A Blog Like All the Others

I like crafts. I find myself getting antsy when weeks lapse without a new project. It was the DIY decor part of wedding planning/making that I loved the most (screw logistics!). Once the big day came and went, I started itching for something to work on. Luckily, my matron of honor is expecting, and her registry has inspired me to DIY a couple of nursery accessories, which I hope to share with you later this year (if they aren’t total disasters). In the meantime, I have a few wedding-related crafts to kick off this new blogging venture.

What venture? Well, like gazillions of other women out there, I spend a good amount of time on Pinterest. Occasionally I find an idea worth exploring… and sometimes I even get around to making something. My process usually involves:

  • Trying to substitute materials I already have, instead of buying new supplies
  • Deciphering the original instructions, often by relying on additional info sources
  • Simplifying the steps
  • Solving problems caused by all of the above

And now I’m going to try blogging about it. Like plenty of other blogs before mine, this might be a passing phase that starts semi-strong and fades quickly or loses focus entirely. I’m going to try to develop it through the lens of what I would want to see if I were the reader searching for a decor, home or party-related craft. If I keep it simple, it might add some value to our overly saturated world of content, but no promises.
