Wife, Mummy, Nurse: I am a DIY and a DIFM Gal

I am a DIY and a DIFM Gal

When I received the e-mail from BlogHer with February's 2015 NaBloPoMo theme and prompts, I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I love, love, love making things, especially anything to do with food and "domestic crafts"-knitting and sewing. Follow me on Instagram to find out what I'm making.

Are you a DIY or DIFM (do-it-for-me) person? Honestly, I'm a bit of both.

  1. I'm a DIY gal, if it's something that does not require a lot of space (since we are limited in space). I enjoy knitting and sewing, but you will find me knitting a lot more than sewing. There's something daunting about dragging out my sewing machine, plugging it in, and having it take up space on my dining room table. I have done it, but then housework and caring for my children get pushed to the back burner.
  2. I'm a DIFM girl for anything mechanical. There are often times that I wish I knew how to fix vehicles, because it would be nice to avoid a $400+ bill which we'll have to pay in the next day or so.
What are you? Do you want to dig in and get your hands dirty?
Or are you willing to have someone else do it for you?

  1. I have the same problem with sewing. I do actually have a sewing cabinet, but the surface sort of doubles as storage when I'm not using it. Plus, there's getting the ironing board out to get rid of wrinkles in fabric, which eliminates all wiggle room in my little office/craft area.

    Otherwise, we're pretty similar. I really enjoy learning about mechanical stuff, but actually doing it? Not so much.
