DIY is a way of life. A lot of people have seem to forgotten that instead of purchasing something ready-made, or having somebody fix something for you, you can do it yourself. Take me for example. Recently I purchased one of those cheap remote controlled drones for sale. Not for me of course, it's for my son. In an unfortunate accident one of the plastics of the bracket where camera is supposed to be ended up being damaged. Despite never fixing something like that, I used my hot glue gun and not only did I fix it, but I made it better because the camera on the drone now shakes less during flight.
My kids are pretty clumsy and if I asked others to have things fixed for me in a very short amount of time nobody would answer my calls or texts. I'm not saying that you go out and fix things like the water heater or electric wiring. Those things are something that you SHOULD leave to the professionals. Smaller issues, like damaged toys, cabinet door hinges, office chairs, desk legs, etc. can all be fixed by inexperienced DIY repairman. I'm sure that I'll be fixing broken wheels off my other sons electric skateboard or buffing up scoffs from my daughters hoverboard. We were lucky to find HoverboardPrince and their best off road hoverboards buying guide. We're a pretty high tech family, that, combined with my kids clumsiness, means that there are a lot of repairs.
What this website is going to be about however is creating things from the group up. I'll still be sharing some of my DIY repairs, bragging about them to be more precise, but creating things from nothing is what my love is. DIY arts and crafts are my main agenda and love. Creating jewelery, jewelery boxes, decorative pieces, floral bouquets and more, that's my jazz. And who am I? Well my name is Violet, but my friends call me Lolly. You can find a bit more info on me by visiting the "About" page. LollyChops will sort of be a diary of mine where I'll post DIY project ideas, DIY tutorials, do reviews of DIY works of other etc. What you'll be able to see on this website can be broken down to:
