Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow yesterday, on Groundhog Day. “More winter”, he said. “6 more weeks of dark days and cold nights. Deal with it!”… and crawled back into his hole. I feel that we have reached that point where winter seems to have dragged out for a lifetime, and we begin to get anxious for spring with every sunny day we are teased with. Last week, we here at CutRateCrafts saw the first sign of sunlight in about a month. It brightened my day, literally and figuratively. For this reason, let’s pretend that we do not have to wait for spring fever to kick in. CutRateCrafts has everything you need to get ready for warmer days ahead.
Let’s make a compromise. It’s still cold, the days are still short, and puzzles are still a great way to deal with cabin fever. This puzzle is pretty awesome for a few different reasons. One, you get to color your own pieces. Adult coloring books have become popular and really great for stress relief. Speaking of which, we have A LOT– find them here. Anyways, this Birds and Butterflies Puzzle will help take your mind off of the fact that you will still have to wait just a bit longer to enjoy spring, but while you’re cooped up, grab a puzzle and get cozy!
The smell of spring, ahh! The Smell of Spring Cross Stitch Kit does an amazing job of making you feel as if you could actually smell the flowers. A warm breeze blows through the window, and the floral aroma fills your home. You could start this project now and have it ready to display when a new season blows in. Cross stitch is a great craft that can be taken anywhere. Start while we still have 6 more weeks of winter, or bring it outside, relax on a bench, and get this pattern completed in no time.
Spring means picnics, but since we tend to eat more in the winter, let’s add these cupcake toppers to do both. These Food Picks can perk up desserts with ease. Have a bake sale coming up? Dinner party with friends? Add the final detail with a splash of pastel and get everyone looking forward to warmer days to come and the bright colors of spring! Baking cupcakes is relaxing, baking in general is relaxing. CRC has everything to make the perfect cupcake come to life. Batter Babies Cupcake Batter Separators allow you to put create double the fun by using two different flavors.Grab some pastel sprinkles, add those cake toppers- you’ve got yourself a party!
