A Walk Down Memory Lane: The Most Loved Projects of 2017 (According To You)

A Walk Down Memory Lane: The Most Loved Projects of 2017 (According To You)

Happy New Year! How was your holiday break?!

We’re only two days into 2018, and I’m already looking back at 2017. Ha. What can I say, I guess I’m feeling a bit nostalgic the morning. Over the break, I spent some time looking back through old posts and started planning new content. So, a walk down memory lane this morning feels pretty appropriate.

In all honesty, I’ve never been huge on those ‘best of’ posts, so I’m approaching this as more of a resource for top posts you may have missed. I went through my analytics, found my most popular posts for 2017, and put them together in one big list for easy browsing. In case you’ve missed ’em, here are 35+ of the most popular posts on Paper & Stitch from 2017…

The most popular category by far in 2017 was DIY (probably no surprise), followed by interiors / home decor, recipes, beauty, and travel. Here’s the full list (in no particular order).
