2014 in review

Hello dear friends I hope that your Christmas was joyous and full of family and friends. I am taking down Christmas and getting ready for the new year when my yearly report from WordPress came in and I want to share it with you. These are the results of my first 9 months of blogging results. Kind of like having a baby. LOL Thank you dear readers!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

I love it when you leave comments, let me know what you would like to see more of.

Have a very warm New Year! Jo

Thanx to all my dear friends that have helped me along the way!

Today I want to show you the winner of the great Christmas table runner and pillow covers but before I do I want to share with you a great memorabilia to make as a gift or for yourself.

BeFunky_M box full.jpg

Remember the old shadow boxes? Well I took them up several notches. Here is the box with all of the fun cubbes. Some of the cubbes I used for the seasons and some for my favorite holidays.

BeFunky_M christmas.jpg

Of course Christmas is one of my favorites. Here I made a little Christmas Eve presentation, the picture is of my siblings and myself on Christmas Eve in our new pjs.

BeFunky_M up close Christmas.jpg

Here is an up close shot. I knew that I saved all of these odds and ends for a reason.

BeFunky_M winter.jpg

Here is a winter box, it is my favorite season. My Grandmother gave me many great old vintage cards and I have used them in the box.

BeFunky_M valentines .jpg

Valentines’s Day is always a fun holiday to decorate for and the vintage cards are so cute.

BeFunky_M val upclose.jpg

I just love the little Angels.

BeFunky_M spring.jpg

Spring is such a great time of year with the renewal of the earth.

BeFunky_M horse.jpg

I grew up on a horse farm in South Jordan, Utah so it was very appropriate for me to add these days of my life.

BeFunky_M lori and I.jpg

This one is my sister and I getting ready for one of our many horse shows when we were very young.

BeFunky_M leather and buckles.jpg

When my Dad passed last year I was given an old wooden suitcase that he kept his leather making tools in along with a lot of old straps and buckles. They are so precious to me. So I used them in the box.

I made two of these boxes to give to my sons who are close around. They have really enjoyed looking at what Mom was. It’s a great keepsake.

Now for the give a way! Remember that the more comments you made and if you brought me a FOLLOWER gave you extra chances to enter. I want to thank you for all of your support and lovely comments.

Drum Roll please . . .

The winner is Kris from Junk Chic Cottage! Congrats to you Kris. Please email me your address so I can get your gift mailed out to you. Enjoy!

Stop back often for some more fun Christmas ideas!

Life is LOVERLY when I am doing what I love!

((WARM HUGS)) Jo
