YOU GUYS! I’ve made it to 1 year of officially blogging! What what! It’s been a roller coaster ride so far but I absolutely LOVE being able do this thing that I’m passionate about and share it with you all 🙂 One year ago, my first month of blogging, I barely got a thousand views. I didn’t know anything about social media and I didn’t know any other bloggers. Fast-forward 1 year and I’ve made SO many amazing bloggy friends and I’m now getting nearly 50,000 views a month! Say what?! That’s all thanks to you, my lovely readers! Thank you SO much for coming on this journey with me as I explore and strive to provide beautiful solutions for your everyday lives.
By the numbers…
Here are some more numbers from where I was 1 year ago to where I am now. They may not be big numbers to a lot of people, but to me it shows how much I’ve grown and how much I will continue to grow!

I’m also SO blown away to have the privilege to have made it onto the 2015-2016 Silhouette Creative Team, started a partnership with Behr Paint, and have been featured on so many great sites like Apartment Therapy, Good Housekeeping, House Beautiful, Elle Decor and more. I was even listed on The Penny Hoarder’s ‘Blogs to Follow’ list up there with greats like Emily Henderson, Miss Mustard Seed, and Young House Love. You guys. My mind is blown. Seriously, WHAT.
To thank you all for being so awesome and supporting me and all my bloggy endeavors, I wanted to do a little giveaway to celebrate! I’m celebrating all that has been, all that is, and all that will be on this little blog of mine! I hope you’ll celebrate along with me 😉
One of my favorite, FAVORITE things that I’ve discovered this year is my Silhouette Cameo. I’ve been creating like mad with it ever since hubby gifted it to me for Christmas. I’ve created some awesome wall art, spruced up some old kitchenware, and used some glitter heat transfer material to kick up the glamor. And I want to give a fabulous creation to YOU so you can have a little bit of Dwell Beautiful in your home 🙂
So, up for grabs is a one-of-a-kind gold foil canvas wall art piece handmade by yours truly:
Isn’t it lovely? The gold foil really shines and pops and makes for a really chic piece of home decor. This would look fabulous in a gallery wall in just about any room in your home – craft room, bedroom, nursery, you name it! I might just have to make another one for me 😉
Just follow the prompts in the Rafflecopter below, and for each one you complete you’ll get an entry (or 3)! Best of luck and I hope you win! 🙂
