Hello, my buck list friends! I buy so many craft kits and can’t keep up with all of them. However I recently completed two of them. One was a kit where you paint your own wooden magnets the other one was a tiny tea set that you could paint. I love doing craft kits where you can paint an object without having to build or make anything first. Of course there’s nothing wrong with building or making something it can be a lot of fun. I just like to dive right into the painting part. The wooden magnets were all sea animals. It was fun to paint the smiling sea creatures and I really like the way they turned out. I got this craft kit at Savers and I’m very happy that I did. The next craft kit I got at a local toy store. I remember getting a craft kit similar to this when I was younger but that one was a larger tea set. This one was so tiny and cute. I decided to paint smiley faces on the tea set along with some dots. I like mixing colors when. I paint and I thinks it makes things look really cool. I wonder what arts and craft kit I will do next ?
Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently did a really cool art kit. I love Breyer horses and when I saw this art kit I knew I would enjoy it. This craft kit is a simple painting art kit. I’ve done other kits similar to this one. However I liked that this kit had bigger paint containers then other kits I’ve used. It is also worth noting that the horse figure and the paint in this kit seemed to be high quality. It’s no surprise but I enjoyed this craft kit and I love the horse figure I painted.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Today I decorated a Christmas ornament. I got the main part of the ornament from the Dollar tree I filled the ornament with pom poms that also came from the Dollar Tree. After I put the pom poms in the ornament I knew it needed a little something else. I found some glitter glue in another Christmas ornament kit and I used that to decorate the outside of the clear plastic ornament. I’m happy with the way this project turned out but it is still drying at the moment. Have you ever done any DIY Christmas ornaments?
Hello, my bucket list friends! Today I did one of my favorite crafts from childhood paper snowflakes! I made two snowflakes and they are very different from each other just like real snowflakes. Did you ever make paper snow flakes as a kid ?
Hello, my bucket list friends! When I was in Target I got this fox ornament craft kit. It’s one of those simple painting craft kit that comes with a paint brush and a few colors of paint. I really liked the fox ornament and I had a fun time painting it! Have you ever painted an ornament?
Hello, my bucket list friends ! As I write this I’m standing in a long line to get into whole foods. So I thought now would be a good time to catch up on my blogmas posts. I was looking through my craft kits and I found this super cute wooden gingerbread house craft kit. This kit included wooden gingerbread people in addition to the house. It also came with markers to color the wooden pieces. The small markers that came with this kit worked surprisingly well. They didn’t run out of color as used them to decorate the wooden pieces. I enjoyed doing this craft kit and I’m happy with they way it looks. Have you ever done a craft kit similar to this one ?
Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s hard to believe that’s it’s November already! Before we get much further into November let’s take a look back at the good things October had in store!
Going to the pumpkin patch – I had a fun time picking out the perfect pumpkins with my mom. ( You can read about it HERE)
Getting my nails done – I had a great time getting my nails done with my friend. I loved the way they looked! ( You can read about it HERE)
Arts and crafts! I always love arts and crafts but this month I had a lot of fun decorating my pumpkins and trying out mess free glitter art! ( You can read about it HERE and HERE)
Dressing up as a unicorn for Halloween ! – On Halloween I worked most of the day but I was able to dress up. I loved getting to wear something different to work. It was fun to wear a unicorn horn all day !
Trying a new Kit Kat flavor – I love trying new candy flavors! It was fun to review this interesting flavor of Kit Kat! ( You can read about it HERE)
Hello, my bucket list friends! Monday I did one of my favorite and much needed stress relieving activities art! I decided to look through a bunch of my art and craft kits and chose one. I decided to do a craft kit that was different for the ones I useally do. This Melissa and Doug craft kit said that it made mess free glitter art. If you are a fan of arts and crafts you know that mess free and glitter are two things that normally don’t go together. I was curious to see how this would work out. It took me a little while to figure out how this kit worked but once I did it was a lot of fun! The kit came with two pictures that you decorated the glitter sheets that came with the kit. The pictures had stickers that you removed then you pressed the glitter sheets on to sticky part that the sticker covered. A few times I accidentally used the wrong side of the glitter sheets but luckily I was able to recover from that mistake. In my opinion the kit really lived up to it’s promise of mess free glitter art. I was really happy with the way the art turned out and now that I know how to use these kits I would love to do more in the future!
Hello, my bucket list friends! I recently completed a fun craft kit. This kit came from CVS. It was a pretty simple kit where you painted a ceramic bat but the bat is also a magnet! This kit came with three colors of paint but I also used other paints that I had to paint the bat. This was a very quick art project but it was also a lot of fun. Also I just have to say that the bat is so cute! I would love to do more magnet kits like this.
Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for this month’s book club discussion! I had a fun time reading this book. Our book for this month was Marshmallow Mystery by Helen Perelman. As always just one more thing before we dive into our discussion. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s dive into our discussion!
My favorite part of the book – I was so happy when the candy fairies found Mallow their owl friend. Mallow had some important information that helped the fairies solve the mystery.
My least favorite part of the book- I felt really bad for the fairies especially Raina when they realized that their fairy code book was missing. It’s never a good feeling when you lose something important.
Before we get into this month’s activities. I just have to say that this was a really fun book to read! I have another Candy Fairies book and I hope to read it soon.
Art activities- This month I did two different art projects to go along with this book. For the first project I made a foam gingerbread house from a kit that I got at a thrift store. I had a fun time decorating the house. I think the candy fairies would be right at home in this house.
For my second art activity I did something very simple but also very fun ! I drew colorful and fun candy picture! I had a good time drawing lollypops and gumdrops!
Thank you for reading this month’s book club discussion! Happy reading.
