New Etsy Shop!

Hey All!

I’ve decided to finally open up an Etsy shop!

CLICK HERE!!!

There’s not much going on over there right now, but I’m hoping to have a mix of different things up soon.

The plan is for it to be mostly party related items such as invitations, decor, and instant downloads. Then I’ll be adding some cute graphic onesies and such!

I’m hoping this will help me save up some funds to put toward the big move that will hopefully be happening!

Check it out and follow my shop to stay updated, maybe I’ll have some things in there soon that’ll peak your interest!

April Whimseybox Review

Image

“You will receive a new DIY craft project each month with the materials and instructions necessary. Follow our tips and techniques or make it your own way.”
This is the fifth Whimseybox I have received. I failed to post a review for last month’s box, and as I was just about to I realized that I apparently didn’t take any photos. So, if a March Whimseybox Review happens to get posted far after March, you’ll know why. Anyway, Whimseybox costs $15 a month. April’s project was Calligraphy.

First Look

As always, super cute packaging! I especially loved the arrow art!

WHAT’S INSIDE:

This month’s box included a calligraphy pen with two different tips, ink, plenty of blank paper, examples to practice, and a calligraphy achievement button.

MY THOUGHTS: I’m so excited to try this project! Calligraphy has always been something that interested me, but I never gave it a shot. Once again, Whimseybox has not failed to deliver!

April Darby Smart Review

Image

“At Darby Smart, leading designers launch simple DIY projects based on the latest fashion and home trends. We turn their projects into kits that include chic materials and simple instructions, and send them to you. Create a unique design and show off your style.”

April was my second month receiving Darby Smart. I got my first box for only $9, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I was so impressed and liked it so much that I decided I’d continue my subscription for $19/month.

First Look

April’s project was Metal Stamping. This seemed fun and interesting!

WHAT’S INSIDE:

Image

This box came with a small hammer, and economy metal stamp set (in lower case letters), a metal square to use as a surface to stamp on so you don’t ruin your countertops, a chain, and nine little pendants to stamp. I love that Darby Smart includes every item you need to complete the project. I also love that they included so many pendants with different options to choose from. I actually tried out this project already. It was quick, easy, and fun! I stamped Kayde’s name on a circle pendant and put it on C’s keychain (which of course Kayde lost along with all C’s keys).

Image

MY THOUGHTS: I loved this project, totally worth the $19! It wasn’t difficult to do and left no messes to clean up after. Now to decide what to do with the rest of my pendants… so many options!

February Whimseybox Review

“You will receive a new DIY craft project each month with the materials and instructions necessary. Follow our tips and techniques or make it your own way.” This is the third Whimseybox I have received. I realize this review is nearly two months late, but it’s been a hectic few months. Better late than never, right? Whimseybox costs $15 a month. February’s project was needle felting. I’ve never tried needle felting before, but it looked fun and the project was really cute.

Image

First Look

I love Whimseybox’s packaging. The thick satin ribbon is a nice touch, and I love that the adorable print is the first thing you see.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

Image

Included for this project is all the felt needed to create a cute little bird (see below), needle felting foam, a felting needle set, a needle felting achievement button, and some washi tape as a fun little extra.

Isn’t this little birdie adorable?! I certainly did not make it, but this is the finished product for this project. Hopefully soon, I’ll get enough spare time to get all this crafting done!

MY THOUGHTS: This was the end of my 3 month sub with Whimseybox, It was so adorable and I love all the projects I’ve received, so I signed myself up for another 3 months! I really like that this is yet again another project that I have no experience with, but am capable of creating.
