Shrinky Tassel Keychains

Shrinky Tassel Keychains

Have you ever made shrinky dinks? I never did.. until 2 weeks ago, Monday.  I went to a Geek Girl’s Crafthack-(yes, that’s a real event!) and the featured project was to make shrinky dinks. All the other geek girls, were busily tracing butterfly designs...

Hi. I am ADD for DIY. What does that mean? I crave starting new projects. I see projects that I like, and before I finish them, or sometimes even start them, I’m on to another idea or plan.

What causes these constant changes of direction? Sometimes I psych myself out of something before I even start with thoughts like I could never get it that perfect or I’m not that talented other times, I start the project then realize I underestimated the amount of time or attention to detail it would take to achieve the standards I want. And sometimes, I really do just get bored or distracted and move on to something else.

So, this website is about my journey of improvement. Improving my own skills (and hopefully yours), improving my completion rate by having someone to show my stuff to, improving “things” in order to make them more aesthetically pleasing and creating opportunities for all of us to look back and see how far we’ve come.

I’m all about DIY and re-fashioning. I love aesthetic entertaining and I’m recommitting myself to “going for it!” If I want to make it, have it, try it… I will!

Are you a curious, DIY beginner like me? Are you creative, upbeat, chic yet still frugal? Then this site is for you! Check out my favorite recent projects!
