INTRODUCING MAKE29
I started my blog when I was 20. On February 22nd, I'll turn 29. I have been writing and sharing online for my entire 20s. That feels like a Big Deal and I wanted to attempt a birthday challenge & business adventure to celebrate. After much thought I developed this concept. It's twelve handmade and limited edition projects.
One per month for a year.

A lot has changed since I wrote my first post as a 20-year-old in college. But one thing has stayed the same; I still love to make stuff.

HOW IT WORKS
On the 22nd of each month for a year, I will release in the shop a new handmade product. Most of the items will be made by me, but some will be commissioned out to fellow crafters who have a unique skill or expertise.

Each project was thoughtfully considered and inspired by something I have loved, made or shared on the blog in the past nine years. You can expect to see letterpressing, sewing, knitting & woodworking (and who knows? maybe even some plants). Depending on the item, the products will be available in quanities of 29 or 290. Because of the short time-frame and handmade nature, these are special editions and will not be produced or sold again.

Products will be available on a first come basis. I will be sending out a newsletter and blogging about each item in advance of the 22nd so you can know what to expect including price and time of release. While there is no "subscription service" offered, if you purchase any item from the make29 shop, you'll receive a unique coupon code with your shipped order for 10% off your next purchase.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO MAKE STUFF
...and this project is truly a celebration of that. It's been a long time since I have been so excited about a business venture and this is going to be quite the creative challenge. I figure no matter what happens it will be a success because I'll try some new things and collaborate with some awesome people. The goal, of course, is to push myself creatively and to sell some well-crafted items. By the end of the year (in the very worst case scenario) I'll have a fully stocked online shop and a greater understanding of what sort of creative ventures thrill me most.

Thank you so much for following my crafting adventures and supporting handmade. This is going to be a very good year.
