Happy New Year!!!!!! I can’t believe it’s 2014. I remember New Year’s 1994 when I was 18 and thinking that 20 years was SO far away. What happened? Where does the time go? I feel that way with blogging too. It’s been over two and a half years now and just FLYING by. At the end of last year I wrote Top 15 Recycled Crafts and Projects of 2012 and I swear that wasn’t 12 months ago…Geesh! This year I decided to do the Best of DIY Inspired 2013. All nine of these posts have been shared over a thousand times, some several thousand…what?? Here we go!
Best Storage and Organization Post – Craft Room Ideas
This was when I turned an extra room into the official craft room AKA, my sanctuary.
Best Upcycle – Recycled Map Drawer Makeover
As you can see in that last post, my drawers in the craft room were naked. This post took care of that!
Best Trash to Treasure Post – Stuffed Animal Toy Storage
Literally trash to treasure, I turned a plant hanger I found in the garbage into toy storage for my daughter’s room.

I made this bouquet of paper flowers out of coffee filters and book pages.
