Do you DIY?

 I have this amazing friend - who has some AMAZING furniture!
It's wonderful! Fresh. New. Crisp. Light.
But she doesn't like the throw pillows on her couch!
Easy Peasy.
So I say "Oh, just re-cover them! It's so easy! I just did mine!"
She says, "No, I'll just go buy new ones."

I've come to believe that
there are two kinds of people in this world ...
The "Do-It-Yourself-ers"
and the Purchasers

Oh, I used to be a Purchaser.
Probably one of the best around.

But, then - the reality of marriage hit ...
and it wans't just "my money" anymore - it was "ours".
and Tarzan didn't think $100 Duvet sets were worth the money.

So - I struck a creative cord DEEP within,
and now I'm a fearless DIY'er!

I will try to make ANYTHING!
I may not succeed, but I'll always try.
I love the thrill.

Hey ... in our house - it's either do it on the cheap.
or do without.
and I don't like to do without. :)

So what about you? Do you DIY?
Or head to the nearest store??
