Partnership with Home Depot {Twitter Party & DIH}

Raise your hand if you are a maniac pinner. Me too. Raise your hand if you want to be a maniac doer. Me too! I’ve done a handful of pins from my pin boards, like this monogramed Christmas wreath, bu that was only because I got a kick in the butt from the Pinterest Challenge last fall. I’ve pinned 4000+ projects, and I’ve done like 5. Yikes.

Want to be a doer and make this mosaic mirror… with me, The Home Depot team, and a step by step tutorial? You do? Perfect! Attend a Do- It- Herself (DIH) Workshop at your local Home Depot on Thursday, February 21 at 6:30p! Update: I’ll be co-hosting the Home Depot in Georgetown on Rivery Blvd (#6538). It would be extra fun to learn how to make a mosaic mirror and meet YOU! On a side note, I made a super cool mosaic table out of  dishes once, with my mama. I used the table all throughout college!

I’m super excited to partner with The Home Depot and promote Do-It-Herself (DIH) workshops! This is going to be the kick in the butt we need to start doing. No more excuses!  I went to my first DIH workshop in Florida last October with Eliesa and Jackie. Oh and I totally suggest using a Do-It-Herself Workshop as a reason to meet up with other bloggers! Last fall we learned about all things kitchen renovation. The Home Depot showed us multiple ways/products to makeover countertops and revamp cabinets. Here I am practicing my tiling skills for a backsplash:

It’s a new year, and it’s time to get another kick in the butt to start doing!  Mark your calendars for February 21st from 6:30- 8p, and attend the free Home Depot Do-It-Herself Workshop at your local Home Depot to learn how to make mosaic mirrors! Here’s what I love about the DIH workshops:

  • They’re free!
  • It’s hands on, and in my opinion, that’s the only way to really learn!
  • You can ask an expert all the questions you want.
  • Did I mention the workshops are free! You can bring anyone you’d like, boys are welcome too!

And another fun thing to mark on your calendar… we are having a twitter party to get the do it herself workshop par-tay started! (Find me here and The Home Depot here.) SAVE THE DATE: Thursday, February 7 at 8p EST. We will be chatting about doing it ourselves! We will use the hashtag #DIHWorkshop. It’s time to get hands-on, so find a local workshop in your area today. Will you be able to make out to a Do-It Herself Workshop? Are you going to attend the twitter party on Feb. 7th? I’d love , love, love for you to join in out twitter chat and come to the College Station Home Depot for mosaic mirror making fun!

Update: Here’s the re-cap post of the DIH Workshop!

The Home Depot partnered with bloggers such as me for their Twitter Party and DIH Workshop program. As part of this program, I received compensation for my time. They did not tell me what to purchase or what to say about any product mentioned in these posts. The Home Depot believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words.

  1. I love the monthly Kid’s Workshop that Home Depot does as well. It’s totally free, and my daughter LOVES building all the cool wooden toys, structures, etc with her daddy!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this. I love anything FREE! We used to take my brother to the kid workshops. It would be so much fun for my mom and I to go to DIH together. So excited!

  3. I actually live in College Station, and went to one of the DIH workshops in the fall, but it was disappointingly not hands-on at all. I’m so excited about you doing one here that is actually hands on!

      Yay College Station! They might make me co-lead in Austin, I’ll keep you updated :) And either way, I’ve been told that all of the DIH workshops will be hands on this time!

  4. Free and DIY are a match made in heaven for me…lol. But i have thought about attending one of the classes in my area.
