DIY Kit Design

I was recently selected to design a project for one of my favorite craft companies, Darby Smart.  
If you have never heard of Darby Smart check them out here:

They design and sell great DIY kits with everything you need to complete the project. It arrives at your doorstep in this awesome blue box. 

My first experience with Darby Smart was the Baggu tote seen here:
It came with a quality Baggu tote, large USA stencil & fabric markers. The project was so much fun to do & I use they bag daily. 
When I saw that Darby Smart was looking for designers, I decided to apply. A couple weeks later I was told I had been accepted! I was given $50 to shop the supplies in Darby Smart's store and come up with my own project. 
It was such a blast! After a couple ideas, I finally submitted this fabric necklace DIY project using Darby Smart's wooden beads, fabric and modge podge.  

A couple weeks later I received word that this necklace was accepted and will be available for other crafters and DIYers to purchase and assemble. Yay!
The launch date is scheduled for September 5th. I'm very excited to see how Darby Smart will roll out this kit. 
It was such a dream to be able to design a craft kit for a company I love. Please visit Darby Smart and check out the cool kits they offer. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
