do it {yourself} again: my favorite DIY posts of yore

There are some shudder-worthy posts in the early pages of this here blog; but there are also a few hidden gems buried deep in the archives.

I have a big list of DIY inspirations I’m hoping to find time for when things slow down at the shop this summer. In the meantime, I thought I’d knock the dust off of my top five DIY posts from way back when, and give them a second shot at glory!

Here they are, in no particular order:

    This isn’t really relating to your blog, which is awesome by the way, but I have been searching the internet all night to try to figure out how to make multiple posts on different pages. Your site has exactly what I am looking to do! Please help!

      Hi Savannah! I think you’re referring to the navigation bar underneath the header? With the links to “Topics” you can click on and find a page of posts related to that topic?

      If so, you can do that through WordPress with a Custom Menu. You can read more about custom menus here:

      I hope this helps!
