In the second half of the year were some of my favorite projects. I noticed a few years ago that every spring I get a surge of inspiration. Must be something in the warm weather that makes me want to get out and make things. Here are the best of Oh Happy Day part 2.

  • I can’t believe how long ago some of these were. I was remembering that Movie Marquee post and telling a friend about it, thinking I had just seen it a couple weeks ago….

    What a great year of posts—thank you!

    Isn’t it amazing how much we accomplish in a year, but really never think about until we reflect and present it in the way that you have done. Love the pics!


  • Kate says:

    These year-in-review posts are making it very clear why your blog is my favorite of all.

    Amazing stuff!

  • I love how you are doing your 2012 review! So much more in depth than the usual “12 posts, 12 months” format. It is great seeing what you accomplished in a year! It feels so short, yet we do so much!

    Thanks for the inspiration! I’m gonna go add to my own review now ;)

    Smiles and all the best,

    The body of work you have from one year is EPIC! I can’t even begin to pick my favorites, there are so many, but I do remember being blown away by the water bottle chandeliers. You are truly great at what you do, Jordan (and team!). Happy New Year!

  • Wow you’ve had a great year! I hope 2013 is even better!
    PS best blog ever! I’ve been a follower for years, love it!

  • Oooh, I’m new to your blog, so this is a great summary for me. I love the pics from your old Paris apartment. Can’t wait to learn about your string art and to read about those grilled cheese sandwiches :)

    How quick time flies. Might rebrowse your site again for some fresh inspiration :)

  • What a great review! Seeing all your favorite projects all at once really makes it clear just why I love your blog! Such fresh, wonderful, cheerful ideas — so much genius in one concentrated happy package! Thanks so much, Jordan! Can’t wait to see how your resolutions play out in 2013 — more dates with friends and family and more gifts and surprises for them ought to make for tons of inspiration for the rest of us!
