According to Pinterest, I'm so creative and crafty. The pins on my very aspirational board entitled "Make Martha Proud" showcase an array of fabulous fashion and decor projects on an imaginary to do list that I'll get to one of these days. In truth, none of the projects will see the light of day. In fact, I don't even have a clue where I'd purchase half the supplies required and I'm not likely going to spend the time tracking them down. You see, DIY is great in theory, but in reality unless crafting is a deep passion of yours who really has time?
Enter Designher Kit, a soon to be launched monthly subscription service offering the chance to make your DIY desires a reality in the easiest possible way. For $19 / month, subscribers receive 3 carefully curated DIY accessories projects delivered right to their door step in a gold foiled mailer, natch. Projects echo the season's latest trends, think cute pearl hairpins, funky statement necklaces and a tasseled addition to your growing arm party. All the materials and instructions are included so that the only thing you have to do is schedule a little DIY downtime into your calendar to start crafting away and of course, a little time post project to snap photos that show off your new crafting prowess to your Pinterest followers.
Designher Kit officially launches in the new year but in the meantime they're campaigning to get the project off the ground through the crowd funding platform, Indiegogo. Designher Kit is run by a Toronto-based entrepreneur, Dara Frydman, not a giant corporation so to make Designher Kit a success it's really important to connect with customers before the service hits the market. If you see Designher Kit as the solution to your wannabe crafter woes or just love to support local business owners doing fabulous things, pledging your support by November 22nd, 2013 means you can enjoy a discounted trial subscription at just $16, bonus crafting projects and all the tools you'll need to complete your monthly subscription projects and more.
