My first blog in the DIY community

I've got to say, that I was pretty stoked when @priyanarc invited me to join this community, so thanks so much @priyanarc, I've been dying to find the time to get in here and have a good look.

Not only because it was an invitation- and who doesn't love an invitation...but because it was an invitation to join a community that I am so on the same page as. A community that loves creating and DIYing as much as I do.

Now I don't consider myself to be a particularly good craftswoman, but I do try and I have such great ideas- especially when come to upcycling stuff, it just that my hands fail me when it comes to making the real thing.

And so the real thing always turns out a bit shonky looking, rather than the smooth polished version that I see in my head.

So a few years ago I lived in a house with a backyard and had a little flatbed trolley that I would walk the streets and collect other peoples hard rubbish off the footpath and take it home to upcycle.

Some of it made it into new goods, some of it stayed in my backyard in the original condition until it then became my hard rubbish on the footpath when I moved out of the house.

So a couple of silver hubcaps became new clocks, one for my elderly father and one for my nephew.

I also made a clock out of old blank dvds and cds for my niece too, but can't find the photo unfortunately cause it was the best out of the 3 of them....

Anyway, I hope that you liked my clocks even if they do look very home made!
