Tatertots & Jello: 26 of my Favorite DIY Projects from 2013!!

First of all, I would like to say thank you so much to everyone who has been reading my blog anytime in the past 6 years. When I started my blog I didn’t think I had anything to say. I was at a low point in my life and I never would have imagined how much joy and fulfillment could have come out of this online world. I have gained so much inspiration, met so many wonderful, amazing friends and it really has been such a blessing in my life!

2013 was a wonderful year. I’ve loved watching our kids grow into amazing individuals. Working on the #1905Cottage was a dream come true!! Here are a few of my favorite posts from the year.

  5. Jen — I adore the kitchen nook makeover. I have a lot of old beadboard in my house (which I love) but never considered painting it a contrasting color. It really makes your cake plates pop. Thanks for a great idea!

    I’m currently organizing my office / laundry room. It’s a lot of fun.
