Top 10 Crafts & Miscellaneous Posts of 2013

This year we did something a little different on the website–we posted more about ourselves. The gifts we gave away, the parties we threw, and went more in depth about some of the things we dealt with living with a chronic illness.

Thanks for reading, and come back Friday to see what our personal favorites of 2013 were!

#10 PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB

These Peppermint Sugar Scrubs went crazy on Pinterest this winter. They take just a few ingredients and a few minutes to make. We recycled old baby jars and used peppermint essential oils to make ours. These gifts were happily received!

#6 GIVING THANKS FOR GIVING

We love unique contests and this one we worried about how well it would go over on the site. It became our top contest of 2013 with numerous stories of thanks pouring in–even after the contest ended! The stories were amazing and helped us to get through a hard holiday. We loved reading your tender stories of who you would give to. If you have time, head over and read them–just grab some Kleenex first!

#5 NO THERMOMETER SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE

We go to this recipe over and over and over again. (If you’re confused, come back Friday to see our top favorites). Salted caramel sauce was all the rage this year and since I am not one to use fancy gadgets, we found a way to make the salted caramel sauce without the use of a thermometer.
