Trash To Treasure: Animal Print Mirror


If you are on a tight budget, but want to do decorate your dorm room or bedroom, this DIY project is your solution. You can create this trendy mirror for less than $7.00!

There is nothing better than a DIY project that includes recycling and doesn't require much cash. Man, I love when that happens! The embroidery hoop gives this mirror dimension, which makes it look more designed (and a little more expensive!). I painted the inside of my embroidery hoop to give it more interest. I think the hint of blue really makes the mirror pop! I could have just painted the inside black, but I am happy with my decision to do something a little different.

Lots of news! First, we're gearing up to bring you a new series on our YouTube Channel! The name of the series is called "Stash Crashers" and if you've ordered from Blitsy - your stash could get crashed! That's all I'm going to tell you about that for now, but I also wanted to let you in on another cool thing we've started...

Starting TODAY if you share your Blitsy purchase on Instagram you could win $50 towards your next order! Here's how you can enter

1. Take a picture of the items you purchased from Blitsy 
(or a screenshot of your Blitsy Haul video on Youtube would also be acceptable)
2. Upload the picture to Instagram
3. Tag your picture with #blitsyhaul 




We will be on the lookout for your pictures! On the last day over EVERY month we will choose a random winner and announce it on our Instagram account. You can enter as many times as you'd like (with different pictures). Just a quick heads up, if your account is set to private we will not be able to include the entry because we won't have the ability to see it.

Build and Design Your Own Pen Holder!


If your marker collection has gotten out of control, you need this Kaiser Kraft Beyond The Page Marker & Pen Holder!

You get all of the raw wood pieces needed to build your very own marker holder. The storage even comes with a drawer and a cubby in the back so you can store all of your other craft supplies. Since this comes as plain wood, you can paint it, spray it, or Mod Podge it!

I painted my wood pieces a bright pink and added black and white striped paper to the outside. To finish my storage container, I cut out pretty flowers and Mod Podged them on top of my striped paper. When I was finished, I added my markers, color wash spray, washi tape, glitter, and scissors to my new storage container
