If there is one thing that this lousy recession has done that is positive, it is this bigger than life DIY movement among women like all of us.
We haven’t just taken lemons and made lemonade. We are WOMEN! We have taken lemons and made sweet, sparkling, yummy lemonade and then shared it with each other through our blogs. And isn’t that a wonderful thing?
Fantastic, beautiful, low cost, and sometimes even no cost projects that are just amazing.
If there are two industries that are thriving, it must be paint and…..well…..drop clothes. :) Who’d uh thunk it!
I’m currently making drop cloth chair slipcovers for two chairs. Not only that, the chairs came from a swap that I did with a friend. She now has some new accessories and I have two new chairs! Win win for both of us and loooowww cost to transform my new chairs.
Some of us have drug out sewing machines that we haven’t seen in years, dusted them off, and gotten busy.
Slipcover parties, craft parties, on-line blog parties, new, cost conscious ideas every week in blogland. The inspiration is endless.
Now, many of us are preparing for autumn.
We’re taking reuse, repurpose, and recycle to a whole new level.
Things that we may have had for years are taking on a whole new look.
When we do buy, it is often vintage.
And if we’re really really lucky…….everything we do is kitty approved!
So I guess the purpose of this post is just to say a big THANK YOU to all of you wonderful women out there who inspire me every single day to forge on with my projects.
You ARE…… DIY DIVAS!!
