Happy last day of 2014 friends!!

I don’t know about you, but to me that just looks and sounds crazy! 

But we are here again, saying farewell to another year, and welcoming in a wonderful new year full of hope, promise, and
some projects we can work on together!!

I want to thank you for your continued reading, encouragement, and ideas.
This has been an interesting year, with a mix of loss, joy, excitement, and truth telling.
Mixed in there was a whole bunch of laughter, hot glue sticks, and learning that made it a wonderful blogging year here
at twelveOeight.  And I have you to thank for that.  If you didn’t keep on coming back and reading, pinning and sharing
there would be no twelveOeight.

So thank you, thank you for making my dream grow, and turn into something unique and different, and far more wonderful
than I could have dreamed on my own.

Here are some of the DIY Projects that you loved this year, ready?

 Sharing my story & my struggles was one of the hardest and most liberating things
I have ever done.  I was so encouraged to receive so many positive messages
of hope and stories of restoration in your lives too…

What a fun, sometimes challenging and busy, blessed year.  

I am SO thankful for you, your continued support, encouraging comments and ideas, you are just wonderful!
Every time I make something or snap a photo, I do it with you and what you are interested in on my mind,
having said that, let me know what you think! I love to hear your ideas, suggestions (and a few of you have a keen eye
for recipe editing thank goodness! Because I have been known to share a recipe missing something in my excitement
to sit down and eat cookies with you.) 

Wishing you a wonderful, fun, abundant and blessed new year friend, I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store…
