Picture of Author Spotlight: Muhaiminah Faiz

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Instructables author Muhaiminah Faiz, who in the last seven years has posted nearly 180 projects and has been a prize winner in dozens of the site's contests!

Her projects are mainly craft-related with a handful of cooking projects mixed in, and regularly feature beautifully documented steps and cover images that draw you in with vibrant colors and textures.

Her instructables showcase projects that are highly reproducible and generally accessible to most readers, and do not require an extensive build-space or workshop full of specialized tools.

We had a great face-to-face chat followed up with some written questions and answers, which follow in the coming steps. It was a pleasure for me to get to know her a little better, and now you can too!


Step 1: Why Not Give It a Try?

How did you discover Instructables and what inspired you to post your first project?

I can recall that it was during the summer vacation in 2012. Being an indoor person, instead of making plans for outdoor activities I decided to learn and practice a few crafting skills. I randomly ‘Googled’ for papercraft ideas and somehow ended up finding Instructables.

While browsing through the site I noticed that anyone can post anything they make. I wasn’t really planning on posting anything, I was simply enjoying all the amazing DIY projects and recreating them one after another!

But after a few days, I thought, “Why not give it a try?” and I just did!

And my first few Ibles were pretty embarrassing! Luckily my 4th Ible got featured. It was on the homepage and I was receiving so much positive feedback from the community, which really inspired me to keep on posting and I haven’t stopped since then.
