If your family has been struggling to find fun activities to do with all the recent lockdowns and restrictions, then here's a story that will resonate with you...
Selina has four kids, aged 15,13, 11 and 9.
For Selina, the weekends are usually spent cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping and meal prepping for her busy family so that they can thrive during those hectic weekdays ahead.
Their Saturday nights come too quickly, but she does her best to schedule those evenings for quality time with her beautiful family.
What do they usually do?
Watch movies and eat buckets of popcorn.
There's just one problem...
More often than she would like to admit, her kids have been watching Youtube and Netflix for the better half of the day already, which means that by the time the movie night comes along - they're bored of her movie night idea.
So what do they do instead?
Here's an idea... Family Crafts!
For a limited time, get 15% off a family pack of sign craft kits to do on a slow weekend evening with your family. Choose any stencil designs from our website for your craft kits so that each person can do something unique to their personality.
Choose any stencils from our current catalog and email us after you have placed your order to let us know which ones you would like.
A passion project is something that, when you're doing it, makes time disappear. It is something that puts your mind at ease and calms you. It's not a school project or something someone else told you to do. A passion project is 100% for you, and you're entirely in charge of the deadlines, time spent on it, and the finished product.
A great question to ask if you haven't started a passion project lately is 'how do I find a new passion project?' Great question! Here's what I do...
1. Make a list of everything you love and enjoy doing. It can be as simple as "I love books, movies, crafting (my personal favorite), cooking, baking, singing, pottery, organizing (yes, some people do like this), decorating, dancing, writing" etc.
2. From that list, circle your top three.
3. From that list, decide which passion you would like to work on first. The idea is to eventually have a passion project for all three, but let's first start with one!
4. Design your passion project in steps, starting with research and planning:
Research: Pinterest is a great resource for getting inspired and I highly recommend it! Simply search whatever your passion is, and start a board of pins specifically with those posts that you like best.
Planning: Make sure to plan at least a few hours each week on your new passion project, so you don't get distracted from it. Remind yourself that your passions matter and that if you're happier then you can treat others around you better - making them happier too!
5. Get started!
Please send us pictures of your most recent passion project. Have a wonderful day!

Like many eastern European descendants in Canada, my husband's family are all from Ukraine.
This crisis has been heartbreaking to watch from afar and is really hitting home for all of us but it's so hard to know how to help from here in Canada...
A few weeks ago I saw a quote from the late Mr. Rogers (he had a pretty insightful mamma!)
If you're like me and you want to help somehow, let's make this month about crafting in support for Ukraine.
So to help, we've decided to dedicate 10% of our March proceeds this month to UNICEF's children's aid in Ukraine.
Here's a clip from their website...
"Escalating conflict in Ukraine poses an immediate and growing threat to the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children. Humanitarian needs are multiplying – and spreading by the hour. Children have been killed. Children have been wounded. They are being profoundly traumatized by the violence all around them. Hundreds of thousands of people are on the move, and family members are becoming separated from their loved ones.
We must protect all children in Ukraine. Now. They need peace.
The past eight years of conflict in eastern Ukraine have inflicted profound and lasting damage to children on both sides of the line of contact. Now, the suffering extends across the country. Hundreds of thousands are without safe water or electricity due to damage to infrastructure. UNICEF is working to scale up humanitarian delivery in the east and expanding across the country as needed.
If you're interested in supporting, here's a few crafts that we think you might want to do this month for your craft-for-a-cause project...
Or the sunflower is the symbol of solidarity and national flower in Ukraine...
If you would like to craft for a cause with us this month - shop here.
(PS. if you're interested in seeing an ongoing craft-for-a-cause subscription box service from us, please join the waitlist here.)
Thank you for your support!
