My Top Ten of 2010

I have seen lots of top ten lists for 2010 in the blogs that I follow, so I decided to look back at some of the things I have done. In looking back I was suprised to find that I started my blog way back in March 2010, I can't believe that it has almost been a year! Though I have been blogging since March, I have only posted 56 entries. One of my resolutions for the New Year is to really challenge myself to keep working on my blog. Without further adieu, here is my top ten for 2010:

One of my very first posts showed you how I added crown moulding to a basic builder mirror to dress up my dresser.

I also made a curtain panel for my daughter's room using a clearance curtain panel and some leftover colorful ribbons.

One of my favorite projects this year was the simple update of our kitchen from obnoxiously country to a more subtle country style.

Another project that I was glad to have finished this past year was the replacement of carpet in our dining room with beautiful new laminate wood floors.

I made my own "Elf on the Shelf" with the help of Andi's tutorial from Jane of all Crafts.

I made my own cheap wall art here.

I saw these pumpkin topiaries all over the blogs last year and decided to create my own here.

I had lots of comments on my use of a crib rail as a Christmas card display.

I recently blogged about some gift bags that I made out of a Christmas themed vinyl shower curtain I've had for years and never used.

My top viewed and most commented on post this past year was the slipcover that I made for a chair in my son's room. I used a tutorial from Beckie at Infarrantly Creative as my inspiration to finally tackle this project.

I have lots of plans for the house in the new year, so there should be no shortage of posts in 2011. Right now I am motivated to clean up house and plan to follow A Bowl Full of Lemons on her challenge to get organized this month.

Happy New Year!
