A Look Back At 2014

It’s always fun to do a year in review post to see what you did over the past year.  Most of the time I forget just what I accomplished in those first few months of the year.  So, here is my 2014 in review.

January

To prepare for Valentine’s Day, I made a button heart.

I recovered my living room lampshades.

And, I made a Kissing booth pillow.

February

I made over a wood storage box in my craft room that I had wanted to tackle for some time.

I also made over a plain wood candlestick that I found at Goodwill.

I also made a pillow using this really cute bunny image.

March

I updated a plain black wood tool tote that I found at a yard sale and decided to keep for myself (instead of selling in my booth space at the time).

April

I put together a vignette for on top of my refrigerator that I was pretty happy with for Spring.

I also tried my hand at making a nature collage wood box.

May

I made a Hydrangea wreath in May.

June

I made a clearance tray into an Office sign.

July

I prettied up a plain address book.

August

I made a skirt for the new counter in our laundry room using drop cloth.

September

In getting my craft on for Halloween, I altered an Altoid tin and had a lot of fun doing it.

I also put together this teacup bird feeder with a teacup that was going to be donated back to Goodwill.

October

In October, I got shutters for my dining room, added wood embellishments and painted them.

November

Not much going on in November, although I did add some pretty paper book page wreaths I purchased on  Etsy to my shutters.

And I did another altered Altoid tin with a Christmas theme.

December

Besides sharing some Christmas decorating, I had a custom order for this cute baby stocking.

Which brings us to the end of the year.  I’ve got high hopes for accomplishing some fun projects in 2015 and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. 

Happy New Year!

I'm worn out! You have been so busy this year! I love your projects and you sew beautifully! I just love your wooden tool tote! You also added the perfect addition to your laundry room with your counter skirt; it's lovely! Your shutters add such character to your dining room vignette too! I can't wait to see what you have in store for 2015! Sending best wishes for a fantastic 2015 to you and your family, Kathy!

Happy New Year honey! What a great post to highlight all your projects for the year. I remember a lot of them and loved seeing the ones I missed.
Your home and your creative projects are just beautiful. Can't decide my favorite.
Just wish I could accomplish as much as you do in a years time.
Hope you have a great weekend

Kathy, you must not sleep much. :)

I don't get that many creative projects accomplished in two years. I envy your work. The ideas are in my head but don't seem to happy that often.

Doreen@househoneys said...

I think I've thrown away my last box of altoids Kathy. That was such a cute project!

The lamp looks like one I did a few years ago as well. It was a fun and easy project to do as I'm sure you'll agree.

Happy New Year to you!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...
