Looking For A Few Good Bloggers

I know, it's sort of cruel to get you hooked on a tutorial that's spread across six entries and then leave you hanging with nothing on a Friday.

Except I didn't.

where empowered people get inspired
Every Friday, I publish an Ask Krissi's Art Studio column on Modern Rosies, a blog on September 1st, 2011 by bag designer Brooke Van Gory.  Brooke wanted to bring all of her creative friends together in a single place where they could share DIY, art and handmade tips, tutorials, indie business information, product picks, recipes and more. And boy, oh boy, our first month has been great!  So far our "Union Riveters" (the main behind-the-scenes collaborators) have published a recipe for "Chocolate Frogs," sewing tips & tutorials, a how-to on painting and modifying toys, an eye-opening article on animal products in cosmetics, some serious money-saving tips and plenty more awesome information.

We are also looking for articles from other members of the DIY community (that's where you come in).  So ask yourself, what do you know how to do that would interest the majority of people who either make/buy handmade or are handy fix-it types?  If it's:
  • Focused on the DIY/handmade movement
  • Instructive (tutorial/how-to, tips, techniques or product reviews) 
  • Related to house & home, automotive, craft, art, indie business issues or computers
Write it up and send it (with photos attached) to us at modernrosies@gmail.com.

Well?

What are you waiting for??

Oh yeah, and go read today's tutorial from your's truly.  It's how to upcycle a padded mailer with leftover scraps of paper.
