Top Ten Projects in 2011

This has been such a fun year!  I had been blogging for years, but in August 2009, as Little B began kindergarten and I took on a new role as her full-time teacher, I stepped away from blogging for a season as I pursued a major learning curve, homeschooling.  In October 2011, I realized that I desperately needed an outlet again.  A means to express my love for decorating and organization!  A forum where I could let my love of writing and photography flow!  I could hardly contain myself as I published my first post on It’s Overflowing, after over two years of being away.  A few of my sweet bloggy friends have giggled with me at my enthusiasm.  I think stepping away has helped me realize how much I absolutely LOVE being here!  I love expressing myself, creating, but most of all the friendships and encouragement!  As crazy as it sounds because, yes, blogging takes a lot of work, blogging totally energizes me!

    I’m a newer blogger, but I imagine things have changed considerably in the 2 years you’ve been away?
    It’s definitely filled a void in my life as I was craving a creative outlet and adult interaction (I’m a sahm to 2 toddlers). I had no idea how fulfilling blogging would be. You’ve already had so many gorgeous projects, and I’m looking forward to seeing more in the coming year!

  15. Love them all! Beautiful home and so glad you decided to return to the blog world!
