February Theme: Sweet Shop
So the January box was a hit and I had so much fun making it! It was so exciting to get out of my comfort zone and try some new techniques, and the feedback I got was amazing (even if the calendar template I used was somehow wrong on January! 🤦♀️)
I think that choosing artists to inspire the box every few months is a great way to keep it fresh, and also relieve some of my burn out. I've found that it's becoming increasingly more difficult to find themes that I really care about, and it's even harder to find motivation to keep making things in the same old ways.
I've been tempted numerous times to branch into something new: creating DIY kits, writing a how-to book, buying a laser cutter for wood/acrylic earrings, working with precious metal clay, buying a 3D printer for cutters and other fun things, etc.
(If it wasn't obvious, the thing they all seem to have in common is a lot of time and money, which I don't have oops)
Because of this, I have decided that I really want to try and expand my clay horizons in 2024. I want to use the subscription boxes to make funky earrings that I would otherwise never try. I want to try and use polymer clay in more creative ways. I want to make products that are so obscenely time consuming that I could never offer them for general sale! 😂
This has been quite a ramble, so TL;DR - The ECD Subscription Box is gonna be full of unique goodness in 2024!
So February will be an earring twist on a British classic: Ye Olde Fashioned Sweet Shop! Think super bright colours, appetising designs, and jars of goodness. It'll be fun and nostalgic, and of course, with a few little sweet treats too!
Daisy Tier: The smaller tier will contain a super cute pair of 3D boiled sweet earrings. You know, the classic wrapped up sweets that rot your teeth. And, the extra this month is another pair of earrings! I had too many ideas to narrow it down, so you'll also get a pastel sugar cookie pair. Plus, there will be a couple of sweet treats.
Peony Tier: The bigger box will contain the earrings from above, as well as a gorgeous pair of clay sweet jar earrings (the big jars)! And as another little extra, a bundle of mixed sweets.
This month's box will be great value regardless of the box you choose!
February is a bit of a shorter month, and I'm going away for a week in the middle of it, so the boxes will be posted week commencing Feb 19th. It's a bit later than normal I know, but it's the only way I can fit it in and make sure that the products are as high quality as always!
The February version of the Odd Sock Club is also going to super fun, so make sure you check that out.
