Craft bonanza!

In January I got an email from the lovely Claire of Crafty Creatives to ask me if they could use one of my illustrations for the art card in their woodland themed box. Of course I said a BIG FAT YES!
Crafty Creatives is a company run by two sisters which launched last year. They offer a once a month mystery craft box in the post. Subscribers will get a selection of crafty goodies to inspire their creativity all lovingly packaged up in a little box. Each box has a theme, for example past themes have been floral, nautical and oriental.
Along with lots of inspiring arty bits the boxes also contain an art card which doubles up as a description of the box contents, so i was chuffed to think one of my illustrations would be in each of the CC subscribers boxes. What i didn't expect was a complimentary box of my very own. Woo hoo! DOUBLE BONUS :)

When it arrived a little tingle of excitement went through me - its a bit like a mini Christmas.
Et voila:

So whats in it well......

- 2 cute fox ceramic fox beads
- 3 toadstool beads
- Skeleton leaves
- An owl pendant
- Owl fabric
- 3 birch hearts
- Wooden leaf buttons
- A pine cone
- Flower soft products (2 pots of sprinkles - a bit like glitter and glue) 
- 5 leaf pendants
- A needle felting kit and instructions
- And of course the art card

If you're someone who loves making stuff and experimenting with new techniques then this is the perfect product for you. Its a also a great way to get your craft fix whilst being able to moderate your spending on materials. Check out www.craftycreatives.com
