How was your Christmas holiday? I am still in a cookie coma and have a fun filled week planned with the kiddos, however, it dawned on me this weekend that it was time for our final link party of the year! Let's end the year on a high note!
I don't know about you, but I LOVE this time of the month when you get to stop by and share your organizing projects with me! You can see many of the projects submitted last month in the recap post here. I think that will sum up the importance of these challenges and why I absolutely LOVE when you take a moment to share your projects with this amazing community. And remember, I love seeing anything and everything from organizing a purse or drawer to making over a closet or piece of furniture.
It has continued to be busy around here as we finished up a few organizing projects and even a master bedroom refresh to ramp up for our big kitchen update. Here is a round-up of some of our favorite projects since our previous link party.
Knowing that our kitchen was about to be ripped to pieces, I knew we would crave a relaxing place to rest our heads in-between demo and installation. A little master bedroom and dressing room update and now we struggle to get out of bed to work on the kitchen. Funny how that goes, isn't it?!
And you can find out how we saved on that refresh here.
I was so honored when Home Depot offered to work with me on a fun painting project. I instantly jumped at the opportunity to finish up a gallery wall we have been planning for years.
Although it took us over a year to organize all of our storage areas (closets, garage, shed and storage room), we finally did it! It was my goal to have our storage room organized with all of our tools for the kitchen renovation, and that was the final space to complete before kicking off our biggest project yet. It was such a victory for us, we are still celebrating the outcome!
In-between finishing our storage room and putting a hole in our wall, I took a few days to head to Texas. There was no lounging about it, I was there to work with a dear friend to organize her office / guest room. We were both thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate, and I was so sad to leave her (and her amazing space)!
The holidays decided to sneak up on us, so we began decking the halls and walls. This year I was all about quick and easy projects and I kicked things off with some no sew embellished kitchen towels.
As far as decking the halls was concerned, we decided to let it snow!
And to deck the walls we went with some glam diy gold foil art.
We shared the remainder of our simplified holiday decorating here.
Along with all of the fun projects we have been working on, I also finished my five year blogiversary series. If you are looking to catch up on some behind the scenes blog reading, you can check those posts out here:

Now, it is your turn to link up and share your favorite projects with me!
As always, an over-sized thank you to all who participate in these challenges. Checking out your posts is my guilty pleasure every month, so bring it on! This month I will also be sharing some of your projects via social media and as always, will be doing a recap at the end of the party.
Psssst! I can't begin to express to you how excited and grateful I am for the number of inquiries I received in response to my call for 2015 contributors! I received such an overwhelming response, I have been making sure to give each submission my full attention. I hope to have decisions made and emails sent within the next few days. Smooches to everyone that took time to write in!
