Instacrafting/ crafters and DIY

I set up an Instagram account a few  years ago and promptly forgot about it until some months ago and began browsing and got hooked enough to start posting, mainly about gardening.  I noticed some DIY crafting posts and began following them as I had always knit/sewed/made and done etc as many of my generation did because we had to , to look after a family and make ends meet. It was immediately very clear this new generation of crafters enjoyed the creativity and colour in each DIY project they did
My monks bench was vintage white with a pale grey stencil, after looking at the colour and style of Joanne Mooney whose blog and instagram  account A PROUD HOME has won followers and awards I stepped outside my comfort zone and went for Petrol in Colortrend paint and some mad colours in cushions
 of the plain greys I had originally intended!                                         



 Another award winning Blogger is Catherine Colton better known as Dainty Dress Diaries, Catherine had made a Pom Pom cushion in one of her Youtube videos, Joanne began making multi colored Pom poms and when I saw wool on sale in Aldi the idea of a brightly colored Pom Pom
cushion took shape and quickly became this technicoloured triumph
Catherine has a huge number of how to videos on her YouTube channel
Vintageirishkat, the clue is in the name

, all things vintage, craft orientated and some hilarious videos are the hallmark of this Instagrammer ,Katrina. These are some Christmas tea light holders made from sticks, which look fantastic and for free, Just one of many craft ideas !


 Wioletta Kelly of Abbeyfeale Interior Design and another Instagrammer craft and DIYer, these lovely gnomes are made from a Penny’s sweater!
 Next a UK crafter and DIYer with a huge following on her YouTube channel, these rust effect letters were inspired by one of her many how to videos, Kasie Barton.
Aileen from Shabby.ie for all things paint effects, moldings and decor ideas and live how to videos
Joanne Condon author of Furniture Crush, painting not just furniture but PVC doors and windows and would probably give yourself a coat of paint if you stood still long enough!

 These are just a short sample of some of the Bloggers and Instagrammers I look forward to seeing new posts from. Spring is in the air when we all look forward to refurbishing our homes and look for new ideas so give these ladies a look see on Instagram, you won’t regret it ( or maybe you will when you get hooked on DIY) 
I would tag everyone and make it simpler if I could but I haven’t got the hang of those technical thingys

I really like and appreciate your post.Thanks Again. Keep writing.
Dia duit Is mise Gráinne Mc Elwain Táim ó Chluain Dolcáin na hÉireann ach táim ag bogadh go Londain le mo fhear céile agus gortaíodh agus briseadh croí orm nuair a tháinig fadhb mhór chun cinn i mo phósadh seacht mí ó shin, idir mise agus mo fhear céile. chuir sé an cás chun na cúirte le haghaidh colscaradh. Dúirt sé nár theastaigh uaidh fanacht liom arís, agus ní raibh grá agam dom a thuilleadh. Mar sin pacáil sé amach as an teach agus chuir sé orm féin agus mo pháistí dul trí phianta tromchúiseacha. Rinne mé mo chuid deiseanna ar fad chun é a thabhairt ar ais tar éis go leor déirce, ach bhí gach rud míshásta agus dheimhnigh sé go ndearna sé a chinneadh agus níor theastaigh uaim é a fheiceáil arís. Mar sin, tráthnóna amháin, nuair a tháinig mé ar ais ón obair, bhuail mé le seanchara liom a chuir ceist orm faoi mo fhear céile. Mar sin mhínigh mé gach rud dó, agus mar sin dúirt sé liom gurb é an t-aon bhealach ar féidir liom mo fhear céile a fháil ar ais ná cuairt a thabhairt ar theilgean litrithe darb ainm DrIgbinovia, toisc gur oibrigh sé dó freisin. Mar sin níor chreid mé i litriú riamh, ach ní raibh aon rogha agam ach a chomhairle a leanúint. Ansin thug sé dom an seoladh ríomhphoist doctorigbinovia93@gmail.com den chaip litrithe a thug sé cuairt air. Mar sin an mhaidin dár gcionn chuir mé ríomhphost chuig an seoladh a thug sé dom, agus dhearbhaigh na riachtanais litrithe dom go bhfaighidh mé mo fhear céile ar ais an dá lá. Ráiteas iontach !! Níor smaoinigh mé riamh agus labhair sé liom agus dúirt sé liom gach rud is gá dom a dhéanamh. Ansin an mhaidin dár gcionn, mar sin iontas, d'iarr mo fhear céile nár ghlaoigh orm le seacht mí anuas orm a rá go raibh sé ag teacht ar ais. Cé chomh hiontach! Mar sin bhí sé mar sin tháinig sé ar ais an lá céanna, le go leor grá agus áthais, agus ghabh sé leithscéal as a dhearmad agus as an bpian a chuir sé orm agus ag ár bpáistí. Ón lá sin i leith, bhí ár gcaidreamh níos láidre anois ná mar a bhí sé cheana, le cabhair DrIgbinovia Mar sin rachaidh mé i gcomhairle leat má bhíonn aon fhadhb agat teagmháil a dhéanamh leis. glaoigh air nó cuir leis é ar Whats-app: +2348144480786 a bhuíochas mór do Drigbinovia ..!
