A bit of DIY

donna hay - - THINGS I LOVE -

Even from when I was lit­tle, my Dad al­ways taught me the value of be­ing an in­de­pen­dent, ca­pa­ble woman (he wouldn’t let me learn to drive a car un­til I could com­pe­tently change a tyre and top up the oil!). And, al­though I love to try my hand at new things (my years of styling in the stu­dio have taught me the ben­e­fits of that), I think I may be a bit of a dis­ap­point­ment to strong fe­males ev­ery­where when it comes to my home im­prove­ment skills. For me, some­thing as sim­ple as re­plac­ing a light bulb means I am likely to ruin the en­tire light fix­ture, usu­ally re­sult­ing in a pan­icked call to a pro­fes­sional who will come to my res­cue. Add the fact that tradie-style over­alls are very un­flat­ter­ing on me, and I think it’s time to ad­mit that home DIY is not my call­ing! I’m cur­rently in the midst of ren­o­va­tions and I’ve wisely de­cided to put my tools down and leave it to the ex­perts. I’ll stick to the stu­dio, for now – cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful back­grounds and dye­ing fab­rics to use in shoots is so much more my thing!
