TT&J 2014 Call for Contributors! [Update: Now Closed]

Update (20 Jan 2014): The call for contributors is now closed! I’ll be reviewing the hundreds of applications received over the next few weeks. Thank you!!


I have had such amazing contributors in 2013!

I’m excited to feature new voices in the new year, so I’m opening up a handful of slots for awesome contributors in design, decor, sewing, recipes/food, and maybe more!




I’ve so enjoyed all of the fabulous contributors to TT&J in 2013!

Each of them is amazing! Be sure to go to their blogs and see their creative ideas. Here are a few of my favorites:
