H appy New Year! OK, it's a bit belated but so is this post for that matter. I intended to publish this entry earlier in the month, closer to January 1st but as long as it comes before February 1st, I think I'm OK.
Throughout this post, you'll find a visual recap of almost every one of my entries from 2012 along with links to each one so you can re-visit any ideas you may have missed last year.
I've broken the visuals down into five categories including; Simple DIY/Crafts, It's a Wonderful Life, Easy Home Decor and Decorating, The Friday Foodie, Holiday Inspiration and Gardening Made Easy.
