Kicking Off the New Year with the Best of 2012

Hey guys! So…it’s been a while. I took an unplanned, unannounced break from blogging. I really needed it. Blogs are no fun when they feel like work, and I didn’t want to come up with lame excuses on why I wasn’t posting. Mostly, I was just tired. Tired of taking a dozen photos of each project that was already taking all night long to finish. This house is wearing me out. I’m not big on whiny posts, so I just didn’t post. But hopefully we’re on the final stretch, and I can finally get back to some fun stuff! At least, when our water softener isn’t getting fried or our septic contractor isn’t being shot in the leg (unloading his pistol to clean it no less). So, to kick off a new year with (hopefully) new luck and a soon-to-be-finished home, let’s look back at the best of Killer b. in 2012!

This post helped garner over 500,000 views on the blog this year. That blows my mind! I’m hoping to reach as many people this year and share some even more helpful projects! Rounding out the rest of my top 5 of 2012:

Rustic Cooler Tutorial

Easiest T-Shirt Quilt Tutorial

Blue Barn Door Tutorial

Tile Framed Mirror Tutorial

Obviously I’m going to need to keep up with the tutorials! And I’m in luck since we’ve done about 30 projects on the new house so far that I need to write about 🙂 I know I haven’t been all that exciting lately, but I have been doing lots of fun stuff. I’m learning how to launch a small business, building a kitchen from the ground up, and enjoying the amazing toddler era of Charlie. Can’t wait to dive back in and share it all with you guys! And for those who just can’t wait, here’s a little teaser from Instagram:

It’s looking so good! We’re almost there. We spent NYE installing the vent hood and polishing floors. Thrilling I know. But it’s all so we can finish up, move in, and share our story with all of you!

    1. Well, if that isn’t enough motivation to get back to work, I don’t know what is! Thank you so much. It’s my goal here to help inspire all of you to tackle some of the things that have been nagging you for years 🙂 Though mothering 3 boys is inspiring in itself! I cannot fathom your energy, I’m exhausted with one little girl!

    1. Thank you Jennifer! I honestly didn’t expect just how much longer each task would take than estimated. I know I should have, but I didn’t. So things like installing gas logs takes three days of work as opposed to 30 minutes. I’m so ready to wind down and recap!
