A Year in Review: Favorite Crafty Projects From 2013

My brother-in-law is getting married today! To a great girl that we’re all thrilled to have join our family. Many festivities going on over here.

For today’s post, I’m continuing with the theme of ‘favorites’ and reflecting on a year in review by sharing a few of my very favorite craft projects from 2013 (yesterday was all about food and favorite recipes). As I was preparing to write this post though, I must admit that I was getting a little nervous (and maybe even a little disappointed…) in what I’d be putting together. See, with so many baby-school-job-family related activities this last year, it has felt like we haven’t accomplished that much in terms of big home projects for our little 1930’s casita, or even in the little diy department (the ‘weekend’ fun stuff).

But ah what a little reflection will do to your perspective! After looking back on the crafty projects we didmanage to squeeze in (and I mean more of the non-house related stuff at the moment), I’m feeling much better about the time and energy we dedicated to the creative in 2013. Funny how a little reflection will do that.

I also redesigned the blog this year, which was a BIG project!

Call me cheesy, but this may have been the best project of the year.

    I just discovered your great blog. Wow! It has given me tons of ideas. What was the taste test result of your homemade vanilla extract? Which liquid did you end up liking the best?

      Hi Carol! That’s a good question. It’s very much a taste preference but I think that the majority of users prefer the vodka to bourbon because it tastes a little less alcohol-y.
