10 Best Craft DIYs of 2014

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.  Ken and I have been working away on bringing the basement up to snuff.  I can’t say “back up to snuff” because I don’t think there was ever a snuff before now.  We have managed to create a cozier little TV area, and we have been enjoying it, but there is still a bit more to do before I show it off.

2014 has been quite a crafty year, here on the blog, and although I hope to do more than just crafty stuff in 2015, I wanted to share the 10 best craft diys from this year.
