Crafty Creatives Club

I just went onto Google to search for the website for this monthly craft kit club and it doesn't appear on Google at all, ladies, you need to sort your SEO out!  I managed to find them through Feedly as I thought I might have subscribed to their blog and I did.  Go here if you want to find out more.  Basically, Crafty Creatives is a monthly craft kit, posted to you for £10 + P&P.  You may have noticed that I LOVE trying new crafts, so I jumped in.  There was a waiting  list, so April was my first box and the theme was blue.  Want to see what I got?


Each month there is a little kit, this one is to make a cute bird mobile, it's by my chair in the living room, waiting for me to give it a go.


There were a couple of sheets of paper, an FQ, 3 tubes of Americana paint (I've read a lot about this paint so am quite excited to try it), a Stix2 pack which includes a tube of glitter, one of sequins and one of seed beads, a mini picture frame, some "jumping clay" and some little bits and bobs...


... some tiny little beads, a pack of felt beads and two birdie beads.  I was a bit alarmed by the clay as it had a leaflet with it saying it's for kids, I was worried they were going down the kids route but apparently it was just for us to try.  I got that information from their blog.  I love the idea of this club and I'm interested to see what I get in the months to come, I'm going to try it out for 6 months to give it a chance.  I do think they could make a LOT more of their blog though in terms of ideas and so forth, there's potential there for follow on sales.


I also got a parcel from the most lovely lady who sent me the fab crafty items in the photo above all the way from Saudi, just because.  Joy you are an absolute love, what a wonderful thing to do.  I can't wait to try out that thread and I'm head of heels with the needle packaging!

that little mobile will be so sweet... well I am a bit partial to little fat blue birds anyway...

Not bad for a tenner! When I saw the first photo I thought, ah, that's nice, but a bit pricey. Then I saw the second photo and thought, ah, that's better :)

I have also recently subscribed to this, and the blue box was my first. I must admit to being disappointed. Firstly with the contents, and then, upon looking at their blog for ideas finding none... I even looked at their pinterest board to see what people had made from previous boxes only to find loads of other stuff pinned there. I'll get another couple of months to see if it improves. It's a shame because the idea is so promising. The only good thing was that it wasn't full of cardmaking supplies with another token craft thing thrown in as usually happens with craft things nowadays. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

So is this a new list then, or new things on an old list?

Either way it looks like fun.

HAHA I thought just like Samantha did - when I saw the first photo I thought it was a rather sparse collection - then I saw the rest of the pictures :) It's a great idea for people like you who love to do all kinds of different, new and fun crafts :D
