Dip DIYing with Corinne for Re:create at About.com

About a month ago I met with the fabulous Corinne Leigh and her amazing DIY team to film a DIY video based on my dipped chopsticks DIY which I painted with nail polish… Do you remember it? click the image below for a refresher!

Well Corinne loved it and wanted to expand on the idea for her new DIY web series on About.com called Re:create. Corinne had one of the first ever DIY blogs/vlogs on the internet called Threadbanger and even though the blog is no longer live, she posts regularly to the Threadbanger YouTube channel. She’s got a tremendous archive of DIY videos {and fun Halloween costumes} so you should definitely check her out asap…

We had a blast filming this DIY together, which really turned out amazing. You can see my bio video here ::cringe:: and the actual DIY video here. Once it becomes available on the YouTube channel, I’ll embed it in this post so it’s easier to view.

Here are a few fun behind the scenes snapshots…

Check out Corinne’s DIY bug brooch above & her awesome dinosaur necklace in the photo below!

    I watched it last night and loved it! I saved some chopsticks from our sushi order last week so I could dip DIY them. I hope them turn out as sweet as yours 🙂

    this has nothing to do with anything, but my mom just gave me a printer’s drawer (i think that is what it is) that looks JUST LIKE the display unit with thread and stuff!!! MINE will be used for jewelry.

    and her hair? her face? wow! she is made for tv. they could base a disney character off of her! villain or temptress. or both! 🙂
