3:14 p.m., Jan. 23, 2014--As the weather gets colder, Blue Hens looking for a wintertime project are invited to check out a new “do-it-yourself” board housed on the University of Delaware’s official Pinterest account for inspiration. 

The board features projects — including clothes, decorations, food, furniture and more — designed by creative Hens. For an example, see this Vine posting.

Funding from the National Center for Women and Information Technology Academic Alliance, in partnership with Symantec, will support an e-textiles workshop.

Confronting binge drinking

UD recently hosted a Binge Media Challenge to encourage students to use social media to confront the issue of binge drinking.

The UD.I.Y. board features photos and instructions from UD students, faculty, staff and alumni with a knack for creating.

Several pins will include step-by-step instructions while others will directly link to the designer’s blog. 

“Whether it’s remodeling your desk, coming up with a delicious recipe or simply turning old into new, this do-it-yourself board will inspire things that are artistic and innovative,” said Liz Zenz, an intern on the social media team in UD’s Office of Communications and Marketing. 

UD’s social media team will update the board regularly to showcase the ingenuity of Blue Hens and serve as an inspiration for aspiring do-it-yourselfers.

Any Blue Hens who want to contribute their own photos and projects to the UD.I.Y. Pinterest board can email socialmedia@udel.edu for details.
