Top Ten Blog Posts of 2021

Wow, it’s so hard to believe another year has come and gone. I’ve officially been blogging for 2 years and what a journey it has been.

Earlier this week I shared my reader’s choice Top Ten DIY Projects. Today I’m sharing the Top Ten Reader’s Choice Blog Posts for 2021.

I’ve shared many times that I’m a “jump right into the middle of a project kinda girl” and that’s how my blogging journey began. Without any knowledge, I jumped in with both feet.

Regrettably, there was so much I needed to know. Over the past two years, I’ve had the wonderful experience of meeting so many wonderful friends who have helped me along the way.

Although I still have so much to learn, I feel more confident sharing all my adventures with you.

There are few overlaps but once again, I was completely surprised to see what made the list. I hope you enjoy taking a look back at my past two years of blogging.
