Hello friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
It’s hard to believe that it’s the grande finale for 2015!
As the year draws to a close,
I love taking a look back at some of the fun we’ve had as a family,
the progress we’ve made on our little diamond in the rough of an abode,
and the projects that have been popular here in my corner of the blogosphere!
The Quick Tip Tuesday series is always fun and worthy of an honorable mention!
Here are a few of the most popular tips from the past year………
(a few tips from my framing days).

One of my most pinned projects in almost six years of blogging: how to make your own cornice board, and an easy way to hang it.
This year I starting taking on more client projects, and that has been tons of fun! I am so excited about some client work that is on the horizon for 2016, including having custom drapes and roman shades installed, a fireplace makeover, and freshening up some spaces with new lighting, rugs and artwork.
Coming up in the new year,
I’ll be sharing the reveal of the biggest DIY I took on in 2015 –
the makeover of our fireplace!!!
I finished all the trim work and installed a new hearth since this photo was taken a few weeks ago.
Despite the daunting task of styling more bookshelves (still working on that!),
we love how the fireplace came out and I can’t wait to share it with you!!
so very much for stopping by Shine Your Light.
I love writing about DIY and decorating adventures but mostly I love connecting with you!
Wishing you health, love and
lots of happiness in the coming year!
