Feb. Loot Crate

In an effort to bring a bit more geekiness to the blog, I decided to go ahead and purchase a subscription to Loot Crate {referral link}.  What is Loot Crate?  Well, it’s a service where they curate a collection of geeky things and send you a box of stuff that fits the theme.  Last month’s theme was Nasa (so wish I got that one), and this month’s theme is Warriors.  I’ll be honest, I am not familiar with Bravest Warriors (where the theme came from), but that’s ok, I still really enjoyed my crate.

Now, here’s the thing.  I really wanted to keep things interesting, so I’m setting myself a challenge.  For every box, I want to use 1 thing from the box to create a craft.  So for each crate I receive, I’ll give you an overview of what came in the box.  Then I’ll show you the special item that I’ll be making a craft with.  Sometime between the review and next months’ crate, I’ll post the craft I make.  Sound like fun?  I hope so!  I’m sure excited about it!

Ok, onto the crate!  Here’s the crate, stuffed to the gills with goodies:

The first thing I pulled out was the really great magazine they create to go with each crate.

This was followed by this really great alphabet soup t-shirt.  I want to wear this all the time!  And honestly, the fabric was really great and makes me want buy all sorts of shirts from Woot shirt.

A pin (I believe these are collectible, and you get one with each crate):

This really cool Bacon Card, and a subscription to Open Me (a pretty cool custom card group, which provides personalized e-cards and print cards):

Some Bravest Warriors goodies (there’s also a gas powered stick bag that I didn’t get a big picture of, but you can see it in the picture with all the loot up above):

And finally, this really cool bowtie featuring Catbug.  I don’t know what Catbug is, or anything about him (her?)… but I love it!

The tie is made by Black Tie Geek.  They seem to be pretty new to the game (their website is just an email list to be notified when they start doing more), but this product made me want to see more of what they have.  In fact, looking them up was one of the first things we did after opening the box!

I know someone is going to call blasphemy on me, but the bow tie will be my craft project.  Fabric is just so fun to deal with, and I’ve got some great ideas that will keep true to the product.  Plus, neither Earl nor I are bowtie people, so this is a way that I can transform it into something that I’ll be able to us it more prominently.

And finally, this post isn’t sponsored in any way.  I just really wanted to try Loot Crate and share it with you.  If you’re interested in getting your own, I’d really love it if you used my referral link.  The boxes start at $13.37 a month (plus shipping).  And they do ship internationally!  With the referral link, I get credit towards future boxes.  Thanks!

I have so many projects planned for this weekend!  Plus, I had planned on posting about my labels earlier this weeks, but it seems I’ve misplaced my files.  For some reason, that post really doesn’t want to happen!  I’ll be sure get something else up tomorrow or Friday.  Hopefully I can figure out where I moved those files to soon, especially since I’ve already written that post!  Till then, stay crafty my friends!
