Would you like to lend/receive a helping hand? Give a present (perhaps to yourself) that gives back?
I have always wanted to get better at:
. hemming pants and making old clothing new (p. 120, “Altered States”)
. constructing home-made gifts
. managing my finances (p. “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”)
. hosting parties (p. 240)
. doing my laundry
. taking a vacation (p. 312, “There She Goes”)
…until the “Bust DIY Guide to Life” appeared, I hadn’t seen a publication that compiled all of the above topics and menneh-menneh more into one handy-dandy volume. This is the must-have gift item for the college aged (21+beyond) DIYer/mover&shaker trying to make it as a grown up person with grown-up responsibilities & a good sense of play.
