It’s empowering, exhilarating and a boost for the self esteem. A sense of accomplishment reigns within you. The ability to take raw materials and make it into something whole and reflective of who you are is awesome. The opportunity to clear your mind and focus on one thing is a freeing. You call the shots and in this instance you are in full control. Your project becomes anything you want it to be. Sometimes you have no set plans and it just evolves. The outcome then becomes a surprise even to you, the creator. It is a sweet journey that will fulfill and sustain you even after it is over.
Everyone has it within themselves to be handy or creative. So instead of readymade retail, why not DIY instead?
