I woke up one fine morning to an email message on my iphone from Darby Smart – You’ve been accepted as a designer!

I was so giddy with excitement that I told everyone in my household. Probably even fudge and joy. As the excitement passed, reality set in. They send starter kits to designers to help them get ideas flowing and as I am residing in Singapore, I wasn’t sure if they would be willing to send the starter kit all the way here. An alternative was to send it to my brother who is living in the US but he was coming home in a couple of days and the kit would probably not have arrived in time. Much to my surprise, Darby Smart staff were extremely accommodating and sent the kit all the way to Singapore. Check out the second picture – it even went through TSA :P



I was literally like a young kid as I opened the kit, admiring the turquoise cardboard box with chevron pattern on the side – I just love the design of the box! The kit was filled with so much goodness that I was spoiled for choice! We don’t get Ball mason jars readily in Singapore so receiving them was such a joy. My idea came quickly to me and I started creating the kit that night. Its finally up on Darby Smart where you can view and buy the kit – hanging votives.


I was inspired by my mom’s beautiful garden as I created the kit. In the day, the garden looks absolutely beautiful but as night falls, we can no longer see the plants and flowers. I thought it would be such a great opportunity to use mason jars to create votives that we could hand all around the garden. I urge you to try to make the votives tiered as they just look so much prettier!


The best thing about buying a kit from Darby Smart is that it includes everything you need to make the DIY that you choose. The kits are shipped right straight to your doorstep (shipping is free) and you can get right down to work without having to worry about gathering supplies. The kits are really well packed in their cute turqoise chevron box. All kits are limited edition and available for 60 days – hurry before you forget!


If you buy the kit, I would love to see your creation! Share your photos on pinterest, twitter and instagram with the hashtag #darbysmart.

Darby smart has kindly created codes for me to share the kit with my family, friends and readers. There are 25 codes available which give $5 off – the code is lightmeup. Enjoy!
