Favorite Blog Posts of 2013

Here are a few memorable moments that I captured here on my blog this past year..
I made my own bed! This was such a fun process and was my favorite build of the year. 
I learned how to print on fabric, thanks to my sister, and made this Calendar for 2014 using the process. 

I shared my brother & sister-in-law's video wedding invite!

 Learn To Crochet videos were added to the blog to teach how to make this hatthese gloves and these barefoot sandals!
 My passport cover not only came in handy but have been a huge driving force behind my Etsy shop. Who knew that such a simple idea would turn into something so much more?!
 Since I started my Etsy shop, I decided to be pretty open about what I have learned so far. I can be very private about a lot of things, but being open about this has brought a lot of growth! I thought this was important for a few reasons: mainly so I can look back to see growth as well as share with others who may be facing the same things I am. See the posts here: 1/2/3/4
 I created two different DIY's with Minnetonka Moccasin. Their moccasins are so comfortable and it was so great to partner with them on these projects! You can see the suede ankle boot DIY here & the fringe tramper boot DIY here.
I took some inspiration notes from a few girls I know around town through the blog series "Do What You Love." Dough A Dear Bakery / Frolic Apparel

My trip to Seattle was not only fun and full of exploring, but I got to spend time with close friends and take time to relax...which is my kind of traveling!

This year has been one for the books, I can't wait to see what the year 2014 holds!
