As I do at the close of every year, I spent some quiet Me time reflecting on the blessings, gifts, lessons, and challenges of 2015. In the spirit of reflection, I thought I would share my 10 Most Popular Posts of 2015 with you today.
When I checked my blog analytics, some of the posts that made the list surprised me. You think the posts that were the most time consuming and challenging would be the ones that would make the list, but oftentimes it's the quick and easy projects that are the most popular.

Most Viewed Post of 2015From 70's Coffee Table to Upholstered Bench
I made this bench for my son and his girlfriend for their new home. It's been a hit both on my blog and in real time. I'm happy to report that it's held up well in their high traffic front entry.
It has been such an amazing blogging year and so much fun to look back at all the projects completed over the year. What I've enjoyed most, are the friendships and connections that I've made through this little corner of the blogosphere.
I would like to take this time to give a BIG Thank You to each and every one of you for taking the time out of your busy lives to stop by for a visit. I value your friendship, readership, comments, support, and encouragement more than you know.
Wishing you all a
Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, and Creative
