“#MyStory is about inspiring others to try something new.” —Ainslee Costa (@mysuburbanfarm), a woodworker from Melbourne, Australia, who runs an asphalt-paving business by day and uses her downtime to craft handmade spoons and crochet hooks.

“I have no formal training. I don’t go to class after class. I do things because I see them and think, ‘That looks interesting. Why can’t I give it a go?’ Too many people hold back because they think they’re not good enough. But you’ll never know if you don’t jump into the deep end and try.

I work around what time is available to me. There are some months where I go full steam ahead; other times, I just go with the ebb and flow. Even when my kids were babies, I felt like I needed to make things. It made me feel good — like I achieved something that was just for me.

I’ve always found that the best advice I can give is follow what feels right. Don’t follow rules. Go with your heart. If I can just do things that please me and the people that I give them to, then that’s enough for me.”
