Happy new year! 2014, it’s been a wild ride. I’ve celebrated one year of blogging, had two amazing internships, became more in touch with my own sense of style, flew to the West Coast for an arts-focused first semester of Junior year, and completed a final project on interior design. I also enjoyed the love and support of an amazing readership and blog community. So thank you 2014, and thank you all for staying tuned to Thou Swell as the year progressed. I am super excited for what’s to come in 2015 – I’ve already got a HUGE project that I’m super excited to share, but first let’s wrap up 2014 with some highlights:
June: Shared a DIY project for Animal Printed pillows, guest-posted on Buckets & Spades, shot some photographs at my grandparent’s beach house, and Thou Swell was added to favorites on A HOUSE IN THE HILLS.
July: Made a terrarium out of an Ikea lantern, shared photos from Aunt and Uncle’s home in Boston, and started a Summer Essentials style series with Grace, mentioned on Paper & Stitch in 7 Awesome Blogs You Should Be Following.
October: Thou Swell turned one and I got my blogging friends together to host an iPad Mini & NextIssue giveaway, new contributor Isabella Rael shared a delicious baked pumpkin donut recipe, and was mentioned in Notes from the Weekend on This Is Glamorous.
