Happy New Year friends!!!!
I cant believe another year has come and gone and now here we are in 2013!!
I hope you all are enjoying the newness of a new year and are ready to become a better you in 2013. I know that I am ready to tackle my “to do list” and my “to be list”. But that is a whole other post completely!
Today I wanted to offer a big thank you to all of you that take the time to read this blog and to encourage and accept me into the wonderful blogging community that I so love!!
In the last few months of 2012 I shared with you many of the things we have accomplished over at our Little Estate. I decided to pick a few today to highlight–the posts that my readers seemed to like the most!
Click on the pictures below and they will take you right to the specific post!!!
Feel free to visit some of the posts that you may have missed or to re visit one of your favourites. 🙂
Our master bedroom dresser redo and our chalkboard wall was a labour of love.
Our entry way was completed for around $30!!
The blue was a bold choice but one that I still love and one that gets complimented all of the time. 🙂
This easy crock pot chicken stew is a go to meal for our family, especially in the winter and during a busy week. Every busy family likes a little help!
Our kitchen is finally completed! We showed you the final product that we did all by ourselves.
We have a simple, kid friendly dining room, and you seemed to love the reupholstered chairs that make mommas and kids happy.
Our living room, and specifically our coffee table got a BIG makeover this year!
And lastly, I shared with you an easy recipe for melt in your mouth pastry crust. Mmmmmm. Good year round!
Thank you for your messages and comments, they truly make my day and are the reason I want to share and let you know about the easy way to do just about anything DIY!

I use that same crust recipe everytime! In fact I have it memorized. I wish I could make my home look do beautiful but I fear these pack of babies would ruin everything!!!
My husband and I decided to wait until they were teenagers and then re do the whole entire house!!!!

Hanna, my kids have been around items not meant for their little hands since birth and they have never been into touching any of it! I dont know if I could do the same thing but they are very into their own toys! lol I hope you are able to keep up with your pack of babies, knowing you, you wont miss a step!!:)
