Hi, Crafty Friends!

Quick post today to remind you (or let you know if you didn’t already) that today is Amazon Prime day! One day a year that Amazon rolls out black friday like deals which include many crafty items too! If you are not yet a prime member then I highly recommend it! My family has saved so much with Prime membership on Groceries, Household items, Digital PurchasesMajor purchases, and even Home Services.

Try Amazon Prime for 30 days, FREE!

If you are a Student (or have a student in your home) you can get a discount on your Prime membership and you get a 6 month free trial!, for more info click HERE.

Here are some of the deals I have found that I can personally recommend:

Amazon Echo : We have two of these (one upstairs and one down although you really only need one + A dot in any other room you would like) I love these and I have one in my craft room to listen to music with Amazon’s new Music service or ask questions …. admittedly most of the time it is “Alexa, how do you spell _____” LOL! The Echo is normally $179.99 but today it is $89.99

Echo Dot : great for rooms in your home if you already have your Echo! My husband loves to hook up all our lights to it. Remember the Clapper? LOL I am sure I dated myself but this is MUCH better than that LOL! Under $35 today only.

Kindle Paperwhite reader: I really love mine. I have an iPad so I didn’t think I would want one but this is so lightweight, portable, and I can read it in the sun or in bed when its dark, No glare, very easy on my eyes and you can adjust the font size several times to a font that is easy for you to read. There are several options available and all are $30 off today.

Or if you enjoy listening to books (maybe while you are crafting?) Try out Amazon’s Audible service

Amazon now has a Etsy like section where you can buy handcrafted items. It is still pretty new but I am really loving what I am seeing so far. Check it out HERE .

Okay, the most FUN family game ever….. Watch Ya Mouth! This game is a ton of laughs for all ages! $12.88 (normally $19.99)

Did you know that Amazon had prime sample boxes??? Me either! They DO and they are neat! Check them all out HERE!

You can get an extra $10 off your pantry box today. Shop the Pantry HERE.

This Office chair is great, we got one for my Son and he loves it.  We really do enjoy the Amazon basics line of products. I get the Amazon Basics Batteries all the time and save a ton.

****OK so here is the specific CRAFTY THINGS!!!*****
You can see the main Crafty Deal page *HERE*!

Cricut Explore Air 2: So this is something I do not own yet, Although its been on my wish list a while. I own a Silhouette Cameo and although I love it’s functionality I really hate its wireless capability. I was opposed to the Cricut for a long time but now that you don’t have to buy endless cartridges I am really really wanting this pretty aqua machine! My friends who own it LOVE theirs and I am very jelly! It’s only $199 today! *This deal ended but there is another Cricut machine on sale, see the end of this list*

WRMK Heatwave Tool Starter Kit: I love this for adding little touches of shine! $13.81

BEE watercolor paper: This paper is really good quality, I was surprised when I tried it. It is not as good as Arches but better than Canson XL and today it’s under $10 which makes it pretty affordable!

Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: These are a FANTASTIC water based marker and very popular right now. I love mine, I started with a small set and quickly upgraded. So… the 80 set is limited and not too many left when I checked but it is only $104 which is a steal! I LOVE these markers and Amazon always seems to have the best prices. There is also other sets at great prices…. The 36 count set, 48 count set, and set of 60

Artbin Super Satchel storage $19.76 (reg $30.99) This is a great storage tote for all sorts of crafty things (and a pretty color too)

Thin Profile Light Pad $31.99 (I bought one very similar for over $50) I really get a ton of use from this light pad. I am so glad I don’t have to deal with that bulky light box anymore.

Silhouette Portrait Craft Bundle $115.50 (Reg 199.99) I LOVE my Cameo but if I had to buy one all over again I would get this smaller sleek-looking machine. I love that you can do so much with it and cut out any font on your computer. Personally I think this is a must have for any paper crafter.

500 count Velcro Dots (great for boxes, gift packaging, organization, and 3D projects).. you’ll never need to buy any again LOL! $11.19 (Reg 19.99)

Bowdabra Bow Maker: I don’t have a sale price on this yet as it is an upcoming deal but this is a great tool! I own the mini and love it!

Colored Pencil Storage: $22.99 (Reg 25.99 and I have seen similar for up to $75.00) Holds up to 150 pencils!

Brother XM1010 10 stitches and Auto Buttonhole Sewing Machine: Upcoming deal mid morning. Reg is $101.99. I am watching this one closely for my daughter who is just getting into sewing. Brother Machines have always been very durable and dependable for me.

Derwent Water Brush set (of three): Upcoming deal Reg $ 20.99 This is a great set of water brushes. I got mine for around $14 and I really love them and have used them a lot without any problems at all. One is this firm marker like tip that is interesting and that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

Iris 4×6 Photo and embellishment Craft Keeper 2 storage boxes with 32 4×6 individual boxes: these are AWESOME I use them for project boxes and keep things grouped together nicely.. They are great to grab and go if you want to pop one of the 4×6 boxes in your purse too. Upcoming deal (Reg $ 57.99)
Cricut Explore Air (first generation) only $140.49! This is a great deal for those that don’t care about the minor differences of this machine over the Explore Air 2.

THESE Watercolor box tins are traditional and usually expensive. I have purchased them on the amazon sale price which is a great deal but now they are priced at $11.99 to 15.99 which is CRAZY. They have them in three different sizes with full or half pans included (you can also get them without pans. This is a must grab deal!

There is SO much more… Some things that I cannot recommend personally but I am purchasing today for the first time. There are lots of items for every kind of crafter and I am sure I did not see everything yet. Be sure to check out the main deal page and the craft specific deals  throughout the day. You can even set notifications for the upcoming deals so you can get alerts when it goes live.

I hope this list helps you in your shopping today. I will update the list as I see new deals worth mentioning. If you have a deal you think I should share please let me know in the comments below this post!

I will be back this Friday with the Honey Bee Stamps Under the Sea new release blog (swim) hop! Make sure you check social media and the Honey Bee Stamps page for sneak Peeks!

Last an update regarding Close to my Heart….

Many of you have seen my Close to my heart videos on organization. If not feel free to click HERE to view them.

For the last four + years I have been a Close to My Heart consultant. I was so passionate about the organizers they offer and how it really helped me get started with my craft room organization. I wanted to share that organization inspiration with others, but I did not become a consultant to exclusively represent CTMH. I love their products but I also love a wide range of products and believe that all the products in this industry that are available to the papercrafting artist community only enhances our creativity and we don’t have to stick to only one brand. CTMH Has a policy in place that I cannot represent or design with any other companies products and actively promote anyone besides CTMH. I did not know this when I signed up (I guess I failed to read close enough) or I would not have entered into that commitment. When presented with the choice of terminating my other relationships and product designing with other companies or terminating my contract with CTMH this week I chose to terminate my contract with CTMH. I am sure my customers can understand why I have made that decision.

All of that being said I still love the CTMH brand and especially their organizers. I have a good friend who is also a CTMH consultant. Felicia Voris is kind, Honest, and quick to help others so she was the perfect person to refer my customers to. You can visit Felicia’s CTMH shop by clicking the link HERE. Felicia may from time to time share my videos and posts that highlight the CTMH organizers. I have given her, and only her, complete permission and access to those resources.  Thank you for helping me support Felicia. I know you will adore her!

That is all for now! I will be back soon with new projects to share! Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
