My Wee Abode is one year old! Yep, and what better way to celebrate this one-year blogiversary in a small home than with a giveaway?
ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY IN A SMALL HOME AND GIVEAWAY!
Hey, friends!!! So glad you are joining us today because today is special! Just a wee bit over a year ago, after spending WAY too long trying to make this blog ‘perfect’, I finally clicked the ‘Publish’ button for the first time, and My Wee Abode was born!
My Wee Abode continues to share its decor, DIYs, and small home solutions because of all of YOU! I am SO grateful that you have chosen to be part of the MWA community!
Y’all are just a blessing!
To celebrate the blogiversary, let’s do a few things, shall we?
Why These Posts?
First, let’s take a look at a few posts that are especially dear to my heart, and I’ll tell you why they are so special to me.
You may be surprised.
My very first post is pretty close to the top of the list!
I loved sharing my home for the very first time, on my very first post. I loved sharing the good and bad of living in a small home, along with other ideas I had for MWA.
However, I had never picked up a DSLR until January of 2018 (when My Wee Abode was born). So, my daughter ‘volunteered’ to help me with my first photos!
But she didn’t help me with the editing.
So much to learn… and still learn.
This post is a fave of mine because it shows me how far I have come in the past year, and it will be a constant reminder for many more year (Lord-willing).
By the way… *I* took this photo just several months later! 😉 Still, lots to learn, but it’s gettin’ there!
My second post is making the list, too!
Creating and sharing these free printables, along with a tutorial for a frame collage, was so fun, and hopefully inspiring to you! And, again, I learned so much from this post.
Like how to take a ‘flat-lay’ photo.
Do you know how long it takes to write out instructions for a DIY? Well, I got my first taste of how long!
And you learn how to print notes and instructions on a photo.
Oh, and there’s also the realization of just how stinking hard it is to take photos in a bathroom! (Hint, the shower isn’t just for bathing anymore!)
Okay, okay… this is the last of the ‘early months’. But, I must say, sharing small home storage solutions really is something I love to do.
So, the plan this year is to share more apartment, rental space, and tiny house solutions! Like this one!
(Oh man… there’s a spot on the rug! Do you see it? #photoshopfail)
Okay… this is still an early one, but this is short and sweet. The reason this is at the top of the list?
Okay… This… this has been an amazing addition to My Wee Abode (dare I say a ‘lifesaver’?). And, if you are looking to add a closet to a room, without using any power tools…
This is the closet hack for you… seriously.
Okay… I’m going to ‘close’ my favorite posts with this one…
Mainly because I want to get to the giveaway, don’t you? I thought so.
To date, this is my fave post, by far. Why?
Because now you can DIY your own designer-look velvet pumpkins…
Plus, these velvet pumpkins were super fun to style!
And… I gotta be honest here… my photography ROCKED! Praise the Lord!!!!
Seriously… nothing good comes from this blog except through His grace and enabling.
Okay… Let’s Get To the GIVEAWAY!
