If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ll remember the days when I sold custom signs on Etsy and made a living off it while attending graduate school. I still to this day get so many questions about how I made my signs! Well, in all honesty, being a graduate student on a budget meant I couldn’t afford a stencil cutting machine. So, I had to get crafty! To help celebrate my one-year anniversary of my PhD, I partnered with my friends at Varathane to spill my secret as to how I made custom signs and stencils without a stencil cutter and how you can too!
It’s finally that time of the year! The time when Christmas is only 2 weeks away, but I’m just starting my holiday shopping! That also means it’s time for my no-nonsense, last minute gift giving guide for the DIY’ers in your life! Just like in my last guide, all gifts featured here come in at under $50 (sorry, that doesn’t include tax or shipping). Ready to do some last minute shopping with me? Let’s go!
