How I Renvented Myself with Power Tools!

Many of you have asked how or why I got into DIY. Well, partially because I'm picky. I can't always find exactly what I like for sale in a store. And a little bit because I'm too cheap have something made custom when I can figure out how to do it myself.

The thing I didn't realize at the time is how empowering doing even a small project like changing a door knob can be. At the time, I just needed a new door knob installed on my house and Husband was too busy working on his own project to do mine.

Here's a little interview I did with Yahoo Shine at Blogher explaining how I reinvented myself with power tools to become the Green DIY Diva my family comes to know and tolerate (when I have the  house torn up in mid project.)

I love that she calls me a "girly girl" because I still am. I think there is room in your life for nail polish and playing with jackhammers.

How will you reinvent yourself in the new year?
