So Where Do We Go From Here?

Since this little blog had it's first posting on August 31st, I've let it just follow along wherever I am going that day.

As the year draws to a close, I thought I'd look at my Google stats and see what you guys liked the most.

Hands down, the winner for readers was All That Glitters Is Not Gold.

I changed this $2 Dollarama pail ~ 

Into this ~

You loved it and it is still circulating around Pinterest and crops up regularly in Google searches.  I have to say, this has taken me completely by surprise!  To see how it is done, click  Here.

The second most viewed, was Three Ladies And A Great Idea. I was so excited about making my own chalk paint that I had to share it with you!

I took a little of this ~ 

And made this ~

The third most searched and commented on post is Citrasolv Fabric Transfer or Who Thinks This Stuff Up.

I'm in love with being able to print script and images onto fabric and this was my first tutorial. I sure hope everyone could understand it! ~

To get hooked on transferring images to everything from tea towels and table runners to bedding and slip covers, go Here.

I'm so glad I had some ideas to share with you this year!  It has also meant a lot to me to have you with me through some of the more difficult times that have arisen this year.  Your kind comments and patience with sporadic posts, since November, are truly appreciated!

If there are any questions I can answer for you as a decorator, feel free to ask.  I've run into pretty much every decorating dilemma there is, over the years, and I'm happy to share the solutions with you.

I look forward to showing you tons of great ideas in 2012!
