i know it’s awful, but i’m seriously ready for fall. new york has been stuck in this perma-august weather since may and i’ve finally hit the point where i’m mentally buying leather boots and coats because i can’t take this humidity anymore. so as much as i love summer (it’s normally my favorite time of year), i’m preparing to say goodbye to it as i get excited for cooler temperatures, jeans, and fall jackets. as part of that process i splurged a little bit on craft supplies that inspired me to create some new diy projects for the site. so i thought i’d share my favorites this morning in case, like me, you’re ready to ditch the 98 degree heat wave and kick back in cool fall weather.
