Art Bento Box – Unboxing Video

Hi lovelies! I have something fun to share with you today. Yesterday I received a box of goodies from Art Bento Box and decided to film an unboxing video to share with you today. It’s the first that I’ve shared, so please excuse my nervousness 🙂

Side Note: I’m not affiliated with Art Bento Box in any way. I received this box as a promotional offer to test out their kit in exchange for getting creative with the contents.

Art Bento Box has a Kickstarter Campaign that they’re kicking off towards the end of the month, but you can go to their website for more info and to receive updates.

Before we get into the unboxing video, I thought you might like to see what I created with some of the contents.


You know I love my art tags, so that’s the first thing that I created. Using the paint and stencil included in the kit, I painted my own washi tape, using the orange tape, also included. I used some of the paper to add that gorgeous flower and the white Prisma Pencil for some mark making.

From my own stash I added a bit of ribbon, some Stabilo black pencil to create some depth and a stamped sentiment using a Donna Downey stamp from the Unity Stamp Co.

And now for the Unboxing…

Thanks for watching and exploring the Art Bento Box right along with me.



Mixed Media Pocket Letter

Happy hump day! If you read my blog, then you already know about my latest obsession with Pocket Letters and what a Pocket Letter is.

A couple of weeks ago, a wonderful lady on the Pocket Letter Pals website sent me a message to inquire about a swap. Her name in Anne May and she lives in Norway.

We agreed on swapping mixed media style pocket letters, squared away a few other details and set a date.

Here is the pocket letter that I made for her.

I created it using one of my gelli prints, some of my own hand carved stamps, misc bits and pieces from my stash and one of my favorite flower stamps from Paperbag Studios.

I then set about to fill the pockets, front and back, with goodies like stickers, die cuts, tags, washi tape and some tea.

It was a fun PL to create and I’m happy to have had an  opportunity to make a new art friend so many miles away.

And now for the A-mazing PL that I received from Anne May!

Isn’t it fantastic? It’s so vibrant and detailed… and those stamps… Oh my! She filled the pockets with wonderful goodies, a lovely letter and even some treats that I can’t wait to try.

You can see more of what she’s up to on her blog, HERE.

From my heart to yours, Anne May… Thank you.

Thank you all for reading. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.
