One more day and school begins here… and I wanted to take this chance to share with you a quick recap of my most popular and favourite posts since I began this blogging adventure.

Wow. Over Six Months. I can’t wait to see what the next half year brings. I hope everyone has had a fabulous summer. I know that I have, but now I am looking forward to all the creativity, crafting, and decorating of the fall season. Here come the holidays!! Yay!

 A special thanks to all my readers and subscribers for all of your kind, supportive, awesome comments over the past half year. Every time I get an email or comment from a reader that they were inspired to create something they love after reading one of my posts, I feel that my purpose in having this blog has been fulfilled. Thank you!!

And remember my housie friends, HOME isn’t built in a day. Enjoy the journey!!

    Wow girl, you have been busy your first half year. Love all the color that you have going on. Just found you this evening via Transformation Thursday party. I’m off to find your page on facebook to follow you along. Come by for a visit when you can.

    1. Thanks Shannah- I realized I hadn’t done any sort of round up at all since blogging, and that it had already been over half a year! It was time…

  4. All your projects are fantastic Krista, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but I love your outdoor set up and back to school mantle the best!

  5. Hi Krista, your house is so fresh and fun! It almost makes me want to repaint mine…almost (we just moved in less than a year ago!!) I am a brand new blogger and hope that in 7 months my blog looks as professional and streamlined as yours! I would love for you to check me out.
    Cindy 🙂

  6. Seven months–that’s it? Your blog is so professional and full of wonderful projects that I definitely thought you were blogging much longer than that! Can’t wait to see more.

    1. Thank you Susa! WordPress makes it fairly user friendly to look much more professional then you really are:) lol! I look forward to what the future holds- totally appreciate your kind comments!!

    1. Thanks Abby!! I have about a billion things in my mind for the next seven months – we will see what I actually manage to accomplish:) Thanks for your kind comments, friend!!

    1. Awww thanks Christy! That is so sweet – your kind comments are truly appreciated friend:) The best part about this blogging journey has been connecting with awesome, kind, creative people (like you:)…

  7. As always Krista, loving your blog! You are well established in blog-land – I see your crafts linked up everywhere! Well done – I can only hope to have a blog half as good as yours! 😀

    1. Thank you Petra! It has been a busy but fun journey so far. I think that I am finally starting to settle into the groove… we will see what that looks like when school starts up again (today:)!!
