I am joining the party over at Rhoda’s

2010 Top Projects

Hopefully, after I finish putting together this post, I will actually be able to locate Internet access for my laptop so that I can share it. We are still visiting family and in this party of the world, things are a bit quieter and simpler.

Actually, it took me a few days to actually get here, so sorry I am a little late to the party…

I only really began blogging in September, so I don’t think I have a “Top 10”. Just the same, I thought I would share a few summaries.

First, the is the evolution of our fireplace mantel.

Then, there were a few other projects that evolved with the seasons.

The chalkboard that my husband and I made in the kitchen from an old frame, some MDF and chalkboard contact paper.

First, we were lucky enough this to have my friend’s daughter draw a fun scene for summer…

Several of these projects have links in the sidebar if you would like to see more information.

I am so appreciative of the opportunity to be part of the blog world this year and all that it has brought. I have met so many lovely people and several people I consider friends. I have learned SO much. Finally, I have direction and a purpose with all that I am passionate about and I am so appreciative of that.

Hope everyone is enjoying so me down time and getting ready for 2011. Happy New Year to all!
