Y‘all (whispered quietly in my best, wish-I-was-a-Southern-girl drawl), as un-skilled and reluctant as I am to attempt DIY projects involving power tools, I’ve been asked to do something outside of my comfort zone. Yes, I could have said no. I could panic–and I do a little bit. I could find a twin to do it for me and pretend it was me.
But I’ve learned through blogging that oftentimes saying YES to trying something scary is a great way to grow, learn new skills and even feel a new sense of accomplishment.
So here’s the deal. The Home Depot has asked me to participate in a Do-It-Herself Workshop and … deep breath … they want me to design and make my own monogram wreath. WITH POWER TOOLS. Yes, I’m afraid of disaster. Yes, I told them I am not very skilled. But they didn’t bat an eye or run the other way or ask someone else in my place. They insisted I could do it.
The Home Depot has expanded their Do-It-Herself Workshops to more The Home Depot Stores. They are confident they can help EVEN ME do this so they’ve invited me to co-lead a workshop near me. And to make this project a little bit more scary, I will be making a wreath that I will share with all of you online.
Can I do this?
Will my monogram look anything like an M?
Will I cut my fingers off so I will never be able to blog again?
Stay tuned to find out.
You can register online for a local Do It Herself Workshop at your local Home Depot store! If you are near Seattle, I’ll be co-hosting the one on November 21 at 6:30PM PST in Tacoma Store 4701, 7050 Tacoma Mall Blvd, Tacoma, WA 98409 if you want to come make a monogram of your own and hang out with me that evening! Trust me, if I can do this. YOU CAN TOO!
