WhimseyBox Review and Giveaway


               For those of you who may not know much about me, won't know that I am a huge fan of crafting! I learned from a young age how to sew by hand followed by crocheting and cross stitching. As I got older I started picking up different kinds of things from working with clay, to scrapbooking, to jewelry making, to making candles. I have just about done it all!
               When I realized that there was such a thing as a crafters subscription box I literally squealed with excitement. Believe me, it wasn't pretty. WhimseyBox is a monthly subscription service where they essentially send you a box full of the items you need to create something with instructions and it's up to you to make it your own or just enjoy it as is! 
        This month's WhimseyBox was a DIY peppermint beeswax lipgloss kit and I was over the moon! The kit literally came with everything you needed to create at least 3 tins of your own lipgloss with a little extra just in case.
         Now I am not a huge fan of peppermint outside of the holiday seasons so I decided to get a little creative with mine. I melted the wax and castor oil in the kit and added a little vanilla to one tin and peppermint to the other two tins in varying degrees of strength. 
         I couldn't just be okay with 3 plain clear lipglosses though! I had an unopened mineral eye shadow and popped a little pink into one of the tins before mixing it up and it gave a gorgeous colour in the tin and a hint of colour on the lips which is fantastic! It gives it just enough colour to be unique but not so crazy that anyone would shy away from it. 
         Everything about this kit was fantastic! I love the added touches of the stickers, the labels, and the little pins! I am a collector of these little tiny pins and they are just adorable! Everything was packed so nicely in the box and all of this together I couldn't believe that this subscription only costs $15 a month!
             This subscription service is a fantastic box for beginners who don't know where to start, or full time crafters who enjoying having a ready made kit sent to them as a surprise every month! Not only that but it would make a fantastic gift if you have someone in your family who loves to craft!

  13. I would love to see something teaching you how to make felted animals, or anything to do with quilting or any box that allowed me to make something for one of my sweet doggies.... Thanks for the chance to win....we think alike as I would have switched things up with the flavor and color as well as like you I don't care too much for peppermint. I have lots of flavoring stuff from cake decorating classes my step daughter and I took a couple years ago, I was thinking along about what flavors I would have tried....my step daughter says she would have put chocolate flavor in hers.....lol
