Okay, technically this post should have been yesterday's seeing how it was the last day of 2011 but as I mentioned I am behind on everything as always. So, yesterday's post is now going up today and the post I had planned for today will be up tomorrow! And then hopefully after that everything else will be according to schedule! =) Anyway, here is a recap of some of our favorite projects and events shown here on our blog this past year:
My favorite project from January was this pleated slipcover for our leather ottoman and some fun pillows for Valentine's Day.
We also sold our very first Je T'aime pillow cover in January (we will have more available in another week or two):
In February we went a little crazy with the pink and decorated for Valentine's Day:
And we had a fun little Audrey Hepburn themed birthday party for Dana:
We finished turning our guest room into a nursery for little Lola and were featured as the Cottage of the Month on The Old Painted Cottage's Website:
And a tutorial for some easy moss letters:
In April we did made some inexpensive crepe paper peonies to embellish gifts and other things with (and included a tutorial):
In May we did our first Photoshop Tutorial (Lillie is wearing our Arabelle Tutu which will be available next week!)
And we also added some color to our porch for the summer:
In June we took a trip to the beach with my family:
And then the girls and I descended upon Moose Mountain where Lillie pretty much basked in the dirt all summer while Jon was on the road recruiting:
In July I had so much fun photographing my cousin Michael and his beautiful wife, Danielle:
And we were mentioned in the magazine Romantic Country:
In August we had a Jane Austen themed party for Jamie:
And said good-bye to Moose Mountain:
In September we reopened Dear Lillie with our very own website:
In October we did a little post showing where we hide all of our toys in our family room:
And another Photoshop Tutorial on making eyes "pop" (I am planning on doing an updated version of this soon with a better photo):
And how to make over 50 ornaments for less than $1.50:
In December we gave a little tour of our home decorated for Christmas:
And also showed Jamie and Josh's home decorated for the holidays:
I can't wait for all that 2012 brings!
Happy New Year!
