New year, new resolutions

It has been ages since my last post...!
And here I found myself rewriting a new post, making sure that my New Year resolutions go beyond mere thoughts. At least they are written somewhere in the world wide web! And, who knows, perhaps some soul will even read it?
So we found ourselves in the year 2013, meaning either we will be living an auspicious year... or the complete opposite. However, it is still the beginning of the year, so let’s hope for the best!

As we are all aware, the year of 2012 is known for its economical catastrophe. And it means that we all should endower  however possible, and here we begin to find my very first resolution...grow my savings....! And along with it, goes another resolution which kind of goes against the first one, but deep down it still is an attempt to save money, instead of simply buying new furniture...

We all find some old furniture requiring replacements... So, I decided to Re-Upholster and old Office chair. So, the second resolution: DIY projects. Besides my office chair, I have some plastic armchairs that almost were thrown away. Until I decided to renew them. The way? With some covers.... Still a project which is definitely more expensive than simply throw away the armchairs, but still it seems to be a fun DIY project. Actually, with a simple google search, I found that, weirdly enough (or not) I am not the first one to attempt to learn how to sew some covers by themselves, and actually a mother of two earned some money by simply reinventing (and re-inventing because these types of covers were already available in the market) a cover that fitted all types of chairs. Not that I would be earning money through this, particularly because I have no idea how to sew, so you can all imagine how my first very first attempt will be like....What makes me all enthusiastic about this DIY project is that definitely I am not the first one to try this, and all around the world someone already did it by themselves, and looking by the pictures posted in the Internet, quite nicely. So if they were all able to do it, why can´t I? Soon enough we will all find out how it goes...The first catch with the project: Sewing machine... It is so expensive! And I need it for some medium fabrics, meaning...more expensive.  Maybe some good old soul will decide to offer one to me?

So as we can conclude, my first resolution is finding some obstacles to overcome... Well, the first DIY project  is certainly more easier, so let’s begin Re-Upholstering  the Office chair, which certainly is less expensive, and then well go from there. By the looks of it, I would still have to buy and stapler gun, and with a Quick Amazon browsing, it will cost me around 20£, still less expensive than a 100£ sewing machine….

Soon enough I will write about it!
