This is my favorite part of the year, when I get to go back through all of my posts and analyze which ones did the best. It gets me so excited and geared up for the new year, because now I know what you want more of – colorful and simple ideas with few supplies, and ideas that transcend age!! It’s so cool.
I do have a confession to make, though. Even though I titled the main collage “Top Ten”, there are really sixteen!! It was too impossible for me not to include more.
Are you ready? Here we go, starting from the beginning of 2016…
