Looking Back - January


Well, January has come and gone.  It's already February guys!! Time to start doodling hearts, making Valentines and looking out for Cupid's arrows. But, before we get carried away let's take the time to look back over some of what went down on the blog in January. Here we go....


I stamped my heart out with this little handmade Cork Stamp.

I decided it was about time to let my sweater do the talking with this sweet sweater DIY.

Mittens don't have to be boring. Try this little DIY to add some subtle elegance.

I (finally) put away my Christmas decorations, and shared this simple solution for preventing tangled lights.

I made a slouchy beanie to participate in my first ever crochet-a-long.

Snow Day!!! 'Nuff said!  ;)

I participated in the Dear Photograph project.

I found the perfect solution for displaying my pretty baubles.

A sneaky peek into my creative space. (And, a little more on Mr. Rex.)



Don't forget to check out the DIY Gallery!



After seeing my jewelry display post, Stephanie from meet.make.laugh shared her fun jewelry organizer DIY with me. I love how you can make it match any decor depending on the fabric you use.

All right guys, do you have any favorite projects/posts of your own from January?
