{2011} A Home in the Making

Did you all have a great Christmas? We had such a lovely holiday. It was filled with family and so much love and fun. Over the next couple weeks I'll share some of the gifts we received + one of the gifts we gave. You'll love it :).

But today we're going to take a look back at the year we've had at A Home in the Making. We've had this little blog going for over THREE years. Can you believe that? And, it just keeps getting better each year. I like looking back on the year because it's fun to remind myself all we've accomplished on our little home. 

So here are my favorites, by month.


In the midst of a couple major projects, we found a compass. On our floor.



We finished up our hardwoods by installing quarter-round. And, we talked about why we are NOT moving. Right now.

Was a month of risks, and of starting the {yet to be finished} craft room.
Launched the summer of fun series that took me on a crazy whirl-wind tour of the NW and lasted through September. 

Included creating a capiz pendant and learning many lessons from painting a high-gloss black navy blue door.

Was all about our new gallery wall and a variety of living room updates.



Was all about the holidays. Of course.

I think what I love most about the last year is how many big house projects we tackled. Especially compared to last year. I feel like we really made a dent in our house project list.

I'm linking up to Southern Hospitality's link party. I can't wait to read everyone's lists! :)


  1. I love the recap! You managed to get so many projects done! Very impressive. I want to go back and do my own recap now. =)

  2. The gallery wall is what roped me in and I've been loving seeing all your projects unfold since:) Keep up the great work!!

And 2011 has been quite a year as well - you have a ton of really awesome projects under your belt for the year.
