Every time a year comes to an end, it is always fun to look back over the year at all the projects and things I have shared. It is not until I do that that I really get a sense of how much we actually did over the year. Our email subscribers said they would love to get a recap of the Top 15 blog posts of 2022 and I was excited to see what they were as well.
Without further adieu, here are the Top 15 Blog Posts of 2022 on My Creative Days.

If your family is anything like ours, we love to play different games around the holidays. We host Christmas Eve at our house and every year, I like to come up with different games for the family to compete and play in.
When the kids were smaller, I would come up with games for the kids and then games for the adults. Now that all of our kids are teenagers, I don’t have to come up with separate games.
They can try and beat the parents and grandparents now. I have posted about some of the games we have done in the past but this time around, I am sharing some Christmas Trivia Games we have put together.
These DIY Jadeite Christmas Ornaments are so easy to make. They give the look of vintage jadeite glassware without the cost or the delicacy of real glass ornaments.

Neutral paint colors are always a good choice because they go with any style and they do sell fast. I also know that neutral can describe any color.
You can have a neutral green and a neutral blue.
You don’t have to paint everything white to get a “neutral” look.
Today, I am going to share some of my favorite blue furniture makeovers that I have done over the years.
I think most of these makeovers are a more neutral blue tone. They aren’t super loud or overpowering.
