Phew! We made it to the end of another December and another year here on the blog. After several weeks of churning out some new holiday content for you (that I really hope you enjoyed!), I am excited to hit pause today for the final Coffee Break of the year! But I’ll be honest, I’ve got lots of wrapping and baking and crafting still left to do, and I bet you do too! So this one is going to be short and sweet, including a roundup of the most popular content of 2021, a quick reader survey, and my Christmas message to you! So grab a coffee and a Christmas cookie and let’s catch up!

Catch up on past Coffee Break posts HERE!

Reader Survey

I am going to be spending quite a bit of time over the next few weeks planning out my 2022 content calendar. But before I do that, I really want to hear from you! If you could spare just a few minutes to fill out the short survey below, I’d love to hear what topics you need help with and/or would like to see me write more about. From home decor and organization projects to Cricut help and personal updates, let me know what you want to read about so I can deliver in 2022!

Merry Christmas!

It’s been a really fun and exciting year here on The Homes I Have Made; and I am so thankful to each and every one of you who visits regularly to read about what’s new with me, my family, and my home. Your support means everything to me, and I can’t wait to share another great year of home content with you. In the meantime, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful, safe, and healthy holiday weekend, and I’ll see you back here next week with my first round of New Year’s organization ideas!

See You Soon!
