2014 top ten round up!

I spend a lot of time blogging- typically five days a week which means I typically average about 236 posts per year! I love looking back at all the things I have shared at the end of the year and today I picked my favorite 10 posts from this year.

I come up with all kinds of crazy creative DIY projects but the statement wall that I painted spur of moment with a couple bottles of black paint is one of my craziest!

This was the year that I got back to my roots as the daughter of potters and embraced working with clay. The day that my family spent throwing pots on the wheel goes down as the most fun day ever!

We love to collaborate as a family and this collaboration post, complete with video of the process is one of my all time favorite projects!

I will draw or doodle on just about anything but this backpack project was goes down one of my favorite doodling projects. It never ceases to amaze me how much you can do with a paint pen!

One of my most popular posts and one of my favorites is The Art of Chasing a Dream. I share nine videos where I open up and talk about my experiences and tips about chasing after the dream of working as a full time artists.

I was honored and thrilled when UGG Australia asked me to collaborate and interpret their color focused Spring 2014 line, bringing it to life and putting my own creative spin on their inspiration. I shared a fun video and post on traveling the Northern Oregon Coast,  ways that I find inspiration, creating with a kid, throwing a woodland picnic and I even got to design Mother's Day cards for UGG stores! This project was a big creative highlight of my year!

After a couple of years living in our house, we decided that 2014 would be the year that we tackled our backyard and what a project it was! From lots of clearing weeds and berry bushes to leveling and landscaping, after couple of months of work we finally have a backyard perfect for play! We even created a fun fire pit area.

This was the year that I changed the way that I eat by drastically cutting out sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed foods. And while I will never completely eliminate anything completely from my diet the changes made a big impact on the way I felt. You can read all about it HERE

We spend a lot of time exploring and taking small trips outdoors but our October day trip to Oysterville, WA was one that I will always remember as a little extra magical!

Simple projects that cost little to nothing are always my favorites and this driftwood heart might be the cheapest and easiest project that I've created and it is one that I love a lot!
