Visits to the blog were as slow as my postings. I watched the numbers of visitors trickle in. Then bam! My numbers started going crazy. I didn't know why. I could see that people were looking a post from 2015 but didn't know why the attention.
I did a few small projects like the Craigslist night stand and mirror.
We finished the room switch upstairs with the completion of the office/music room.
Easter came and went. Then Mister called me one day in April and said something like "Did you know your blog was on Huffington Post?" What?? Wait...WHAT??? He sent me the link and there was my daughter's bedroom. Crazy, right? Turns out HP doesn't tell you when they use your work on an post; no warning, no collaborating, just boom~!
So, here are the top three posts visited this year.
#1) Bedroom #2-Reveal (actually a 12/2015 post but it took off in 2016)
#2) A Craigslist Hutch Tutorial
#3) My Summer Kitchen
Top 3 posts according to Hometalk
#1) Old Girl-New Gig, Part 3- Bathroom Makeover Completed
This was the first "job" I've ever done for someone other than myself! (And, yes, I should have ironed that shower curtain!)
#2) Evolution Of A Gallery Wall
#3) DIY Art With A Sharpie
Top 3 posts according to me (my favorites).
#1) Stay Close
#2) Dreams, Fears, Miss Mustard Seed and Me
#3) Counter Chairs
Why this one? I LOVED the fabric on these chairs, number one. Number two, I dream of someday having a beach cottage and these chairs are what I envision in my beach home. Number 3, they are fun and a big change from how they started with little money and a little work.
There you have it; a year of writing and painting and fixing and making things around my home. I wonder what the new year will bring and what I can get into. A friend stopped over recently with her sons for a Christmas visit. They were amazed that nothing had been painted recently. I reassured them that there plans in the works for a couple of rooms to get a fresh coat of new color.
Just thinking about it now makes me want to get started but first I have to put away the Christmas decor. Ugh! I don't like that part but I do like the feeling of space when everything is put away. And, school is back in full swing next week so I had better get busy!
Happy New Year to you, friend and thanks for the visits throughout the year!
