Top 10 Posts of 2015

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Even though K and I were under the weather (dang cold, sinuses, and asthma), I still consider it a great success!

We they slept in until 9……even Rudy!

My dang internal clock had me up at 6:00 am! I gave up trying to fall back to sleep…..

    ……made a pot of coffee…… turned on the Christmas Lights……… and snuggled in with a book until the lazy butts ventured down.

I love the peace and quiet of the mornings, so any chance I can let the guys sleep in I take it! 😉

I have to tell you…….this is one of my favorite posts of the year!

A chance to look back on the year, and take a ‘snap shot’ of YOUR favorite posts.

It is awesome to see that some of these posts are a few years old, but still resonate with what people are wanting to learn today!

#10  How to Paint an Old (Ugly) Light Fixture!

Spray painting light fixtures is one of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to update your interior space.  This post being in the top 10 just goes to show you that a lot of people are wanting to get rid of their old brass fixtures, just either don’t have the money for an overhaul, OR can’t justify the swap when the light is still in working condition.   I revamped even more light fixtures with paint here, here, here and this might be my all time favorite!

What was I saying in #10 above?  We all want to update our homes without spending a fortune! I bit the bullet and took a chance on spray painting our family room ceiling fan.  LOVE the results and plan on doing 2 more in the kids bedrooms this year! 😉

#2 How to Create a Transparent Watermark!

With so many of us posting photos online, it is important to take the time and add a watermark.  I am not saying that this is going to prevent someone from passing off your photo as their own……but it will hopefully deter most from trying to steal from you! 

This is one of the easiest tutorials to follow!

This happens to be one of the most frequent questions I am asked, so it is no wonder that all of you in blog and google land are wanting to do this to your stairs also. 😉
