About me

Hanna, 25 years old, crazy about handicrafts. The face behind Tinkerhome.
In my circle of acquaintances also known as "craft queen". I live together with my boyfriend in a beautiful apartment with a small roof terrace. We live in my home village. I'm a total family man and that's probably why I haven't made it out of the village yet. I can't imagine living in a city. I love the view into the countryside and when everything grows over my head, I want to be in the middle of the green within a few minutes. And I don't want to have to use the car for that. I generally like to leave that behind. I am very environmentally conscious and that's why a lot of packaging material is piled up on our storage. Why should I throw it away when I can reuse it for my online store? Of course, it looks nicer when the packages are new, but that doesn't change anything about the goods. But don't worry dirty or broken packaging material ends up in my garbage. So now to the creative area:

Where do I get all my ideas from?
Honestly, I ask myself that sometimes. Suddenly they are there. In my head and want to be implemented immediately. But wait, there was something... my main profession. My main occupation is as a social pedagogue. I am currently working in kindergarten and like to use my creativity there as well. Previously, I worked in shifts, but regular working hours can simply be better reconciled with my secondary business and definitely also with private everyday life.

Order or chaos?
I'm definitely a little mess, especially when it comes to crafting. Within a few minutes, I manage to turn the apartment into a creative mess. It's not uncommon for me to start several projects at the same time, as my head is overflowing with ideas, creating even more chaos. Actually, there is a special study and craft room in our apartment, but in the living area it somehow tinkers better. Anyone who now thinks that the study is tidy for this is wrong. There are craft materials everywhere or materials that I just can't throw away, because you can certainly make something out of them...
In general, I prefer to use natural materials and things that I already have at home for my DIY projects, because it does not always have to be expensive. That's why you will find many upcycling projects with me and also in the online shop there is some upcycling. But what should never be missing with me is the hot glue gun, even if I have burned myself very badly recently, I just love it. But I also like to try out new materials. Under Product Recommendations you will find some materials that I like to work with.

What drives me crazy while crafting?
Latency! I am not only chaotic, but also impatient. The perfect combination... But it would all be so much easier if glue and paint simply dried faster! And why does crochet take so long?! Probably because of my impatience on my other channels, there are only small and fast DIYs. Figuratively, I always see the craft result in front of me and then want to hold it in my hands as soon as possible. Due to my impatience, I will probably never finish a few handicrafts I have started. However, on my blog there are also guides and tips for larger DIY projects. And if something doesn't work right away, I don't give up. I become inventive and tinker until it works. Sometimes this results in several variants. So it also has advantages if not everything always works right away.

I'm glad you discovered my site. I hope that I can inspire you with my DIYs and wish you a lot of fun browsing through my site! If you have any questions, you can always contact me.
