Knick of Time’s Favorite Projects of 2019

Thanks for joining me for a look back at my top ten favorite projects of 2019!

Looking back this past year, a lot has transpired.  My husband took a new job, which is great, but he travels four days each week.

After living on his own for six months, my youngest son moved back home to save money for college.  I love having him back, but it means no more craft room!

Our house needs lots of work, especially our bedroom.  We started remodeling by adding shiplap to the walls but stopped for some other pressing project, but it’s high time to finish the room.

My health also took a downward turn, so I stepped back from blogging as much as I have in previous years.

The change meant I had to use my left hand more to work on projects.  I’m right-handed, so that was hard.  I’m working hard to get my right hand working like before.

But I still made plenty of cool projects with more help from my husband.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane from this past year.

All photos have links below them to detailed information about each project.

I still have the other identical unfinished table to work on.  The only problem is I haven’t decided how to fix it up yet.  That’s a project for this year.

My oldest son likes to cook and bake and is collecting family recipes, so I gifted this recipe box to him.

  1. I love ALL of your projects. I’m definitely going to make some of those books! I’m sorry you’ve had some health struggles. Praying for healing in 2020.

  2. Hi Angie,
    It is so expensive for young adults to live on their own so I am glad your son is back home to save money for college. I hope your health is improving in the new year and I am happy your husband got a new job sorry he has to be away.
    Love looking back at all your creative talents. Happy New Year and may this year bring you less struggles with health and more joy and happiness and new blogging adventures.

    Beautiful projects here, loving that pallet wood hanging planter. Would look perfect in our garden shed, my daughter has been saying that the rustic look is very trendy at the moment. I think it’s the sort of thing hubby could bang together, will get him onto it asap ha ha … thanks for all the great ideas!
