Hi DIYers!

My name is Madi, and I'm the creator and author of DIY with Madi! Since I was young, I have always loved to write. In 2013, I discovered Blogger. DIY videos on YouTube inspired me to create my first blog on the Blogger platform, and it became my outlet of creativity. My very first post was posted on August 12, 2013, and it was a DIY Bow-Tie-in-the-back Shirt. Surprisingly, that post racked up a lot of views! So I continued to make DIY posts on my blog. The blogpost that sort-of "sprung" the popularity in my blog was my DIY EOS LipBalm. That post, as of 2/19/17 has over 8,000 views! It also got shared on Pinterest, and even got used for some people's school projects! That's when I realized that my blog had potential, and I've created content ever since.

I hope you enjoy exploring my blog, and hopefully create some of the DIYs I have created for you.
