I’m assuming all of you are out partying while I am writing this post?! And I hope you have a ton of fun!!
I thought I’d try to write just one more post before the new year rings in. This for us is going to be our most laid back New Year celebration EVER. Even when our other 2 kids were small we’d at least have a couple of friends over for a little party, but this year, with hubby still getting over a cold and flu, and me just always a little under the weather with constant headaches, and a little baby who is scared of almost everyone, we decided a night by ourselves was just what we needed… so at this moment, hubby is watching a Canucks hockey game, and I am writing this post… a little lame, I know. Long gone are the days when (since there is always a hockey game New Years Eve, us girls would make the best of it) we would draw a players number, and would have to drink a shooter every time our player would touch the puck. My best year yet was when I drew the goalies number!
So I thought I’d share with you my top blog posts in 2011! I began blogging in September, after I discovered the blogging world while researching on refinishing furniture. I was so hooked so quick, I wanted to start my own. This is definitely just a hobby for me, something fun to do just for me (and you!), and although my numbers are small compared to most bloggers, I am happy and love my little pet project!
In the past 4 months, I made 50 posts, and Because (I think) I Can was viewed about 2800 times! My busiest day was November 30th with 140 views… personally, I find it shocking that many viewers would have any interest in what I have to say! The most popular post that day was A Teacher’s Christmas Gift.
So here you are, my top 5:
5. Meet A Table Named Abby.
This was one of my favorite projects for sure. Abby is still here, upstairs showing off her gorgeousness. Hubby and I are not disappointed she has not sold yet, we both love her so much!
4. The Perfect Crib Mobile.
Yes, again, very proud of myself. Anyone who knows me knows that me with fabric and thread is a bit of a joke. So when my friends see this mobile in person, they are a little shocked! But I wanted this bird mobile badly for my baby, and I love how she squeals with delight every time I play it for her! Plus, this was my second posting ever, so it’s cool it makes the top 5.
3. For The Love of Mason Jars.
This really has nothing to do with me. Without knowing it I had chosen some very popular pictures of Mason Jars, and “Mason Jars” happens to be googled a lot, which brought me more traffic!
2. What was I thinking?!
This beast definitely got a lot of attention! The desk is still downstairs in the playroom, shoved to the side, as I have to put him on hold until the New Year. I look forward to getting on my mouth mask, safety glasses and gloves, and sanding this baby down and making him gorgeous once again. I have big dreams for his future!
And number 1. A teacher’s Christmas Gift!
I was so happy with the response I got on this one. It was my first attempt on making a board sign, after drooling over so many in blogland and on Pinterest… I loved the way it turned out, and loved all of your responses even more, thank you for that! I have since made many more board signs, and will share them with you in the new year (when the kids are back in school and my life is back under control!)
But our personal biggest achievement in 2011 was the arrival of this little superstar!
This little beauty turned 7 months on Christmas Day, and is such an amazing little person. She couldn’t have made it easier to have a third baby!
Thank you for reading my blog, & following if you are a follower. I truly appreciate all of the support! So from my family to yours…
