self-sustainability for everyone #3

make it homemade / /

This should be a no-brainer. To be self-sustained is all about doing it yourself! There are so many things that can be made at home. Just take a look at Etsy to find out!

I understand that it can be intimidating to do something yourself for the first time; especially when there are ready-made things out there that can be had right away for a price. However, there is nothing so satisfying as making something yourself and seeing/using the finished project made by your own hands.

Taking on and learning a new skill is good for your self esteem, for your brain function, and for your home. Maybe this week you could start researching something new.

Knitting
Spinning
Sewing
Quilting
Embroidery
Soap Making
Wood Carving
Beer Brewing
Bread Making
Pottery
Herbology
Cheese Making
Basket Weaving
Etc.

There are so many things that can be learned which are forgotten arts that everyone used to be able to do.  There are free tutorials, recipes, and and YouTube videos for these things all over the internet. What have you always wanted to do but haven’t had the courage to try?

You can do it!
