Whimsey Box

If you know me or follow me on Instagram, you know that I love to craft. For awhile I got stuck in a crafting rut. I made the same type of craft over and over again. While I still enjoyed making it, I don't have anywhere else in my house to use glitter clothespins. Of course, I went to Pinterest searching for new craft ideas to try. I found a few but it was so hard to figure out the materials I needed. I often had to go to several different stores to acquire all the materials and sometimes I under estimated the cost. Being a teacher (with no summer paycheck) I am definitely a crafter on a budget!
Look at how pretty this box is! Also I love this quote! 
One day I came across the Whimsey Box website. I remember reading about it and thinking it was almost too good to be true. Whimsey Box is a subscription box for crafts! It is amazing. Each month they send you a box with all of the materials and directions you need in order to complete a craft. I absolutely love it! The best part? It is only $15 a month and it comes to my mailbox! I get so excited every time I come home and there is a Whimsey Box waiting for me.

Whimsey Box has caused me to break out of my crafting comfort zone and try new things. I have to admit, sometimes I would get frustrated and have to come back to the craft later. How ever I am extremely grateful for the new crafting skills I have learned.

I definitely recommend this subscription box for crafters or anyone who wants to learn to craft. Whimsey Box provides step by step directions (with pictures) as well as links to videos you can watch in case you need extra support! The videos are very helpful.

I actually picked a craft from the Whimsey Box to make for my sisters for Valentine's Day (shh! it's a secret!). Please let me know if you try it out! I would love to hear your thoughts! Also let me know if you have any awesome crafts I should try. I am always looking for something new and different! 

Are you crafty? What is your favorite craft?
