Spoonful Tribe Craft Boxes

Spoonful Tribe Craft Boxes

I was sent a Spoonful Tribe Craft Box to review for this post.  As always I only review products and companies that I adore, and ALL opinions are 100% my own.

Last year I had the privilege of meeting a fellow Atlanta-area blogger at a blog event that I hosted.  Well, since then, she and her gorgeous family have actually moved to the same city as I’m in, and it turns out, we’ve got an awful lot in common besides blogging.  She home schools her kiddos {and I’m planning on following in her footsteps once it’s our turn for school}, she’s got three little ones {and this mama’s got a bun in the oven, so number three will be here before I know it}, and she and I both {of course} have a love for all things crafty and handmade.

I’m so excited to share her latest venture with all of you,

Spoonful Tribe

You’ve heard of such “box deliveries” as Birchbox and Stitch Fix, I’m sure.

Well, what about a craft box, delivered to your door monthly, full of super cute, super easy crafts to make!?

Erica, puts thoughtful time deciding which crafts would be the perfect companion to each other for each monthly box.  She and her sweet kiddos shop for supplies and have fun assembling everything together for each Spoonful Tribe member, and her husband even helps her make video tutorials for each craft!  The video tutorials have got to be my most favorite part.  It makes the crafting process SO easy, and it also makes you feel like you’ve got a friend crafting right along with you.

Everything pictured above {with the exception of the cute crafting magnet, made by Erica} was created by myself from the January Spoonful Tribe Box!  To reserve a box for February, click here!

If you order by February 8th,  you should receive your box before Valentine’s Day.

There are a few different pricing options including monthly and yearly subscriptions.

I seriously cannot say enough nice things not only about Erica, but also about the concept of the Spoonful Tribe.  It’s such a fun idea and her crafting style totally rocks!

Beaded Wire Wine Glass Markers

Beaded Wire Wine Glass Markers

Several weeks ago, I shared these adorable and easy beaded wire wine glass markers over at one of the blogs I contribute to, Smart School House.  In case you missed them, I wanted to make sure to share them again with all of you!

To make your own set, you’ll need:

black 20 gauge wire

wire cutters

needle nose pliers

coordinating beads {small and large}

wine glasses

WINE

I went with black and white beads and some of them had a few pops of color as well.  The process is so easy, anyone can do it!

I just unraveled a couple inches of wire and cut it using my wire cutters.  I bent one end using the needle nose pliers {no rhyme or reason to how I bent, just made a little squiggly design}.  I then added small and large beads how I thought they looked best.  When I felt that I had a good length {most were about 5 1/2-6 inches long}, I bent the other end with my pliers and admired my handy work.

Since these will eventually be a gift, I made a set of four and tested them out on my favorite wine glasses.

Let me tell ya, they are my new favorite thing.

They would make the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of your favorite wine as a hostess gift too!

Cheers!

Thumbprint Valentines {For the Grandparents}

Thumbprint Valentines {For the Grandparents}

Last week I shared a super cute thumbprint magnet that the boys and I made for their grandparents this Valentine’s Day.

Well, I needed a cute way to package the Valentine.  So, I searched through the mess that is my craft closet and discovered a few goodies that I had stashed away from a Pick Your Plum order {the tiny circular tins and the cute kraft and polka dot bags}!

I also broke out my Cricut Mini and cut a few open hearts and rounded rectangles on some Valentine paper.

If you’re in the market for a cutting machine…be patient!  Cricut is selling their all-new Cricut Explore on HSN this February 12th!

Even though the new machine is coming out, I definitely still love my Mini!

Once my hearts and rectangles were cut out, I used my paper cutter and corner rounding punch to trim the cute Valentine saying that I printed out.  I also used a dab of paint for each kiddo and put their thumbprints on the paper Valentine as well.  My inspiration from the saying was from this sweet blog {I adore all of her creations}.

After a bit of glue {I just used a glue stick} and some pink washi tape, I soon had all these Valentine gifts ready to send out!

I just love those tiny thumbprints!

Say Thank You With Minted

Say Thank You With Minted

This post is sponsored by Minted, a company that I adore.  All opinions are 100% my own!

Christmas has come and gone, and it was oh-so-wonderful!  I hope yours was just as lovely.

My boys are fortunate to have some fantastic people in their lives that definitely showered them with lots of love {and gifts} this year.  To let them know just how much the boys appreciate their new toys, I made these gorgeous thank you notes courtesy of my dear friends at Minted.

Say Thank You this year with Minted and www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com #thankyounotes #paperproducts #stationery

One of the things that I absolutely love about Minted are all the little extra details that you can add on to your cards.  I chose to add the “Skinny Wrap Address Labels” that are {I think} some of the cutest address labels I’ve ever seen.  I love that they wrap around the top of the envelope.

Another add on that I chose to get were these cute envelope closure stickers.  I don’t know about where you live, but in Georgia it is most definitely still winter!  So these snowflakes are the perfect way to finish the Thank You notes!

And, let me just add.  The QUALITY of the paper is phenomenal.  Their signature paper is thick {120 lb., 17 point thickness} and to me–perfection.  When I get photo cards made with a thicker paper, I know that means high quality.  They’ve got five options total for digital printing…you gotta love options, right?!

Say Thank You this year with Minted and www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com #thankyounotes #paperproducts #stationery

Once the thank you’s were written, the envelopes stuffed, and the stickers….stuck…they were ready to pop in the mailbox and send on their merry little way!

If you’re in need of Thank You Notes, Valentine’s, Baby Announcements, and pretty much any other pretty paper or stationery product you can imagine, please consider using Minted!  I assure you, you won’t be disappointed!

The Giving Jar

The Giving Jar

Let’s talk ThanksGIVING {after all, it’s only three days away}.  Today I wanted to share a super cute {and ridiculously easy craft with all of you}.  I call it…

Make a giving jar to keep all of your loose change and #donate it at the end of the year or on a special holiday via www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com #giving #thanksgiving #charity #payitforward

The Giving Jar might be the easiest {and cutest} way to pay it forward.  To make your own you’ll need the following:

large mason jar

cute scrapbook paper

bakers twine

cute embellishments {found all of mine on sale at Michael’s}

alphabet stickers

3″ circle punch

There isn’t a rhyme or reason as to how to put your Giving Jar together, the only rule I followed was to make it cute.

I used the circle punch to cut a perfect circle for the the lid of the mason jar then used the rest of my embellishments to fancy it up.

Now, what exactly is a Giving Jar?!

Simple.

It’s the place you put all your leftover change and single dollar bills and at the end of the year {or maybe even Thanksgiving}, you GIVE it away.  Maybe you take it to Starbucks and buy drinks for as many people as possible, maybe you head to the grocery store and give it to a mom with three little kids riding in her cart and clinging to her pants, maybe you simply take it to your church and put it in the offering basket.  Whatever you choose to do with it, it’s your choice and your gift of giving; that’s the beauty of it!

You could even make individual giving jars for your kids to contribute their own money to each week.

Where would you take your Giving Jar?

Happy ThanksGIVING everyone!
