Since taking a painting class at a local university when I was a youngster, I have loved all things arts and crafts! When I was in college and really wanted a new bookcase for my room, my dad helped me build my own. When my husband and I bought our first home several years ago, we painted every wall in that house ourselves. After my daughter was born, I taught myself how to sew and how to make my own hairbows. Luckily, my husband is really handy, and we love being resourceful! If only we had more time for more projects!
