I`m sure you heard about it. It`s like a trend at the Moment. Also called DIY.
For me it`s not going on the Internet to print ready instuctions, buy the stuff, and just follow them step by step.
For me it`s to make someting new out of the things you have, to reuse, having new ideas and also making the world around you Special, different and prettier! Have an open mind and create! Be mindfull! Trust me, you already have a lot of stuff around you, you can work with.
