A Look Back On An Amazing Year

Happy New Year Everyone!!!
2011 was such a good year for me…
I started Liz Marie Blog,
I discovered my love & passion for re-doing furniture,
My husband wasn’t deployed,
My husband & I made some awesome memories,
A few of my best friends had babies,
I made some new amazing friends,
I could go on & on about how good 2011 was,
but I want to focus on my blog…
In 2011 I found a passion for blogging about my
love for all things crafty & DIY.
So many opportunities have come from my blog &
I have met some pretty awesome people through my blog as well.
I can’t wait to see what 2012
will have to offer for Liz Marie Blog.
I also wanted to thank each & every one of you guys for all of
your support & love you show me on my blog…
every single comment, email, tweet, exd.. means so much
to me.. more then you will ever know!
Here’s to an even better 2012!!

  9. I’ve loved following your blog this year when I took a new passion to decorating! My hubby and I were able to buy the house of our dreams and I’ve been looking to your blog for ideas! You are truly talented! I also love following you on Pinterest. The one thing I’m dying to see is your master bedroom. You started with the gray and PB bedding, then you returned it….did you ever create what you were going for?
