Crafty Creatives Taster Box - a look back

As you know, I've been posting a lot about Crafty Creatives the past few months. It's been a really fun subscription service and I am glad I got in fairly early! Recently they started offering a taster box- a box with a selection of things they've had in past boxes. I only missed the first two boxes but  knew I'd be happy with any extras from the boxes I had received so far, so at the beginning of this month I ordered one! It came this weekend (where it was luckily NOT held hostage by my student neighbors as I managed to collect it from them before the last one left for Christmas break) and I thought I'd share what I got with you! These boxes are still available to order!

December! Crafty Creatives Box 6

Winter is well and truly here. Along with cold weather and icy sidewalks, the viruses have arrived. And not just the colds and flus- but the fun stomach viruses that kids love to share. Luckily we weren't hit hard this time around, but I spent a good day and a half feeling weak and wobbly, and wishing I had some nice brothy soup. Things weren't allowed to come to a complete halt but instead came to a crawl, which ended on a high note.

I think you can guess what that high note was!

Nostalgic Treats

I have been wanting and planning on a tutorial for you guys, and the weather keeps thwarting me! Even on the sunniest of days, my photos are just not cutting it. Additionally, the past few weeks I've been working hard on a few new things and some commissions- and it's not going to quiet down for a few more weeks! This is the busiest time of the year for me. So, to tide you over until I do manage to get the sunshine to cooperate for me, here are some things I've made in the past few weeks, including some nostalgic favourites.

Bouche de Noel, or Yule log pendants!
