Hi lovely people!
It’s a new year but one thing that isn’t changing is my love and desire to try new craft projects. I have so many ideas for the next few months, I don’t know what to do with myself!!
So, what if I told you that I had 12 ideas for you that would guarantee you had a fun project every month for the entire year? What if I told you I take away the hardest part of crafting (which is most often idea generation)? Is that something you would be interested in?
I knew you would so keep reading!
At the start of this year I launched A Moment in Time, which is a monthly craft subscription box. Each month will have a project released and you are able to order the project either on a month-to-month basis as desired or you can sign up for a subscription.
Well that sounds like fun, tell me more Tempestt!
This monthly craft box gathers up everything you need to craft right at home. With this kit, you get to create where you want, when you want, and how you want. Your box will include project materials and complete instructions and video support will be provided. Take a look at the current offerings:
The biggest thing to note about this particular craft box is that we work a month ahead. Let me give you an example to help you understand what I mean by this…
I want you to have your Christmas craft at the start of December. Ordering it at the beginning of December and receiving it mid December leaves you with just a few days to enjoy it before the month ends, right? So, the December design would be released at the end of October with orders running through the beginning of November. It would then ship out mid November so you can receive it and get it finished and on display in your space by December 1st!
Keep reading and I will break this down in Q&A form.
What is included in a box? Everything you need to complete the project such as wood, paint, paint brushes/sponges, glue, ribbon, twine. For example, the February box includes the two tags (big and small), the XOXO letters and the word love, and a wood washer and heart which will all need to be glued to the tags (see picture). You will also receive a piece of ribbon (note ribbon may vary based on supply but will certainly match), twine, four paint colors to choose from, a paper plate to use as a paint palette, and craft paper to protect your work space.
When are the future designs released so I can see what I will be making? Designs should be posted to my social media sites a couple of days before the month ends. Remember, we work in advance so at the end of January I will be previewing the March craft project so we can close orders early February and move into production.
Am I able to order a craft box whenever I want? Yes and No. All orders should occur within the pre-order window to receive the current advertised box. To conserve wood and materials, boxes are made to order. All box orders for the month we are on must be received before the pre-order window closes. Having a subscription of course guarantees a box and would not require a manual order each month. If you subscribe AFTER the 10th of the current month, you will be reserving the next craft that will be introduced. For example, you log on and subscribe on March 17th, you will be receiving a box late April (that is technically May’s box because the April craft boxes would have been produced and shipped out by then).
When do pre-orders close? Pre-orders will close on the 10th of every month.
Do I have to make my craft project look like the pictures? Absolutely not! While I will give you a few colors to start off with, you are not limited to that especially if you have other art supplies around. Also, acrylic paint is only 50 cents from Walmart so definitely grab more if you want to step outside the box. On my social media pages after boxes have shipped, I will post inspirational photos from other people in our craft community so you can see how endless your options are.
Great! So how do I get a box? Go to the shop page here, www.timeswithtempestt.com/shop and select your option. You can subscribe for 3, 6, or 12 months. Review those options to see the perks for subscribing. You can also shop whatever box is available at the time. At the time of this blog post, both January and February boxes are available but they will sell out.

Until next time,
