Top 12 DIY Tutorials

Thanks for sharing!

 It's Friday! That means the weekend! Even though Monday was a holiday, it has really felt like a long week. 

I have a great line-up of various DIY projects that can round out your weekend to-do list or for the upcoming spring weather! 

Top 12 Tutorials from Our Southern Home

I'm no artist and just recently posted my tutorial for easy font transfer. It was my first attempt at the process…believe me ….it is so easy!!!
