Today, I'm sharing my favorite Pinterest inspired projects of 2013.  It's hard to believe that 2013 is almost over.  It certainly went by fast while I've been working my way through Pinterest one pin at a time!  It was also hard to pick my favorites, but I narrowed it down to twelve - one for each month of 2013.

My favorite home improvement projects of 2013

In 2013, we did a lot of work on our house.  The attic got new insulation and the front yard got new landscaping but my very favorite home improvement projects were the laundry room and bathroom because my husband and I did it ourselves and they both turned out better than I could have imagined!  A year later, I still look at these room and think "Wow! That looks good!"

My favorite craft projects of 2013


Choosing my favorite crafts was a bit more difficult.  There was a lot to choose from!  I really liked this butterfly bell jar because it was so incredibly cheap and easy to do and after only thirty minutes and about five dollars, it looked fantastic!

I really liked this necklace I made because 
it was my very first attempt at making jewelry.

I liked this project because my son and I worked on it together.  I know absolutely nothing about working with wood, so the fact that I made this is amazing to me.

My favorite tips of 2013


These cleaning tips are my favorite because they both work like magic!

My favorite recipes of 2013


This was another difficult category to choose a favorite in.  I've tried a lot of new recipes this year.  These recipes were so good, we made them more than once!
homemade pickles



Red lobster cheddar biscuits


microwave mug brownies for one


chocolate banana bread recipe


taco casserole

Thank you for visiting today, whether this is your first time visiting or you're a regular reader.  I've collected thousands of ideas on Pinterest and I've been working my way through them one pin at a time!  I keep adding more ideas faster than I can do them, so I've got lots more to do in 2014!

  13. I'm going to have to try the pickle recipe. I have tried a couple different ones without a lot of success (end up tasting like spicy cucumbers...not pickles).
