Trade & Made: A Community DIY Challenge

July 24, 2013

Now that I’m starting to feel more like myself, I’m gettin’ back to my DIY roots. I’m excited to say that I’ve partnered with a bunch of other crazy cool DIYers for a group collaboration called Trade & Made!  What’s Trade & Made? Let me tell you.

A few months ago, Erin of House of Earnest & Laura of A Girl Who Makes schemed up an idea to have a bunch of DIY bloggers create different projects from the same supplies! Each blogger was sent a box of goodies from the sweet sponsors of this project. And we have to make something using the supplies we’ve been given. I decided to snap some shots of a few of the supplies that will be making an appearance in my project. I’ll be using some of the goods above. There’s some stuff that isn’t pictured here, but I gotta keep you on the edge of your seat, you know?!?

I’m pretty excited about the embroidery thread. I’m hooked on the stuff lately.

Any guesses as to what I’ll be making? Hop on over to the Trade & Made site to read all about the other bloggers involved (I love every single lady on there) and read more about what you can expect to see next week! Our projects will be unveiled on July 31st so ready yo’selves!

Shout out to Erin & Laura for coming up with such a cool concept, and to Gloria of Little White Whale for creating such a beautiful site to showcase each blogger involved! And of course, thank you to the sponsors of the project who supplied all the goods in the first place: For The Makers, Michaels, Specialty Bottle , Clear & Simple Stamps, and DecoArt!

In other news: now that William & Kate have had baby boy, we can all breathe again and get back to our normal routines. Did you see her roll outta the hospital after ONE DAY lookin’ all fab?!? Yeah. I saw it, too.
