You guys know how much I love DIY (heck, I have a whole, painfully un-updated archive to prove it!), but the thing about making is that you just can't force it. Sometimes the ideas don't come; or even worse, sometimes ideas are better off left as ideas. A combination of failed projects and lack of inspiration has left the DIY portion of this blog a little thin lately, which is why it's OK to just take a step back, regroup and admire the work of others until you feel inspiration strike again. So with that in mind, here are five amazing projects to check out from around the web — my favourite has got to be the Urban Outfitters inspired eye print pillow, which is seriously genius... Happy reading! xx
