The DIY community online is filled with a whole lot of creativity, endless inspiration, more swoonworthy stills than you can Pin and sparkles at every turn/click. If we could assemble an IRL dream brunch (complete with a DIY mimosa bar, natch) of makers from across the web and around the world, a very special seat at our no doubt well-decorated table would be reserved for Lauren Riihimaki aka LaurDIY aka the Professional Glitter Lover. This DSLR-toting DIY Queen delights her 1.3 MILLION YouTube subscribers (!) each week with a look into her life and a project (or five) to get them inspired.
