Happy New Year, my friends!!
I hope the new year has started off nicely for you! We have been cleaning, organizing, and de-cluttering for the past few days and it feels GREAT! A fresh, clean start to 2014 is just what we need.
Today I wanted to do a little re-cap over the past year here on Mine for the Making. I meant to get this up last week but had a ton of Internet issues. Lots of fun was had and most of that is because of YOU, the readers! Thank you so much for your love, kindness, support, comments, emails, pins, shares… I truly appreciate it. Let’s take a look at the Top 13 Posts of 2013…according to YOU, my awesome readers!
In no particular order, here are the Top 13 Posts of 2013…
Did any of your favorites make it into the Top 13?! I know some of mine did! *wink*
And to my pleasant surprise, there were lots of popular projects from the past as well! Here are the top 5 projects from previous years that are still searched for and viewed often here at Mine for the Making:
- DIY Photo Coasters
- Fall Preschool Prints
- Bandana Headband Tutorial
- Halloween Preschool Prints
- Little Mister Mustache Bash (Party Prints)
I feel like I grew a TON as a blogger and handmade shop owner this year. I attended SNAP conference back in April and learned so much and made so many wonderful, lifelong friendships. From there I decided to clean up my blog design and transfer from Blogger over to WordPress (thanks to some of those wonderful lifelong friends I was just talking about. Thank you Becca and Carolina!) and although I lost some views in the beginning, I’m starting to see some awesome growth the past several months (which is a blogger’s dream). My photo taking and editing skills have improved over the course of this year IMMENSELY and I’ve gained a TON of new followers and friends on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and even Twitter! I finally bit the bullet in 2013 and got a twitter account and it’s safe to say that I love it. Silly, I’m sure, but growth all the same. As a handmade shop owner, I sold at more fairs and created more custom sign orders than years past. MFTM accomplished lots this past year…some small steps and others, large.
I am really looking forward to 2014 and all that it has in store… for my family, my blog, my shop, as a mother and a wife, and as a homeschooler. I hope you will stick around for the fun; I sure love having you here!
