When it comes to being a mom I know how hard and stressful it can be. I’m a big advocate for self care, but I know that it doesn’t fix the days stresses. Self care gives you time to unwind, time to enjoy some quiet, and time to do something that doesn’t involve needy little ones. I know it can be hard to get out of the house for self care when you’re raising tiny humans. That’s why I do a lot of my self care at home. Hot showers before bed, popcorn (that I don’t have to share) and a movie after the kids are in bed, and my favorite – CRAFTING.
Crafting is one of the ways I like to de-stress and I know many other moms loves to do the same. Creating pretty things is a great way to relax and have fun. That’s where Bluprint comes in handy. Bluprint, formally known as Craftsy, is the perfect gift to keep Mom creatively inspired and actively pursuing her favorite hands-on hobbies. A crafting mom is a happy mom!
In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Bluprint, two thirds of adults surveyed said they’re seeking more creativity in their lives. So, why not give your mom a head-start this Mother’s Day by giving the gift of Bluprint?
There are so many crafts I would love to pick-up or get better at. I’d love to learn how to embroidery, and crochet. I’d also love to strengthen my photography kills. Bluprint makes all of this easy with their online video tutorials and articles. Pick a subject, like embroidery, and then browse through all their videos that cover everything from supplies you’ll need, beginner steps, and project tutorials. Since I’m a visual learner I am enjoying all the videos they have to offer and everything is easy for me to understand.
