Every once and a while I get the arts-and-crafts bug! You know….the overwhelming feeling to DIY. There is such joy that comes from actually creating something and having your own personal "stamp" on it, right?
This is precisely the reason why I love the company 1154 Lill Studio!
1154 Lill Studio was founded in 1999 by Jen Velarde as a way for women to interact creatively, express their individuality and create lasting memories of shared experiences – all around the collaborative design of handbags and accessories. In a nutshell….you can design your one-of-a-kind bag from a choice of 30 different styles and over 175 fabrics!
So, in honor of amazing accessory-created memories, our friends at 1154 Lill Studio are generously extending a 20% discount on their entire website until November 5th (enter REALSIMPLE at checkout) AND…they are giving away an At Home Design a Bag Kit–Erinn (valued at $110) for one lucky reader.
To enter the giveaway—Please leave a comment telling me what your favorite DIY project has been? And then I will randomly pick a winner Monday morning (Oct.25th). Remember to leave your email address so I can get in contact with you.
Mine would have to be the great flop flops I made from an old yoga mat!
UPDATE: The winner of the giveaway is Angie! And here is her post…
"i have to admit that my diy projects are usually really simple. :-/ but i still have a favorite one, though! and that would have to be making cards for people. yes, simple right? but i find it so much more personable to make your own cards than buying them at the store. it adds a personal touch with your time and effort into it. plus, it's one-of-a-kind!"
