The Latest at Craft Warehouse

Ahh it was so nice to be back here again! I've been telling my coworkers all about how awesome this store is and when the time to go to Idaho got close, I got really antsy to go here because I love it so much - its my #1 favorite craft store.

Walking in and to the right there was this awesome display set up, so pretty with lights and birds and birdhouses

It was a lot to take in

Ideas for a wedding reception

Their lights are so awesome

I love all the wood cut outs

Many colors of towels with ideas of what you can make

I love love the crayon art!

The tiny easels and canvas! I may or may not have gotten some for the next 
Pinterest party...

Not too big and not too small, letters to decorate

These cone ideas were cool and I loved the travel stuff , especially because they had some teardrop camper paper and

Minc machine on sale for only $99. I kinda want one...

I love these clear paint style containers in all different sizes

I was suddenly inspired to buy a wood burning kit. How cute is this?!

Ahh I had one of these when I was a kid, a regular size one. I remember using it a lot! I was tempted to get this one..maybe next time. 

Giant ampersand on my way out the door. 



So much fun even though Tony rushed me a little bit. Hehe.

All The Pretty Target Things

I was at Target about a week ago with my sister one evening, just killing some time before my husband got up for work and I found some favorites! Took pictures because it's cheaper than actually buying everything. Take a look and let me now what your favorites are at Target right now.


Instead of popping your phone into a bracket on the case, you just suction it to these suckers..hmm. Would you trust it?

I thought these glass knots were interesting..

 These remind me of summer!


An owl holder for my hand sanitizer. So me, love it!

Favorites from Target

Anyone who knows me knows I love birds. And the color teal. So, here are a few items I found and loved from Target last week.
 I dont really need this for work, or do I? I heart the one on the left even though it has the chevron pattern. I also heart the one on the right but the style of the bag on the left I like a bit better.

 Feather wall art. I just liked these so much!

 These drawers would be awesome in my craft room. Or bathroom. Or both?!

Rounded out the evening with some of my new favorite Hershey Kisses. I may or may not have bought 4 bags. But hey, my sister loves them too so I was totally planning to share! (and I did). 

What are some favorite items you have seen and loved from Target lately?

Send Me A Surprise Review

The day finally came when the order I placed on the Send Me A Surprise website was sitting on my doorstep when I came home from work. I ordered it about a month or so ago after seeing it on Facebook from a friend who posted about getting one.

Here's a little video of my unboxing:

There was lots of brown paper padding in the box with some informative words

This is what I got (as you could quickly see in the video above) 

- a sweet Dash Dock GPS holder from Scosche
 - Uniden ear buds in blue
- a cool stand for my ipad/phone or whatever electronic tablet I want
- Wireless Gear stylus that doubles as a pen

I'm pretty happy with what I got and am excited to see what I will get next month.

Check out the Send Me A Surprise Facebook page and if you decide to sign up, let them know that Stacie Skinner-Hoxsie sent you!

Craft Warehouse Round 2

When I was in Idaho last weekend I vowed to get to Craft Warehouse and Saturday night, we made it! Here are some pictures I took of the store and the cool treasures I found!

So much wood, cut and assembled, ready for projects!

I love the backdrop of lights behind the burlap

I love this display! Those 4 boxes on the shelf, you can make these! You can buy a whole book of the material with the different patterns and designs. Then you need this tool to make the boxes. I love that everything to make the project is available to buy right here in the display. If I saw just the book of material, or just the tool used to make these boxes, I would have no idea what to do.

Good prices and sales

Check out the cute Valentine stuff. Where in Utah do they sell the wood board with the 3 small hanging boards? I think what they made with it is adorable! 

And this! So badly I would love to make this, esp for the Pinterest party. I wonder if Craft Warehouse works with bloggers. Would have been so fun to make this at my party.

Tinting spray?! Like spray paint but for glass. I wanted to get all the colors and spray paint glass from the thrift store or something.  I guess this product is in Utah? I havent seen it yet. I just thought it was super cool.

Fun idea to do with the tint spray.

So we only spent around 30 minutes or so, maybe a bit longer, walking up and down many of the aisles, oohing and aahing over everything. I cant wait to go back again next time I am in Idaho. 

What is your favorite craft store where you live?
