You want to know my idea of a perfect summer morning? I’ll give you a hint: there is crafting involved. Seriously, to be able to wake up and stay in pajamas with bare feet and get some sort of craft going without a time limit? Nirvana. However, I find that most of my spare summer mornings are taken up with the planning, not the doing. You know what I’m talking about. You feel the DIY bug strike and you start to look for something to make. Next thing you know, you’ve got an entire Pinterest board dedicated to crafts that, most likely, will never see the light of day. Trouble is, sometimes that step of gathering all the right components for the perfect DIY is more hassle than its worth. That just plain takes the sunshine right out of the equation.
Thoey Ngo created Eco Monster to satisfy the trifecta of conscious living: handcrafted, sustainable, DIY. By creating DIY kits for people of all ages, anyone can get the joy out of creating something by hand without the stress of having to go out and get all of the materials. (Full disclosure: I have at least six partially created DIY projects in the closet waiting for one or more components needed to complete them.) And talk about the perfect gift! Is you or someone you know traveling anytime soon? This DIY Travel Map Kit World Map is absolutely genius and you will forever be known as the friend that gives the coolest gifts. Now, if that’s not a ray of sunshine, I don’t know what is!
