Review of 2016, I need your help for 2017

2016 has been a varied and exciting year for me. There are many more tutorials added to the blog, which are always popular. A personal highlight was taking part in the 12 days of Christmas DIY Challenge‘s organised by Jill at Creating my Way to Success. During the 12 days I published ten tutorials.

I love the sense of community working with a small group of bloggers. The series found me challenging myself to make video content (see them here).

Financially I have written sponsored tutorials for Volkswagen (there’s more to come in the New Year) plus I am excited to have tutorials published (and coming up) in Reloved magazine. Generating some income from the blog has enabled us to book a family holiday to visit my brother and his family in Amsterdam. I am really excited to have funded this through blogging, never mind being able to have cuddles with my gorgeous baby nephew.

Plus I have reinvested and signed up for the Elite Blogging Academy. I’m not sure where this will take me but I am excited about this coming year:)

So how about you? What have you enjoyed? These are the top clicked posts:

  3. I so loved your twelve days of Christmas! I would love to see more bag tutorials, seems I can never get enough. Happy New Year, looking forward to 2017 and what you bring to my e-mail! 🙂
