Show & Tell: Darby Smart Wood Burning Kit

Hello!

I have a ton of projects to share over the next week after a productive couple of days. My first project to share has been a long time coming. I got a Darby Smart box a couple of months ago. If you haven't heard of Darby Smart, it's kinda like a Birchbox for crafting. You can sign up for a monthly craft to be sent your way, or you can purchase a specific craft on it's own (or even just parts of a box if you don't need everything in the project). I previously received a Darby Smart box for metal stamp bracelets. I had so much fun trying out a new craft, I decided to get a second box.

This time I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new. My husband's grandfather and grandmother were a very talented team of furniture building and wood burning experts. We have some truly beautiful pieces they crafted. I'll never be that good, but it inspired me try it out.

I got the wood burner, a kit of letters and some wood pieces to try it out. My first piece is pretty shaky (who knew letters would be so difficult?!), but I think my second try (the spoons) turned out better. I am going to keep working on it and maybe I'll become mediocre!
