I don't have a shared birthday, and only one child (so far). But from an outside perspective I would say that a 2 year old doesn't need a birthday party to feel special. Their little world mostly revolves around them. I am sympathetic to a grumpy 2 year old who is expected to attend a party during nap time, especially as a guest of honor.

gift, schmift... the person who gave it to you wanted to get you something you would like. You should not be emotionally held hostage because it was a gift! Take a picture and save it in a memory album of some sort. Every time you enjoy your new dishes, think fondly of the original person whose original gift financed the purchase of the new plates.

There is no substitute for doing. Best of all is to find friends who are DIYers and offer your free labor in exchange for tuttoring, but short of that, pick a small project, check a couple different books out of the library and watch as many tutorials as you can find on youtube and get started. You WILL mess up, but then you'll find a way to fix it. It will also take more time and more money than it "should" the first time. But you'll get better and it will start to pay off.
