Our Top 13 Blog Posts of 2013

Happy New Year, 
Memory Bound friends!
We hope everyone had a safe and happy celebration to welcome the year 2014! A new year gives us the opportunity to reflect on the year which just ended. With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of our 
TOP 13 BLOG POSTS of 2013! 

As I looked back over the past year, a few things came to mind: 

We've had a great year of fun and creativity at Memory Bound! WOW! 2013 was packed with classes, special events, and fantastic paper-crafting projects -- too many to mention! 

Based on the number of "page views", we can see that more and more customers are reading our blog for inspiration. Thank you so much for visiting! We love blog comments and look forward to reading more comments in 2014! 

Posts about upcoming classes are very popular -- so popular that I couldn't choose just one to share, so I did not include class posts on our Top 13 list. Keep visiting our blog in 2014 for detailed info about the great classes you'll find ONLY at Memory Bound!
So without further ado...and in no particular are our TOP 13 BLOG POSTS of 2013! Or -- because it was impossible to choose -- at least some of our favorites! Click on the links provided to read them all!

 Dawn's Scrap Room Series
Without a doubt the most popular blog posts of the year featured Dawn's Scrap Room. This six-part series showed how Dawn started from scratch to create a beautiful work space:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
Betsy's Card Box 
Some of our most popular posts featured staff projects. Betsy's card box, made as a gift for her grandma, combines two of our favorite topics -- card making and organization!

Who could forget the day that Channel 13 came to Memory Bound? Our "We Are Big News!" post was one of the year's most popular! Who knows...maybe the folks from DUCK DYNASTY will visit in 2014! :)

Magnetic Die Storage
Everyone loves posts about getting organized! With all of the metal dies on the market, our Magnetic Die Storage post was one of the year's most popular.

Scrapbooking Garage Sale
And who doesn't love a scrapbooking garage sale? We look forward to these big events throughout the year so we can clear out the old to make room for the new! All of our garage sale posts were very popular this past year. This is a good reminder to get ready for our next garage sale, planned for April!

Scenes from Our Wedding Showcase
We had several open houses throughout the year featuring ideas GALORE to inspire you! From weddings to Halloween, graduation to Christmas...the Memory Bound staff put together fantastic displays of project ideas. Our Wedding Showcase post featured many inspiring photos!

Diane's Hawaii Album
Everyone loves our "Staff Project" posts -- so much that I couldn't choose just one. Diane's amazing Hawaii album was one of the most-viewed posts.

Holiday Crafting with Dawn
Dawn used her beautiful new craft room to create several great Christmas projects. I'm sure this popular post will continue to inspire for years to come!

Pat had her video debut in this post featuring an adorable scoring board project for Father's Day! I sure hope a sequel is in the works! :)

Tulle Balls 
Who could forget Maggie's tulle balls? Perfect for any special occasion, tulle balls can be used to decorate your event venue or even a bedroom!

We love our Washi tape, and Gloria's innovative idea for Washi tape storage using a spice rack was one of the year's most popular posts!

Washi Tape Bows
Speaking of Washi tape, our Washi Tape Bows post featuring an idea from October Afternoon inspired many customers to give it a try!

Life is Short
And finally, this post was one of our all-time favorites. Click on the link to see it. Great advice in any year! :)

 Happy New Year, everyone! We look forward another year of inspiration and creativity in 2014!
