Can you believe that 2012 is almost over? It seems like it has flown! Tadd and I are ready for 2013. If it’s anything like the past year has been, then we are in for some good stuff. Can’t wait to find out!
Instead of a typical year in review post, I thought I would share my top 5 most popular project posts of the past year. I always find it interesting to see what posts people like to read the most. And it’s always fun to reflect on all I have done in the past year!
5. REUSABLE PRODUCE BAG
This reusable produce bag was one of the first sewing projects I completed at the beginning of this year. I believe it was the first time I boxed a corner! And it was one of the first projects that seemed to go really smoothly from start to finish. Successes like these are what encouraged me to keep going with teaching myself how to sew this past year. And on top of that, it’s just plain cute!
4. PINK SANGRIA
I love a good sangria recipe. And although I do love this very popular pink sangria recipe that I made last May, I think my all-time favorite version is the peach sangria I made over 4th of July weekend! It’s my new go-to summer drink of choice.
3. FALL TABLE RUNNER
If you know me, you know that fall is my favorite season. When I saw this adorable fall fabric at JoAnn Fabrics, I knew I had to think of a project to make with it. This lead to this reversible fall table runner, which was my very first ever sewing project where I made something just based on what I wanted, as opposed to following someone else’s tutorial. It was also the first time I used a decorative stitch. It obviously wasn’t anything super complicated, but I was still so pleased with how it turned out.
2. CHOCOLATE CHIP CHEESECAKE
My chocolate chip cheesecake post from last spring has REALLY taken off in the past several weeks. As I mentioned previously, this recipe has been pinned and repinned a TON of times now. It’s super easy and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. I not only made it for Easter 2012 dessert, but made it again last week for our family’s Christmas dinner dessert! It’s always a big hit.
1. TERRACOTTA POT SAUCER COASTERS
This is, no question, the most popular post EVER on my blog. It’s the closest thing I have gotten to going viral and it still gets a ton of hits almost every single day. As a matter of fact, this post has gotten more pageviews than my blog’s regular main page! Everyone loves these terracotta pot saucer coasters. I’m glad everyone loved this project as much as I did, although I certainly did not come up with the idea. I was inspired by this great post from the Joy Is At Home blog, and she was inspired by someone else and so on.
What were your favorite projects that you completed in 2012? Any goals or ideas for 2013 projects?
