Hi, I’m Amy, the DIYDabster. I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember.  I have dabbled in lots of different crafts; sewing, cooking, macramé, knitting, basket weaving.  I have also raised 2 children and have a background in engineering. Lately, I have been enjoying creating things for my home and figuring out how to DIY home decor on a budget.  I hope you will find something that inspires you on the site.  When you post your creation, please tag me.  You can find me on Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest and Facebook. I can’t wait to see what you make!
