DIY or die


Somewhere, in an alternate reality, I am a person who actually does crafts from start to finish and I can do them phenomenally. However, in this reality, I live vicariously through craft blogs and I pin a million projects I'll probably never do.

Whether you are like me or if you actually do DIY/craft projects, you'll get some use out this round-up of blogs.

Studs & Pearls is the coolest DIY blog on the block. Kirsten takes inspiration from fashion trends and shows you how to make it yourself. Don't have a few hundred bucks to buy a studded leather jacket? She's made it, and she'll show you how.

UPDATE (APRIL 2016): Studs & Pearls is now Wild Amor. Same creator, and still amazing content.

Craftaholics is a collaborative labor of love. It is full of fun craft projects that are fairly do-able for most people to re-create. If you like to make your own home decorations for any or all the holidays, you will love this craft blog.

My alternate universe self can totally do cross-stitching and needlework. In this reality, I can sew on a button, just barely. Feeling Stitchy allows me to live out my needlework dreams through the amazing projects they share and tutorials/patterns they provide.

I love the projects Erin shares on thanks, I made it. They are always cool and don't have that "homemade" look to them (you know what I'm talking about). I love this blog and I never miss a post. She has it all, jewelry, accessories, clothing and home DIYs; and trust me, they are all pretty freakin' amazing.

To round out this round up, I'm throwing in the Craftster blog. Anyone who is into to DIY projects and crafts knows about Craftster, but until recently I didn't know they had a blog!

Do you know of any craft/DIY blogs? Share them with me and feed my obsession!
