The year 2022 was my first year as a home blogger. We accomplished so many DIY home projects it blows my mind.

This year Jeremy worked a demanding job and I simultaneously homeschooled an elementary student, middle schooler, and high schooler, We didn’t always have a lot of time to put towards home renovations, but I’ve learned that small projects can go a long way. Here are some of Pure Happy Home’s most popular of 2022, along with a few of my favorites.

This last year I began to try my hand at crafts. In the past I’ve been frustrated by how my craft projects have turned out, but I’m getting better. Learning something new takes time and I’m excited to try several new craft project in the New Year. This jute vase craft was very successful, love all three of the vases I made.

This was a surprisingly successful DIY. I had never used a stencil before, and it was a little more tedious than I would have liked, but the results made it one hundred percent worth it. See for yourself here.

Light Fixture Thrift Flip

This Thrift flip amazed me. My daughter and I make an excellent team. You won’t believe what she made this out of. Go see it here!

 

Thank you for your encouragement and support over the last year. Every comment that either upholds me or inspires me is so greatly appreciated. In the DIY design world we share the same goal of making our homes places of beauty and peace.

I hope I’ve given you ideas that you want to use in your own spaces. It’s my belief  we can not only improve our homes, but make them places we can’t wait to come home to again and again.
