Top 10 posts of 2014

I started this blog on October 1, 2012 and while it’s taken me a while to settle into a regular posting schedule, I finally feel as though the train is heading steadily down the track.

As I’ve been planning out 2015, I’ve also been looking back at 2014.  In lieu of a ‘Year in Review’ post, I thought I’d share the top 10 posts of 2014.

In order of most views:

0172bd496214e0ed12185ad8b4cc42f2f7340eef2510.  (128 views) Ornament #8 – Felt Dog Bone {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}.  One of my favorite ornaments to make.  By this time, I had mastered the blanket stitch.




9.  (129 views) Ornament #4 – Hand painted Dog Bone Icicle {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}.  I’m considering making this next year for friends and family who own dogs.




8.  (131 views) Eucalyptus Oil to Stop a Cough?  I tried this and maybe it’s something that needs to be done on a regular basis, but it didn’t really work for me.  I still really like essential oils especially in my soap recipes.



7.  (136 views)  Ornament #5 – Map Ornament {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}.  This would be a fun ornament to send to a friend or family member who lives far away.




6.  (156 views) Yummy Knitted Dish Cloths.  This is a fun pattern and really easy despite it’s complicated look.  I’m considering making these for stocking stuffers next year.



5.  (177 views)  Ornament #1 – Patchwork Christmas Trees {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}.  This was a fun way to use up scrap fabric.  I made trees, but really you could make any shape you want.


Nov 3 - Laundry Detergent4.  (309 views) Pinterest 365 – Day 3 – Homemade Laundry Detergent.  A couple of Christmases ago, I made a group of friends their own batch of laundry detergent along with the recipe.  They’re still making their own today.  It really is a great recipe.


100_38803.  (314 views) Pinterest 365 – Day 7 – Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub.  There’s nothing quite as invigorating as a sugar scrub.  I keep a jar by the sink in the kitchen for my hands as well as use the scrub when I bathe.



100_38412.  (508 views) Pinterest 365 – Day 4 – Chicken Vegetable Casserole.  This is just about the easiest dinner you can make.



Pumpkin No-Bake Energy Bites

1.  (624 views) Pinterest 365 – Day 11 – Pumpkin No Bake Energy Bites.  You’ll need to make a double batch because the first one will be gone before you know it.


It’s been a wonderful year full of memorable times and filled with lots of love.  Thank you all for taking time to stop by to read these posts.Grace





If you had to make a list of your 3 favorite dogs in the whole world, would I be #1?  I’m the oldest after all.
