The lovely Erin of House of Earnest and Laura of A Girl Who Makes have invited me to participate in a fun DIY challenge, along with a bunch of blog friends (old and new). And basically, I just couldn’t wait any longer to share it with you. So I’m popping in early to give you the scoop…
It’s called Trade & Made and this is the gist: 13 bloggers, myself included, were sent mystery boxes filled with DIY supplies and materials and were asked to make something awesome. The one and only rule? You can only use the items in your mystery box to complete your project. So what’s inside the mystery box? I took a picture to share what I received. There are wooden beads, jewelry supplies, paints and brushes, several containers, embroidery thread, and a few other items. All the goodies are from Michaels, For the Makers, DecoArt, Clear & Simple Stamps, and Specialty Bottle.
When does the finished DIY go up? All 13 projects (one DIY from each blogger participating) will go live on Wednesday, July 31st and you can check out the Trade & Made site to keep track of all the projects and (hopefully) get inspired to challenge yourself when it comes to your DIYs. So be sure to check back a week from today to see what I came up with for this DIY challenge. Should be fun.
P.S. I wanted to give a special shout out to Gloria for creating the Trade & Made site that links up to everyone involved. You can check out her portfolio right here and visit the Trade & Made site here.
