Theme: St Patricks crafts
DIY Challenger: Hi Jenny Brown

Meeeeeet Hi Jenny Brown.

Jenny is an amazing crochet pattern designer and blogger. She’s ridiculously creative + witty. She’s sold over 1,000 crochet patterns on Etsy, Ravelry, Craftsy. Personally, I don’t see how she can sleep and get everything done that she does. But she does it.

Jenny even installs “yarn bombs” to delight strangers + does some “hooking for good”. Yuuup. “Hooking for good” is a real thing.

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. I met Jenny as a fellow audience member of Michelle Ward’s Creative Live class, “Dream Career Creators”. Enlisting Jenny as the first DIY Challenge Guinea pig is a proud moment for me, as Promo Analyzer was the first “dream career” I thought of during the class.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1381″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]“Hello” yarn bomb Hi Jenny Brown installed outside of Whole Foods on Rhode Island Ave in San Francisco during our Creative Live class with Michelle Ward[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Hi Jenny Brown takes on the DIY Challenge with St Patricks Crafts

I turned to Jenny – my friend, similar name sharer, all around crafty gal – because I knew she would amaze you. Before I finished packing up the box of goodies to send her way, Jenny asked specifically for a water bottle and a shirt for her St Patricks crafts. Those are two “hot” giveaways, so I didn’t think anything of it.

In the box they went…[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1389″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]

St Patricks crafts made from promo items

I’m green with envy Hi Jenny Brown came up with these creative ideas.

1. DIY sock koozies made from tie-dyed Hanes socks.
I got these Hanes socks free in an event swag bag. Yup, because unless you are a celebrity at the Grammys, you are probably getting items in your swag bag that are under 10 bucks. Check out the full details on how to make diy sock koozies.

Say what?? Yup. I told you Jenny is amazing. She looked up a tutorial on how to make crochet from tshirts. In this one she used a tshirt I got from the Evernote Conference in San Francisco. Girl’s a genius.

Plus, no promo items went to waste. Look at this little cutie in stylish Arizona Iced Tea sunglasses I got at the NCSA (National Convenience Store Association) event in Vegas.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Below is a fun graphic I put together for Hi Jenny Brown’s DIY Challenge.

Lastly – I can’t decide. Beer Koozie or Beer Coozie? I’ll just be using them interchangeably…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
