A Year in Review: Top 3 Most Popular Posts of 2017

As the year comes to an end, I think it's only normal to reflect and reminisce on the past year. There were highs, lows, and everything in between. For us, 2017 was the year that we took the plunge and made some scary changes to our business. We discontinued our jewelry line, introduced a concrete collection, added air plants, started making YouTube videos, and blogged more. This past year has been all about experimenting when it comes to our content.  We've made how-to videos, shown entertaining ideas, gift guides, and even a couple of DIY projects, too. Seriously though, it feels like we've done a little bit of everything.

Among all of the posts and videos, there were three in particular that were more popular than others. So, in case you missed them, I'm highlighting all three again.  Here are our top three most popular posts of 2017. 


1.  How to Plant and Care for Succulents

When we introduced our new concrete collection at the beginning of the year, we started using the concrete vessels mostly as succulent planters. Although, you can use them for just about anything you can imagine. 

Succulents are one of those plants that are tricky to plant and care for, depending on the climate you live in. In this post, we break down how to properly plant and care for succulents.



2. How to Float Mount Art in a Picture Frame

This was our most viewed video of the year. In this step-by-step blog post and video, I show you how to get that art gallery look by updating your framed pictures with the float mounting technique. This technique works especially well with our canvas art prints or any piece of art with a unique texture or edge.



3. 2017 Desktop Calendar Free Download

This is the second year that we have made a desktop calendar as a free download! It originally started with making one for myself and sharing it back in 2016. It's been a hit both years, so we have decided to keep the tradition going for the third year in a row. The 2018 calendar will be ready just in time for the new year!
