Everybody knows how addictive Pinterest can get. Since I was losing a tremendous amount of time sorting the good from the bad do-it-yourself projects on so many Pinterest boards, it dawned on me that I should rather create a giant list with everything worth trying for me and my husband, who takes pride from his pet name, Mr. DIY.

This is how we started this blog which gathers a large array of projects starting from homegrown herbs and spices, which I have to confess are my cup of tea and ending with reinvented furniture projects which I always pass on him because it involves hard work and all ladies know how attractive men look when they’re doing something physically challenging and artistic at the same time.

I am an active environmentalist and I do believe in a better world. I am also exquisitely selective and I would rather pay a fortune for one single high-quality product that has a story of its own than have dozens of cheap-looking, ordinary plastic objects. I think this is very important to note that from the very beginning so that you don’t lose your precious time for nothing.

I am aware of the fact that I look like a crazy cat lady to many but actually I love dogs and I have two destructive, lovable beagles. I was 18 when I got married and my husband was just as incredibly mature as me (19). One year later I gave birth to our daughter Donna who indirectly sped up the maturing process. However, I managed to work on my Psychology PhD dissertation with a small child and a needy husband. I love babies and toddlers and you will find many children-related D.I.Y projects.

When it comes to marital life, I personally believe that boredom is its worst enemy. Therefore, if the passion’s still there, buried somewhere inside, although you’ve been married for a long time and you’re still youngish, dig it up and devour!
