And the #1 project that totally surprised me was my project and review of Valspar Chalky Paint. I really think it was my review that drew in the page views, more than the projects I made using the paint.

It received lots of comments, and was shared a lot on social media and pinned a lot on Pinterest.  I hope to do more new product reviews in 2016.

Even though my #2 post is specifically a Christmas post, it’s consistently on of my most viewed posts for the last several years, in part because I’m always adding more printable pages to it, so the collection keeps growing.

  9. Hi Angie,

    I just discovered your site while searching for vintage sheet music. I am interested in using some of your images as backdrop, in the lines of mixed media work, for polymer clay relief sculpture. At some point in the future, I hope to be able to sell the artwork. I wanted to email you for permission but the email link brings me to Outlook which I do not use. Please email me in return – and thank you! Wonderful site 🙂 .
