Happy New Years!

 

Thought I would fit one last post in for this year, I can’t believe it!  I started this blog March 3, 2012, and have loved every minute I have spent working on it. I haven’t kept up with it very well in the past couple months, because we have been getting ready for something big. I’m not going to say what it is yet, but I will probably tell you in January. So, one of my New Years Resolutions is to grow my blog and business. That means keeping up with my blog, even if I do get busy, and keeping up with my Etsy shop, posting new products as often as I can. I got an e-mail the other day from wordpress showing me how my blog did this year. It was viewed 1,300 times this year! Thanks to all of my wonderful readers! I can’t wait for this year, I’ll be 16 in July and there is hopefully a big change for our family. I’m not sure what my favorite post was, it’s hard to choose! Comment below and let me know what your favorite post was this year! It’s kind of weird to look back and read some of them. It’s almost midnight so I better go, until next year, goodbye!

White Christmas

I can’t believe Christmas is over and it’s almost 2013! The house always feels so empty when the decorations come down. We actually had a white Christmas, which is pretty special especially when you live somewhere where it doesn’t snow very often, and when it does it’s no more than 3 inches and it melts pretty fast, but this time we got close to 10 inches of snow! It was so pretty, the trees look beautiful covered in snow.

Molly loves the snow, but Dixie isn’t so sure about it.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Christmas Pin Faves

I’m still here, I’ve been so busy making Christmas gifts that I just haven’t kept up with my blog. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year, I love baking cookies, and making all kinds of fun Christmas crafts, and listening to Christmas music, and best of all spending time with family. For December my Pin Faves will be all Christmas pins. Enjoy!
