2015 Year in Review

I could not decide whether to post a year in review or not. 
As I looked through my 2015 blog posts, 
I realized there are quite a few projects from 2015 
that I haven't even shared with you, yet! 
I've been a bad blogger.

I decided to go ahead with the review anyway.
In place of all the home projects I've neglected to share with you,
(get ready to see them in 2016)
I have added special family events instead.
Here goes:

In March, I posted how I made a

My son went to his Junior High semi-formal dance.

I put together quite a few costumes in 2015.
The first was
"Edwina Scissorhands" 
for a party my daughter attended in March.
They had to dress like a character from a movie.

In April, 
 I was completely honored to have my umbrella wreath

In May, my daughter was inducted into
The National Honor Society.

Also in May,
my daughter went to Prom and was
crowned PROM QUEEN!
(We were so surprised!)

In June, my son graduated from Junior High.

In July, I rescued a little side table that was perfect for my living room.

In August, I shared our

Back to the costume creations...

In October, my daughter had another costume party to attend.
This time, she wanted to be the 
Mad Hatter.
We channeled Johnny Depp's version here.

Then for my final costume of the year,
my son had a costume concert at school.
He plays cello & wanted to dress as a garden gnome.  

In November,
we took a trip to Orlando, Florida
for a well deserved vacation. 

 That pretty much sums up 2015 for us.  

I'm looking forward to 2016
and sharing a lot of projects with you!
