Summer Crafting

 The summer box from Happy Hedgehog Post was full of so many absolutely incredible projects that I think it's safe to say that this one is our most favorite one yet! Normally, we get a monthly "envelope", thought it's really a package, full of all sorts of projects and the materials to complete them, but since Samantha (the creator of HHP) was nearing the end of her pregnancy she decided to do one summer bundle so that she could focus on her baby rather than the envelopes that needed to go out. What a smart mama (and what lucky customers we all are)!
 The first project the girls chose to do was wet felting soap. The most luscious smelling cucumber melon soap was included, as well as all the roving that would be needed. While we've needle felted before wet felting was new for us!
 Emma's completed soap (I forgot to get a picture of Grace's). It came out beautifully!

Since there is a pretty strict water ban in our town this summer we decided to forgo our usual vegetable garden. We're so sad to not have one this year, but we've all agreed it was the right choice. We were thrilled to see that there were materials in the summer box to grow a little window herb garden! It was the perfect way to still include that part of our summer rhythm but on a much smaller scale.
 A backyard bird list to check-off as they see each bird. It's like Happy Hedgehog Post knows us!
And as if this box couldn't get any better there were lots and lots of fairy house making materials! The girls divided it up and went out to scout out locations in which to build their fairy houses.
Our window herb garden today. The girls clearly chose the right place for this sweet garden to grow! It's clearly very happy in our bedroom window!

There are still a few more projects left to complete, too! I figured I'd hold on to them for a while longer so that we can have a few more things to do throughout the rest of the summer. We truly cannot thank Donna and Peter enough for this wonderful subscription to Happy Hedgehog Post! It has been such a treat and is so very looked forward to each month! xo


  1. We're kinda a fan of subscription boxes and this one looks so awesome, I'll put it on the back burner for when Issabelle and Harkin are a bit older.

    1. Yes, definitely keep this one in mind! It really is worth every penny! xo
