DIY OR DIE @ UO ON JULY 12TH

Photobucket

As the flier says, on July 12th I will be joined by the lovely, talented, and endlessly creative minds and bodies of Nikki from Dirty Flaws, Jeralyn of Ill Wear Any Color As Long As Its Black, Pam from Langoliers and Pamalamala, as well as Tiffany and Christina, the Six Six Sick Girls (who will also be DJing), at the Broadway and Houston Urban Outfitters in NYC to conduct six unique DIY Tutorials. The event will begin at 2pm and end at 5pm but there will be refreshments and socializing both before and after where attendants will have the option to ask questions and see demonstrations up close, as well as meet and mingle with one another and bloggers, alike.

There will be 60 RSVP spots available, which secures those on the list a seat at one of the limited table spots as well as a Gift Bag that will have DIY materials as well as magazines and the How To Handbook that Urban has created specifically out of our written tutorials. Because these spots are so limited, each of us involved is going to be holding a contest on our own personal blogs. This is what it entails:
SEND ME A PHOTO OF YOUR MOST SUCCESSFUL OR FAVORITE OR EVEN YOUR MOST INTERESTING DO-IT-YOURSELF EXPERIMENT/OUTCOME ALONG WITH A SENTENCE OR TWO ABOUT WHAT DIY MEANS TO YOU, HOW YOU INCORPORATE IT INTO YOUR LIFE, OR EVEN JUST WHAT YOUD LIKE TO LEARN ABOUT FASHION DIY-ING. IF YOU HAVE A BLOG, LINK ME!
By July 5th, we will have our winners picked - the lucky ten, two from each blog, that will have secure front row seats to the NYC DIY Event of the Summer! Leave your entry as a comment, here, on this post, and be sure to tell your friends about it! All five of our blogs will be hosting this contest and we cannot wait to see who gets to join us on July 12th!

  9. DIY Sock Monkeys


    My favorite DIY project is making sock monkeys for the organization where I volunteer. All of the sock monkeys are sold to benefit artists with special needs around the city. I don't have any pictures of specific monkeys that I have made because they have already been sold so the picture included shows a basket of monkeys made by both artists and volunteers. What I like about DIY projects is that they allow you to incorporate a part of yourself into what you are making. Personally, I would rather walk around wearing a one of a kind altered piece than the product of a mass produced marketing group. Thank you for your time.

    Best,
    Sheila

  10. Oh damn - Im definitely a huge advocate of volunteer work (did somewhere over 1000 hours of it throughout high school) so I love those monkeys!

    Thanks!

  11. Man, it sucks to be in the UK. And also to have no DIY talent whatsoever, but still.

    Nothing like this ever happens here!
