DIY Supplies Made Easy

First off, yesterday over on the TIMI Facebook page, I posed a question from a lovely reader. See what she wants to DIY, check out my suggestions, and offer your own!

Not to long ago I outlined my favorite crafting supplies (both tools and household supplies). However, sometimes when you open up the can of worms that is "DIY," the shear number and nuances of supplies can be overwhelming.

That's why I love following the Tumblr of For the Makers, a DIY subscription company. They put together some great cheat sheets they call the 411, which explain the subtleties of materials. Wish I  had thought of that! I won't reinvent the wheel, so here are a few of my favorites.

More after the break!
