LMS Studio Arts Tea dye kit!





I am feeling extra crafty lately. This weekend, I scored an awesome wood kitchen table at a yard sale for $32 (Sorry for the bragging here, I'm just proud of myself!) and I'll be whipping it into shape this week while warm weather moves in. I think dyeing fiber with tea sounds like another fun project for someone! LMS Studio Arts sent in this lovely kit (with instructions) for dyeing wool with tea!

LMS Studio Arts has a gorgeous website, I think you should all check out! Lots of beautifully carded fibers and yummy yarns! It really is the perfect week to do something crafty for yourself!

Visit LMS Studio Arts today, find something you love and write it in the comments section below. You'll be entered to win this kit! Gain extra entries by pinging on your social networks: facebook, pinterest, plurk, twitter etc.
