I started blogging long before 2008, but this was the year I switched to wordpress and really started writing and posting. I’ve never really done a recap, so I thought it might be fun to see what some of the top posts were this past year.

2011 was a changing year for me with daisyeyes. I found myself at home this year, with both of my children in school. I felt the Lord tugging my heart to focus and learn about growing daisyeyes handmade into more of a “real” business. This past fall has been a learning experience for sure. I don’t know the first thing about marketing, packaging or web design and I’ve been moved out of my box for sure, but that said I’m beyond excited. I’ve got the support of loads of friends, my husband, parents and so many others and I am so excited about where things could go in 2012.

That said, here is a recap of the past year.

The top post of last year was about our if/then chart. I recently wrote about our updated version of this and was honestly surprised that this was the most read (and pinned) post.

The second most popular was about where I sew. I must say this was probably the best development of this past year. Finally finishing (well sort of!) our basement and having a dedicated spot to sew has been amazing. I’ve still got loads to do with organizing, but it’s been just awesome to have a spot for sure.

Last October I took part in the 31 days party. It was a hard month, I have to be honest. I started out strong, but by the end of the month I was almost regretting that I had decided to do it. In the end, it was good for me and I’m glad I did. Although, next year I’ll give a little more thought to the topic I choose!

As for 2012, I hope to be a little more regular and organized in my posting. I am pondering through some ideas, such as posting a found pattern once a week, working on an alphabet sampler letter by letter and week by week, learning and “teaching” an embroidery stitch per week among a few other ideas. I’m also working on some patterns of my own to share…talk about working outside the box!

Thanks again to all the readers, followers and friends who continue to encourage me in so many ways. You have each played a part in growing this little daisy.
