WHO IS JESSICA?
Jessica is also known as Mrs. G. She’s a female DIYer and co-founder of The Female DIY Collective. She loves to share her passion for home interiors, DIY projects, wife life, and her Christian faith. She’s a big believer that women can achieve amazing things when they put their mind to it, creating amazing spaces which represent them perfectly.
WHO IS JASMINE?
Jasmine is a 27 year-old from the UK that loves transforming her blank canvas new build house in Bedfordshire into a home she can be proud of. Through countless DIY and home projects, her mission is to prove that a woman is capable of anything. Her passion is to encourage and mainstream women using power tools!
WHAT IS THE FEMALE COLLECTIVE?
These two women had been following each other on Instagram for quite some time. They both really enjoy DIY and felt there was a need to share how women can be builders and DIYers, too! They really quickly got the ball rolling on the idea of having a safe place to promote women’s projects and what women are doing in their homes as far as DIYing and home decor projects. Within 1-2 hours of throwing this idea up, Jasmine and Jessica created an Instagram because they were both so passionate about creating a platform for women and narrowing the gap on IG. They want to empower and encourage women every day in the USA, the UK and beyond.
WHAT IS THEIR FAVORITE THING ABOUT DIYING?
Jessica and Jasmine love that DIYing is ultimately about saving money! They also love that DIY projects challenge people to try things out by themselves and realizing that the end results don’t have to be perfect by any means. It truly empowers women to accomplish things like projects and home related tasks by themselves and realizing that they really can do it.
Also, if you make a mistake during a DIY, the best thing about it is that it challenges you to figure out how to fix it or find a way around it!
WHAT PROJECTS ARE JESSICA AND JASMINE CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
Next week, they are going to be doing a collaborative project with quite a few DIY accounts over in the UK. They are so excited about it. One of the DIY projects specifically will be a scrap wood challenge! A scrap wood project means simply gathering leftover wood from other projects or wood laying around the home and putting it to use to create something beautiful. The idea is to use the wood and scraps to make something from it. It also promotes recycling and environmental importance.
HOW LONG HAVE THESE LADIES HAD THEIR FEMALE COLLECTIVE PLATFORM GOING?
Their platform is recent – they began their collective IG in April 2020! Thanks to lockdown and COVID quarantine, Jessica and Jasmine had a bit more time on their hands and were able to create this safe place for women to come and share their ideas and DIY projects. They were also able to create more content and think of more DIY project ideas that sparked the Instagram idea.
