2012 Recap: My Favorite Posts

My favorite posts of 2012:

I started the year off with a do-it-yourself spray painting project for our office. Read about the project details here. This was the start of our office/guest room makeover (more updates to follow).

In February I began a photography challenge. I received a new DSR camera for Christmas and this was a fun and challenging project. It is also supported my love for taking pictures. I would love to get into the field of professional photography one day in the future.

The challenge started with "my view today" and this was the photo (dated February 1st, 2012):

In the spring I was busy preparing for Ellie's first birthday party. Her party was definitely one of my favorite memories of 2012. You can read all about the party details here.

The start of Ellie's playroom was one of my favorite posts this year (second to Ellie's party). It was fun to pick out the paint colors and the design for this space. I wanted the room to be bright and welcoming and to pick a color that I wouldn't use in the rest of our home. You can see the colors we chose here. We added a chalkboard wall (inspiration posted here) and we love it. I was inspired by rooms, such as this one:

We announced some exciting news in September to our family using the new chalkboard wall:

And, the updated news that Ellie will have a baby sister (posted in December):

In October I started a "Favorite Items" post that I plan on continuing in the future:

November and December of twenty twelve were busy, but productive months. It was definitely more fun to decorate this year with Ellie being old enough to be excited about the Holidays. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest pinning inspirational Holiday photos (read the post here).

I diy'd a "Merry" Christmas banner in December. I loved seeing this hung on my mantle everyday and will definitely be creating new banners in the future.

Our family had a very fun-filled and festive month of December. I posted about it here. I also loved this year's "Scenes From Our Christmas" and my favorite photo is of Ellie, of course, in her Christmas dress (being silly):

Blogging has become a passion of mine and I want to thank YOU for reading and supporting my blog. I am looking forward to another amazing year with all of you in twenty thirteen!
