My wife sews and has an embroidery machine that seems to run non-stop. I do the general labour of fixing, remodeling, etc.

OMG! I want one of those machines!! In a bad way. I want a bigger, bitchin' sewing machine and a serger too.

I plan on opening up my own Etsy shop this year and sell some of my sewing projects.

Don't have the time that I used to with a little guy to watch in the evenings while my wife is at work, but it's still fun. I married into a family that owns a hardware store, and that can be dangerous for guys (or girls!) who like tools. Good thing the store is a 12 hour drive away!


I love (love) Home Depot. Normal girls love shopping for clothes. I love shopping for hammers and saws and gadgets. Blush

After my kids came along, I made more of their clothes and less of my own. Now I sew mostly pj's for the kids. I would like to sew more, however right now, there isn't as much time as there used to be.

I also make candles once per year, usually as Christmas presents. I'm still working on my creativity with that.

Homemade gifts rock! When I can, I much prefer to make gifts. Even if they turn out crappy, they mean so much more. That's what I tell myself anyway! Is it easy to make your own candles?

A buddy of mine and I did some valve adjustments on it last summer which was surprisingly easy. Well, easy because we had a Clymer manual to reference and he had done it before, though I hadn't.

The last DIY project I did for my home was to install some plumbing to create a full bar in my downstairs (this was in a house I owned some years ago, not my current abode).

Now I know why plumbers get big bucks.

I will never, ever try that again. Undecided

I know what you mean, there are some projects better left to the professionals. I would love to put in my own wood fence, extend the concrete patio and completely re-do my bathroom but I think all those things should probably be done by someone else. I find I have a hard time trusting contractors though.
