The BIG Post of 2011

On Tuesday, I recapped some of my posts/projects from the past year. 

I spoke of my BIG post of 2011.

Can I just say that I am surprised,
                                             shocked,
                                                amazed,
                                                      flabbergasted,
                                                               perplexed?....well, I think you get the idea.

Back in August, I got the idea to cover a lamp shade.  An ordinary, old lamp shade that I had sitting in the basement.


With a few yards of trim from Joann Fabric and a glue gun, I created a pretty lamp shade that I was very happy with.  I accented it with some little fabric flowers that I had made and that was that. 


When I posted about it, I didn't go into great detail about how I made this lamp shade.  There was no fancy tutorial.  Afterall, I'm no crafting goddess and honestly, it was ruffled trim and hot glue, nothing more.

 

This post  received, to date, 22 comments.  The reason it is called my BIG post of 2011 is because according to my stats, at present time, this post has received some 15,701 page views!  

Can you believe it?  I can't.  I nearly fell off my chair they day I discovered it had 3,000 views.  I could never have imagined over 15,000 views!

Now this may be the norm for some of you girls, but for me and my little blog, it's a huge surprise.  As the post continues to grow, I can't help but giggle and think..seriously?  What exactly has made this so popular? 


I haven't the faintest idea!  That being said, I am thrilled and flattered beyond belief.

So that, my friends, is my BIG post of 2011.

I would like to take the time to say that I am grateful for each & every one of you who follow/read my blog.  Thank you for sticking with me.  You have no idea how much I treasure each of you!

Here's to a spectacular 2012!
