Hello, and welcome to the DIY effect.  We are a fun loving family that enjoys all kinds of  DIY (do it yourself) projects, and our two dogs Otis and Lucy are a big part of the DIY effect.  We all have our own talents which include sewing, gardening, cooking and baking, party planning, home improvements, costume DIY'S, creative gift wrapping, making movies, to name a few.  When we get together, the ideas flow and no telling what we come up with.  

Check out our about us page for more about our family.  Also check out our Youtube channel and Facebook page.  When you subscribe with only your email, you'll receive new projects as they come.  Don't worry, you won't be bombarded with emails!

If you've ever thought about doing a fun video with your dog, then check out our Talking Dog DIY.  to see the video of Otis and Lucy having lunch  (photo above).  Along with the video is a step by step tutorial on how we did it.  They sat at a table (on chairs) wearing clothes and pearls. They're sitting in front of a plate of spegetti topped with a healthy sauce and sprinkled with a little kibble.  They were so good to sit there for several minutes while we were setting up the final details. The outcome was better than we could have planned.  See  DIY Skits  for other skits we've done and tips on how to do it.  You'll find our dog Otis modeling his new warm and adorable  Pikachu Coat DIY while playing a part in this country thriller .  Then theirs the 1950's Retro Summer Party skit where Sue decides to have a party, but desperately needs help, so she calls on her friend Beverly.  All is going well except Sue made one huge mistake.  The skit displays several Party DIY's, but to see how the DIY's were done check out Party DIY's.

Subscribe:  We have remodeled and  redecorated quite a few homes over the years and now we will be sharing our before and after photos here. Several kitchen and bath remodels as well as every other room in the house.  Be sure to subscribe for upcoming project photos.
