Usborne Children’s Sewing Kit is SEW Much Fun!

Confession: I don’t like getting my hands messy… really, I think I have a thing. Gooey, sticky, slimey? Nope, not for me.

I really do enjoy doing activities and crafts with my girls, but my ‘thing’ holds me back sometimes.

However, I’ve found the PERFECT craft to do over the holidays that doesn’t¬†get my hands sticky or gooey (woot!):

Artist Appreciation Day – Giveaway!

Okay, so Artist Appreciation Day was actually yesterday… whoopsie! How could I have missed it?! ūüėČ

In honor of this special day, let’s talk about Usborne’s art books!

Have you seen our art reference books? They really are some of the best I’ve seen (and I’ve looked through many art books!). I graduated with an Art degree from the University of Delaware many moons ago, and I love-love-lovity-LOVE fine art and music – and I want my girls to love them, too. However, it’s hard to know which art books to add to the family library when you can’t actually flip through them yourself.

Sigh… what to do?

I wish someone would just make a video of Usborne’s best-selling art books… that would really help, right?

Oh, wait! Y’all, I did that!

And I put together a giveaway?! What is this? Christmas!?! (scroll to the bottom for giveaway details)

The Usborne Book of Famous Paintings is one of our most popular art books! Recommended for ages 9+, it’s a beautiful introduction to 35 of the world’s best-loved paintings! There is some nudity (I always get asked that). Click here or below to see inside!
