A Grace Full Life: Favorite Projects of 2012


Favorite Projects of 2012

Wow, can you believe 2013 is almost here?
I am still having trouble writing 2012 on my checks.

This year has been a pretty amazing year in my blogging bubble for so many reasons....
BlogHer adopting me, meeting amazing new blog friends in person (they actually do exist!) and meeting all of you new friends who come to my blog online.
 I love this little blog and I love that you all are such great supporters of it.
Sometimes I feel like you have just as much of a vested interest in this project of mine as I do and that makes me feel so good, you just have no idea.
Thank you all, yes you right there in the sweatpants holding the pint of Haagan Dazs....thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Here are some of my fave projects of the year 2012.
And maybe you will remember some of them....

Pom Pom Wreath

Pom poms make me happy.
So does wine but I don't know how to create a wine bottle wreath.
Don't think I am not trying to work on that either.

The Basement Redo

Creating a space for the dumping of stuff that won't go anywhere else in the house.

My Rolling Island ala Goodwill

Our possessed Goodwill rolling island.

Kitchen Chairs

My roadside chairs got a much needed makeover.
But they now need a fresh coat of paint as of the writing of this post.
Because off white paint + 2 kids + food = what the heck was I thinking??

The Record Cabinet

I turned an old record cabinet (records? what is a record??) into a cool piece of retro furniture.
Replacing me as the only retro thing in my kitchen. 

Summer To Do List

A fun to do list made out of a piece of 90s artwork.
And I got to write with chalk, which is always a plus.

Annie's Night Stand

My first mod podge furniture craft.
Don't look too closely.

Black Doors

Replacing the smudges and smears on our white doors.
With scrapes and scrapes on our black doors.

Our Bathroom


The only place I can go for peace and quiet in my home.
I am a mom.
There is no place like that in my home.

The Girls Bath

Making the toothpaste stains and puddles on the floor look classy.
Since 2012.

The Kitchen

Creating a relaxing place in the room of my home where I spend more time than any other.
And it makes the food taste better now too.

And the winner of my all time fave post I have written to date and my least fave project that I love to pieces is:

The Curtains

I love this post so much.
I wrote it in an hour.
And those curtains?
Still up, still love them but they are falling apart.

Click on the links above to be taken to the individual posts and point, giggle and stare at my attempts to be cheap and crafty. I hope you will be entertained and learn how NOT to do DIY from my blog.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and we will be traveling to Tennessee in a few days (squeal!) so I just wanted to wish all of you Merry Christmas! Enjoy your families and friends and give them all big hugs from me, kay?
