Her love of self-expression inspired Mr. Kate to create her own DIY life and a social media platform to connect with young women everywhere. Her projects involve style, home design, and beauty, including DIY nail art techniques, upcycled projects for your old jeans , and watercolor curtains. You don’t have to be a seamstress, metalsmith, or expert at anything to enjoy these projects, all of which are doable in under two hours and require a minimal number of supplies. Now you, too, can become a DIY diva!

You don't have to be a seamstress, a metalsmith, or an expert at anything to enjoy these projects, all of which are doable in under two hours and require just a few easy-to-find supplies. Now you, too, can become a DIY diva!

Review:

Amazon Book of the Month! (No Source)

“Lifestyle guru Kate Albrecht is pretty much the antithesis of Martha Stewart...[she] probably has more in common with the late Nora Ephron than with any maven of domesticity.” (Los Angeles Times)

“When you flip open a DIY book, you don’t typically see chapters named ‘Hooker with a Head of Gold’... Learn how to make a no-sew tutu... and read about how Kate used to babysit for her stepmom.” (Blogher.com)

“What’s better than a book of DIYs? One that pairs each project with a hilarious story that will have you laughing out loud from behind your glue gun.” (Refinery29)

“Beautifully photographed and just so damn clever... I absolutely recommend you pick up a copy. Not only will you laugh, you’ll get some good crafting knowledge.” (Weheartthis.com)
