I love working with my hands and creating something that is completely unique. It is so much more meaningful to give a gift that was designed and created with a specific person in mind, and I love that DIY projects have enabled me to create things for friends and family that reflect just how much I care for them. I truly believe that these gifts mean more to the recipient as well, as a homemade gift represents a great deal of time and effort devoted to creating something intended to bring a person joy.
While being able to give to others is certainly something I appreciate about DIY projects, I also love the social aspect. I have a wonderful group of friends who love to work on creative projects together, and it allows us to gather together and share an experience that is meaningful, fun and intimate. We spend a lot of time just talking and laughing, and the fact that we are able to create these great projects in the process is simply a delightful bonus.
