Top 5 Most Viewed Posts of 2012

First of all, this whole blogging experience, which I started on a whim back in the spring, has been so fantastic. I love the outlet of being able to share my creativity, ideas and projects with others.

And, I'm so thankful for all of you! Every comment, new follower or feature makes me smile and brightens my day.

This is probably my lack of self confidence talking, but I sometimes can't believe that others are inspired by my posts and want to keep coming back to my blog.  Thank you! This is truly my outlet on tough days. Here I can separate myself from being the homeschooling mom of two brilliant boys with autism, ADHD, anxiety, OCD and vision problems and just be Angela, thrifter and DIYer. The funny thing is, even when my boys are having rough days they totally support my blogging. They get that this is important to me and will give me the time to work on projects and write blog posts.

My second purpose of this post is to share my Top 5 Most Viewed Posts of 2012.  Which was your favorite?

  1. Hi Angela; love your top five. I too use blogging as a way to be creative, to share, keep in touch with friends and family and as a place to have some 'me' time. Thank you for sharing (dropping over from Boogieboard Cottage today. Happy New Year.

  2. Great inspiration! Looking forward to more from you in 2013! Blessings for the New Year!

  3. So fun Angela! I love this post. I struggle so much with the thought that others might care about what I'm doing in my life and home and being afraid I'm a narcissist. But we're all in this together I suppose. It is really nice to have a creative outlet. I'm a homeschooling Mama of 5 :)

  4. Well I for one love what you share! Which I think you know ;) Thanks for opening this post with your Qt's too. It's wonderful they know that mom needs her time too. We do, we really do. Blogging and connecting with others who enjoy the same thing really feeds me. Wishing you a Happy New Year!
