Join Me for a Great September Project!
I have some news! You may remember my post last month about collaborating with The Crafter's Box.  Welllll, I'm happy to announce that I will be their Featured Maker for September!  And now I can spill the beans about my project!

In September, we will be needle felting a trendy-but-classic monstera leaf design on a beautiful linen pillow case.  This is the perfect piece to update or add to your home decor!

If you want to participate, you'll get a box filled with everything you'll need to try your hand at needle felting and make this gorgeous pillow case, plus access to a video tutorial that walks you through the whole project.  We'll even have a live Q & A at the end of September! I've carefully sourced all the supplies, supporting small businesses and makers whenever possible. (Seriously, the only thing not provided by a small business is my favorite gel pen that is also included.)

If you want to join me and get this project, the window for subscribing is now through Aug 20.  You can join for just one month or sign on to receive three months of projects (and save a bit, too).  Keep in mind there is a limited number of boxes, so don't wait!

Take a look what we'll be making, and let me know if you have any questions.  If you're ready to join now, just click here. 


The Coolest Collaboration
A few months ago, I was approached by an amazing company with a great opportunity.  Though they are relatively new--not even a year old yet--but I had already been a fan for a while and was definitely impressed with the the folks involved and the service they offered. So when that initial email came, I didn't hesitate to say yes!

Let me introduce you to The Crafter's Box!  They curate a monthly box, which contains all the supplies and specialty tools that you need to create a beautiful, high-quality, "grown-up" project.  Each month also comes with a professionally produced video tutorial, PLUS you'll have the chance to participate in a live maker chat to ask any questions you may have about the project.

So, you may be wondering, "Dani, did you help curate a project?"
Why, yes I did.
"Is it needle felting?" 
It sure is!
"What is your project?!?"
Welllll....I can't reveal all the secrets just yet, but I do have some fun things to share!  Last week I traveled to San Diego to participate in The Crafter's Box second ever Maker Retreat.  I got to meet all the other makers and artists for the next "batch" of boxes.  We hung out poolside, were pampered with amazing food and experiences, enjoyed each other's company, but we were also there to work.  We each filmed our tutorials, styled vignettes for photo shoots of ourselves and our projects. Below are a few snapshots I took during my two days in California. It was magical.

I got to meet ladies I've admired for a while, and I made so many new friends! I'm so impressed with the support The Crafter's Box offers its collaborating makers and artists. But also I'm in love with the whole idea of a monthly box that offers beautiful crafts with expert makers.  If you are a maker, or if you love gorgeous, handmade projects, I encourage you to check it out

And one last's a peek at what's in store for you if you receive my project...

What could it be??  Patience, friends. ;)
