    Innocent. I know what I am willing to do and what is not in my wheel house. As long as I stay in my lane I don't get overwhelmed.

    No! I'm not a DIY kind of person so I just don't even attempt it.

    I have absolute Zero diy experience! I'm probably the least creative person I know or met. The only thing I think I'm going to do is making a personalized guest board. I don't know how it will look, if it looks bad I'm throwing it away and just ordering something

    We DIYed most of my sisters wedding and my FSIL is extremely crafty so I’m not too worried about it, I know we are going to have quite a few fails but we’ll have fun why we are doing it!!

    Nope. I have a team of very creative ladies (my sister and mom) who make sure all my DIY stuff is perfect.
