December In Review

Happy New Years Eve everyone! It’s officially time to close out 2012 and complete the Holiday posts for the year. What a season it has been! Last week, I shared the Top DDD Posts of 2012 and today I’m closing out the month of December with a quick recap.

I think I did more Christmas projects this year than ever before and I had a blast. So get ready for a recap of some fun Christmas ideas and make sure to pin them for next year :)
