I shared the top 10 C.R.A.F.T. posts from 2014 according to page views, but today I want to share my favorite crafts and DIYs of 2014! (Here are my faves from 2012 and 2013.) My very, very favorite DIY in the history of ever happened in March. #Shocker So skip to that month for the really good stuff! But, honestly looking back, almost everything I did revolved around my sweet munchkin from the DIY nursery to baby showers to onesies to learning how to take care of the little guy! Cheers to 2014!
January: January was full of cheesy Valentines and the start of our bathroom remodel! Me and my giant belly got to go to Salt Lake City for the product launch of the Cricut! I whipped up tons of cheesy Valentines: Don’t ever change, I’m so glad we’re in the same school, and You’re the highlight of my day!
February: My friend threw us the cutest black and white baby shower and my mom and I finished up the black and white nursery. My friend, Kristen, took awesome maternity pictures, we made the easiest valences ever and whipped up some picture ledge shelves for the nursery.
March: Maxwell was born and I became a mama! Here is our natural birth story and 15 things I’ve learned about taking care of infants.
April: I pre scheduled a few posts so that I could enjoy my tiny nugget! I still love my super simple instagram collage that disguised a light switch in our home. Oh and of course I love Maxwell’s birth announcements! I also made Maxwell a bazillion onesies with iron on vinyl… it’s so esay!
May: You’re going to be shocked, but one of my favorite posts in the month of May was about Maxwell’s newborn session! I left baby boy at home with dad for a few hours and hosted a Cricut craft night in Austin! Oh and Vanessa whipped up some super cute, free printable Fathers Day cards for us. I also love this round up of 50+ nutter butter creatures!
June: We celebrated my 30th birthday in a foreign country and we were in an earth quake! I wrote about how to get a passport for an infant, useful gift ideas for new moms, and I whipped up a free printable for the Happy Song that I love so much!
July: I spoke about Google + at a blog conference called Alt Summit, and Martha Stewart was the keynote! We also took Maxwell on an 11 hour road trip to meet his great, great grandmother which led me to write a post with tips for traveling with a baby in a car! Maxwell went on 12+ plane rides before he was 4 months old, so I decided to compile my airplane riding with baby tips here!
August: I did not get a lot of crafting done this month, instead Maxwell an I travelled to the northeast! I put together a fun guide of free things to do in New York City with kids, 40+ PVC pipe projects, and Vanessa whipped up this really cute “Stop and smell the roses” free printable!
September: I loved attending the Celebration of Service campaigns with The Home Depot! I got to do it in Austin and Houston! I also started crafting up Halloween costumes for Maxwell… baby koala is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I also made some really easy duck tape pumpkins!
October: I started getting really excited about Halloween and made Maxwell a few more costumes… 5 more to be exact! Maxwell was an organic carrot, a cheeseburger, a panda bear, a Game boy, and a baby Bob Ross!
November: I was still finishing up Halloween costume posts in November! Andy and I were Crown and Coke! And Rachel shared these adorable free printable turkey pillow boxes! I also spilled the beans about out ornament Christmas cards this month.
December: I gave Andy and Maxwell their Christmas present early and we went to Comfort, TX. We also attended a hideous Christmas party and whipped up some more really awesome (hideous) costumes… mind of course was made out of Duck Tape!
And those are a few of my favorite posts of 2014! Cheers to happy, healthy, crafty 2015! And a giant thank YOU for reading C.R.A.F.T.!
