TIMI Top Posts of 2013

Hey friends! I've taken some much needed R&R away from the blog this past week, and to be honest, in the weeks leading up to the holiday, too! I'm hugely neurotic in a plan-ahead-sort of way, and a lot of times, what I'm posting is often written and made weeks in advance.  So, when it's quiet around her on the holidays, it's because during the weeks leading up to it, I was preoccupied with things related to school, with big term papers and whatnot.

Regardless, I felt like I couldn't leave you completely hanging, so I wanted to put together a bit of a 2013 retrospective. It's been a big year, with discovering new paths in grad school, starting a new job in the teaching and museum world, and finally really, truly realizing I'll be in D.C. for a while. Of course, I've continued to DIY non-stop, so here are the most popular posts from Thanks, I Made It in 2013. What project was your favorite?

These DIY hardware store bracelets were a huge hit, online and offline! I've taught tons of my friends how to make them.

I finally got my stud earrings organized with this DIY earring holder for all your tiny pairs.

One of my favorite projects to date, this Fallon-inspired DIY crystal spike necklace is a great piece combining tough spikes with a little luxury.

Originally written for Alyson's site, The Average Girl's Guide, I made these DIY crystal macrame bracelets in cheery summer colors.

Happy New Year, everyone! Thank you so much for reading, DIYing, and supporting Thanks, I Made It this past year. Cheers to a crafty 2014!
