Doesnt a new year make you itch to try something new, embark on a big project? Maybe its stitching new drapes to freshen your family room. Or sowing seeds for a summer garden. Or even, at long last, the dreaded chore of emptying and organizing your closets every single one of them!
We at Home&Garden got the same new years itch, so were launching some new features we hope you will enjoy in 2014. Heres what to watch for during January:
Design Master Class: Professional designers from across the Triangle show off their work and share their secrets to creating super spaces. Look for design tips twice a month from members of the Triangle-based Alliance of Interior Designers. First up are KathyLynn Gariboldi of Reinvented Spaces and Christine Langlois of Keepsake Interiors.
Backyard Wildlife: Follow veteran journalist and gardener Renee Elder on the fourth Saturday of every month as she works to make her Raleigh yard a welcoming habitat for birds and wildlife. Plus: Learn to identify the animals that are most apt to visit you each month and how to deal with unwanted visitors. Her first column will be Jan. 25.
Favorite Things: We want to hear about the things around your house you couldnt live without Grandmas hand-crank meat grinder, your first set of hand tools. Send us a smartphone photo and 100 words about your treasure. If we print your favorite thing, youll be entered in a quarterly drawing for a VISA gift card. To get yall started, were sharing some of our favorite things over the next several weeks.

Happy new year!
