For The Makers

So last year for Christmas my boyfriend got me the best gift, a For The Makers subscriptions for 6 months worth of projects. Full disclosure, he did this because I told him to….BUT he also did it because he knew it was a gift that was going to last a long time, keep me preoccupied through the slushy winter, and satisfy my need for both pretty packages in the mail and constant crafting.

It’s getting down to the wire for shipping, so this is honestly the best last-minute gift you can give your special crafter. Here’s how it works: each month that you purchase you get a box filled with supplies for 4-6 projects delivered to your door. The projects range from jewelry to tea towels and the boxes always have a theme.

Check out December’s box:


Couture Sewing Set from Anthropologie

I was scrolling through the Gifts for Kids section on Anthropologie’s website (which should be called Pretty Toys for Grownups since everything in there is on my Xmas list) and I stumbled upon the very best gift for a budding seamstress or tailor: an adorably packaged Couture Sewing Set by French toy maker Moulin Roty.

~Add some pretty vintage fabric squares and this would be the most amazing present for some little one itching to sew.~

The color palette is perfection and the notions (scissors, buttons, thimble, tailor’s tape, etc.) are all top notch….I sure hope some little one opens this darling package up this Holiday Season and gets crafting.

We Love Citrus

I’ve always been a lover of teeny tiny craft stores that sell teeny tiny craft supplies. We Love Citrus is a freshly curated and consistently darling online craft shop who’s sparkly packaging accessories and confectionary embellishments win me over with every visit.

~I’m especially obsessed with those Gold Stork Scissors~

~I’m sure these will all go to good use in many future crafty endeavors~
