Comments Off on Five Favorite Posts of 2016

I was looking back on 2016 through past blog posts and noticing how far Creative Wife and Joyful Worker has come since the beginning of the year. At the start of the year I had no idea what 2016 would bring for the blog and could not have even imagined how far it has come. This year has been huge for meeting new people and networking, you can definitely say that I came out of my shell, a lot! I also recognize so much growth in my writing style and photography.

As I looked over my post from last year highlighting the top posts, I recognize some over lap from what was loved this year as well. Our gift guides and parties have definitely taken the cake for most loved posts over the years, and I have to say they are some of my favorites to put together as well. As the guides I love highlighting my favorite small shops and the planning parties is such a passion of mine that has totally flourished.

So here we have it, our Top Five Most Viewed Posts of 2016

Number Five: 20 Baby-ish Baby Products for Momma

This post has been very much loved on Pinterest and it doesn’t surprise me at all to see it in the top five most viewed. I love that there are so many of you interested in the products that I use and was excited about trying for Evelyn. This post represents so much of why I started my blog and it is such a joy to see that I can successfully show support to the small businesses that I have come to know and love.

Number Four: A Success Story: Vaginal Birth after C-Section

Couldn’t get any more personal then this post right here. One of the things I am the most proud of for 2016 that I was able to put into words to share with all of you. Such a joy.

Number Three: DIY Unicorn Party Hats

This post was actually created in 2015 but it has been one of our most popular posts this year, through pins on Pinterst and views from our Stumbleupon account. My husband even laughed at me when I said I was going to share how I made the these hats, turns out it was a good idea to share after all.

Number Two: What’s Mommy Growing: Gender Reveal

With Evelyn being the first baby that we found out the gender before hand it was so fun to do a little gender reveal post and it got so much love. We created painted potted plants and used little signs to share the gender of our little baby to be.

Number One: Our Lookbooks [ Spring and Holiday]

The Spring lookbook is very very different from the holiday lookbook as I took on so much more with the holiday one teaming up with Julie and bringing all our own photography and designing each page to represent it’s own unique feel. These books were such a joy to make and wrap up in a nutshell why this blog started. Sharing the talent of others and supporting them along the way. It is such a pleasure to continue to focus on and highlight these talented makers that many of them I have personally come to know.

Thank you to each of you for your support of the last two and a half years of creating and sharing on Creative Wife and Joyful Worker. Your love and support is so so much appreciated. I started out thinking how cool it would be if even a handful of people would read each of my posts, no way did I think that hundreds and even thousands would come on by. I am dreaming big for 2017 and am so excited about what this new year will bring. Dream big and then dream even bigger friends.

  • We just booked our hotel room for Portland next weekend and I am so looking forward to some girl time away. I'm packing the suspense novel "Into The Water" by Paula Hawkins and am looking forward to seeing where the story goes. A little uninterrupted reading without getting poked and pulled at ( like the flowers 😂 ) is going to be nice. What's on our want to read list?
