One of our favourite parts about blogging is that it challenges to be more creative and try different things. Last summer, as a part of our Simple Daily DIY challenge (now The Craft Social) we put together a series of DIY patio decorating ideas. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor space all through the summer and particularly when company came to visit.
Today we’re over at Crafts By Amanda sharing our first monthly contributor post. If you think we are crafty ladies, you’ll be in awe of all the amazing DIY inspiration Amanda shares several times a week!

Moreover, join the Sustain My Craft Habit community to receive two step-by-step printable guides which include most of these craft ideas.
