My first DIY: making my own toys for lack of funds
As a child, we were very poor. My dad followed construction jobs so we were always moving. Our little car could only hold so much so toys did not make the trip. I learned to make doll furniture from small match boxes and colored pieces of paper. I made sailing ships with walnut shell halves. My mom would fix me a small place in the apartment where I could keep my creations. She would try to buy second hand McCalls magazines so I would have the paper dolls and I would make clothes out of the colored pages of the magazine. That creative ability stayed with me everywhere we went and is still something I do at the age of 72. I have taught craft classes and art classes in shops and in adult education. Some of my best memories are about the things I created as a child.
