In the age when modern technologies fulfill the craziest concepts, we still have time for creativity.

How generations are changing each other
The generations come and go. I remember my grandparents being involved into knitting, wooden crafts, and tailoring. They went through the whole complicated process of a new thing creation considering the following suggestion.
Surely, it was more profitable from the financial point of view to spend more time onto production than to buy its expensive analogue. You see, if the laziness should be considered as the engine for progress, in its turn, the lack of money are about to be estimated as the source of creativity.
Then, situation changed. With the introduction of up-to-date technologies and limitless variety of items, it became much easier to choose the appropriate variant than to create the product from the beginning. Approximately two decades had to come to end when hand-made industry returned to the stage in a renewed guise.
In the epoch when everybody is trying to show how he differs from others, crafts became the simplest way to stand out of the pack. In the meantime, hand-made decorations acquired a new name, particularly, do-it-yourself (DIY). Thus, as long as we believe in statistics, the exact number of contributions into this industry exceeds 25 billion dollars. No doubt, such a huge amount is spent by young people whose age stands under than 35 years old.

One more sign of DIY-production that defines our era is personal customization. Perhaps, people are tired of fashion on duplicate things. According to the research committed by Millenial Marketing specialists, four young people born in 2000s among ten surveyed are dreaming of participation in creating the final product along with companies.
Additionally, we must give another reason that differs DIY from the art created by our grandfathers. Just look at the following figures that shed the light on the problematic issues. Particularly, the canvass conducted by Venveo demonstrated that 60% of DIY-followers are immersed into decoration NOT because of money. Furthermore, in the next research compiled by Google it becomes obvious that people dedicate their time to such DIY-appliances because of the pleasure received! At least, 47% of similar projects are explained in stated way.
No reason to argue, people nowadays do not consider money as the purpose when it takes to creativity. Joy became the leading value.
