Darby Smart is a craft supply website with a twist. You can purchase individual craft supplies or you can purchase curated kits that contain all the products needed to make a DIY craft project from beginning to end. There is a very wide range of projects to choose from in an equally wide range of prices. Another thing I found interesting were the "Starter Kits". Let's say your thing is wood burning or it is something you really want to try, just purchase the starter kit for $39 and you'll receive a wood burning pen, alphabet stamps and a wood coaster set to get started on. This is a really cool concept for crafters like me who get a little overwhelmed when trying to get started in a new craft. I don't always want to make huge investments to try a new craft out. This is a much more affordable way to test the waters.
They also have a monthly subscription box called t"To DIY For" in which they send you all the products needed to complete that months project but the contents are a surprise until you receive them. The monthly cost is $19 per month. This month's To DIY For box contained a skein of bulky yarn and a small roll of a regular acrylic yarn. The instructions on their website, which the link to is printed on the card in your box, show you how to hand crochet a scarf. Below is the video I made taking you through the how to with pictures of the contents, screenshots and the finished product. I am going to continue to subscribe to the monthly subscription and bring you videos each month of the projects and as often as I can I will purchase additional boxes with projects that interest me and bring you videos of those as well. I've also come up with a scoring/rating system for these products to better help me evaluate the overall value of the product. I listed the Rating for this project below the video. Thank you so much for crafting with me today!
