This Month’s For the Makers collection was called “Soft Focus” and was all about dyeing things with kool-aid.
The four projects were a necklace, 3 string bracelets, an air plant holder (no plant) and 5 note cards.
Overall, I spent a few hours on the projects and made a small mess. I ended up making the bracelets more saturated with color because I’m not a huge fan of pastels, but they might have looked cuter in pastel.
I did end up buying an air plant from a local craft store and that is now hanging in my office.
Overall it was a pretty fun kit, but I’m unsure about the value. The supplies are all very cheap and none of the projects took all that much time. I still enjoy getting a craft box each month so I will continue with this subscription.
I got this quilted puffer vest from Banana Republic last weekend and the coordinating sweater on the same shopping trip. I had actually been looking for a puffer vest I saw in the H&M catalog, but the store I visited didn’t have it. When I saw this in Banana Republic I tried it on and knew it was a keeper. Everything in the store was 40% off and I had an additional $40 gift card so I got a great deal on it.
