This is awesome Post #1 in our new DIY Corner series, brought to you by the creative ladies over at The DIY Playbook. Thanks for celebrating DIY Thursday with us!
So you’re moving out of your home or apartment and you have a million things on your mind, not to mention your to-do list is a mile long. I know, I know. I’ve been there. But I have something that you can add to that to-do list that is actually kinda fun. (Yes, I did just put “fun” and “to-do list” in the same sentence.)
The Welcome Home Gift Idea
Why not get some good karma going before that upcoming move of yours, and leave a little something for the new owners/renters of your place? It will take minimal time and money, and it will leave you feeling like a million bucks.
