In combination with the beverage from Bean Traders, Christy also has another business and is generously giving the giveaway winner a Fabulous Fall Craftybag as well. Here's a little bit about Craftybags:
What it is: Christy and another mom started Craftybag as a way for moms to have three ready-to-assemble crafts for their kids to complete whenever needed: in a restaurant, at home, while getting coffee, etc. Everything needed to complete the craft is included in the bag, and the completed art can be hung at home and enjoyed or given as a gift. What a great idea! The bags retails for $12-$15 dollars for a standard bag or $4 for a party favor. You can contact Christy at Craftybag through their facebook page or website to find out how to get your own.
What we liked: I love the idea that Craftybags include everything you need to complete three separate crafts in one bag. You don't even need to worry about glue sticks or scissors. Not only that, there is minimal packaging which is good for the environment, and they are donating 10% of every Craftybag purchase to charity.
What we would change: Right now, you have to contact Christy and the other owner to find out how to get your Craftybag. I am looking forward to when we can simply purchase them in stores or order them online. (Coming soon-check back with their website and facebook page.)
