The Beauty of DIY

This birthday I want to celebrate DIY. Doing it yourself can be magical. And I”m not talking about my typical magical DIY that involves cursing, fingers sewn together, late night ER visits, or the gnashing of teeth created when eating all those DIY hand baked cookies by myself. Sometimes, SOMETIMES it goes just the way you think it should.
Like when you
Spin scraps into yarn, and knit yarn into socks.
sock weight scraps
And hats.
bulky scrappies
Sewing clothes.
Making Future Robots of America.
Maya's Robot Costume
And patterns so other people can DIY.

Hopefully all these can be accomplished this year without any trips to the ER, overdoses on cookies, or falling down in front of others. I’d like to think I’m a little more mature and refined at 33, dammit.

  3. Happy birthday! Your DIY projects sound excellent! Although, if you’re anything like me, every new venture seems to have a blood sacrifice so good luck with that. 😉
