I LOVE a good DIY. I've been finding so many amazing ones lately that I wanted to share my very favorites (click on the photo caption to be taken to the original DIY):

I just have a little apartment patio, but I would love to adorn it in beautifully painted tin cans and maybe some kitchen herbs.

Striped Gathered Skirt by Say YES! To Hoboken
Just got my new sewing machine! I'm ready to make some way cute knee length skirts just like this.

Number one thing I love about DIYs...you can customize them to fit your own personal style and preference. These really inspire me to dedicate a day once of month to DIY projects like these. :)
