Best of 2015 & Hello 2016

Hi friends! Happy New Year, its totally ok to say Happy New a couple of weeks in to 2016, right? First I wanna sorry I've been MIA around on my blog, I have been active on Instagram, follow me at @mrsclh to see what I'm up to. I took a little time away from my blog to focus on my family and I've also been hard at work designing my own blog, before the end of the month I'm switching from blogspot to SquareSpace and I'm so freaking excited about the change + can't wait to share with you all the design! Even though we're two weeks into the New Year, let's take a quick look at last year. 2015 was an exciting busy year, two stamps in my passport, became a DIY Influencer for The Home Depot, Transformed a shed into a She Shed Cottage with The Home Depot & Tuff Shed, my DIY BBQ Cart was featured in The Old House Magazine and best of all my family got more settled into our home. 

Here are some of the highlights of 2015, in no particular order.

Hello 2016

I have so many long overdue projects that I want to tackle this year, I have four on my list that are my absolute priority. Here are my top for projects: Master Bedroom Refresh, Master Bathroom, Hallway & Linen Closet and lastly but very important finishing up our Laundry Room / Mudroom. These four projects have been on my mind and so exciting to whip out my paint brushes, hunt Craigslist, Hang artwork and most of all transform these areas in our home that are super hardworking into lovely spaces that are Modern + Classic and organized. Getting them organized is super crucial since we're small house dwellers. 

In addition to working on these projects in 2016, I'll also be sharing more about how my family lives in our small space and creative design solutions for small space home owners / apartment dwellers along with sharing lots of design inspiration. I'm also doing some more traveling overseas this year and plan incorporating some travel into the blog. I promise my travel posts won't be the boring travel recap lol!  

In addition, I'm starting a newsletter in 2016 to share some fun creative & easy DIY Projects, so make sure you sign up for the exclusive content. 

What are you plans for 2016?
