DIY projects can be so rewarding and so therapeutic especially when it saves you some coins.

This year i wanted a chanel inspired Christmas tree so i done some DIY and created some of my own tree decorations.

When i started my faze of having a Chanel inspired Christmas tree my husband rolled his eyes, i can imagine in his head he was thinking another idea! what next. The reason for this is because i am very much into arts and craft and anytime theres an opportunity to make or customise something i'm front of the line filling my house with glitter and standing in the garden with a face mask and pj's dancing with spray paint while the neighbours peep at me though their blinds. When i was a teenager i would cut up my jeans or take one arm off my top because i wasn't about to be the same as anyone else my creative blood wouldn't let me. However i didn't became the next Donnatella Versace, and you know what thats ok with me! as i got holder i realised i just enjoyed seeing the finished product and even if it was only my mum who complimented me i felt great. I haven't shared much of my projects but recently i have been receiving messages to make videos and i thought why not i'm always happy to share my ideas with others and to be honest making ideas come to life is a therapeutic journey, i find some me time, play some music and i zone out and only think about this one thing i'm working on and you wouldn't believe the peace i feel because normally i'm dashing around getting school uniforms ready, thinking about what bills need to be paid and the one hundred other things that need to be done before i retire for the night which is usually after midnight. Its important to have some you time, its healthy to have you time! because anxiety, mental health and depression is strongly upon us and there are many reasons for this but i know making time for yourself is important because your body is like a car it can only run while there is enough fuel but when that fuel runs out so do you and exhaustion has many different outcomes. So if your in to arts, crafts, baking, gym, dancing..... make some you time, in fact create a you time because everyone needs YOU TIME.
