2014 is almost over and what a year we have had here on Live it. Love it. Make it. We have more of you reading our blog than ever before and it makes us feel truly humbled that so many of you are enjoying what we share here. We would not get the opportunities that we have had this year if it wasn't for all your support. Before 2015 gets into full swing we wanted to go back and remember some of our personal favourite posts from the year.
Jan - Understanding a Dress Pattern
The Series of posts I (Sammy) wrote about how to navigate your way through a paper pattern has been one of our most viewed series this year and one of my favourite to write. Are there any other things like this that you struggle with? Let us know and we might be able to turn it into a post for you.
These biscuits are AMAZING and so simple to make, they had to make it into a top list somewhere. They would make a great Christmas Party something to take too, although be warned, they are rock hard after a day due to the golden syrup in them. Bake them in the morning and they will be great for that evening.
March - Our Liberty Adventure
In March we got to visit Liberty thanks to the lovely girls of the New Craft Society to hear about Liberty fabrics and have afternoon tea. It was a lovely experience and one we will never forget.
April - Our Tea and Crafting Adventure
We loved going to see the Tea and Crafting workshop space for the first time and have been again since. In April it was to learn machine embroidery though and it was great fun, we instantly became hooked!
May - Blogtacular
We headed to London for our first blog convention. We had such an amazing time, got to meet some of our blogging idols and made some lovely new friends. Despite H and I both being rather poorly all weekend.
Well, we couldn't do this without mentioning one of our biggest moments this year. We got a project featured in Mollie Makes! And an interview too, it's still exciting and we loved being part of it, fingers crossed we can do it again soon.
July - Brush Up Those Blogging Skills
For Me (Sammy) July was all about learning, I shared my favourite Blogging e-courses that I have taken in the past and learnt some new crafts on my road trip to Austria.
August - How we Wear New Look Special
We loved working with New Look and this is one of my (H) favourite How we Wear posts of the year, we look so glam! Plus we got to work with one of our favourite brands - what's not to like!
September - Make it: Cable Cosy
By far our most popular tutorial of this year and my (Sammy) favourite has to be the cable cosy we made in Makers month. With the help of Dashwood Studio's gorgeous fabric and a need to store all my cables in one place this cosy is my favourite post of the year.
October - Make it: Spooky Spiders and Vampire Bats
Who doesn't love some spiders and bats for Halloween! Such a simple make to decorate the place or just be a fun make with the kids for the time of year.
On a personal note (Sammy) opening my shop to a whole new customer base made my November, heck it made my year! After working on it for so long it was such a relief to have the site go live. We have had such a lovely response and lots of lovely sales.
December - Gift Wrapped
The best part of Christmas for us is the giving of presents and what better way for us to enjoy it, than some amazing gift wrapping. The gift is just part of it!
Wow! what a year it has been! What have been your highlights from 2014? and what are you looking forward to next year?
