This year we're celebrating ME-MADE-MAY Klum House-style, with a month-long bag making challenge! Whatever project has been sitting on the back burner for ages, whatever half-finished thing you started last summer, whatever kit you have stashed away in a closet gathering dust—this is the time to pull it out and get it DONE! If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, or like you haven’t been prioritizing your creative practice lately, now’s the time to get back on the horse. We're going to be right there with you for support, inspiration, community, accountability, and the occasional (loving) kick in the butt.
HERE'S HOW IT'S GOING TO WORK
In the next few days, we invite you to set a goal for yourself. If could be: finally finish that Slabtown Backpack I started last year, orlearn how to make my own leather straps, orset up a home bag making studio. Then shout your commitment out loud on social media using #bagmakingchallenge
Creative Pep Talks
Every Sunday in May, we'll be sharing inspirational content to help stoke your creative fire, both here in our newsletter and across our social media channels.
