It's that time of year again.
The time between Christmas and New Year's when my mind is fried from all the holiday posts and I try to fill up dead space with a "riveting" year-end retrospective.
I honestly do love these yearly posts though, but it takes me forever to decide which posts to highlight and which posts to let die.
They're all my children and it's so hard to choose. It sort of turns into the Sophie's Choice of blogging.
Except no one really dies, so there's THAT!
I ended up using a combination of criteria - the posts which best symbolize my style and focus this year, the posts that were shared more often on social media and the posts that I personally loved the most - and came up with my:
Top DIY Projects Of The Year (Kind Of, Sort Of, Maybe)
Although I hate writing out step-by-step tutorials more than getting my fingernails pulled out one by one, I took one for the team this year and tried to document my projects a little bit more. I'd say that I am getting used to writing them, but that would be lying.
Mid-Century Modern Chair Restoration
I jumped into the food blogging arena this year with both spatulas. It's new to me, it's fun and it makes me fat. I hope to do more of it in 2016 (minus the fat part).
Best Soft And Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Holiday & Seasonal:
I could write about holiday and seasonal decor until the cows some home. Except I don't have any cows. So if they did come home, I'd be shocked and maybe just a bit scared.
Pansy-licious Spring Table Decor
Repurposed Funnel Jack-O'-Lantern
I want to thank each and every one of you who have been along for the journey this year. It's been a fun and wild ride this year and I could not do this without you. Yes, I'm pointing at YOU!
Well, I could do it without you, but then I'd be talking to myself and that's no fun!
Do you have a favorite I missed? One post that sticks out in your mind? One post that says, Hey, that's my girl!

Musings from Kim K.
Can't wait to see what's in store in 2016...especially in the thermos collecting category. I understand how painful it is to document those DIY tutorials, but those are always a favorite. Happy New Year!
You know what? You have an "eye" that I certainly don't have. I would never have seen these beautiful things and created them with what you had. You are THAT good and more!
First Off...Fantastic Pictures! I love seeing your creativeness and your wonderful take on life! It's hard to pick favorites but here goes... That owl is so gosh darn adorable, the wreath on the wood everyone should have one, also the sailboat should be in every home. You are very talented and your blog is a joy to read! Best of New Years to you. Mickie
Every one is more wonderful than the last one! I so look forward to each 1 of your posts! Happy new year & get well soon!
So I'll be honest--I read your blog, so I didn't really need a re-cap, but I came back just for this title.
