Reflecting Back on Projects

Sometimes it is valuable to look back and see how far you have come.

I know my blog has gone through several phases over the last two years – and I have been fluffing and organizing for the last 6 months since the redesign.

The last thing I finished yesterday (with the help of Creative Kristi), was my project gallery.

As a result, I ended looking WAY back and remembering some of my first, but favorite projects that I thought I would share with you today.

I hope you enjoyed stepping in my “way back time machine” today.

You can see all of these project and more on each of my projects, decorating and holidays pages.

And going forward, these pages will contain all of the new posts as well so it will all be grouped together.

Thanks so much for reading!
