2017 was by far the best blogging year for me. On a creative level, I'm happy with my achievements, and think I did pretty darn good coming up with a few unique ideas. On a personal level, I think I really upped my game on styling and shooting for photographs. Moving forward, I would really like to learn how to do tutorial videos, but I'm still in the infancy stages of learning what I need and how to work it. So I'm not counting my chickens just yet.

But overall I've been really pleased on where this blog is going, and as I gathered the images for today's post, I can see where my interests take me more and more. You'll notice then that my favourites from this past year include a handful of wrapping posts. No surprise there, right? Of course, there's half a dozen paper/washi projects that made this list too. And last, I tossed a bunch into the "other" category that includes a few yarn projects, and decorations for the home.

So without further adieu...




Gift wrapping ideas:

From tassels and stamps, to confetti and tinsel, there are so many ways to wrap that present. In this list, you'll also find a couple of seasonal ideas.

Paper & washi tape crafts:

Simple crafts can turn into statement pieces. I always like to say it with pretty paper and washi tape.
