I almost titled this blog post, "The Crafter's Box, An Obsession" because I'm seriously so obsessed with this company it isn't even funny. So far, I've been lucky enough to receive two of their amazing kits, and I just can't say enough good things. I love them both so much!!
The first kit they sent me was this absolutely gorgeous Rya Wall Weaving kit. My jaw fell to the floor when I opened this package. I have never seen such quality and thought go into a kit before. This is the fanciest, softest, most gorgeous yarn I've ever been so lucky to work with. The design is just stunning.
The kit came with a lap size loom, all the yarn you see in these photo, a shuttle to easily and quickly weave, and a sword. On top of all that awesomeness, The Crafter's Box has a 20 minute long video made by the ever so lovely Maryanne Moodie where she walks you through the exact steps to make this weaving from beginning to end.
The second kit I've received from The Crafter's Box is this beautiful Brush Pen Lettering set which came with beautiful pens, a book covering all the different lettering techniques, plenty of pages of practice paper, and beautiful custom stationary and gold foil. The best part was, the video for this kit was nearly an hour long. The artist Shinah Chang walks you through her entire work book, nearly every single letter and brush stroke technique. Unbelievably helpful. I have always been interested in learning how to letter and this kit was so super helpful and fun!
The Crafter's Box is an amazing company that works with insanely talented handmade artists and they put together a new kit every single month. I am a huge believer of making time to make things, work with your hands and learn new skills, and this company is just absolutely wonderful for being able to do exactly that.
Since working with this company, I've sparked a new obsession, weaving. My mind is spinning and racing over all the design ideas and the whole process. Feels like painting with yarn. As much as I love crocheting, it's good and healthy to have another hobby to enjoy, and I love that weaving has coupled my love of yarn with a whole new technique.
I am just so incredibly grateful to The Crafter's Box for sending me these kits as they are the most wonderful gifts.

I should have a Modern Embroidery kit by the lovely Sarah K Benning on the way, and I'm so excited to get started! This feels like Christmas, receiving these gorgeous kits! I feel like it's seriously such a steal for the amount of material you get and the quality of each piece in the kit plus having the actual artist explain their entire process, just wow. This company and their work are amazing.
