National DIY DAY Ambassador| Step Inside My Handbag | Sainab
My blog is an interior and creative lifestyle blog which I started after moving into my new flat. I wanted to show snippets into my little world of getting settled in and decorating my new home. As I have always been a crafty person, doing DIY's just naturally became a part of making it a home for my family and I.
The biggest challenge is probably trying to juggle raising two kids and keeping up to date with the blog. Therefore I have resulted in planning months in advance to make sure everything gets done in time.

Can you tell us your biggest craft fail?
Okay, so this craft fail was after the craft was done. I made a DIY painted T-shirt using glitter fabric paint. It turned out beautifully but then, soon after being worn, I flung it in the washing machine forgetting I should put it on a gentle setting. It came out with a not-so-glittery print on the front. (Sad face)
What is one piece of advice would you give someone wanting to start a blog or creative business:
Write about something you love. That way, content will come naturally and you won't be sitting there thinking for ages about what to post next.
Where do you get your creative inspiration? Everywhere! I know, sounds very cheesy but it could range from what season it is to what the shops are selling. I think inspiration can come from anything. Right now, my interior inspiration comes from the minimalist trend that is going around.
What are you most excited about for National DIY DAY?
I think DIY is something not everyone thinks they can do. Half the things we buy can easily be made at home. I think it will be nice for more people to be aware of it and feel they can join in.
In 5 years, what is your goal for you and your blog?
I am hoping my blog expands and obviously becomes bigger. I think most of all, I would like to still be extremely passionate about it!
Please share with us a fun fact about yourself:
When I'm not crafting, I also like to play with my son's toys. (Sometimes, maybe even more than him). The joys of motherhood!
