2010 Projects In Review

Yay Happy New Year! 2010 was a great year for me and my family, and I hope that 2011 holds more of the same.

When I started this blog back in April my goal was to work on and complete several projects that had been floating around in my head for a long time. Having a baby and working with a husband who works 80 hour weeks had really put a cramp in my DIY style. I decided the only way to get things done would be to make the time to work on my projects. (This includes drilling things in the middle of the night; apologies to neighbors.) And I created this blog to help keep myself accountable. I didn't have any experience with blogs before then and have learned a lot along the way.

Here are some of my projects in review.

On my original list of things to accomplish:







Improving My Sewing Skillz (Ya I spelled Skills with a Z, it makes sewing that much cooler)





Still on the List:

Learn How to Upholster



Con-Man's Desk (can't decide on a theme)



Finish the Coffee Table


And A Few things that popped up along the way:











I still have lot's more to work on including finishing our dining room, and painting our master bedroom and sunroom, ect ect. So I hope you've enjoyed the ride so far and thank you for all your support. I hope you'll stick around for some more adventures!

These are all worthwhile projects. In due time, you will complete them.Take one day and job at a time. I like the little dogie book holder. Most of all, I love the precious child. I have not been blogging but a little over two years. I learn and make mistakes every day. I have made worlds of friends and enjoy it very much. So will you. Take care and have a better 2011.
