Over 100+ best of’s diy projects in 2012 {features}

Why Hello there!

The newbie party round up was really enjoyable for me to go peek through this week.

Can you believe there were over 100+ best  of’s projects in 2012 shared at my

Newbie party last week?

I love the end of the year round ups.

It really put things into perspective on just how very talented, creative,

and busy to say the least we all are.

How about we take a look back and see what my round ups are for the week.

First off, here is a new blog I just stumbled across a few weeks ago

Tricia from Simplicity in the South.


Tricia shares all kinds of diy inspiration

and her round up was fantastic

 The DIY Village,

has some top notch diy projects.

Of course, it is nice to be a husband and wife team and do it all together.

I have to say every time I see this sunny, happy craft room, it makes me want to get up and paint, and craft perhaps.

Bj from Joy to journey,

sure has had a journey this past year.

Just sayin….who has built a play house under their stairs?

Believe me, Bj, has plenty more diy fabulous projects to share as well.

I am happy to report that I was just able to get a new (to me) DSLR camera, so I am hopeful that my pictures will be even better (after I learn all the kazillion ways of taking a picture with one of these new-fangled cameras :) Happy new week to you!
