Artterro Eco-Ornament Kit Giveaway

While I try to do a bit of crafting throughout the year with the boys, I would have to say that November and December are our biggest crafting months. Maybe it’s the cooler weather that keeps us indoors more or maybe we just get excited about making gifts and surprises for others!

Artterro is one of my favorite craft supply stores because I know that everything is either handmade, 100% natural, eco-friendly, and made in the USA. Not only those awesome factors, but the fact that it is all beautiful!

And Artterro just keeps getting bigger and better!

They are famous for their eco-art kits. I love these because they come pre-packaged with the materials you need and instructions. Creative ideas are also included to get us started. Now, they sell supplies individually too! You can buy scissors, papers, crayons, markers, glue and so much more! ALL eco-friendly of course!

Isn’t this paper gorgeous?  100% recycled handmade paper is created with cotton fabric scraps!

I also received a package of washi tape for all kinds of projects. I’ve never used washi tape before and it was a bit harder then I expected! I would love to hear your project ideas on what you use it for.

Washi Tape

The eco-kit I received is the Collage Ornament Kit and is on sale for $18 right now! Comes with handmade paper-mache ornament shapes, ribbon, brushes, glaze, patterned decoupage papers, solid color tissue and ideas sheet.

Artterro Ornament Kit

I like this kit because even the almost-five year old can help. A little glue painted on and then strips or shapes of tissue paper laid on the ornament however you’d like. Afterwards you can coat with the glaze and decorate with ribbons or anything else you may have laying around.

Of course it will be exciting to hang them on the tree, but I think I’m even more stoked to add them to the top of gifts. A handmade goodie!

Baby it’s cold outside. I’m learning all about winter after being away from it for six years. There are a few things that make it bearable for me and one is hot tea in the afternoons. Make that Mighty Leaf Tea and I am all smiles.

Erin Condren Life Planner $50 Giveaway

My husband does not understand why a person like me who spends so much time on her computer and phone needs a new written planner every year. I try to explain to him that I like to know things at a glance on my desk AND I do enjoy writing, notekeeping, making lists all in one place.

Erin agrees with me, “Yes, some people thought I was nuts when I created the first edition of the Life planner in 2007. I consider myself quite tech savvy, but I still find that I am more organized and prepared when I create handwritten schedules, lists and goals in an old school planner.”

When you visit the Erin Condren site you will also understand what makes life planners SO fun!

First there are hundreds of options and everything is customizable!

Erin Condren Life Planner Sea Life

I picked Sea Life as my cover. It fits me right? I know there is one for you too! Sparkly, Quotes, maybe a photo on the cover? There is even specific planners for a Wedding or Teachers! They are ALL bright and full of gorgeous color.

When this arrived in the mail, my mouth dropped. It is the best quality planner I’ve ever seen with an INTERCHANGEABLE, laminated, heavy duty 10mil cover for protection from daily wear and super tough sturdy aluminum coil that will not bend & allows your planner to lay flat.

I seriously wanted to take a picture of every page for you.

Erin Condren Life Planner

You’ll find inspirational quotes throughout, LAMINATED tabs for extra durability, clear, snap-in page holder/ruler.

Here are the pages you’ll spend most of your time. Goals and to-do lists for every week and month, weekly spreads divided into morning, day & night, meal/exercise/lists/etc. section for highlighted daily notes & activities, and over 25 lined and designer blank pages for notes and sketches.

Erin Condren Life Planner

In the back you’ll find more surprises…

DOUBLE-sided “keep it together” folder to wrangle receipts, stamps, and other papers, 240 colorful stickers to highlight birthdays, special events and reminders, bound-in zip lock pocket with 12 gift labels and “let’s get together” cards, and perpetual calendar booklet for birthdays and anniversaries.

Erin Condren Life Planner
But wait! You can ADD photo stickers, custom event stickers, matching notepads, a pen holder (see I did on the side there!), marker set, designer sticker sheets, coil clips or even elastic bands to further customize your planner to be as YOU*nique as you are!
 
I promise it can not get any better!

Check out ErinCondren.com ~ you’ll be amazed at all your choices!
