2014 has been good to Ivy & Co. Real good.
Here are a few highlights:
-Ivy & Co. became an actual business, a.k.a. I pay taxes on it. Woohoo!
-I successfully sold my products at the Seabury Hall Craft Fair, my first big event as a business.
-We moved to Kauai!
-I was asked by ROSS Dress for Less to review their new store on Kauai!
-A lady named "Nancy Nette" stole my domain name, www.ivy-and-co.com, and tried to sell it back to me for $800. That was fun, and thus the reason why we can now be found at www.THEivyandco.com.
-And perhaps my biggest goal, which I set at the start of the year-- Ivy & Co. is now in 6 different retail shops on Maui, Kauai and Portland!
With all that said, there are still 10 other posts that had more page views than any other this year!
Let's break it down.
How To Recover A Vintage Train Case.
Antique Dresser in one of them. Kit went back later and bought the dresser for me, not the house. I was perfectly fine with that!
#4 - This family heirloom got a makeover, and it resembles my favorite movie, The Wizard Of Oz.
#5 - People loved hearing about my journey into Maui Children's Bookstore. This shop is directly across from my workplace (a dance studio) on Maui, so I think a lot of my readers liked seeing a familiar spot on my blog, and there's also a little bit of an awe factor that they're carrying Ivy & Co.!
How To Tie Your Boho Head Wrap. Yes, that's me modeling.
#7 - It's official. 2014 was the year of the black. I painted more pieces black than I can count! This post was a small roundup, and now I have even more to add to the list!
#8 - I discovered a new love: doilies. I sew them along a strip of bias tape and make my own bunting. I kind of love it.
#9 - This Black Chalk Paint Vanity brought me to tears, many times over.
#10 - Perhaps one of my favorite posts of the year: Teaching Memory Verses to Pre-Schoolers. This is real life with Ivy, and a special gift that will be written on her heart for years to come.
So, did your favorite Ivy & Co. post make it on the Top 10?
It's time for me to think about some Ivy & Co. goals for 2015. After all, I told myself at the start of 2014 that I wanted to be in 1 shop by the end of the year… now I'm in 6!
Happy New Year to you all. Hau'oli Maka Hiki Hou!
