CraftersCrate Review and Giveaway

I don't know about all of you, but I love subscription boxes. Getting packages is already fun and I love adding the surprise element to the mix. Evie is obsessed with the idea of getting mail but since she's only 4, it doesn't happen all that often. So when the CraftersCrate came for us to review, Evie was extremely excited. The first thing you see opening the box is an envelope containing a map, each different area is a kit theme. This particular kit was Safari. There is a storybook, packet with games, activities, and puzzles, a sticker for your map, and then ... Read More

When Evie was about 18 months old we went on a trip to California and I made this airplane busy book for the trip. It was the first busy book I've ever made and I wanted show it off, even though the project is years old and I would do a lot of things differently if I made it now. I wanted all the pages to be different aspects of travel so I started with a suitcase. The suitcase zips and inside are some different pieces of clothing that can be put on the little girl.

So when Stephanie from Swoodson Says suggested a virtual busy bag exchange, I was really excited. I would just have to come up with an idea for a single busy bag, so I could put a lot of effort into making a super awesome one. And I might have gone a little overboard... What You Need: Clothespins Clothesline (I found one at the Dollar Tree. I tried to use thinner twine I had around but it wasn't thick enough for the clothespins to stay ... Read More

There's a few more days to take advantage of the big Silhouette Black Friday sale. I picked up a bunch of supplies and I'm really excited to play around with them! One of the supplies that Silhouette sent me to try out was the double-sided adhesive and I knew I wanted to use it for a Christmas craft with Evie. I used the Christmas tree cutting file that is already in the Silhouette Studio software. It had an inner outline that I ungrouped and deleted so that it was just a solid shape. I picked out two different green colored pom poms for the tree and I also ... Read More
