My first Whimseybox

I was very interested a few months back when I read about Whimseybox on the Craftzine blog. It's a subscription to get a beautifully packaged array of art supplies and samples, it can be anything from polymer clay to fabric. I was so excited to try it but back then it was in the beginning stages and had limited availability so I signed up for an invite and in February I got invited! I received my first Whimsybox this month and I was so excited I took pictures as I was opening it.

It included simplicity trims, sharpie markers, Elmer's all purpose glue stick, scrapbook paper, and adhesive magnets. I can't wait to turn these into something crafty and you can go to the Whimseybox site and get inspiration from the projects page. Personally I love the idea of getting a surprise once a month and I'm already looking forward to next months' box!

Craft fair ahoy!

I'm busy getting ready for my next craft fair on March 31st the Odd duck handmade bazaar and indie craft fair.

 I've only been doing craft fairs for about six months but i already love them and the majority of them have gone well. An upcoming show motivates me to create new things and try out ideas I've had for awhile, for example, I made my first mermaid and a taco monster! This will also be my first craft show selling my monster plushies so I'm excited to see how they'll do.

( P.S. since I'm taking my camera I decided to DIY my own camera strap cover using the tutorial on Design sponge )
