Make It Monday #195: 2014 A la Carte

By December 29, 2014Make It Monday

As 2014 comes to a close, we thought it would be fun to provide a summary of all 50 videos we posted in 2014, allowing you to perhaps take advantage of a technique or challenge you might have missed.  There were so many incredible tutorials and lessons that you wouldn't want to miss out on just because you might have had a busy week in the past twelve months.  Our challenge to you is to pick one of the weekly videos that you might have missed or did not get a chance to play along with and create a project using that technique or tutorial.  Here is the official summary list of all the amazing videos the team created for you this past year:
