I’m on a mission. A DIY mission, to be exact.
Let me start by introducing you to Joules, who writes an adorable blog about her life as a DIY maven, a mom and overall cool person. I met her in real life and she’s just as adorable. Joules has ideas. Lots of brilliant ideas. DIY brilliant ideas. And she inspires me. She even inspired me to paint canvas and use it as a display for my Disney pins, as shown below:
Pretty cool right? I love my Disney pins, especially the Maleficent pins. (I had 2 others, but lost them at Disney (sad face). So displaying them seemed like a great plan.
Anyways, so Joules put together this challenge. This DIY challenge. In which 4 bloggers take on the world of DIY…or a project…maybe three projects. Whatever. One of those. Basically, today, I’ll be announcing my project. And the 3 other LOVELY ladies will be announcing theirs. And then we’ve got 2 weeks to make it happen.
So, as I mentioned on Sunday when I was talking about getting steampunk gear at estate sales, I spent a lot of time going to garage sales and estate sales and resale shops. A lot. Like full work days, 8 hours a day, every Saturday, all summer long, a lot of time. Searching for Scrabble. In total, I probably collected about 15 boxes of Scrabble games, some travel size, some full size, some deluxe size. Some old, some new. All for less than $3/pop. But it was tough work.
Luckily for me, I managed to acquire plenty of Scrabbles, so that I could play a DIY project that I’ve been dreaming about since joining Pinterest in 2011 (Before it was cool). I want to make Christmas ornaments (among other things, but we’ll start with ornaments.) Because I have a LOT of Scrabble pieces now!
So with my very busy next 2 weeks, I’m going to make some crazy Pinteresting shit, while seeing 2 pre-screened movies, attending a gamer fashion show, a toy and game fair, a midnight showing of The Hunger Games, creating Christmas cards to send you, decorating for the holidays and working a full time job.
I’m like Wonder Woman without a cape. Except when I have a cape. Or a hood. One of those.
So if you’d like to go visit those other lovely bloggers (because you know you want to) you can easily check them all out with the links below.
Of course, I can’t just leave you with that! Because if you’re interested…and you should be…you can play on your own! If you’d like to be featured here on Quirky Chrissy, play along and send me your DIY project by November 24 (because it is a VERY busy week, Blog Friends…and I want to have time to show off your sweetness if you send me sweetness). I’m very excited about this and I hope you are too!
YAY, can’t wait to see what everyone makes! =)
Wee frickin heee!! Cant wait!
it’s going to be awesome!
I started mine tonight… There were… Incidents… With glue…
Hahahahaha! I must hear all of the details BEFORE you blog about them. That is all.
I want to take on so many and none at the same time. I love crafts and glue guns… I just well. Well. Should not use one, I have burns to prove it, and so does one of my girlfriends. I have resigned to buying things, not making them.
Hahahahahaha. I ALWAYS burn my hand. Always.
