After almost 12 years on youTube I have accumulated many, many handmade and DIY items. So, what do I do with all those DIYs?? I actually use a lot of them!
Three years ago I shared a video all about the DIYs we use daily. You can watch it HERE. But now that my kids are older some of the things on that list have changed.
To sit down and think of all the handmade items we use daily is actually a little harder than it sounds. We are so used to using most things that we don’t even notice them anymore. I came up with 10 or 11 DIYs we use every day at our house. Click HERE to watch!
All the tutorials and links I mentioned are in the video description box on youTube. Click the video embed or linked on this page to take you to youTube to find the links.
Obviously there are many more DIYs we use regularly, but not every day, so they weren’t included in this video. You can get an idea of those items in my DIYs we use weekly video from a few years ago.

It’s a little funny for me to say out with the old about anything. I tend to embrace old things – old sewing machines, old (style) clothing, old books, old technology (until I’m absolutely forced to update), etc. But in... Continue reading →
