I love to make things and I love to blog about them. I have been flattered a time or two when a reader has asked if I would make one of my projects for sale. As much as that sounds appealing, in addition to blogging I work full time outside the home. Knowing my situation and my limitations, I started this blog with a mission.
My mission is to share things I make and how I make them, so my readers can make their own DIY versions.
It goes without saying one of my most rewarding experiences from blogging is when I feel I have accomplished my mission. The biggest affirmation is when my lovely readers come back to share projects they made from inspiration found on Teal & Lime. I welcome readers sharing links to their Teal & Lime inspired projects in the comments section and on Facebook. Today I would like to share some reader projects. I love seeing how they took my idea and made it their own.
Kristin from The End of The Alphabet shared her daughters new crib skirt made with my box pleat crib skirt tutorial. She found the tutorial via Pinterest (no doubt because one of my other awesome readers pinned the project). I love the fabric she chose!
Alie from Double Jones made my DIY Helvetica Christmas Stockings and shared them on her blog. She took such great pictures of the detail. I love how she chose a different color to represent each family member and plans to add more colors as the family grows.
And speaking of DIY stockings, I had another reader, Mary, email me to share her stocking project…she made 24 stockings with my tutorial! Amazing! Here is what she said:
Thank you for your tutorial. Each year I make an advent calendar for my in-laws. Each family member gets one day and puts a “prize” in the calendar. 2012 will be the year of the stocking. I already made the 24 stockings. I had to add one of the dogs to get to 24 but now the in-laws will get a treat every day and each family member will get a stocking to take home at the Christmas party. It’s win-win! Thanks again.
Sometimes readers are inspired by just a small hint or tip I provide in a tutorial. Jennifer from Septembers to Remember made a beautiful piece of art on canvas. She let me know she used a tip from my word art tutorial to paint a base coat of color on the canvas to make touchups later easier.
No matter how big or small the inspiration a reader derives from my blog, I love hearing about it. Please continue to come back and share how Teal & Lime has inspired you. Feel free to add a link to a Teal & Lime inspired project in the comments on this post. I will continue to share reader projects periodically.
