Corner House's First Blog-aversary

Wowsers.  I can't believe it is my first blog-averary already.  As most things do, it kinda snuck up on me.  I remembered a few weeks ago that is was coming up, but then I got SUPER busy and boom it was here.
I thought it would be kinda fun to take a little stroll back over this past year and take a peek at some of my favorite projects.  So in no particular order here are my favorites from this past year.

The Baby Life Quilt.  This is still Bryce's (and my) favorite quilt.  He uses it almost every night and I love going in his room to get him when he wakes up and he hands me this quilt.  Then I wrap it around him and I get to cuddle him a little before he wiggles away to go be crazy naughty.  Why do babies have to grow up?

I am still LOVING my family room makeover.  So of course my first try at wall molding and my bird family portrait  had to be among my favorite projects.

Ahh the princess skirt.  Maybe it is because of the wonderful memories I  have of meeting princesses with my sweet girl (if only everyday could be that easy and happy) or maybe it is because I was so proud of myself for making a character theme skirt that doesn't look dumb, but I have quite an attachment to this skirt.

Emma's Room.  I love Emma's room.  I especially love the bed tutu and the large castle on the wall.  I totally wish it was my room.  Although I feel like it needs a bit of a revamp, to bad that is so far down on the old project priority list.

Logan's 3rd Birthday Cake.   Logan was just such a cute birthday boy and he really LOVED his zoo train cake.

In the hallway heading down to the mud room you will see "every child is an artist."  I love having a great place to display all of their wonderful art than isn't all over my refrigerator.  The kids have had a lot of fun picking what art they want to have up in their clip board. 

 Emma's not just a ruffle bum skirt.  I actually made this just before I started this blog (or even really knew there was such a thing as craft blogs)  so there is no post about it.  I think we have gotten more wear out of this skirt then probably any other  article of clothing I have made for Emma.  And I love this skirt because I made it for Emma to wear to her Kindergarten program after which we got this wonderful family picture (you got to love 2 year olds).

 Not me, but Laura's 18th birthday cake.  Probably my favorite cake to date.  I always love a cake that matches my home decor.

 I still wish this skirt was my size.

Baby Lyle's pinwheel quilt and faux chenille blanket.  I am still planning on making a faux chenille blanket that will stay in my house, but until than I will have to just look at the pictures.   What a great learning experience these both were for me.

I know this was recent, but I just had to count Emma's Rapunzel party as one of my favorites.

Last but not least, and most recent there is Bryce room revamp.  I really wish I could just have all of you come and hang out in there with me.  There is something about the happy peacefulness that is in that room that just doesn't quite show up in pictures.

Well I hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me.  I have some fun projects coming up this next week (if I ever get them done.)
