Looking Back To All My Projects In 2011 . . .



Looking back, I sure was busy in 2011.  I must have had home projects going on 10 of the 12 months.


The Kitchen was completely re done,
Built a Faux Fireplace,
Built two Desks,
New Flooring for the entire downstairs,
Created a Front Porch,
Numerous crafty projects.

I look at the photos of the "Before Kitchen" and still ask myself, "Did I do that?"

  
The kitchen today.




Then both Mr. N and I needed a desk for ourselves and the lack of space caused me to get my creative juices flowing.  I could not find two desks to fit anywhere in the house, so I simply built both of them.  My laptop desk was built in an odd space behind the kitchen dishwasher cabinet.  It's now my favorite space to do my PC work and I have somewhere to store my purse each day. 
Mr. N is very happy with his space. Now he can find 'his' stuff and not insist "I tossed it".

Then there was the Fireplace and new Flooring I've been wanting forever.




My final project for 2011 was my new Front Porch.
That was a fun messy project.
Now I can sit and watch the world go by and no longer have the snakes and puddles in the mud.

Before.


After


Thinking back to 2011 puts a smile on my face for so many reasons.   My Cardio Doc is  happy to see me each 3 month check up, when he really did not expect me to live this long.

This was indeed a busy, happy, healthy year!

"Bring on 2012" 
It's going to be even better!
