Hello lovely readers! I’m doing something a little different today; I’m reviewing a fellow DIY blogger. Why you ask? Because I love finding other up-and-coming bloggers and sharing with the world their unique vision of DIY crafting. How awesome is it to find someone whose interested in the same hobby as you? It’s hella awesome (yes im dorky). When you find such bloggers, I think that it’s important to show support and encouragement. So, with out further ado, let me introduce you to
SHELBYTRIES is a DIY craft blog that’s great for college students and other individuals with busy lives. Her projects include fun materials, like chalkboard paint and gold spray paint. This is a must-check-out-blog!!!

WHAT I LIKE
#ONE – CHALKBOARD
I absolutely love her projects involving chalkboard paint. Such a fun idea!! I think chalkboard is great because it’s old-school and elegant, a perfect combo. I may use her as inspiration for my next blog post. There are two DIY chalkboard paint projects of hers that I love, a storage container and tea jars.
Storage Container: How cool is this?! Using chalkboard paint on a storage container is a great way to spruce up your bedroom, closet, or dorm room, giving it that homey feel. I also love how she wrote in cursive to give her project a personal touch. Click here to see how she made it!
Tea Jars: Chalkboard Tea Jars are just adorable! I like how she used them to organize her spices. This is a must try! Click here to see for yourself.
#TWO – SIMPLE AND EASY
I really like how all her DIY projects are simple and easy to create, making them perfect for college students. Pintrest is overloaded with awesome, but complicated craft ideas. It’s rare to find crafting projects like hers that are both simple and beautiful.
Coodos to Shelby for her stylish dorm room decor (pictured to the left) – pretty lights, cozy bed, and well-organized “mini-closet” under her bed…yes please!!
Click here to check out her cool post about DIY coffee mug designs. Hint: They include gold spray-paint…enough said.
#THREE – MESSY CRAFTING
“I really like making a mess too, so I hope you’ll stick around to see what havoc I wreak..”
I love this!! I think it’s great that she has a “messy” crafting environment. If you aren’t comfortable making a mess then you shouldn’t be crafting. You go girl!
#FOUR – PRETTY PICTURES
Quality pictures are a must for any blog, and this girl is doing it right. Her pictures are well-framed, pretty, and intriguing. They make me want to try her DIY projects and ask the question, “What will she think of next.”
DO SOMETHING NICE. SHOW SOME SUPPORT. FOLLOW SHELBYTRIES.
Thanks for stopping by y’all!
