LVL Up+ by Loot Crate April 2016

LVL Up is a monthly subscription catering to people looking for geek clothing and accessories.  They allow you to choose between four options, socks, t-shirts, wearables, and female accessories.  You can also select the wearable and sock bundle if you wanted more than just the one choice.  Plans start from $11.99USD and while shipping is included in the US to get things here you need additional shipping fees.  I have chosen the accessories option which sends out 1-2 items each month.  This month’s theme was Quest.

20160428_200706

Level Up ships in a bubble mailer with the logo on it.  I knew what was going to be inside because they had sent out emails reminding you to pick a size so the soft feel wasn’t a surprise.

20160428_200734

The info booklet is a little different this month.  Instead of a booklet it is a huge folded one.

20160428_200805

When you open it all up you get a large map of the fandoms of the theme.

20160428_200917

My accessory for the month is a pair of Exclusive Star Trek Leggings.  They show the Enterprise soaring across the galaxy.  These are the first pair of leggings I have ever owned.  I don’t feel that they are a flattering item on almost anyone but they will be fine for around the house or layering in winter.

Well I complained last month about getting a necklace three months in a row and now that  they have changed it up I’m still not happy.  The only positive for me is that  I love Star Trek.  This is the first month that I’ve received one of my fandoms.  There was no little extras this month. I’m having some buyers regret with this one.  It’s neat stuff but so far nothing that has wowed me.  You can visit their site by clicking here to explore all the options.

 

Super Geek Box April 2016

Super Geek Box is a monthly subscription that sends out Geek and Gamer gear.  You always get a shirt but everything else is up in the air.  You could get Funkos or Dorbz, keychains, posters, or stickers.  Every month has a theme that the items are based on so it changes up all the time.  Boxes start at $13.92 plus $13.00 shipping a month but go down with longer plans.  All plans automatically renew so you do need to be careful if you want to cancel.  I’ve resisted getting too deep into the geek boxes just because there are so many and trying to pick is pretty difficult.  All of them are really varied and from looking at past boxes I decided to give Super Geek Box a try.  This month’s theme is Destiny.

20160427_183524 20160427_183536

The box is easily identifiable.  Opening it up I could see a hat and not much more.

20160427_183752 20160427_183759

The info card opens up to show you all the fun things that are inside.

20160427_183549

Marvel Mystery 8-Bit Avengers Mini Bobblehead Blind Bag

There are 9 possible Avengers that can be found in the bag.  I’m opening it right now……..and I got Vision.  I have no clue who that is.  Of all the ones I could have  received I get the one I don’t know.  That’s par for the course I guess.

20160427_183646

SGB Ninja Squirtle Keychain

There were four possible options, giving you all of the Ninja Turtles, I got the orange one.  My keyring is filling up with geeky items but they do keep the kidlets amused in long waits.

20160427_183604

The One and Only One Size Fits Most Trainer SnapBack Hat

Pokeman trucker hat…..interesting.  I love hats but never wear them because my style preference is more suited to the Kentucky Derby or British weddings and that means no one will be seen in public with me.  This will be worn.

20160427_183740

SGB Exclusive Ultramus Prime Art Print

I haven’t seen anything Transformers related since I was 8 and they were on for the first time.  I give most of the posters I get in this box to Bug but we’ll have to see if she has any interest in this one.

20160427_183622

SGB Exclusive Light Force Lanyard

You could have got either a red or a blue lanyard.  I realise this might be horrifying to some people but I can’t stand Star Wars.  This could be just a neat striped lanyard so it will be used on my keycard for work.

20160427_183638

SGB Exclusive Megabots VS Terracons Decal Set

More Transformers, at least stickers are cool.

20160427_183709

SGB Exclusive “Gotta conquer ’em all” T-Shirt

This mash up shirt blends Star Wars and Pokemon.  Neither of those are huge favourites of mine (see above) but I think the shirt is fun.  While this is not the best shirt I’ve ever received from them, it’s still up there.

This month was okay for me. While none of the fandoms are my big favourites, the items are good.  That’s the big gamble with the geek boxes, if you get a theme for something you are not a fan of, the whole box can be a letdown.  Next month’s theme is Hero, and they are promising an “epic exclusive t-shirt” in it plus a Funko.

The Beaver Box Spring 2016

This is my fourth Beaver Box.  They are a quarterly Canadian women’s box that will include something fashion, food, beauty, and home, plus always a little extra!  They source as much as they can from their local area but do have items from all across Canada.  Boxes are $55.00 per quarter or you can get a yearly subscription for $200.00.  Let’s see what we got that is just for the Canadian woman.

20160422_174309

The box looks Springy when I opened it.  Pale pink tissue and tulips on the card.

20160422_174322

The back of the info card lets you know what goodies you are getting.  It also tells you a little about the them.

20160422_174333

Lots of interesting things hiding under the paper.  Not much I could identify right off the bat but that’s okay.

20160422_174616

Elle Jewels Bracelet-$23.95

I think this bracelet is very dainty and cute.  I have tiny wrists and this fits perfectly.  The little elephant makes it whimsical but because it is silver it goes with most of my current jewelry and it’s small enough to wear for work.

20160422_174459

Birch & Ink Heart Magnets-$3.00

I love these!  They are so simple but very pretty.  I can’t wait to get them on the fridge above the reach of the kidlets.

20160422_174518

Moon Tea Co. Sangria Iced Tea-$5.00

This is an Organic herbal blend of Green Darjeeling Tea, Hibiscus, Lemon Peel and Ginger.  They also include a muslin bag to brew it in.  You can drink it as is or you can add wine to make it special.

20160422_174426

Lemon Juicer-$2.00

This is a plastic juicer with both a top to grip the fruit and a bowl with a spout to catch the juice.  I don’t have a juicer so this is a pleasant surprise.

20160422_174722

Nectar Bombay Sunglasses-$20.00

These are actually kinda cool.  I would never have picked them out and yet I’m okay with them.  They are lightweight and polarized.  They have a huge selection on their site and this is the first time I’ve ever received a pair of shades in a box and I’m happy.

20160422_174347 20160422_174357

True Effects Hand & Skin Shield-$15.99 & ?

These are two versions of the same thing.  They are having a little competition in conjunction with Beaver Box to see which package and scent you prefer.  My choice is the one in the bottle but both make my hands feel nice.  This is a barrier cream so it protects your hands by creating an invisible glove.

This month is back to being good.  They covered all the categories and I like that the companies are Canadian and that all of these items are available to me, which isn’t always the case.  The box had a value of $85.93, assuming the two lotions are the same price. Canadian boxes are not too common so I’m liking this one for the variety provided.  If you want to check them out click here.

 

House Box April 2016

House Box is a Canadian bi-monthly subscription box that sends you 5 or more assorted home product samples.  Plans start at $21.95 but do go down with longer plans and shipping is $9.95.  Taxes are included in the pricing.  The site says you can review your products and shape future boxes but so far I can’t figure out how to make that happen.  The items included are Canadian companies too!  After you have tried them out you can purchase the full sized version from the website or they have links direct to the companies.  Let’s see what was inside this month.

20160420_174635 20160420_174642

They have a good shipping box and as I mentioned last time it’s quite small.  However they fill it up well and you can see the info card just on the top.

20160420_174650 20160420_174656

Here’s the whole info card.  It shows this month is all about Spring Cleaning.  The back tells you about the items included and gives the pricing.

20160420_174706

Here’s a shot of everything to be found under the papers and wrapping.

20160420_174904

Dizolve Eco-Strips Laundry Detergent-6 Strips $1.22

These laundry strips are made to make your laundry easier.  You tear a strip off the pad and toss it right into your machine.  They are phosphate-free, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic.  The whole strip will dissolve during the cycle, so there is nothing for you to dig out of your machine or load at the end.

20160420_174800

Laundry Tarts Sweet Spot Stain Remover-$6.66

I guess they feel the laundry is the place to be right now.  You can use this stick to get rid of new stains and it may even help lessen old ones.  It is made with natural ingredients and safe for sensitive skin.  I like that I can rub it on stains and then just toss it in the machine.

20160420_174818

JBK Pottery Pot MInder-$5.00

This little disk helps to prevent pots from boiling over.  You drop it in  and then as the water begins to boil it rattles on the bottom of the pot and reminds you that you’ve got something on the stove.  I had always wondered how these worked and now I know.

20160420_174717 20160420_174854

Tupperware

I love Tupperware but almost never have the real thing because my Hubby wrecks it.  This little container is perfect for taking salad dressing for my lunches.  They also included the latest magazine and you can place orders online through the representative listed.

20160420_174741

Dark Horse Farms 100% Natural Soap by Beelites-$1.40

This soap is so scented.  As soon as I took it out of the baggie it came in the whole room smells like tea.  I love getting these little soaps and my current sliver in the bathroom needs to be replaced and I think this will be just the thing.  This soap is chemical, preservative, harsh detergent, colourant, and GMO free.

20160420_174839

Yogi Tea-$0.34 x 4

These teas are made with organic ingredients.  They offer 19 different varieties and in my box I received Restful Sleep, Egyptian Licorice, Lemon Ginger, and Green Tea Kombucha.  The only one I won’t drink is the licorice one.  I can never have too much tea and thanks to boxes my stash is usually full.

I am very happy with this box.  This months has a value of $15.65, which I think is a little low. I know I didn’t include the Tupperware price but it’s not going to make a huge difference.  There was a mix of all sorts of items for the home and with them all being Canadian it’s a bunch of good finds.  I have been on a mission to find more Canadian boxes since the exchange rate is so crappy right now and I’m glad to have found this one.  I hope that the rest of the boxes from them are as good as this one.  If you want to sign up let me know and I can send you a link!

LaRitzy LaMini April 2016

LaRitzy is a monthly box of vegan beauty items.  They select surprise items and send them along to you to try.  They offer two box sizes, La Ritzy, which gives you 4-5 full and luxury sized items, and LaMini, which is 2-3 items.  Boxes start at $24.99 and $14.99 respectively, but they do give a discount on longer term plans.  Shipping is free for the US, $5.00 for Canada, and $10.00 Internationally.  I am not vegan but I was looking for a reasonably priced makeup box and this one fits that so the fact that they items are vegan doesn’t matter to me.  Let’s see what my first box brings.

20160418_142605

OMG!! How cute is the box???  That little pig just makes me smile.  Three of the sides let you know that it is from LaRitzy and that it’s vegan and cruelty-free.

20160418_142623

OPening the box I could see that there were three items in there.  They did not include an info card.

20160418_142636

There are two cards specific to items.  The first one gives you a discount code to Toogga and the other one tells you how to use their enclosed product.

20160418_142655

Leo & Goa Pearlies-$2.38

Okay….so I’ve only heard the horror stories that go with oil pulling and they make me sick to even think about trying it.  This sachet is filled with coconut oil and you put it in your mouth and swish it around for 5-15 minutes. After that you spit it out and brush as normal.   It is supposed to help whiten teeth and make your whole mouth cleaner by removing the bacteria.  I don’t know that I’ll be able to have warm oil in my mouth for any amount of time without gagging.  I guess I’ll try it out but I don’t have much hope.

20160418_142724

Lippy Girl Vegocentric Vegan Lipstick in Coral Me Maybe-$23.00

How great is this?  It is a Canadian company out of Vancouver!  This lipstick is a lighter coral shade and I like it.  I don’t normally wear coral but the last few I’ve received have worked really well for me.  All of their products are organic, vegan, bee-free, chemical-free, and gluten free.  Beyond all that, this one item more than covered the cost of the box.

20160418_142757

Toogga 100% Pure Toogga Desert Date Oil-$10.00

This is an oil moisturizer for hair, skin, and nails.  This oil is extracted from the Toogga nut and it has a faint nutty smell.  I was surprised at how fast it absorbed into my skin!  It does feel slightly greasy but no more that a regular lotion might.  It says it can reduce wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin.  It also can help heal scars and alleviating acne, sunburns and rashes.  I’m going to give this a good try and if I like it the coupon to get a discount is going to be used.

I’m very happy with my first box from LaRitzy.  Two of the items were full sized and the third I guess could count that way too.  I’m not too thrilled with the oil pulling but the other two products are great.  The value this month is $35.28, which is double the cost of the box.  I’m almost wishing I’d gone for the full size box now.

Miss Tutii TutiiBag April 2016

Miss Tutii is an Asian beauty subscription that offers a few different options.  You can choose from the TutiiBox, TutiiBag, or the TutiiMask.  Plans start at $12.00 and there is a shipping charge to Canada.  They ship out popular or trending items from Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.  Your package may include skincare, makeup, hair care , beauty tools, or body and you can expect 4-5 deluxe or full sized items.   The TutiiBag is just a smaller version of the TutiiBox so if you subscribed to both you will get duplicates.

20160420_174317

This month everything is enclosed in a satin bag.  I think it’s good that they are switching them up, keeps things interesting.

20160420_174339 20160420_174347

There is an info card included.  It tells you what you have received, the price and perhaps most importantly, the English directions for the items.  That is always something to remember if you go with an Asian box that the actual items don’t necessarily have direction you can read.

20160420_174330

Inner Kallia Special Care Modeling Pack-$5.00

This mask is for oily skin.  You mix the powder with water to make a rubbery paste that you apply.  It uses botanicals and clay to detoxify your skin, and then you peel it off.  The whole rubber part of it seems odd to me but it’s not the oddest thing I’ve received in a box so I’ll be using it.

20160420_174408

Shiseido Medicated Hand Cream-30g $7.00

This hand lotion says that it is high-potency.  I’m not sure what that means but I found it to be very light and that I needed more than I would regularly use to make my hands feel moisturised.  It has an almost watery texture and very little scent.  It definitely doesn’t leave you feeling greasy and will be used up quickly because of how much you need to use.

20160420_174518

Skinfood Black Bean Eyeliner in Black-$10.00

This is not a super dark liner but it does glide on smoothly.  It says that it is also moisturizing the eye area because of the bean extract in it.  I don’t know about that but I like that is is a soft black colour and the smudger on the other end is useful.

20160420_174425

Laneige Clear C Advanced Effector-15mL

This seems to be a type of toner.  It gives you antioxidants and helps to make your skin clear and radiant.  It smells nice and since you rarely get a toner in boxes I’m happy to give this a go.

20160420_174358

Skinfood Fresh Celery Cleansing Tissues-$4.00

Yay more cleansing wipes!!  These ones have celery extract to help refresh and clean your skin and remove makeup.  They say that they won;t leave you feeling sticky or have a residue once your done.

I’m still liking this bag! The items are useful and there is a good mix of products.  There is nothing in this one that I would want to swap so I’ll have to try that feature out later.  This month had a value of $26.00, plus the toner whose price I can’t work out. That is higher than last month. I like getting the Asian beauty products and it’s been a while since I got many so this subscription should be a fun one.

Topbox April 2016

Topbox is a Canadian beauty subscription that ships you 4 samples every month.  The shipping is free, which is nice, but there is tax based upon your province.  This still makes it one of the cheapest boxes out there at $12 per month.  Topbox normally comes is a cardboard container but you can chose to receive your products in a reusable organza bag for even less waste, which is my choice.  They also offer special boxes that you can put on your wish list and you may get them or you’ll get the regular box.  I had stopped getting this one for a while because I felt they were sending out too many of the same type of samples.  I am giving them a try again because I now get almost no makeup boxes anymore and since this one is Canadian and inexpensive it let’s me dabble with a small commitment.

20160420_174948

I always go for just the bag packaging because I have no use for the tube and just recycle it anyways so why bother.  The bags are good enough.

20160420_175154

They always include an info card that lets you know what you received, what to do with it or why it’s good.  They also tell you where to buy more and the full price.

20160420_175142

Ofra Cosmetics Lipliner in Wine-$17.25 Full Size

I don’t wear a lot of lip liner but this is a good colour for my normal lipstick choices.  I have received quite a few different products from this brand and I like them.  This will join my routine on days when I think I need a bit more sticking power for my lip colour.

20160420_175123

Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum-7mL $30.33

This eye cream provides hydration, firms and brightens, and decreases puffiness.  All of which I can use lately because the little one has not been sleeping well and the older one is sick, so my sleeping needs are not at the forefront of anyone’s plans.

20160420_175016

Orofluido Beauty Elixir-$17.81 Full Size

This is actually a hair product, suitable for all hair types, that is supposed to give you silkiness, lightness, and shine.  It uses three oils to leave a residue free finish while adding a soft vanilla scent.  I don’t care for vanilla scented perfumes and such but this one is so subtle that even I don’t mind it.

20160420_175054 (1)

Lise Watier Cosmetiques Inc. Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum-3mL $9.00

This serum says it will deliver  powerful dose of age reversing ingrediants.  It uses Labrador Tea extract and active cell infusion complex, whatever either of those are.  I have not bought a serum since I started getting boxes and they are one of the few things that, because they are small samples, I use up consistently.

20160420_175205

Philosophy Purity Facial Cleansing Cloths-$20.00 Full Size

So this month they had an offer that you could add a bonus item to your bag for $10.00.   I decided to go for it and this was what I got.  I have a bit of a surplus of facial wipes right now but I love this brand and never want to pay for it so these make me happy.  Totally worth my $10.00.

20160420_175214

Schick Hydro Silk Razor-$9.97

This was also in my bag so I’m not sure of it’s part of the bonus surprise or just a bonus item.  Either way it is useful and the included coupon helps out,.

This month’s box has a value of $104.36. Holy Crap!!  This month was awesome.  There were no duplicates and even with having to pay an extra $10.00 that’s way higher than the price.  I like the items I got this time and am happy with all of them. The good thing is that since they only do month to month subscriptions I can cancel this without any hassle if it gets really repetitive.  As I mentioned above I like that it’s a Canadian box and that it’s really reasonably priced but it is not always varied.   If you are interested in getting your own Topbox send me a message and I can give you a link or you can visit them here.

 

 

LookFantastic Beauty Box April 2016

Look Fantastic Beauty Box is a box from the UK and you will receive a minimum of six products.   Those products will be an assortment of skin, hair, cosmetic and body products.  There also are sometimes high value surprises added to a few boxes randomly.  They promise to have a much higher value than what you pay each month as well.  They have free worldwide delivery on the boxes or things you order from the website. Boxes are $28 a month but go down with 3,6 or 12 month subscriptions.  Shipping was pretty quick for overseas and I received tracking notices as well.  The stuff I’ve been getting in this box has been really nice.  This one was a find and I really enjoy it.

20160414_195334

There is a theme again this month as evidenced by the decorated box.  Included for the last few months is an edition of Elle UK.

20160414_195359

I hate these black squiggles.  They leave a coating of dust all over everything and just make a mess.  Beyond that, the samples look to be good sized.

20160414_195411

The mini mag included gives you a rundown of your products and tips on using them.  They also have plenty of other ideas inside to give you inspiration and information on other things they sell. The theme is Blooms and in honour of Earth Day everything in the box is natural, organic or eco to help you get in touch with Mother Nature.

20160414_195423

Rituals Miracle Hand Scrub-75mL $21.39

This is the Editor’s Pick of the month.  It smells so good!!!  This scrub has ginseng and ginkgo biloba to soften and exfoliate your hands.  It is a salt scrub so they do warn you to rinse and dry your hands completely so avoid chapping your skin.  I really can’t get over how wonderful this smells. I want to wear it as a perfume.

20160414_195433

Bloom And Blossom Bath And Shower Gel-50mL $7.13

This shower gel is free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.  It is not as fabulous scented as the scrub was but I don’t know that anything else today can top that.  It mentions that it is safe to use during pregnancy and motherhood because it is natural.

20160414_195507

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask-29mL $4.45

This deep conditioning mask is infused with all sorts of oils and vitamins.  It’s cruelty free, and contains no silicone, synthetic fragrance, parabens, or phthalates.  It promises to give you healthy looking hair, with shine, elasticity, and strength.  Can’t complain about any of that.

20160414_195615

Elemis British Botanical Hand And Nail Butter-20mL $6.70

You can really smell the lavender in this cream.  It has a few different essential oils to both calm you and promote happiness and well being.  It does not leave you greasy at all and I would very much buy more of this!  It’s fantastic and not floral at all.

20160414_195452

Tanworx Tan Maintainer-60mL $10.42

I’ve said it before and I;m saying it again…..the British must have a thing with tanning.  I get a tan product every couple of boxes from them and since I only get a tan if the sun hits me I have to wait a few more months to have anything to maintain.  They actually say this makes a great base for fake tanning as it leaves your skin smooth and silky while holding in moisture.  It has carrot, coconut, and sunflower oils and smells like a good moisturiser that I want to just use.

20160414_195443

Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish-50mL $11.16

Oh another scrub.  This one stinks.  Literally not figuratively.  That’s the problem I have with so many natural products.  The stuff that stops them from being natural is the stuff that makes them smell pretty and I would rather have smell over healthy.  This one is for your whole body and uses ground walnut to do the exfoliating.  It has blackberry leaf which it says will increase collagen and cell renewal.  They suggest using in the tub to get the best results.

There is a bonus item this month that I swear I took a picture of but now no longer exists and since in the intervening time I dropped my phone and it died and I had to get a new one I can’t even get that picture back.  There is a vial of My Vitamins Lemon Flavour Performance Effervescent.  It contains 20 tablets that You drop, one per day, into a glass of water and drink up.  It says they are a food supplement and contain caffeine plus Vitamin B1, B2, B6, and green tea extract.  I’ve been drinking a ton of water lately so anything to make it taste like not water is a great thing.

 

This month had a value of $81.25 including $20 for the tablets, plus the magazine.  This month’s mix was great. The best part about LookFantastic  is that they have sales all the time and free worldwide shipping so if you want more of anything or find other things on their site it’s simple to get.  I can’t wait to see what fun they send next month and have yet to be disappointed with what I find in here.

Paper & Pen April 2016

Paper & Pen is a monthly subscription box that promises to send out 3-4 paper goods and supplies each month.  They pick items from around the globe and send those unique items to you.  Boxes start at $20 a month but go down with longer plans.  Shockingly for me, shipping is free!  Let’s see what they sent out!

20160415_131936

This subscription ships in a bubble mailer.  Inside of that is this nicely wrapped package.

20160415_131952

Oooooo…….so graphic and colourful this month.  I’m excited to see what all this stuff is.

20160415_132043

Dessi Designs Triangle Print Notebook-$4.60

The only thing that would make getting a new notebook better is if this was lined. This bold print is very fun and I can’t wait to use it.  My co-workers are used to my odd notebooks and I just freaking love getting more of them!!

20160415_132024

Check-it Vivid Icon Adhesive Flags-?

So I was able to find these on a website, however Google Translate let me down and didn’t translate the price so I can’t do a conversion because I have no idea what currency they were in.  Moving on…..I love these!!!!!!  There are few things in the world I like more that sticky notes and these bright flags with their cute little pictures on the side are a great addition to my collection.

20160415_132034

Beetle Ink Co. Hand Drawn Succulent Stickers-$7.89

These hand drawn stickers are from an Etsy shop and this is the House Plant Sticker pack.  These are super fun and I hope the people who I will send them to will enjoy them as much as I do.

20160415_132015

Stripe and Polka Dot Mechanical Pencils-$1.00 each

So lately I’ve rediscovered the joy of writing with a pencil.  There is just something so fluid and easy about writing with them and if I can keep these out of the hands of the girls they will join my large writing utensil assortment.

I’m really impressed with this box.  There is not a ton of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info.  The value for this month was $14.49 plus the sticky notes.  That is a little low I feel but I’m hoping this month was just an anomoly.  I like that some of the products are from smaller companies and Etsy companies.  It shows that they really do search out interesting items instead of just buying lots off Amazon.

Rag Tag Box April 2016

Rag Tag Box is a monthly craft and ephemera box.  They include all sorts of things and a cross stitch project each month based on a theme that could be fun, scary, sci-fi, or movie related.  They offer a few different options including paper crafts, stitchy mini, or full size and prices start at  $15.00.  They also have a shop online where you can buy projects or downloadable projects.  I went for the full sized box.  The theme for April is Badass Unicorns.   I received an email from them saying that they will be discontinuing the full size box but you can still get the Stitchy Box or a digital download of a pattern each month.  That makes me a bit sad because I have found this box to be fun but at least the site is not closing totally.

The standard pizza box was delivered this month and contained such bright yellow paper!

Inside of that was the great collection of stuff I was waiting for.  I love opening this box.

They included a code for 15% any purchase in their shop and a bookmark that gives you some shop details on the back.

So these might just be the best stickers ever!   The show a unicorn looking pretty badass doing a variety of things.  At least one of these is going to go to my co-worker because it’s just so her.  Did I mention how sad I was that this box was going away????

You can’t go wrong with a roll of washi. This one ig lime green and while you can’t really see it in the picture has chevrons on it.  I don’t have a washi obsession but I do have one bag full of rolls that covers me in pretty much any situation I would need it for.

The next treasure out was a colouring book and 2 multi-colour pencil crayons.  The images in the book are the same as the stickers, just blank.  I only have a few adult colouring books so I’m happy to add to my stash.  Maybe I could take these to work and when it’s slow make masterpieces??  I have received one of these pencils before from them but since this is the last month for this type of box I can’t blame them for using up stuff they might have had on hand.

There is a bunch of assorted  things in here too.  Paperclip book mark, little bag, gift tag, pencil that says Be Fabulous, jumbo paper straw, and a length of craft twine.

This blank card is beautiful.  One can never really have too many blank cards.  So useful to have around.

As we keep digging into the box we find another paperclip bookmark, a large paper bag, a polka dot snack cup, and a paper doily.

These two pieces of cardstock are printed on both sides.  Not sure what I’ll put them to use in but I know they will come in handy someday.

The last bit of stuff before the kit is a sheet of stickers to celebrate birthdays and a small toothpick flag.

So here is the whole reason I get this box.  Can I just say that with this being my last box from them as well I couldn’t have gone out on a better choice.  They give you everything you need to do this up minus scissors and skill.  Thankfully I have both of those so no problems there!  I’ve managed to finish a few of the other ones I’ve received and I can tell you there is plenty of thread to finish them.  This is one of the larger ones they’ve sent out and I can’t wait to hang this up.

There is no way I could value this box but I do love it!  I had been looking for something crafty for myself since Embellished Boxes seem to have imploded and this is it.  If you are thinking this may be something you’d like next month’s theme is Alien Antics.  You can still get the kits sent to you it’s just the other fun stuff in the box that is no longer offered.
