Our favorite crafts of 2013

It is amazing to reflect on the past year of blogging and all that it has brought for Erin and I. I don't think I ever crafted as much as I did in the past year! I learned so much about making quality items, about myself and what I will actually keep, and most of all how to take good quality pictures of the things I was making! Our posts have come so far since the very beginning.

Here are our favorite crafts from the second half of 2013 (you can see our first recap here):

These Polaroid coasters were some of my favorite things that I have ever made...ever! They turned out so cute and they were incredibly cheap to make! They would also be pretty fun to make as gifts for other people!

I was so glad when I finally found a pre-sliced log at Joann's. I always knew that I could cut my own, but making this wood slice chalkboard was just so dang easy! I love the way it worked out and I can't wait to work it into my ever changing decor.

I knew from the very moment I found these espresso cups at our local thrift store that I had finally found the perfect dishware to try out the baked sharpie technique. That mixed with my love of honeycomb print made for the most adorable little espresso mugs. Now just to get an espresso maker...

As the summer ended it was finally time to start bringing all my succulent propagation experiments inside. I made these adorable little hemp and yarn planters to give them a nice home inside.

We get so many compliments on our restyled picnic basket when ever we bring it out and about! We just love it so much. It is amazing what a little bit of paint and patience can do!

One of our favorite crafts from this past year, strictly because of how beautiful it turned out, was our lunar necklace DIY. It seriously turned out so pretty and from items found at our local hardware store (and Joann's of course). 

We cannot wait to get crafting now that it is 2014. Our second year of blogging is sure to bring some fun things! We already have so many ideas planned!

Anything you guys want to see?
