Whimseybox {Giveaway} – CLOSED

About a month ago, a crafty friend of mine from down the street mentioned that she’d love to get a group together for a craft night sometime.  Since my husband works an evening shift twice a week, I offered to “host” it at my house after my boys were asleep and asked what I could do to help.  She came up with a few ideas, and we decided on making a cute pendant necklace.  After I did some Pinterest research (my favorite!), I told her that I’d be happy to stop in and pick up the materials since I’d be near the craft store the next day.

I had my list of items and figured that I wouldn’t be very long, so my husband waited with the boys in the van while I ran in.  I ran in, took one look around, and was completely lost.  I started walking toward the jewelry section but didn’t find anything that I needed.  I sort of aimlessly walked the aisles, praying that the materials would start screaming my name so I could end this experience, before asking someone for help.  Unfortunately, they couldn’t find the things that I needed either, and I ended up leaving the store empty-handed.

It’s obviously not a situation I’d like to find myself in again anytime soon, but I had a great time at the craft night that evening (using the materials that my friend found when she went to the exact same craft store the next day…) and I really do like making things that I pin on Pinterest.  My frugal side also screams to me each time I purchase any sort of home décor and think that I’m sure I could create something instead of purchasing it.

In my quest to find the best monthly subscription boxes over the past several months, I came across the Whimseybox website.  One of their ads looked something like the following:

Say what??  This ad was made just for me!  I had to look into this monthly subscription a little further…

“Get started making again with our $15/month craft subscription box to the best in DIY and craft.  You will receive a new DIY craft project each month with the materials and instructions necessary. Follow our tips and techniques or make it your own way.”

I received my first Whimseybox last month, and I loved the project — DIY peppermint lip balm!!  This kit included beeswax, castor oil, peppermint essential oil, stirring sticks, a pipette, 3 tins, and an instructional card — along with a 5 x 7 art print and a reusable box.  Everything I needed was right in the box, and I didn’t have to travel to the craft store 20 minutes away to only come out empty-handed.  I was able to make up three of these lip balms one afternoon during our quiet/nap time, and I have them ready to deliver to three women I visit each month from our church.

This was a fun activity that made me feel crafty and not frustrated at all!  While it’s perfect for a novice crafter like myself, I’m sure that there are some ways to spiff up these lip balms for those crafters with more experience.  🙂

In addition to the monthly subscription Whimseybox, the website is just introducing their new Whimseybox SHOP that offers free shipping through the end of July!  You can purchase the same DIY Peppermint Lip Balm box that I received, and there are other craft kits and craft materials available in categories such as paper crafting, jewelry making, sewing, scrapbooking, home décor, and bath and body.
