Vocabulary: DIY and hobbies...
Decorating their homes is often a pleasure for men... and women! Painting and wallpapering rooms can be made rather easily, with a little experience or meticulously following DIY - do it yourself- tutorials.
Yet, you must be extremely careful if you think you may turn yourself into an electrician, or a plumber... You might have huge problems...
Everyone of you, respecting and following their capacities, can do very varied activities enabling you to express your talents and give free rein to your creativity.

II) If you are very experienced, you may try to start working WOOD, be a joiner, or even try to be an electrician or a plumber/ welder, taking great care of the consequences, since a non-professional's work can have terrible or disastrous consequences.

If changing the decoration of your house is not of much interest to you, or if you don't really feel like rolling up your sleeves, you may engage in another different hobby or activity.
Sewing is one of them. It can be useful on a day to day basis, to sew up buttons, or do a stitch or two, but also to invent, create and make original clothes (or have them made). Everyone may hope to become a "Grand Couturier", promoting luxury and glamour in a country: we should remember that most of the famous "Grands Couturiers" in the world, are males.
