Happy New Year!!!
