We just published our first Creative Genius post of 2014 (meet Emily Jeffords), which got us thinking: How many Creative Geniuses did we introduce you to last year? It’s 13, to be exact — 13 in 2013. Coincidence? Well, yes, but it’s still a reason to celebrate. The Creative Genius series on Made + Remade features fabulous DIYers and makers who inspire us. Below are the 13 awesome people you met in 2013 — from a sewing rock star to a furniture designer to a butter sculptor (yeah, you saw that right). If this lineup is any indication of what’s ahead, we’re all in for some fun times in 2014! Maybe 14 of them …
