My Top Ten Projects of 2012

Wow, I cannot believe that we've come to the end of 2012!  This year has passed so quickly.  I decided to have a look back over my first six months of blogging with you.  I started this blog to share my projects, but you, my friends and readers, have made this experience so amazing.  

I want to thank you for following my blog, and let you know how much your friendship means to me.  I missed visiting with you so much during my Christmas Break.  

I can't wait to see what everyone will create in the new year, but I know it will be amazing!

Kathy, I'm speechless. You are so talented. Every project is a work of art in every sense. Hard to pick a favorite, but I have to say that chair is incredible. Wow!

I'm following you back because, well, I've gotta come back and see more of your work. Cheers!

Hello Kathy,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on sweet Kris' la reportiste. You have such a lovely blog, and I love all your decorating ideas. I noticed alot of red for the holidays, which I really liked, and your Christmas decor was so pretty and festive. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. I want to re decorate my home in the new year, and I would love to see some of your wonderful ideas. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
