Testing new craft tools and art supplies.
This was what I was thinking a few days ago while I was checking my e-mail inbox. I received a mail from a trainee student of corporate communications from Tchibo, a German company that sells coffee, clothes, housewares and many other things, depending on their current campaign. This lady told me that they noticed me because of my beautiful blog and that there was going to be a new campaign about crafts and DIY and then she asked me if they could send me a package with some of their new products to test them and that it would be nice if I could report about my crafting experiences with their new tools and materials.
Oh my gosh, I was so excited, because this is the first time a huge company has been approaching me and asked me to promote their wares. I was so flattered and I immediately agreed! :)
On Saturday I received a huuuge package with lots of tools and supplies. They sent me colorful cardboards, ironing foil, a precision cutter (I forgot to include it in the photo :)), a circle cutter (my favourite item!), a set with textile colors and patterns, a set for making jewellery and an embossing set. <3
When I opened the package, I immediately thought about what to create with all these things and I instantly had many ideas, I'm gonna show you the first project in the following post. :)
Wow, I still have difficulties realizing how my little business has developed and that more and more people are contacting me who want to talk about sponsorships or possible blog features.
I'm glad that I have been asked to test new craft supplies, because this is sooo much fun and I love trying out something new. :)
Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for what I will do with my new toys. :)
