Here is a quick recap of my most viewed craft posts in 2012.   Thanks to all of my new followers and those that hung on during my WordPress migration. I am not a fan of odd year numbers so I am trying to pack the calendar with projects in  2013!

What is that expression?  Necessity is the mother of all inventions?  Well, my {first} husband was on a ladder cleaning the dead bees out of our 2 story windows this fall.  While he was up there he attempted to clean the windows.  Not a great idea or a visual.   Here is the before with his attempts to reach the top corner.  

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to watch my {first} husband clean those windows, I came up with this idea.  I grabbed the broom, a microfiber towel and a large rubber band. I’m not sure which is more impressive… the idea or the fact that I could find a rubber band!  And, of course, I had to take a quick pic!

Here is the after photo.  Not bad for a quick idea!
