Wool Felted Scarf Kit

Click on images for a larger picture.

Felted Wool is all the rage right now and after creating our November Creativity Kit I know why!

I have put together a beautiful, super-soft, luxurious scarf kit like no other you will ever find. The kit comes with everything you need to make this one-of-a-kind, boutique-quality wool scarf that you can complete in a single evening!

I saw a similar scarf in a NYC boutique for $75.00!! Believe me...when you see, feel and wear this scarf you will understand why.

Our Creativity Kit include both Merino and Teucel wool that are hand-dyed on a family farm in New Hampshire. Merino wool provides an amazingly-soft sensation and Teucel wool has an elaborate series of curls that are visually stunning. The combination is both uptown fashion and downtown functional.

If you haven't tried one of our famous Creativity Kits, this is definitely the one to try! I work very hard to find unique and high quality supplies for our kits to inspire your creative side and to support other small businesses.

Reserve your Wool Scarf Kit today!
Makes an excellent gift for you or a loved one this holiday season. The kit ships November 10th - 15th.

Lavender Bath Salt Creativity Kit

We are getting ready to ship the October Creativity Kit!!! I love how it came together and it smells divine.

The kit has everything needed to make 3 small paint cans of lavender bath salts. The ingredients in the kit are all natural, perfect for that perfect warm bath. I know you are asking why 3 cans. We just wanted to make sure you had enough for yourself and enough to give to a friend or family member.

Haunted House

This past 10 days have really gotten away from me. I get ready to update the blog everyday and then my "to do" list grows and the blog gets shoved to the bottom of the list. I am sure you all know how that is.

We have been so busy getting the Scrapbook Society October kits out, putting the finishing touches on the October Creativity Kit, checking on all the items ordered for the November kits. You have no idea how many months we have to completely rework the kits due to items not arriving when they say they will. Of course if you are on the Design Team you know exactly what I am talking about. Each month our Design Team works under so such a short time frame and still manages to completely blow my mind. I love them all so much and would really be lost without them.

I did manage to sneak away this weekend after the soccer games and take my children to a haunted house. A little town near us has this amazing haunted setup that they have built over years. It isn't really a house but a several structures. My children would be much too frightened to go through it at night with everyone dressed in costumes, spooky noises, and monsters jumping out at them. So each year I take them through it during the day when no one is there just us.

I have a few photos of this amazing haunted house to share with you.

They have a full train engine that they have steam coming out of and sounds that it is moving. At night they have amazing lighting that really makes it all come alive. But this is alive enough for my children.

You walk through this part and into a room where they have fake blood and mannequins. Very scary!

Have a great day!!!
