I was contacted a while back by this wonderful site about doing a give away on my blog. Make It Ruby has the most wonderful projects for tween girls, which quite often use recycled materials. If you have a tween girl or know of one - she will LOVE this site!
Here is a bit about Ruby:
*Where are you from?
I am from San Francisco, California.
*Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am an 11 year old tween girl that believes that do-it-yourself projects are always considered the most valuable, because of the creative expression used to make them:)
*How did you decide on your site name?
My parents named me after my birthstone and I wanted to include my name in the site name. Make It Ruby seemed like the perfect fit.
*What is the main purpose of your site?
My site is an online DIY magazine for tween girls full of fun do-it-yourself projects for arts and crafts presented in three easy steps and encourages tween girls to be eco-friendly.
*How do you come up with the ideas for the projects on your site?
I am all about being eco-friendly. Every one of my projects starts with one of my "3 R's" reuse, renew, repurpose. I love finding really creative ways to turn everyday items that are going to be thrown away or recycled into fun DIY projects.
*What/who is your inspiration?
My Grandmother and Mother Nature are my two greatest inspirations.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I heart puffy paint and decorative jewels and could not live without all purpose tacky glue.
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist?
I go to school:)
What activities do you enjoy?
I love kicking it with my friends, throwing dance parties, going to school events, having movie night with my family, redecorating my room, making my own fashion, art & gifts.
*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
"All Buttoned Up Cereal Box Magazine Holder" is one of the projects I loved making. It is a fun project to make and a great decorative accessory to store all of my magazines.
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
