Break out the bubbly, friends: it’s Flourish & Knot’s first blogiversary!


I really never thought I’d stick with this for a full year. In fact, this should be the blog’s second blogiversary, but since I did a grand total of three posts in the first year, I’m discounting the first 12 months of its existence. 🙂

So, today – Saturday, February 21st – is our official blogiversary! On this date last year I wrote my first post, which got the ball rolling. photo-9

I think that might still be one of my favourite projects! One of the pitfalls of being a DIY blogger is that you always feel the pressure to have a project ready for today’s post. Of course I try to remind myself that I don’t do this for income, so I really have no-one to please but myself; yet, I still fall into the trap of feeling rushed or pressured. That first arrangement was special because I created it solely for pleasure, and then decided “hey, I started that blog thing – maybe I should actually post this!”

Shortly after, I published my first foray into furniture makeovers with my little DIY nightstand project, fondly titled ‘One Nightstand’. Still the snappiest title on this blog. 😉nightstand final

The posts that introduced F&K to a more international audience (hi, Italy!) were about my obsession with love for the ‘Outlander’ series. If you missed those posts, you can find them here, here, and here.


The rest, as they say, is history.

And because every day is a good day for an infographic, I thought I’d try my hand at creating one! Here’s F&K’s first year, by the numbers.


Here’s to the next 12 months of DIY bliss!

P.S. To keep the blogiversary love going, I’m madly working on finishing my music room for a big reveal post tomorrow! Same time, same place. 🙂
