Well folks, the end of the year has come and gone as have many, many blog posts. Some that we care to look back on with pride and others that we will just choose to ignore for now  – that’s the good thing about posting every day and not being too precious about it. Some work and some don’t. We thought it might be fun to take a quick walk down 2015’s memory lane and revisit our most popular postsWithout any further ado we present to you the top 5 most popular posts of the last year (according to which had the most traffic and visits from readers).,. and head down below to find out what OUR favorite 5 posts were.

I’m off til the 4th for some much-needed family time. The blog will be shut down, which is often when I come up with new ideas for series. We are going to blow up the blog next year – more content, more contributors, same amount of personal posts but just more design posts. So let me know any requests you have so we can start brainstorming, conceptualizing and scheduling. I’m very excited.

 

Happy Holidays, friends. Thank you for such a good year. xxxx
