Do- It- Herself (DIH). That’s got a good ring to it, don’t ya think?! I’m all about empowering women (and kids and men) to Do! Which is why I was super psyched to co- lead the DIH Workshop at the Georgetown Home Depot Thursday. Plus the class is free, which is another one of my favorite things! We had 57-ish women, men and kids attend and learn how to make a pinterest inspired mosaic mirror! It. was. awesome. Meet my new friends over at the Georgetown, TX Home Depot!
Side note: Thank you, Marianne, for the group shot! Maritschka, the workshop leader, did an awesome job of explaining exactly how to make the tile framed mosaic mirror. We took notes, ate snacks, and asked lots of questions! Maritschka is a tile pro. Oh, and check out those cute reusable Home Depot goodie bags that were handed out to everyone. Pretty snazzy, huh?!
Next it was time to start doing! And chatting! And meeting other DIY-ers! I had a blast helping everyone make their mirrors. It’s a simple, pretty solution to jazz up any builder grade mirror.
Home Depot offers DIH Workshops the third Thursday of every month. Next month, we can learn how to install dimmer switches in our homes, something I’ve never done before!
Another fun thing, the Georgetown Home Depot gave away awesome prizes, not 1, but 3 microwaves! And while we’re on the awesome subject, check out my apron. I love it. Jan, a local artist who also works at Home Depot, painted my apron exactly like my C.R.A.F.T. logo! Pretty impressive. (Jan’s in the green visor next to me, below.)
I was really excited that Jenn and Allison came out for the DIH Workshop! We made lots of new friends too. That’s Bettina on the end (and above in the pink jacket), she knows all things garden at Home Depot and she speaks German and smells really good!
Just for fun, Maritschka and I were on Good Day Austin last Thursday morning! You can see our 1:58 seconds of fame on KTBC FOX 7! I’m not gonna lie, I was a proud mama, watching C.R.A.F.T. on the big screen (or t.v.), ha!
