10 Books for the DIYer

Hello all! It’s Veronica again! It may be my history in publishing but I can’t help but buy books about the things I love. As a result we’ve got cookbooks, craft books and code books piled to the rafters at casa Make Scout. I’ve combed through them all, think of it as my little reference library, and found my favorites.

Since I get so much pleasure out of my favorite books, I thought I’d share the list with all of you! These are my top 10 books for DIY in my collection. The crafts are fun and unique and there’s a little something for everyone in here, whether you like to cook, renovate or accessorize. I’ve also tacked on a bonus book, Happy Handmade Home isn’t for sale yet so it’d be a bit preemptive to add it to my favorites, but I must say I’m continually impressed by the amazing team at A Beautiful Mess and they’ve yet to disappoint me so I’m excited to see the finished book!
