2012 Favorites

I truly debated whether or not to write a “best of” 2012 post. I thought I’d take a look back through my posts and see if inspiration struck. It’s amazing how quickly you forget (I forget). Here are a few of my favorites.

Favorite post to write - “Have you Ever?” 

Favorite Fringe - Custom Ribbon Fringe which resulted in this window treatment.

 Favorite Project I made for myself - the Betsy Ross Flag Pillow which tied with…

my Fabric Flower Lampshade.


Throughout 2012 I was so blessed to meet and work with many new people. Both locally and long distance. I shipped items from The Shop all over the US as well as to Australia, Canada and the UK. This is still a major thrill to me! To pick a favorite client project is so very hard because I’ve truly enjoyed them all.

But I have to say that working with Wendy at Integrative Medial Solutions was just one of my Favorite Design Projects. 


A favorite and a first was the first ever Question and Answer post here at Beyond the Screen Door. Part I and Part II.


The last is not a favorite post but an Favorite Email I received while corresponding to a request for a burlap tree skirt.

“I will warn though that it may take me a few days to pay but hopefully not as I am currently in labor hoping to have my baby sometime soon. So I am writing to u between contractions and may forget to pay straight away. Yes I am crazy..hehe, but I really want the tree skirt.”

I got this biggest kick out of this! I’m happy to report that she was blessed with a beautiful baby boy! Mom and baby are both doing great.


And now to say a huge THANK YOU! to each and everyone of you! For your friendship, your comments and your support of me and this blog. I am so very thankful for YOU.

My prayer for each of you is that 2013 be full of God’s many wondrous blessings! Full of expectations and answered prayers. Full of wonder and awe to see what God has in store for the new year. Full of family, friends and health.  Full of JOY!
