My favorite project from 2013 would have to have been the DIY Tufted Headboard and Bed we made for my youngest daughter!  I LOVE it!

Did your favorite project make the TOP 13?

And…in looking back…it is fun to look forward to new projects for the coming year.  What would you like to see more of on The Idea Room in 2014?

2011–A Year in review

I can NOT believe that we have made it through another year of projects here at The Idea Room.  Time just seems to be flying by doesn’t it?  It is time once again to reflect and review 2011 and all that came along with it.  Personally it was one of my more difficult years…I have had better.  But a person is the sum of the good AND the bad.  And I like to focus on the positives.  Don’t you? 

I thought it would be fun to share with you the most popular posts of 2011 according to the ones that received the most pageviews.  I chose to share the top eleven projects in celebration of the year 2011!  Did you have any favorites?  Here they are…

Were some of those your favorites too?

This year I also was able to accomplish some of the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year.  I am happy to say that I was able to accomplish almost every single one.

Here are some of the posts about those resolutions that I could share.

I shared with you about finishing my first Half Marathon.  {Check}  Finishing off the BasementBuild Shelf for freaking long wall. {Check}  Did some mad reading in the last couple of days to finish reading my Scriptures to reach my goal…I have one section left…I think I can! {almost Check}  And I Learned I had Hypothyroidism…not in the plans but glad to get some answers to some personal issues I had been dealing with.

I have truly enjoyed another year of sharing projects and interacting with all of you.  I am grateful for your kind comments and emails.  I love hearing from you.  And I feel so blessed that I have been able to meet so many amazing people whom I would have otherwise not had the opportunity to interact with.  Here’s to another great year!

Happy New Year!!  Hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday with their loved ones!  See you next year…haha {couldn’t resist using that juvenile “year book signing” pun…}!
