What is a Make Do life? For me it is getting in touch with your creative self, exploring it, and inserting that creativeness into everyday things, everyday. It is not about not being able to afford things, although that can be a incentive. It is putting your special stamp of uniqueness on life. For example:
Its a new year, so I need a new day planner. Other years I've gone down to the local store and bought one. This year I spent one afternoon making one. It's not the perfect book. A book maker would sigh. But it works for me, says lots about me, and I have fun with it .

Tell me what you think.

I remember mom wearing that apron! The red and white plaid one is the same fabric Grandma used to make pant and shirt outfits for us in the first house on the island! She must have gotten a good deal on a half bolt!
