The do it yourself movement is stronger (and chicer) than ever these days, and guest editor Erica Domesek is leading the way with her site, P.S.- I Made This.

This week, Erica is letting us in on her DIY must haves! So what should every crafter put in her kit? “A Swiss Army knife,” Erica told us. “I'm also a big manicure on the go kind of girl. Having a nail file, tweezers, and snips for all sorts of stray strings is a must have.” Other necessities for the artisanal enthusiast include a glue gun, duct tape, fabric glue, sewing basics, pliers and wirecutters
