Monday Morning's Review and Giveaway: Urban Homesteaders



I came across Urban Homesteaders while I was looking around Etsy for fun crafts to add to our Snowflake Celebration back in January.  I loved this shop immediately! The earthy, organic feels just pulls you right in.  I love what Angela has to say about her philosophy on life and her shop. And her granny sounds like a blast! Take a look.....

    " Before starting a family I worked as an anthropologist. Today, we keep chickens and a large vegetable and herb garden on our 1/3 acre Baltimore plot. I appreciate simple living and sustainability. One of my role models is my great-grandmother, who embodied this philosophy. She could crochet and bake bread like no other, and she loved to do eclectic things, like yodeling and mushroom hunting. She lived to the ripe age of 102. Our world today needs to rediscover such qualities!

      I opened Urban Homesteaders in November 2010, and hope to build a shop that is more than just a shop! "



The Review
Make Your Own Snowflake Magnets Craft Kit
 This is how our kit arrived.  I love how she used raffia and a little heart to wrap it.
  Just a little extra touch goes a long way in my book.

 Here is the kit we received.
 Here's what we started with. (The middle jar is glow-in-the-dark paint.)
 Everything we needed to end up with.....
....these!
 
  I love  how they came out! My grits love them and they were thrilled when I turned off the lights and they glowed. I added the numbers so these great magnets could do double duty as a counting game for school. These are really strong magnets, too.


     Look at some of the great stuff Urban Homesteaders has for the Spring.....
This Wood Daisy Magnet kit ($4.50) would make a great craft project to welcome Spring this year.
I love this little Pot of Peas! (10.95)  Can't you just see a child stirring, scooping, and sorting these peas for hours!
