Alright. So who knew when we started this little 12 Months of DIY journey last January, that I’d end up with a bunch of projects that I use on a daily basis? I stood back and took stock of all we’ve accomplished this year and realized some of these DIYs are invaluable to me now, and I had even forgotten that they started out as a 12 Months, project!
It was hard to pick a fave. But I settled on my 10 Minute Infinity Scarf. Mostly because it was one of those things I wanted, and needed, but it had never actually occurred to me to make my own (silly as that sounds), until the challenge presented itself. I planned it on the fly, figured out my pattern, which ended up feeling genius in its simplicity, and you guessed it… 10 minutes later I had a scarf I loved and wore everyday for probably three months straight. It was simple, it was easily adaptable to any style, and could fit any crafters budget. It was the perfect project.

But in classic Jen style, I had a couple runner’s up. I use these EVERY DAY! It’s ridiculous I ever went through life without these before the 12 Months of DIY Challenge. They are…
My January – DIY Coffee Travel Mug…
My May – Decoupage Foot Stool…
Did you miss one or two 12 Months of DIY projects this year? Here’s the complete list to get all caught up!
What an incredible journey this year has been with my “12 Months” pals. This is truly the nicest group of gals I could ever ask to work with, and I’ve developed relationships that I know will last a lifetime. I feel it’s so important to have a positive connection with your peers, whatever profession you’re in, but even that much more as a blogger. Let’s face it, blogging can be a lonely existence, if you let it. Reaching out and making virtual connections, working towards a goal together, and leaning on each other, was what made the 12 Months of DIY Challenge so valuable.
I’ve been lucky enough to turn some of these blogging friendships into face-to-face friendships and I could not be more grateful. And don’t you worry, I have a feeling any number of us will end up working together again in one way or another! It was just too good. ;)
