How Busy Moms Get Their Creative On {Project DIY Review & Giveaway}

I got a box in exchange for my honest thoughts. The life of a blogger. Get it.

So, I’m going to come right out and say this: If you are a crafty soul like me, and your children have sucked the creativity out of your life, you need this. MJ Project DIY has created a box subscription service that sends you three projects each month based on designs created at their New York trimmings store: M&J Trimming.


The projects are easy enough, but at the same time, they are adorbs. I seriously wear the necklace I made every single day. A friend loved my bracelet so much, she asked me to make her one. The keychain is a permanent fixture on my purse.




The directions for each project can be found on their free iphone app or website. And, each project comes in a cute little package with everything you need. If you don’t have jewelry tools, you can also get those with your kit.




And, of course, you get one too. Well, one of you. Duke it out Rafflecopter style:
