How to Get Creative at MIXXER Makerspace

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MixxerCommunity #MakeStuffLearnStuff

Have you ever had a project in mind, but did not have all of the tools needed to bring it to life? Let me tell you about a super cool place I recently discovered, which is a maker's dream! MIXXER Community Makerspace is a DIY community space where you have access to the tools you need to create projects in electronics, sewing, woodworking, metalworking, and more! Mixxer’s mission is to provide access to Tech, Tools, and Community, as well as training.

Prior to this opportunity, I had never heard of Mixxer, but as a DIYer, I was definitely exited to learn more! I visited the Mixxer location in the the Industry Hill Neighborhood in downtown Winston-Salem, NC (my hometown.) Alan, the Executive Director, was gracious enough to give me and my husband a personal tour, answered all of our questions, and helped me with each step of my project. Currently, Mixxer is only open to members for safety reasons and they are taking precautions to keep everyone healthy, such as mandatory masks and temperature checks at the door. There are a variety of memberships available including individual, student, and family options.  Mixxer does currently offer limited in-person workshops, along with offering some virtual classes. While Mixxer is only open to members, anyone can join!

Butterfly Box Review - Christian Gift Idea

I am partnering with FrontGate Media to share a wonderful faith-based subscription box from Butterfly Box. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am always on the lookout for unique gift ideas for my friends, especially ones that have meaning. I was excited to get to review this subscription box geared toward Christian women. 

I think this description of Butterfly Box is perfect: "Life is busy, and it can be hard to find the time each day to connect with Christ. Butterfly Box is here to help! We thoughtfully curate a themed box each month to help reclaim those quiet moments with God, build your intimacy with Christ, and live out your faith in the world around you!"
