weekly giveaway / for the makers:

November 27, 2012


I blogged about For the Makers a while ago, I absolutely love this idea! Each month they send you a box filled with craft supplies for you to make 4 projects. I think it's so great so you don't have to go buy a whole box of whatever craft supplies to make 1 little project .. they send you just the right amount you need. So brilliant.

Today For the Makers is giving away a monthly box to 4 lucky winners! So 4 of you will have a chance to get some of this loveliness in your mailbox. Check out their blog for loads of inspiration and you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook! :)
