2018 August Llamas Getting Ready For Take Off!

Kicking off August with our Hot Air Balloon Lollipop Llamas!


Our special crafting material this month was the Wikki Stix Wax Crafting sticks!

We used these Wikki Stix to decorate our Lollipop Llamas. 💜


Our Lollipop Llamas are missing one thing… their Lollipops!

We made some of our lollipops with Wikki Stix and some of our other lollipops with Model Magic!

This Lollipop looks yummy enough to eat!

Now that our lollipops are done, we can move onto the Llama’s scenery that they will be looking over as they are traveling in their hot air balloon.

The Lollipop Llamas are ready to fly over the hills and mountains… they just need their Hot Air Ballon!

Look at that Llama go!

Now all of our llamas are ready to go on an adventure! 😁


Thank you for joining us and our Lollipop Llama friends for a fun adventure. Don’t forget to join us for our September adventure. Here’s a hint for what you can expect… 🤖

We Craft Box Goes Fishing in July for Some Fun Crafts!


We Craft Box is going fishing in July with these special sparkle fish! Some of the special materials we used this month include sparkles, sequins, and coffee filters. All of these fun materials turned out to be a bright and fun craft for the kiddos to enjoy.

We started crafting our underwater world by making our sparkle fish.

Now that we have some sparkly fish friends to occupy our underwater world, we have to create some hidden treasure chests for the sparkly fish to protect.

Now that we have secret treasure chests for the sparkly fish to swim around, we need to create our underwater world for the fish to live in. After we finish the underwater world we will be able to watch our fish swim together in their new tank!

This is the clear outer layer of the tank. We added some fun plants and blue streaks that looks like water inside the tank.

This is the fish tank background we made so it would look like our sparkly fish are swimming under water.

We also colored and cut up some coffee filters so they would look like plants for the fish tank for our sparkly fish to swim through.

For the last part of our fishing journey, we go to put our sparkly fish on some string and hang them from the top of our We Craft Box so they could swim freely in their new underwater world.


Thank you for coming on this fishing journey with us!

Back to School!

It’s time, I can’t believe the summer has flown by so fast, and I can’t believe how big my boys are… slow. down. slow. down! I try to carry on the traditions my Mom established growing up, that, of course, has become a major thing for all parents. So I put together a back to school chalkboard for the obligatory first day of school photo.

This chalkboard is special. But really, I bought it at HomeGoods for $40, 3 years ago, and it has been used for multiple parties, baby showers, holidays, parties, weddings and both my kiddos weekly belly bump chalkboards.  I love this chalkboard!

I’ve used some fun googly eyes and apple die-cuts from Michaels. Have you ever just scanned their sale rack? These apples were inexpensive and made this project a breeze! I will admit I am also the victim of buying so many great crafting treasures and… adding them to by heap of “will one day be used”. I may just do one giant project and use them all!

I used glue dots to attach the googly eyes, and attached the apples to the chalkboard too. I played around with a few type blocks… and always have a handy wet paper towel to clean up or redo sections.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of this chalkboard – I may have to rebuild it soon (she’s spent a few nights outside and is a little warped). Maybe I’ll do a how to blog post about it so you all can have this fantastic board too! Are you interested in that? Please comment below:

About Us, and this box!

This is my very first post! It seemed best to kick things off by introducing myself and telling you about me, my family and why I’m writing to you all. Well, hello there!! I’m Betsy, a full-time working, thirty-something wife, creative, and mom of two wild boys, three fluffy dogs, one stinky cat, and a pot bellied pig… yes… a pig!

You see, I’m a creative and always have been, I blame my amazing mom for all these things. My mom is an incredibly talented and creative woman. She has been a source of inspiration, and one of my biggest cheerleaders. I’ve been fortunate in having a great childhood bursting with creativity because of my mom. We were always working on holiday projects, helping out with school plays, trips, and fundraiser props. As I grew up she encouraged me to pursue my passion of art, and attend art classes, and eventually attend one of the top art school in the US –Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.  I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and have been working professionally in the creative field in designing screen printed and decorated fashion apparel for the past 11 years.materials blog

Now, I am a mom of two wildly busy boys and trying to find ways to have quality time with them has been my challenge. Time is scarce between work, laundry feeding everyone, and taking care of the kids… there is little time to research plan shop for and prepare crafts… not to mention me leaving the craft store after spending a bundle and not having time to use have the stuff. Lately, I’ve been in the mindset of making my time together count. You’ve all heard it, “be present in the present”… Well, this is my combo platter solution of being present, making our time – quality time, and pulling in some of my favorite memories and creativity into the mix too.
