Hi, my name is Helen Fox and I am originally from Nottingham, now living in Derby with my  hubby Mr Fox. We have two adorable ginger cats which I adore and spoil rotten, though they don't take too kindly to being decorated. I have always been a creative person, and love nothing more than getting stuck in and making something myself. Whilst it is true you can't always make it yourself for less, its fun to have a go right? It's such a wonderful feeling when you make something and it turns out just you planned it. I have been using online craft tutorials and the internet for crafting ideas and tutorials for years, I couldn't even begin to list all the ones I have used in the past there are that many. I have even tried to enter into my own craft business making plush monsters, however doing this, and a full time job meant I didn't really have time for anything else. So after 9 long years Mr Fox proposed, and having no idea what the theme was going to be for our wedding, the only thing I did know was that I wanted to craft the majority of it myself. And so it started, my hunt for craft tutorials and inspiration spiraled a little out of control. It's then that it dawned on me, why am I not sharing this journey with the world. So as my journey to becoming Mrs Fox has been filled with DIY craft, The DIY Fox is born. 

I want this space to be a place where I can show what I have been up to, share tutorials and comment on tutorials I have tried. I also want to share with the world ideas, items and inspiration that I find all over the internet every day. I hope you enjoy my blog and come back to visit again. If you would like to get in touch do visit my 'contact' page for more information.
