I am always looking for new ways to incorporate crafts into Rylynn’s schooling, but she’s more of a book work person. What can I say? She’s just like her dad. I haven’t given up, though. This time around we tried Bramble Box! Guess what? She loved it!
She may have been more excited to make a video of opening the box than actually making the things that came in it at first. She is a fan of those crazy YouTube videos of kids unboxing toys. Anyway, once she saw what was inside, she said three words that lit up my world. “Let’s Get Started!”
This box was a Chinese craft box. It had everything to make a really cool dragon, chicken, and Chinese food! Take a look!
How cute is she?
Bramble Box, definitely got 2 thumbs up from the Taylor family. It was super simple and she was able to do all the steps on her own with minimal help from me! How awesome!!
Check out our video about Bramble Box and how she created these super cute crafts!

I am such a huge fan of subscription meal boxes. They make my life so much less complicated and stressful! Having the ability to just open a box and all of my ingredients are right there without having to decide what to make is genius!
This box is from Martha and Marley Spoon! Martha, as in Martha Stewart. So, you know the food is going to be good! Now, not all the ingredients are organic, however, they are great quality. Just washing the produce thoroughly is really key.
I had this whole plan of setting up to record the whole process of making this meal. My daughters, on the other hand, had other plans in mind. They wanted to commentate. I’m sure this would have been absolutely hilarious, but I didn’t want to miss any steps. Instead, I decided to record as I was cooking and take a lot of pictures. No judging, my camera and editing skills are still lacking, but this is worth the watch!
This sweet and sour chicken recipe was so good! Joe and I are both huge fans of Chinese food. We serve a lot of foods over rice and this is exactly what we like. The Chinese broccoli really threw me off. I have never seen that before, but it was good! We both agreed that if we can find this locally, we will be cooking with it more often!
This meal gets 2 thumbs up from the Taylor family. Even our children liked it! Rylynn wasn’t a huge fan of the broccoli, but liked the chicken and rice! Remy has very few foods that she doesn’t like. She ate everything we gave her!
Thank you, Martha and Marley Spoon!! Stay tuned for the other recipe I made from this box!!

As a mom, you gotta love mom subscription boxes! It’s so awesome. Every month you get a present in the mail, that is just for you! You don’t even have to share it if you don’t want to! I love it. This box is from Ecocentric Mom, it offers all-natural and/or organic products. You can get either the mom, pregnancy or mom and baby box.
My Ecocentric Mom Box was the mom box and it came with a lot of stuff in it! Check this out!
First, it comes all wrapped up in pretty pink paper.
With a paper that has all the contents and prices of each item! As you can see the $24 box is stuffed with items well over that amount.
There were two items from Live Inspired Organics. A Strawberry Sugar Scrub, that smells and feels absolutely amazing…
and a sample bag of tea. I am a huge tea drinker. This made the perfect cup of tea. Great to drink before bed and just relax! Go Ohio!
Common Sense Naturals included a spray hand sanitizer. It smelled wonderful and the convenience of being able to clip this onto a diaper bag or my purse was great!
Simply Earth Roll-On Relief in a Happy Joy scent. This stuff is pretty great. It is very uplifting and does help reduce stress and tension!
A gift card for handbags from Ivory Clasp. I have yet to use this gift card, but I did look over the website. They will match your style and make suggestions. This is another subscription service companies.
A sample size of Maty’s Cough Syrup.
A really cute magnetic picture hanging craft. We are currently redoing our homeschool room and I think this will be a cute addition to add to my daughters’ desks!
Hunkola!! I was pretty excited about this. I LOVE food, especially snacking type of food. This made the whole box worth it! haha.
Overall this was a pretty awesome box. Great quality products, no gimmicks. I was really impressed. Plus, it was nice to get a “gift” just for me!
When it was shipped it came really quick. The website is very user-friendly and you can pick how you would like your subscription to be set up. The more months you do the cheaper your box becomes! I highly suggest checking out Ecocentric Mom! Trust me, you’ll love it!
I’m just going to get this out of the way now, I Love Candy! I’ve gotten better over time, of course. I used to have candy stashed all over the place. In my car, purse, pantry, desk and at work. Basically, it was anywhere I was within reach. My husband always thought it was hilarious, I couldn’t help myself.
After I started switching to only buying organic candy, I started reading the labels. Some of those ingredients made me not want candy anymore. Organic candy is great, you get that guilty pleasure feeling when really you’re okay! However, organic candy isn’t a thing you find easily where I live. If I want it, I have to order it. That’s fine and all, but sometimes you just need that sweet fix!
Lately, I’ve been loving these subscription boxes. You just have stuff show up every month! It’s a nice surprise for me and my family. I really wanted a candy box of some sort, and then one-day browsing facebook I see these adorable containers with candy in them! BINGO!
I went to their website hoping to find some sort of organic candy. They didn’t have that, but they had a nice replacement. They had dark chocolate! Who doesn’t love chocolate??
If you didn’t know, dark chocolate has so many health benefits! It is loaded with antioxidants, improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, protects your skin from the sun and improves brain function!
With all those reasons right there is why Candy Club and I are going to be great friends!
What is Candy Club?
Candy Club is a candy subscription box company that sends you candy every month! They have a wide variety to choose from and you can choose 3 different kinds at the minimum. Look how pretty it comes!
They even fill it with hard candies to give an extra surprise
So, I ordered.. Dark Chocolate Covered Raisins. These were my favorite!
A Bridge Mix, which is a mix of dark chocolate covered nuts, caramels, and creams. There was a little milk chocolate covered things as well. I ordered it because it had dark in it. These were my husband’s favorite.
Lastly, I ordered chocolate covered almonds. When I ordered this, for some reason I thought it said dark chocolate covered, but really it was milk chocolate. It was my mistake, but it was really good!
They come in a great food grade plastic container that you can use over again for crafts and storage!
I really liked Candy Club. Shipping was super fast. Their website is easy to work through. They have a huge list of FAQ so, you know exactly how their system works. They have great customer service and overall their candy is really good! I’ll definitely be checking back to see what other chocolate they have available.
I think Candy Club has something for everyone! Definitely worth a try! They have some awesome promos going on right now. Check out these coupons!!
