About Trinkets in Bloom


My Story

I’m committed to making TIB the ideal destination for creative working women.

Trinkets in Bloom encourages personal style and self expression through fashion DIY’s with step by step project tutorials. So you can not only have fun, but gain the sense of accomplishment that comes from doing it yourself.

I started Trinkets in Bloom in 2010 as a place to share my fashion obsessions, but it wasn’t until 2012 when I started sharing what I was making and started focusing on fashion DIY tutorials that I found my groove and saw the potential in making your own style.

This site is a celebration of Creating Your Own Style.

At Trinkets in Bloom I believe that being crafty and “doing it yourself” is one of the great joys in life. It’s all about the feeling of accomplishment that comes from making something yourself.

As we move into the future I see the opportunity for Trinkets in Bloom to bloom (pun intended) into more of a go to destination for women who want to create something beautiful for every aspect of their lives. With inspiring editorial content filled with tips, tricks and DIYs featuring Style, Beauty, Art, Recipes and more. All with a focus on creating your own personal style and self expression.
