What I Made on Summer Vacation

I've got some more fun things to share with you this month, but before moving on, I wanted to share the last few brand new Cousin Class-in-a-Box products and my little off-road designs!

I made these while on vacation last month. It was perfect timing to receive all four of the new kits so I could take them with me.

I have to put a shout out for the 3 in 1 tool that comes in each kit. When I first had a chance to use the tool last year, I pretty much used it just to try it out and liked it. This time around, I made sure to use only this tool while creating these projects.

I just realized how comfortable it is in my hand and how efficient it is to cut wire and go right to looping instead of putting down a cutting tool and picking up a round nose plier. Nice!

So, here are the Casual, Classic and Natural Class-in-a-Box kits.

I really loved opening all the packages and putting the beads from each kit together in one big baggie. A baggie made the most sense since I was sitting in a state park resort lounge area for a good bit of the time while other family members read books, puzzled or scrolled around on their Ipads. On the go arts and crafts...so fun!


I'm not sure I have a favorite, there was something in each kit that I really loved. From the bright silver and turquoise beads in the Casual kit to the sweet wooden flowers in the Narural kit.

I'd love to hear if you have seen these in your craft stores yet. By the way, between me and you, this is the time to use your 50% off coupon and that makes it an even more awesome value!
