If you secretly yearn to enter the world of power tools one baby step at a time, you’re in the right place!
With my detailed step-by-step tutorials I will show you how to turn a cheap 2×4 into a functional piece. No longer are you forced into paying too much for something that “looks ok” or “almost fits”. DYI gets you exactly what you want: custom pieces at a price you can afford. And the satisfaction you get from your own creations is priceless!
A little about me
I grew up in Puerto Rico. After high school I moved to the US to attend college. Marriage and family followed, then graduate school. Learning English was hard, but I’m proud to be bilingual and people tell me I hardly have an accent, so that’s cool 🙂
Teaching and learning are two of my greatest passions. I love my job as a college professor. It brings me joy to watch my students learn, which is why I decided to start this blog. I also have a husband who isn’t super handy, so there’s that…(but I love him!). So, If you think it’s too late to learn to build, think again! I was already a “middle-ager” when I started, so I have no doubt you can do it, too! And if you’re lucky and have a spouse with power tools, then well…you’re half way there!~
When I’m not teaching, DYI-ing, or blogging I can be found-
- Online, searching for beach houses in Puerto Rico and pretending I’m buying!
- On a mat doing Pilates (before work)
- Sitting on the couch watching re-runs of Gilmore Girls (or Blue Bloods) with a bowl of Popcorn and a can of Coke Zero (after work).
- Playing pickle ball with my family (on the weekends). Ever heard of pickle ball?
If you’re dying to know more, here are 6 things you don’t know about me…
- I can’t type (yep…two fingers here)
- I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 and today I am cancer free
- I am quite possibly the only blogger that doesn’t drink coffee
- I love to travel, but hate to fly
- I’m a creature of habit. I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday
- I stink at Geography. If you live outside the two American continents, chances are I can’t point you out on a map.
