Happy 1st birthday This Little Space of Mine!

Today marks one year since I launched This Little Space of Mine! Happy birthday to… me, I guess! What a year it’s been; with long holidays, weddings and a house move this year has been non-stop but I’ve loved developing This Little Space of Mine and, in the last couple of months, I feel more focused then ever and full of exciting plans.

I’d love to say a big thank you to you for reading and for those especially have been around since day one and visited time and time again. I’m a numbers nerd and I love seeing what’s popular and even what’s not; it’s helped me develop and continue to develop my content. Thank you!

What better a way to celebrate then by looking at my five most popular posts from the last year. Which was your favourite post?

The story of the knitted sky blanket – March 2015. This had to feature, didn’t it? The biggest craft project I’ve taken on; over the course of 14 months making a knitted sky blanket had its highs and lows but I love it and it now sits proudly on our sofa.

A beautiful summer wedding in Gloucestershire – the day my best friend got married – July 2015. Equally pleased to see this; one of my favourite days of the year gone by, it was truly a special time to stand by my best friend as her bridesmaid. And didn’t she look beautiful?

Fudge Kitchen experience in Edinburgh – December 2015. Stu and I love the Fudge Kitchen and treated ourselves to their fudge making experience course when in Edinburgh for our anniversary last year. Great fun, plus we got to take loads of it home!

Learn to knit with Simple Stylish Knitting magazine – March 2015. I remember this post well; I started it by talking about knitting vs. crochet and it certainly generated a bit of discussion! I’ve since learnt how to crochet (hurray!) but knitting will always be my favourite and I love receiving Simple Stylish Knitting through the post once a month.

Getting started with Anna Jones’ ‘A Modern Way to Eat’ – May 2015. My favourite cook book these days, I even have Anna Jones’ second book now. I looked at the contents of the book as well as setting myself the challenge of 5 makes from it, back in May. Oops, I really need to make the final one and talk more about it!

    congratulations on your first successful year on the new blog, and here’s to the next year! I still aspire to one day make a sky blanket too, though I lost interest in my sky scarf towards the end (doh!)! mmm the fudge picture reminds me of that blog post and now I’m all hungry again! jenny xx
