    Be aware WHY you do it. Do you like the doing, or do you want to achieve the goal of having and without problems using it? If the second applies to you, I suggest buying!

    • Why is always important. I always think it could be different with each project. One year, my daughter and I made Christmas ornaments to sell at a craft fair. Our intention was to learn about creating a business. But, my daughter LOVED creating the ornaments. She’s very creative! So, for me, it was an educational reason, and for her, it was for fun.
      It turned out to be a wonderful project! We also made amazing memories together, so it was a win-win 🙂

    honestly I’m not good with diy’s, my older sister though is really good at it. My fiance’s grandfather says that he needs to come over one day and show us how to fix stuff around the house instead of us paying someone to do it for us

    I love DIY. It is so exciting to receive compliments from Friends. Also, I actually enjoy doing DIYs, the projects make me happy and I look forward to the finished results.

    We have always saved scraps of fabric, odd ends of twine, yarn, and silk flowers. My mom loves when we bring her baggies full of this type of stuff. She makes the coolest decorations for all seasons out of them.

    You can save so much money by DIYing! My son will razz me from time to time about saving things. Last Christmas while making cookies I need a powdered sugar shaker. I had several clean empty cinnamon plastic jar with the lid with the holes in it as I used that. It worked perfectly!

    Great take on DIY, I just took apart my pc last week, cleaned it, and installed new components, definitely a nice low cost upgrade.

    Living rural, we’ve definitely needed to DIY. My husband built the house, garage, learned how to put in a septic tank, did in-floor heating connected to an outdoor wood boiler he fixed and modified. I upcycle, recycle, make jam etc. It makes us feel good to do things.
