Making Home Base Top 5 Posts of 2012

Wow! As we wrap up 2012 I just  can’t believe what a whirlwind this year has been. Lots of ups and downs for my family. One of my biggest joys this year has been this blog. I started it late into the year but since it’s beginning it has been a great adventure and I’ve really enjoyed sharing my latest projects with you all.

Now, I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted to post a “best of 2012″ post because well, this blog hasn’t been around long so you really don’t have to go too far back into your memories to recall any of my posts. Although, after reading lots of best of posts around blogland I decided I wanted to jump in!

Top 5 of 2012

So, without further ado here are the Top 5 Posts of 2012 according to YOU.
