Craft! It's Derby week!

It's officially Derby week! The Kentucky Derby is a big deal for the city of Louisville--not just the race, but the whole Kentucky Derby Festival.

Since the kick off of the KY Derby Festival with Thunder Over Louisville, there have been some events but this is the final week, packed full of activities until the first Saturday in May, when we will celebrate the Kentucky Derby with the 139th "Run for the Roses."

As a lifelong Louisvillian, I believe that this week is one of the best times to be in the city. It comes alive. The gorgeous plants and flowers are blooming for Spring and there is so much to do, and so much to see!

To celebrate, I have decided to share a KY Derby craft project every day this week!

You can get started early by checking out the plastic egg jockey craft or Derby Hat tutorials (video 1 and video 2), but be sure to come back each day this week for a fun new project!
