Partnering with Home Depot on Succulent Gardens!

April 25, 2013 | by Jocie (email) |

I have never been more excited to announce my sponsored partnership with Home Depot and their Do-It-Herself Workshops! Seriously, its like a dream come true! I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop over the next month, but I wanted to give you the advanced scoop on all the fun stuff I will be doing with Home Depot.

Do-It-Herself Workshops

Have you heard of the Do-It-Herself Workshops? They are WAY cool!  These FREE weekly workshops are a great way to get step-by-step instructions and hands on experience learning to do basic repairs and easy home improvements. Be sure to check your local The Home Depot store to see if it’s holding Do-It-Herself Workshops!

What is my role, you ask? Well, I will be at our local Home Depot on May 16th helping lead a Do-It-Herself workshop on succulents! Not a gardening guru? Me neither, but that’s the beauty of succulents. They are super hard to kill and lots of fun to plant. Whether you are local to Baltimore, MD (like me) or elsewhere, learn how to make your own succulent garden with The Home Depot and register for the May 16 DIH Workshop today!

Editors Note: The Do-It-Herself Workshop was a great success. If you missed it, here’s a short video showing how I made one of my succulent gardens. I hope you like it.

Twitter Party

Join The Better Half and The Home Depot on May 2 at 8:00 PM for a one-hour Twitter Party to learn about the Do-It-Herself Workshops: Inspired by Pinterest and succulent gardens! All the cool kids will be there!

If you aren’t already, be sure to follow OPC and The Better Half on Twitter and Home Depot so you don’t miss out on any of the excitement.

A Few More Surprises

There will be a few more exciting surprises over the coming month, including something that rhymes with “sift hard,” if you catch my drift, wink wink. Also stayed tuned for my guest post on Home Depot’s Apron Blog, unveiling my own succulent garden with a creative twist! Here’s a little sneak peek…

    I’m coming!!!!! Do we buy our supplies and bring with? or do we just watch you and then go home and DIY? So the glass? Holy Cow! You’re a genius! My kitties can’t dig this one up! Now where do I find a big glass hurricane for my succulents?

    • Jocie says:

      Yay! I’m so glad you can come! You don’t need to bring any supplies, we will do a demonstration and then you can gather supplies at the store. Make sure you register and I hear Home Depot mayl be giving away free stuff!

      so…you’ll have to wait for the post, but I didn’t use a hurricane glass but its not something the kitties can dig up, for sure! 🙂

    These workshops sound like so much fun! I definitely need to hop on that succulent bandwagon – fast!

  3. OurPinterestingFamily says:

    What a great opportunity, Jocie! I know you’ll do great!!

  4. Mary Sue Paulis says:

    Sounds great because I tend to have plants die on me. Maybe succulents is the way to go. Looking forward to it!

    Best of luck at the workshop! I”m pretty sure I am secure enough in my manhood that I’d be able to go to a Do-It-Herself workshop. I’ll have to check the workshop board at my local HD in Mass next time I am there (likely this afternoon, I go most afternoons just to check in).

  6. paintergal says:

    Well, look at you go! We aren’t near a HoDe otherwise I would be there participating. Love this idea!

  7. What a fun workshop! I should figure out if any of my local Home Depots are doing that too. I’m sure you’ll be awesome, can’t wait to hear all about it!

  8. Looks like fun! I’ll need to check to see if any of the local HD’s are doing this.

  9. Gwen says:

    HOw super fun! I wish I lived closer so I could come get all up in yo’ business! hehehe…

    Just followed you and HD on Twitter! Remind me about the party, girlie!

  10. I wish I was in Baltimore to come see you and participate – I am totally obsessed with succulents lately!

  11. how fun Jocie. I’ll have to see if the date works to come down!

  12. Vanessa says:

    That sounds like so much fun! Wish I was closer. 🙁

  13. Oh how fun! I would come if I lived closer! 🙂

    Congratulations Jocie! What an exciting adventure for you. I’m sure you’ll meet many OPC The Better Half fans and make many more. I’ll have to check the classes out when we get back home. I’m in Cali while hubby works waiting for Friday to head to Hawaii to meet our new granddaughter I told you about. She turned one month yesterday already.
    Maybe eventually HoDe will send you around the country for Do-It Herself as a celebrity teacher. Wouldn’t that be fun?
