by Roeshel on June 24, 2011

One more week to enter!

Special Edit to the TGIF Feature:  Giveaways now run ALL MONTH long!

Every MONTH the DIY Club features Esty shops or bloggers, those dedicated DIY’ers who’ve taken that extra step to provide others with handmade gifts, decor, vintage and thrifty finds and more.  Not only do you get to meet the business owner behind the shop/blog and add some things to your wish list but there will  be a DIY goodie giveaway every weekend!  You’re going to want to mark your calender:


The Giveaway runs the first Friday of the month for the entire MONTH here at the DIY Club.  Winner will be chosen randomly and announced shortly after the end of the month.



MEET: Renee from

Where The Grass is Greener


Country Tag Sale

First and foremost, Renee is mom to three active boys. Most of her spare time is spent volunteering at school or cheering her kids at the soccer or lacrosse fields. She is a magazine and newsletter writer, who also runs two etsy shops. Her vintage shop, Country Tag Sale fuels her hobby of scouring flea markets, yard sales and estate sales for unique finds. Her art shop, Where The Grass is Greener, is where she transforms ordinary objects into one-of-a-kind pieces of art by incorporating found objects such as vintage jewelry with many different art mediums.

She is offering your choice of one of the following art pieces as this month’s giveaway.
An original, “Loveliest Fairy” collage that can be personalized with up to four letters. This collage, inspired and crafted in part from text that appeared in an antique children’s book, The Velveteen Rabbit, is framed without glass because it is three-dimensional. Value $25.
An original mixed media collage on 5”x7” painted vintage wood block. Features embossing, mulberry papers, vintage jewelry and watch parts. The saying reads, “What Courage it Takes to Believe in a Dream.” Value $20.
Fun and funky sign welcome sign created with copper, vintage game pieces, vintage jewelry, vintage paper ephemera, special papers and inks. Value $25.

Beautiful, unique, one of a kind art for your home!

She is also offering 15% off all items in both of her shops for the entire month ofJune to all of her followers! Just enter the following coupon codes at checkout: for Country Tag Sale the code is COUNTRYTAG15 and for Where The Grass is Greener is WTGIG15.
