A trip to the Dollar Tree and a art project

Hello, my bucket list friends and happy Sunday. Yesterday I did some shopping at the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see what items they had for Christmas. At the location I went to there were still many boxes of Christmas items that they had not opened yet. However there were some items out and ready ready to be bought. I got a snowman ornament, a light up Christmas tree, stickers and a wooden Christmas tree in the Christmas section. Some of the other items I picked up on this trip are play- doh, a squishy toy and a wooden word to paint. Today was the day I decided to paint the wooden Word. Painting is a very relaxing activity and I’m glad I did it today. I used three different colors to paint the word hello. I love Painting dots when I paint so I did that on this piece. I love the way it turned out and I want to paint the back when the paint dries.

Barbie Jewelry box art kit

Hello,my bucket list friends! In my last blog post I mentioned that I got a Barbie jewelry box kit from the 90s at savers. It’s a really unique item and I can’t wait to tell you more about it. When I saw the box sitting on the shelf I was so excited about it! I could tell that the box had been opened before but I still wanted to get this kit. When I opened the kit I saw that it had already been painted. However since the paint was pretty light I knew that I could just paint over it. Most of the paint that came with the kit was used up so I decided to use some of the paint that I had in my room. It turned out pretty great. The kit did come with beads but I don’t think most of the beads that were in the kit were the ones that originally came with the kit. The beads that were in the kit were pretty cool so I was not disappointed. This craft kit was really unique I haven’t seen many that are like it. There are lot of paint your own box kits but haven’t seen any that are similar to this one that I can remember. It was a lot of fun to do a craft kit from the ’90s and it was a great bonus that it was also a Barbie craft kit. Have you found any craft kits from the ’90s while you’ve been thrifting?

Wooden bird house picture painting

Hello, my bucket list friends. I recently completed another craft kit that I had in my room. It was a very cute wooden picture of a bird house with birds that you paint. With out further delay let’s dive on in !

 

 

Wooden bird house picture painting

I was looking at my arts and craft supplies when I found this kit that I got from the Dollar Tree. One thing I loved about it was that the picture of the birds and the bird house was printed on wood and not paper. This kit came with the wooden picture , paints, a paint brush and a string to hang up your picture with. When I was painting I didn’t really care that much that the colors were mixing. I enjoying  painting so much that sometimes I don’t focus on the results. Instead of painting the whole bird house I decided to cover it with dots! I like making dots when I paint. When I was done painting I hung the picture up in my room. I did enjoy this craft kit and I would like to do more kits like this.

Sun catcher crazy !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I realize recently. I had a lot of sun catcher art kits in my room that I had not opened yet. I deiced to gather them all up and paint them. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go !

 

 

 

Sun catcher crazy !

The first step to completing this project was to decide which sun catcher to paint first. I deiced to start by painting a frog sun catcher that I got at Walgreens. I really liked the way this sun catcher turned out . I used so many different paint sets that came with all of the kits but I’m pretty sure the paint quality of the first kit was one of the best. Some of the kits had been sitting in my room for a while and they did not have the best paint quality. One of the kits had sat on my windowsill for so long that the paint just didn’t look right at all so I didn’t even open it . I used paint from other kits to paint that sun catcher. I had a fun time painting all of the sun catchers. I’m so glad I deiced to paint the sun catchers it was a good project that provided me with both relaxation and entertainment.

creativity to the rescue !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m pretty sure we all know that life can throw a lot of stress our way sometimes. There are many different ways of coping with stress such as exercising , reading , playing music and much more! For me being creative is what helps me cope with stress. On Monday I went to Petroglyph a ceramic studio. I painted an Elephant and an egg , my mom painted a beautiful sunflower plate. I love being able to sit down and focus on making art. I love the way I painted my elephant and egg ! I also have my bedroom pretty well stocked with craft kits. I recently did a butterfly mosaic  craft kit that I got at the Good Will. This kit came with a cut out of a butterfly and foam pieces to to decorate the butter fly with. Originally the foam pieces were sticky and simply stuck to the butterfly  but the kit was older and the adhesive had dried.  I used glue to stick the pieces on. I enjoyed putting the foam pieces on the butterfly. It would be fun to do another kit like this.

Valentine’s day arts and crafts

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m back at it with the craft kits . This time I did Valentine’s day craft kits in celebration of the holiday ! Here we go!

 

Valentine’s day arts and crafts

Valentine’s day necklace kit – I got this kit at Michael’s and  I thought that it was pretty unique! It came with fun Valentine’s day beads, string and two pieces of plastic to use as a clasp for the necklace. I had a fun time putting the beads on the string .I couldn’t figure out how to get the clasp to work correctly so I just tied the necklace the old fashioned way. It worked great and it was pretty easy to slip it on over my head . I would recommend this craft kit.

Cat pillow – At Target I got very simple but very cute craft kit . It came with a very cute cat pillow and some markers. I don’t think that the markers were fabric markers but they worked really well. It was easy ,fun and relaxing to color the little cat. I hope I get to do more craft kits like this !

Ceramic LOVE painting – This kit was a simple painting kit. It came with a ceramic love sculpture ,a paint brush and three colors of paint. I liked the way the letters popped out from the background of the sculpture. I really enjoyed painting this sculpture and I was happy with the way it turned out.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Arts and crafts kit have become one of my favorite hobbies and I recently finished doing another one . I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!

 

Bobble Head Craft Kit

I was looking through my arts and craft supplies to find a project to complete. I had forgotten  about this very cute dog and cat bobble head kit that I had gotten at a local party supply store. I was excited when I saw it and I knew that it was just the project I was looking for. The kit had two bobble heads and few items to decorate them with including a marker ,paint and bows! I started decorating the cat first I glued a cute pink pink bow on the cat’s head and then I painted dot’s on her body. For the dog I glued a rose on her head and I covered her with paint . I used the yellow and orange paint on both of the bobble heads.  I really liked they way both of them turned out! They are super cute ! I would love to do another kit like this sometime.
