Alrighty, guys! So, Annie's sent me a few kits for my kids and me to try out and I'm here to tell you all about them.
Now before we begin, I just want to mention that the only "deal" between Annie's and me (Kay Krochets) was that I post about them on my social media. But because we had so much fun with these and I was so impressed with how much thought was put into each one, I wanted to dedicate an entire blog post to them!

Why join a club?
Whether you want to learn a new craft or continue to broaden your skills in a craft you already know, it keeps that creative spark alive and brings so much joy! Plus, you don't have to leave the house so it's really convenient. (Not to mention, a subscription would be an incredible gift to a loved one. It would be something they could enjoy all year long!)
Is it worth the cost?
I'm not sure I'm allowed to really answer this since I received my kits for free, but I must say, if you have the extra money, then yes, I think it's worth it! And the great thing is, if you don't think it's worth it, there's no commitment. Simply unsubscribe. (There is no penalty. I asked!)
How much is it?
Kits are $15-$20 (+ shipping) each but the first one is 50% off (+ shipping)!
What kits can you choose from?
SO MANY! I'll list each craft below, as well as each kit that's available that pertains to that craft. (Click each link for more info and to order!)
QUILT & SEW
Now let's talk specifically about the kits my family received and made.
First up, we have the awesome (and probably my favorite) Young Woodworkers Club.
We received the Marshmallow Launcher kit and, guys, I truly can't say enough good things about it! The pre-drilled holes made it easy for Greyson (4) to hammer in the nails and the kit included everything we needed to make it. (Even a hammer?!) He absolutely loved working with "real" tools, "reading" the instructions, and actually building something he could play with.
As a parent, I loved the convenience of this kit because finding/buying plans, running to all of the stores for the supplies, and then cutting/drilling everything to size would've been such a pain!
Next up, we have the Creative Girls Club.
We received the Pineapple Frames and the Throw Kindness Around Like Glitter 3D picture frame (that I totally forgot to photograph the process of making). I really like this club because you receive 2 kits per month and both Olivia (3) and Greyson (4) really enjoyed making them.
As you have probably noticed, Annie's isn't stingy with what they provide! There was an abundance of paint, the tools provided really work (I'm referring to the pineapple stencils here. I had my doubts!), and the final product is something they'll be proud of and love!
No joke, when they finished, they were so excited about their new picture frames that they each stole photos off MY clip frame and proudly placed them on their dressers.
After that, we got busy making the Holiday Home Sign from Farmhouse Style Club.
Now, I'm going to be honest, farmhouse is not really my thing. My style is more Scandinavian so this specific craft didn't really coordinate well in my home but that doesn't mean we didn't enjoy making it or that YOU all don't love farmhouse decor!
One thing the minimalist in me loved about this specific craft is that it's something that can be up ALL year long! No need to add it to the already filled boxes of decorations in the attic.
As you can see, the whole family truly enjoyed making each one of these kits. So what are you waiting for? Scroll up, choose a kit, and get your craft on!
