Here's a video from the cool new mom site, Capessa, How I Got Over my DIY Fears:

What about you? Are you a Handy Mandy (incorrect usage of Disney show name intended)? I can paint (not fast or super-neatly, but adequately. I think that's about it. I did recently tell a friend that I'd like to try my hand at putting in that snap and click Pergo laminate type flooring, but I think I'm fooling myself and it would never happen (other than the fact that my hubby nixed the idea of the flooring).

I've managed to be pregnant, and thus get out of, every painting project we've had for 5 years. I'm good for reading directions, holding things in place, and holding flashlights. In other words, I make a great assistant. = )

Not a handy bone in my body. My painting skills stink. I can't use a single power tools.

I guess there are a few things I can do:

1. I changed a lightbulb last week.
2. I caught a mouse in the garage this morning. With a mousetrap, of course. It's dead.

Hm...I thought I'd be able to come up with more. Oh well. Like Stephanie, I'm really good at reading directions and standing nearby to assist. :)
