A Year in Review: 2010

As par for the course I thought a look back at 2010 would be appropriate on the last day of the year. Especially since I have several new followers and friends who haven't been here for all my ups and downs!

 In February, I had a booth selling vintage costume jewelry at the Dallas Burlesque Festival which I also performed in.

In March I finally found my dining table and started decorating our dining room.

Later that month I snagged some awesome furniture from my former boss and re-planted all our flower beds.

In May, I finalized plans for my sister in law's wedding dress and planned their wedding which was held in June at my parent's farm.

In June I painted our dining room purple.

In July I finally found the perfect fabric to go in our fabulous purple dining room.

In August I hung up my art wall, began demo on our master bath and started painting our dining chairs (still not finished with those grrr!)

During wedding week In September I finally got pictures from my own wedding to show off to you. Part 1, part 2.

Painted my living room the perfect shade of gray.

In October I finished my first painting and completed the shower in our master bath remodel.

Showed off my entry way and hallway makeover in November.

And lastly, hosted a handmade gift swap in December!

Wow! What a year! I have to admit I was being a little hard on myself for not finishing painting those chairs but when I see all this I don't feel so bad. Come to think about it, how did I get all this done?! 

Thanks for looking back on this year with me. And even more, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making my whole experience with this blogging thing so amazing. You have no idea how excited I am to log in everyday and read your comments, pour over your blogs, and get inspired by you! 

Here's to an even bigger and better 2011! Happy New Year's everyone!
