The Year in Review


efore I dive into new projects for 2014, I wanted to offer up a reflection on the year that was.  It was a busy 2013 here at celebrate CREATIVITY and if you browse throughout this post, you’ll certainly see why.

If you missed any of the projects, recipes, photo tips, home decor projects and other good stuff that I shared last year, here’s a chance to catch up on everything.

All links to every single post and project from 2013 is highlighted with text title-links below.

To revisit any post, just click through this happy new year recap of 2013.
