Getting inspired couldn’t be easier than with a subscription to The Crafter’s Box. I certainly enjoy crafting but often find it difficult to get started. Enter The Crafter’s Box. They provide all of the supplies (which vary based on the craft) and thorough instruction (including YouTube videos). Then gather a group of like-minded creatives and presto! A “crafternoon” with the ladies!
Hopefully you didn’t miss my post earlier this week on hosting a sophisticated Halloween soirée. When you see our spread, you’ll understand how we coined the hashtag #cocktailingcrafters. These crafting dates are the perfect excuse for 5 busy moms and entrepreneurs to get together to raise a glass of bubbly and get creative. We gather before school pick-up and have until mid-afternoon to complete our projects.
Admittedly, setting up our party is half the fun. We each have a role (although I’m not sure what mine really is??); we swoon over Erin of Yay Parties decor, nosh on delicious finger foods that our children would not likely touch, and pose as Kristen Honeycutt works her photo magic! As you would expect, the best part of the afternoon is the conversation in between. We appreciate each other’s unique perspective on the craft while sharing the trials of motherhood and small business ownership.
Erin’s moons were perfect (of course!)
Seriously, The Crafter’s Box takes all of the stress out of crafting. And yes, there is such a thing as “crafters stress” – what to do? how to set up? what supplies to get and where? Often times I have creative inertia; overwhelmed with all of the possibilities and decisions. With The Crafter’s Box it’s all…well, in the box.
And, if our party has offered inspiration for your next gals get-together, soon The Crafter’s Box will be offering a ‘Crafter’s Night’ subscription. You can expect the same great projects, materials, and access to online training and inspiration but in a set of 5 (cocktails don’t seem to be included). Invite the ladies, set the table, and get your craft on!Sally kindly hosted our crafting party in her new shop, Anders. In her Ballard store, you can find a beautifully curated array of sustainable home wares, organic apothecary, and unique jewelry. Stop in to drool over her gorgeous space (the wallpaper is my favorite!) or you can peruse her selection online as well.
Kirsty, of The Kirsty Files, is the ring leader of our group. Quick to laugh, she also always brings the best food.
Kristen is the woman behind the lens- she makes a rare appearance in our group shot. Kristen somehow manages to take (and edit) all of the shots featured here and still finish her crafting project!
We thoroughly enjoyed our creative collaboration. Stay tuned as are already planning a holiday-themed craft of our own! Would you like to see more crafting projects and home decor inspiration on the blog? Please leave a comment with your thoughts.
And thanks for reading! ~Jenn (and the ‘Cocktailing Crafters’)
