I really want to start some good ol’ DIYs! Not the kind of crafts that look handmade and have that “je ne sais quoi” that I personally hate about some DIYs.
I like quality things and unfortunately, (normally) quality items are expensive. Spending money when you’re trying to save money doesn’t really jive too well so instead why not make it?
People refer to me as crafty and that may be true, but I also have a skill called “I hate when something takes forever so I always seem to find the quickest but still the most efficient way of doing it” thus it’s kind of a no-brainer that I would be well suited to DIY’s right ?!
Recently while flipping through a fashion magazine that will remain unnamed I came across several designer pieces, a Dolce and Gabanna bag in particular, that I could’ve made the way I wanted for less than 50$.
THIS INFURIATED ME
Something someone was selling for approx. $1300 CDN that I could make for less than 50$, what in the actual eff. And I’m not talking about it looking sort of the same, with some glue gun here and some thread sticking out there. I am talking about a fighting chance of a project that could stand up to its 1200$ rival. You may ask if I made it and the answer is no I didn’t, documenting DIY’s is a little new to me.
I have a list of projects that I want to tackle, things that are trending right now that you could seriously make for a tenth of the price. Silky pillowcases shouldn’t cost you 100$ USD. You could make them in your own color scheme for about 20$ and 40 mins, but maybe nobody has shown you how. Until now… potentially.
Send me your ideas, dreams, and desires. High-end pieces or things too expensive for you to purchase but which you still lust after. The gears in my brain will turn and help you save money, make a quality item, and hopefully discover that you are way more capable than you thought!
