One of my earliest DIY projects was building a dollhouse from a kit. I spent hours and hours painting, assembling, and crafting tiny, little accessories. I still have that dollhouse; in true DIY style, it’s still a work in progress.
My love of gardening also started when I was young. I loved helping my mom put new plants in the ground each spring, and watching how they grew.
