Looking back at 2010 {my 10 favorite projects}

2010 has been so fun!! 
I have met so many great friends and really feel so blessed. 
The year started off with this Burlap Wreath.
Then I went a little crazy making Valentine’s projects. 
Starting off with this Cupcake Wrapper Wreath.

This Valentine Subway Art project started my subway art obsession – lol.
I made some Playing Card Coupons for our Valentine’s dinner.
In the Spring I combined my love of burlap AND ruffles with a Flirty Runner.
We had such a fun time making Giant Bubbles this summer!
When the weather got better I got outside and made a DIY Bench out of an old crib for our porch.
I spent the summer working on my Beachy Laundry Room
I loved making frugal clothing refashions this year like this
I am so excited for 2011!!!
Some projects that will be starting soon are:

Kitchen Cabinets painted
Entertainment Unit DIY makeover
Family Room Nook makeover
and maybe I’ll finally finish my Master BedroomI hope so!! 
Thank you so much for all of your love and support this year.
I feel so lucky to know you!
I’m linking up to Rhoda’s Top 10 Projects party and 
The CSI Project’s — Project of the Year Challenge. 
Come over and see the amazing ideas!!!

    That burlap wreath is to die for! It's a combination of Amy Butler meets Anthroplogie…

    Take care,

  2. I saw you on studio 5 in January last year and have been following your blog ever since! Thank you for your inspiration! You helped me stay sane through my husbands deployment! I can't wait to see what you come up with this year!

  3. Your blog is one of my favorite places to visit for project inspiration. I didn't find your blog until July or so, so I missed most of these projects. So glad you shared a recap! :) Can't wait to see your 2011 projects!

  34. Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says:

    Exciting projects for the New Year, Jen! I'll have to revisit your Valentine's coupons post ~ wonderful to see that and with plenty of time yet! Great bench ~ I actually drove past a twin bed headboard someone was throwing out and regretted later not stopping. I was actually thinking it might have made a great little bench.

  35. I loved all of these projects. The laundry room still makes me swoon though. I don't think I'd mind laundry so much if I got to do it in that gorgeous room!

  36. I do NOT know how you narrowed it down to only 10!

  37. Courtney {a thoughtful place} says:

    You are so so talented. Such fun to see all of those in one spot. Thanks for inspiring me.

  38. As always I love everything you do. I remember the first time I saw your cupcake liner wreath–I was in love and I still feel the same way. Thank you for all your inspiration and support. Hope you had a blessed Christmas.

    Happy New Year,
    Cha Cha

  39. Nike@ChooseToThrive says:

  42. I love all of those but the laundry room one is my favorite. Still waiting for you to show up and do mine. It only requires the removal of wallpaper…which is papered around and behind the cupboards.

  43. love that!

  44. Jen, you are truly amazing!!!!!

  45. Great ideas! The burlap wreath would be perfect for my mother as a gift for her house on the ranch. Thanks for sharing!

  46. Jen, your projects are all so fantastic and your house is beautiful. Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas with everyone…
