2012 in Review

2012 did not start out with all the bells and whistles I had hoped for.
I lost my crafting space when my ex husband had to move back in to the craft room/guest room.
 But in February came my discovery and addiction to all things Jeanne D'Arc Living.
Then I found this beautiful necklace while junkin 
{aka dumpster diving}

I shared my $200 kitchen make over
My front porch make over with trash finds
Started making my own soaps.

Did my first really big market that led to oh so many more!

Shared photos of my garden and planted 20 lavender plants.

Went to the strawberry farm and made my own jam.
Had photographers come out to do a photo shoot of my house.

Learned more about my houses 100 year old history

FINALLY finished my daughters room.

Made our yearly trip to the apple orchard.

Had the house featured in Creating Vintage Charm Magazine

Had an awesome Halloween Party
Started a bathroom re-do
Got a feature in Romantic Homes Magazine

Shared my quirky facts

Took you on a Christmas house tour

And finally got my new vintage camper home
Over all it was an amazing year and I thank you all for following me along the way!

  6. Sorry, the last post had too many typos! I was just saying how much I enjoy your blog, your strength shines through the changes that you endured this year. Congrats on your magazine features! My dream is to have a feature as well! I think my bedroom really has the potential but I need to have a professional shoot, as my pictures never do my rooms any justice. You can see the bedroom on my recent post. I think it would be a great room for the Creating Vintage Charm magazine too.
    I am so interested in how your lavender plants fared, and your experience with making soap (both goals for me in 2013. Ican't wait to get started. I even bought some cheap Yardley of London lavender soap this evening just to hold me over!
    Good luck in 2013. I will be following along gaining inspiration as always!

  7. You have worked so hard this year, my friend. I'm so happy for you that you've received well-deserved recognition for your talent. You rock out loud! I want to see that camper. You must have posted about it while we were gone.
