2011 Recap

I had a blast joining in over at Rhoda's last year. This post really helps you see what all you have been able to accomplish in one short year!

We started out the year by adding a gallery wall up our stairway.
(and it didn't get blogged until August... oopsies)
 In February we printed out our first set of Ana White plans and built a book shelf for lil bit's big girl room.

Then I decided to copy-cat and add a stencil wall to the main wall in our master bedroom.
In April I decided to try my hand at upholstery and I recovered this chair.
(as you can tell I got to excited to add the tacks, conceal the bottom, or finish painting the chair before I shared the post!) haha
Then in the end of May and early June I took on my side of the road beauty!
This was a true Labor of Love!
At the end of July we left town for our first ever week long family vacation!
To Disney World we Went. And we had a BLAST!
(as you can see a pint-sized someone started taking on the "I am almost 3 attitude, Lord help me)

Then in August I striped my rug I found at Ikea for our dining room.
At the end of August a friend and I made this.
Tufting was super easy!!

In October we rented one of these machine's and blew insulation into our attic.
We also decided we were over the stenciled wall in our master bedroom and took the plunge with BM Popcorn Kernel. ALL 4 gallons it took!!
Annddd... I lurve it... like big time!!
In late October I tried my hand at a Burlee!
And this whole time we have been working our way through designing our bundle of joy's nursery!
**hope to reveal the room by new years eve... only a few finishing touches....
Head on over to Rhoda's and see what everyone else has accomplished this year!

So many great projects! Happy to have "met" you this year!! I need to read your attic insulation post. Has it helped with energy costs?

Thanks so much for stopping in to see me! I really enjoyed looking through your blog.

Our favorite was the photo of your daughter with her "I am almost three attitude" -- we laughed out loud at the memories.

I am now following you.
