Life with Fingerprints
If you have kids in your life, then you know what it’s like to clean up a few fingerprints (from little hands covered in chocolate, paint, mud, mystery goop, etc.). But you also know that sometimes messiness is one of the best parts of a home! Kara at Life with Fingerprints knows this well, and it’s inspired her to create and share many family-friendly DIY projects. Her bright ideas will help your home run smoothly, even if you sometimes find a stray fingerprint or two.

Head on over to Mountain Modern Life to see their beautiful photographs, smart home décor projects, and more. I’m adding these projects to my mood board as I type.
DIY Candy is the perfect place to go for genius household hacks, décor DIYs, recipes, and more. Amy has so many smart ideas. Who else could come up with a DIY travel spice kit, a recipe for 2-ingredient everything bagels, and instructions for using a pocket hole jig?! We love these DIY ideas, and we’re sure you will too.
A Piece of Rainbow
Ananda proves again and again that you can make chic, gorgeous DIY crafts with simple (and inexpensive) supplies. We’re constantly in awe of her style! Browse A Piece of Rainbow for lovely projects like an Anthropologie-style DIY floral mug, DIY modular geometric concrete planters, and more!

Check them out!

Simple as That
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest, and we’re thrilled to see this philosophy come to life at Simple as That! Rebecca’s eye-catching DIY glass display cloche was one of our readers’ favorite projects of the year, but there is so much more to love on her blog. Explore DIYs like a free 2019 printable calendar, a summer “un-bucket” list, and more.
“Simple projects, big impact,” is the promise when you visit Design Improvised. And we think they’ve gotten it exactly right! You will be amazed by the way that these projects transform ordinary materials into mini works of art. Thrifty Painted Wood Bowls were one of our reader favorites in 2018, but we are already eyeing Haeley’s dollar store flower wreaths for Valentine’s Day.
