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.

  • There are quite a few new faces around here since the last time I did a little "things about me" introduction. I love sharing strange bits about me and knowing who else out there can relate. Make sure to let me know in the comments. So let's get going on one shall we.⠀
1. Hey, I'm Codi Lynn. People close to me call me Codi. My name has forever been spelled wrong, one time the guy at Starbucks spelt it right and my eyes got so wide in shock... then I realized I was wearing a name tag.⠀
2. I haven't always had glasses, when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Sophie I realized I could no longer read the TV guide without squinting. When I got my prescription I found out it is common for pregnant woman to loose their eyesight... just another joy of pregnancy right there.⠀
3. I only just figured out how to pencil in my eye brows and not gonna lie, pretty pumped about it.⠀
4. A part of me wants to move away and experience more of the world but then the majority of me never wants to leave the area where my Mom, Dad and sisters are.⠀
5. My husband is convinced that one day I will like mushrooms. That's never going to happen. •

  • Somehow these two + Ezra made it into bed before 8 tonight, I'd call that a summer miracle.
•
This summer bed times have been all over the place. Do you as a family stick to a routine or find you stay up later in the summer months? Love to hear how you guys roll! We are pretty well all over the place with some decently late nights lately, which made tonight feel so so good.

  • These two are kind of like watching a game of cat and mouse. Here the cat is teasing the little mouse with her rose that somehow perfectly matches her @pemberleyco dress.

  • Had a night away tonight and I have a couple things to say about it.
1. I bought the new Almond Frap from Starbucks on the way out and it was 👎🏻😩🤢 Anyone else tried it? Better yet, what's your fav Starbucks cold drink?
2. Tonight speaking at @briteup_etsyyvr's social media event was such a joy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE connecting with people in real life and being and able to share what I've learned to help them reach their goals. Seriously, such a thrill!
