DIY and Crafts

As someone who has always been deeply interested in expanding my abilities relating to arts, crafts and DIY projects, I am always seeking out new ideas or tinkering with new tools. As a result of these habits, I have had the benefit of learning a great deal from some very talented and creative people, and it is only fair that I use this blog to share what I have learned with others. While I have had a great deal of success in teaching myself new skills and working through complex projects on my own, there is no way I would be as accomplished as I am today without the assistance of others.

It is my hope that this blog will become a comprehensive resource for new and veteran DIYers alike, as I intend to feature posts detailing craft and DIY projects that are both familiar and unfamiliar to me. I feel that this will help in creating a community in which ideas are freely exchanged and everyone can learn from one another. While there are many DIY projects in which I have a great deal of expertise to share with others, there are countless others that are still novel or somewhat foreign to me. With this in mind, some of my posts will surely include plenty of examples of “what not to do” as I work my way through new concepts and projects.

DIY projects and arts and crafts are an incredibly important part of my life and have been for quite some time. There is a great deal of pride that comes with creating something by hand or from scratch, and there is something about being surrounded by these kinds of projects that makes a house seem much more like a home. I encourage all of you to share your thoughts and insights regarding every post, as I am sure there are many different ways to approach a project or unique variations that can be applied to make something more interesting.

Above all else, I want my readers to remember that while DIY projects are enjoyable as a solitary activity, there is still nothing quite like creating something in the company of others. When you see a post detailing a project you would like to try, please consider calling on family or friends to join you. It is in this way that you can create something intangible, as DIY projects and arts and crafts are a wonderful way to bond over the shared experience you create.
