I'm so happy you stopped by for a visit and super excited to tell you exactly what The DIY Star is all about :) Let me first introduce myself and tell you how The DIY Star came to be.
I'm Mindy - a Midwest graphic designer and cookie baker by day. But by night, I'm a sparkle and sprinkle addict ;) Yup! That's right. I'm really not all that sophisticated or anything. I'm just a girl - like you - with dreams to chase and stars to catch. Basically, I'm a "girly girl"! My favorite brands include PBTeen, American Girl, Justice, and Disney (no, I'm not a kid - but a kid at heart ❤)! I love adding a touch of flair and sparkle to everything. So at night, I just explore all the little things I like to explore.
So, why did I start The DIY Star? When I was young, I was shy and scared to show who I really was. Now? I realize that hiding is not living. Living is openly expressing yourself through things you love, be it fashion, crafting, or any other hobby. I realize that I'm clearly not the only girl like myself, so I started this blog to help others find things they love and express themselves with self-confidence and self-esteem.
Girls, this site is for you! Girls, tweens, teens, and 20-somethings - and yes, moms, you'll enjoy this site too. If you love style, DIYs, and gifts or if you have a hobby you would like to pursue, then keep reading.
The DIY Star is a site geared towards all you girls out there to provide inspiration and motivation in a fun and safe environment. You'll get some really neat DIYs, recipes, fashion advice, gift ideas and so much more! But most importantly, this is where you will finally overpower peer pressure. You will design a life YOU love - not what other girls want you to love. You'll be encouraged to take steps towards showing the real you.
YOU are unique. YOU are special. YOU will shine - because YOU are a star!
