Hey there friends!! Just about everywhere you look on the internet and social media, people are cleaning up and cleaning out. De-cluttering, purging, organizing, all the things! And, man oh man do I love it! I don’t know what it is about the first of the year that makes people go crazy with the STUFF in their house! HAHA! Maybe it’s the extra decor we have around for a month before Christmas. Maybe it’s all the things (gifts) that come into our home at Christmas. Maybe it’s just the idea of a new year and a need for a new start. No matter what the reason, have you caught the bug??
Do you choose a word of the year? I have a couple of times in the past, but it’s been a while. A few months ago at a women’s event at our church, the speaker encouraged us to pray and ask God to give us a word for 2019. So, I did.
A new year! Each year I’m amazed at how much faster the time passes. I guess maybe that’s part of getting older. 😆 A few months ago one of my favorite instagrammers, Holly from ourfauxfarmhouse, was talking about how she and her hubby sometimes only finish most projects 95%, and I totally relate! So, my #1 goal for 2019 is to move from 95% done to 100% done in every room!
What a year it has been! I love all things DIY and design and I love sharing with you! I appreciate each and every one of you for following along! Whether you are a new follower or one of the faithful few that have been here from the beginning (almost 6 1/2 years ago 😯 ). Like most people, I like to take some time at the end of each year to look back and see how far we’ve come, the things we’ve accomplished, and even the things that didn’t quite go as planned. So today I’m sharing the 10 posts that y’all enjoyed the most! Again, thanks for reading!
Hey friends! I totally had on my calendar to do a post on the Christmas candy I made yesterday. But, I kept it pretty basic this year, meaning no new recipes, so you can catch that here in this post if you’re curious. 🙂 I’ve had several friends ask me what I buy after Christmas, so, instead I thought I would talk about that! What I shop for and where I shop. Some places might surprise you. 😉 I honestly like after-Christmas-clearance shopping more than black Friday shopping! No, really!!
