Happy New Year! While we are celebrating the beginning of 2015, it’s also a time to remember the past 365 days of creativity, imagination and inspiration! There were quite a few great posts this past year. Some that went viral thanks to social media and a couple of posts from the previous years that still remain popular today. Here’s a look back at the top 10 Hoosier Homemade posts for 2014.
