I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s.  We spent it with all my family at home, including my parents and our dear friends, the R. family, visiting.  They’ve traveled to 2 different states and 3 of our homes to spend New Year’s Eve with us.  It’s such a fun tradition and we look forward to getting together with them every year (could it be our tradition of watching a Planet of the Apes movie marathon that keeps them coming back?).

On Monday I shared the 10 best organizing ideas of 2014.  I thought it would be fun to walk through the top 10 most popular DIY posts of 2014 today.

Save me a spot on the sofa.
