Research says women are taught that they aren’t ‘good at numbers.’ I was about to introduce this blog post by saying “I am not really fantastic at math” and decided against it.  I am fine at math… In fact, I got A’s in my advanced statistics classes in my Masters but oddly a D the first time I took statistics in my Undergraduate degree – go figure. Not sure what happened there (bad teacher obvi). Math is one of those things though that people loving saying “I suck at math.” Whether you are great at math, okay at math or don’t have a head for figures – you will like my roundup of Number related DIY projects or as I like to say,  № DIY. No math involved (in most cases, anyway).

Make your own number transfers (the outcomes are endless!).

I really adore this handmade woodland birthday card “1” – I think it could be turned into some magical art for your home. Or mine more specifically.

  • Bahahaha! That last line made me guffaw.

    Also, I am totally guilty of saying I’m bad at math. When I’m not *really*. It might take me longer to do things, but if given enough time I can figure it out.

  • Thanks for including my number magnets alongside so many fantastic projects. I’m loving your blog 🙂
