Thank you for visiting PrettyHandyGirl.com. This blog is for anyone who wishes they were handy and could make their own repairs, upgrades or become a true DIY-er at home.
I have always enjoyed beautifying things, especially my home. My idea of a relaxing day is working in my garage (aka workshop) and building something. The smell of freshly cut wood tends to ease away the tension of the week. Also being able to have the gratification of completing something tangible really makes my day! (Maybe this is because it is so hard to complete a task when you have children un-doing your work behind you.)
The other days of my week are spent entertaining my two little charges (two little energizer boys); housekeeping; and running my other two businesses. A graphic design/web design/illustration business and a web-based baby carrier business I started when my children were babies to sell comfortable baby carriers to caregivers.
I hope this blog will inspire you to try something on your own. My mantra is that if someone can do it, then there is a 95% chance that I can do it too! As a woman, I refuse to bow to the stereotypes that women aren’t handy. From a young age, my father and mother taught me and my two sisters that we could do anything a man could do (and sometimes better!)
Please join me on my DIY journey as I show you some of the accomplishments and pitfalls of doing it yourself!
