#146 - make loveliness yourself [ The DIY starting kit ]

Foam stamp steps
. . . . . . . . . . . . .

Having darling little things made by yourself is one of the loveliest feelings in the world. But so often I don't bother starting as I have no D.I.Y inspiration what-so-ever. After many years I have managed to collect these sites and ideas to  help me along, but I much think you deserve them in the one post. 

So now you have no excuse - get out the craft glue and start making bucket loads of paraphernalia. And we are not talking about the usual DIY painted tissue box. These lovely spaces have wonderful ideas for things you never dreamed possible. You might surprise even yourself.  :)

I can't really say much about this wondrous girl,
other than I wish I was inside her head for a day.

But really, I won't go through all of them - most on my list are on Elsie's 150 top Makers list. So after you...
