The Value of an Adults & Crafts DIY Craft Kit

The Value of an Adults & Crafts DIY Craft KitWhen we first came up with the idea of selling DIY craft kits, we decided to take a few pictures of our favorite Pinterest craft ideas to Home Depot and get some of the materials to make them. We showed one of the projects to a gentleman working there and his response completely caught us off guard. He told us "you guys are making my life a living hell." While we sincerely hoped he was exaggerating a bit, we were a bit perplexed, so we asked him to elaborate a little. While we won't give you his whole explanation, it went something along the lines of "ever since Pinterest came around, people come in with a picture of what they want to make, but have no idea how to make it, no idea which materials are needed, and then expect me to give them all the answers". Right then we knew we had a great product with our DIY craft kits.

Today we are going to dive into exactly what makes our craft kits so valuable to our customers including the time saved, money saved, hassle avoided, frustration alleviated, waste prevented, no driving required, tools you can keep, and finally finishing with an awesome product. Our kits bring value whether you are in the crafting hall of fame or have never even picked up a paintbrush. Let's explore...

Time Saved

We did a case study to see how much time it took from us to go from conception to completion of a typical DIY craft project. To do this, we found a craft project on Pinterest, studied it for a bit to determine which materials it required, figured out how to make it, purchased the materials from Michael's and Home Depot, and then made the project. The time breakdown was as followed:

Find a project: 15 mins

Determine materials & how to make it: 20 mins

Drive time and time in Michael's & Home Depot: 1 hour 20 mins

Break: 10 mins

Time to make the project: 2 hours 30 mins

Total time: 4 hours 35 mins

Then to make sure we had a control in the experiment, we had our friends do the same project but had them do it directly from one of our prepared craft kits. Assuming it would have taken ten minutes to pick it from our website, it took them a total of 2 hours and 20 mins. Therefore, from our complex scientific analysis, when receiving the craft kits directly to your door with the correct materials and instructions, it saved 2 hours and 15 mins.

Money Saved

Disclaimer: We are a business, and we do try to make money.

While we do attempt to make a little cash from each package, we do believe we help avoid customers from spending extra money. How do we do this? Well, to start each of our packages come with the correct materials to complete each project, thus avoiding a chance of buying the wrong stuff or incorrectly sized components. Also, we give a proper amount of what is needed to help avert having excessive materials that you will have no use for after you finish. Also, many times your finished product will be overall less expensive than an equivalent finished product you would buy from a store.

Hassle Avoided

Is there anything more aggravating than running errands and then returning home to find you bought the wrong stuff. Or ordering something online and waiting a week for it to arrive only to receive the incorrect product. Well, simply said, no need to worry about that with our DIY craft kits! We made all those mistakes so you don't have to. 

Frustration Alleviated

One of the most difficult parts we have learned throughout the process of getting Adults & Crafts off the ground is figuring out the best way to do all our projects. Let's just say there was a lot of trial & error involved. The good part for you is we went through all those trials and tribulations and put them down on paper so you don't need to experience them. We spent a lot of time and exerted a lot of effort into each set of our easy-to-follow instructions to make it as stress-free as possible to complete one of our projects, thus improving your health and lengthening your life-expectancy:)

Waste Prevented

There are many materials that we send out that have a relatively limited use besides for their intended purpose within each project. Therefore, we send you precisely what is required for each project (OK maybe a little more than the bare minimum, just in case) so you don't have to throw away or keep any unnecessary excess.

No Driving Required

We don't know how far you live from Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or Lowe's (or how far it is between them), but no worries. We gather all the materials and send them directly to your door, so you don't need to find out how far it is between them (at least not for our projects).

Tools you can Keep

While our projects do come with some materials that don't provide much use other than with our projects, some do come with (optional) tools that you can use after such as hammers, screwdrivers, glue gun, and maybe even a wood burner.

The Finished Product

Our craft kits provide value to even the most practical, left-brained, analytical person out there. Yes, some of the projects are strictly for display purposes only, but some of them do serve a (very) functional purpose afterward. For the ones that are just for display, well we guarantee they will be great talking pieces and (most will) look great for years to come in your home.


There are a few more value added points of our projects including the fun you have making them, the easiness of deciding what to make, the incredibly good date idea they are, and the impressive gift they can be. Also, if you are looking for the easiest way ever to have a craft party, check out our party pack page today!

We would love for you to try one of our craft kits today and see exactly how fun it can be to make one of our projects and how sweet your end-product will be!

The Top Ten Benefits of Crafting for Adults

The Top Ten Benefits of Crafting for AdultsIf you had asked me about getting into crafting routine a year ago, I would have been a bit intimidated. For one, I wouldn't even know where to start. I wouldn't know what projects to do or where to go to get the materials, let alone how to do those projects. Also, being a more left-brain orientated person myself, it would have probably just gone one ear and out the other, wouldn't have even given it a second thought. Combining those two points put crafting in the similar category as break-dancing and poetry, both activities I admittingly would just not be good at doing.

Then something changed, I just TRIED it. I did a simple project (wood-burning) and found myself really into it. Once I started and put some focus into it, I loved it. Then when I finished my project, I was more than just a little proud of it. Since then I have got into a regular crafting routine, it has been quite (tangibly) beneficial for me. Let me go over the top ten reasons to adults to craft. 

1) There are numerous health and mental benefits.

Some people may think this is just a line of fluff, but trust me, it's not. As a young adult, I admit these probably aren't as beneficial for me as an older person, but they do still help me out. Some of the things I have noticed include better hand-eye and spatial coordination thanks to the detailed work involved with many crafting projects. Also, by using my hands for something other than typing, I can tell my dexterity is maintaining, if not improving.

Then we can get into the mental side of things. The focus that's involved with crafting stimulates areas of my brain that have been dormant since my middle school art class, keeping my brain sharp and more well-rounded. Also, I have to say that crafting really improves my mood. Although it can be challenging sometimes, knowing I am doing something productive (think exercising) helps me get my mind off other things and simply just makes me happier.

2) It gets you off your phone.

I will be the first to admit that I spend WAY too much time on my phone, and I know I am not the only one. I have noticed that a majority of the time I am on my phone, I am just bored, not because I need to be on my phone. It similar to people (me again) who eat out of boredom, not out of hunger.

Since I have started crafting, it has provided my something to do. Not only is the act of crafting a fun activity to do, but choosing which one to do next or talking about my past projects with people are also things that simply get me off my phone.

3) You can get really good at crafting, quickly!

Literally, within the first few minutes of my very first project, I could notice myself getting better. I don't know if I actually was getting better or if it was all just in my head, it doesn't matter, I was focusing more and being more careful as I was really into it. Now after many projects later I can legitimately say I am indeed a lot better, and have a lot more crafting skills to boot. I can guarantee you will feel just like I did if you just start, that's the hardest part.

4) Crafting allows you to learn new skills.

With the variety of skills required for the many different types of adult craft projects out there, you can learn a lot quickly. You could focus on one skill and become a master at that, or do a variety and become a jack of all trades, that's the beauty of crafting. Clay working, wood burning, and photo transfer are just a few of the talents you could easily acquire when you start to craft.

5) Crafting is a great social activity.

This may be one of the best benefits of crafting in my book because the options are seemingly unlimited. Don't get me wrong, I have found myself crafting by myself before and enjoying it, but nothing beats crafting as a social activity. You can do it as a new date idea with your new boyfriend or your wife of 40 years, have a crafting party for a girl's night on a Wednesday, or you could even do it as a unique office party. Crafting promotes natural conversation and curiosity about other people's projects. The questions and answers about how to do something or why someone is doing a certain design open more doors to getting to know someone that just don't normally come up over dinner or regular social engagement.

6) Finishing an adult craft kit provides you that sense of accomplishment we all love.

We have all had it before, and I would bet a lot of money a vast majority of us love that good ole sense of accomplishment feeling. The best part is, unlike homework or a project at work, when you finish a craft you can enjoy using it or looking at it for years to come. The much more prolonged sense of pride of having a quality piece that you created is priceless.

7) You can make your own crafty products you would normally just buy at a store.

What makes Adults & Crafts a unique business is the fact that many of the adult craft kits we provide are functional and practical products. While there are some that are purely for decorative purposes, there are others like them that you can use literally every day. Some of the products are typical things you would find in a store that you can add your own personal touch to (Alcohol Ink Dyed Coasters) while for others, you would be hard-pressed to find in any store. The moral of the story is why buy these products at the store when you can get them for cheaper with Adults & Crafts, have fun making them, make them just the way you want, and then cherish them much more than you would a regular product for a long time.

8) Craft Kits for Adults give you an opportunity to do something a little different.

Sure we all like to take a break from the normal routine. If you are anything like me, your breaks would include going out to the bars on the weekends and attempting to be active on the weekdays. It can get to a point where those too turn into a routine, and while being active is a productive activity, going out and drinking doesn't exactly provide a wholesome feeling the morning after (at least for me). Crafting provides the change-up to the daily grind and a great change-up at that.

9) Your finished products are a great talking piece.

Whether your friend comes over when you're in the middle of making something or three years after you've made it, I can promise that more often than not, your friend will ask you about it and be very intrigued. Just like that sense of accomplishment that we talked about earlier, you'll feel a certain sense of pride when talking about the products you make. Perhaps so much so that your friend will want to do one too;)

10) And with our kits, it couldn't be more convenient!

One of the main problems of crafting in the past was the hassle of gathering all the correct materials required to produce some of the more involved projects. Then there are the times that you do get everything you need, but when you finish you have a surplus of materials that you simply don't have any other use for. Then there are times that you run around to all the stores and gather what you think is everything you need, but you get back home and find out you got the wrong sized nails. Then there are the times that you do get everything you need, but it took you a trip to the hobby shop, craft store, and hardware store and three hours later you are too tired to even start your craft project. And then there are times you get everything you need but are stuck on a certain step of the project that you just can't figure out.

Well, with Adults & Crafts Craft Kits, those times are a thing of the past. Our kits come with the proper amount of the correct materials and easy-to-follow instructions, and best of all they come directly to your doorstep!

We truly believe we offer amazing products and would love for you to find a product you would love to make and cherish after you finish. If you do enjoy our kits, perhaps you could give our subscription box the Adults & Crafts Crate a try! Also, don't forget about our crafting party packs, the easiest way you could have a fantastic craft party with your friends, colleagues, or family.

The Health and Mental Benefits of Crafting



The health and mental benefits of craftingIn today's world, there are more than enough things that bring stress upon us. On an average day, we have to deal with traffic during our commute, deadlines at work, and even deciding what to eat for dinner (a small, but seemingly insurmountable task sometimes). Then there are bigger life complexities hovering over us such as if this job is indeed what you want to be doing with your life and the proverbial "love life". Everybody has to deal with these in some way or fashion, and most people have their vice to help them deal with it. For many it's exercise, for others its partying, traveling can help escape the routine, and then there is crafting.

The voluntary mental focus applied while crafting and sense of accomplishment when finished, provide emotions that can be hard to attain when cycling through the daily routine. Sure partying can take your mind off things and be a lot of fun, but it doesn't exactly give you that warm and fuzzy feeling the morning after. Traveling can be exhilarating, but for many of us, it's just not that feasible to do on a regular basis. On the other hand, crafting can be done in the comfort of your home, whenever you want, and with our craft kits you don't even need to go out and gather all the materials needed:). There have been numerous reports on how effective crafting can be for stress-relief, check them out here, here, and here.

Not only can crafting help lower your stress and get your mind off things, but there are also other health benefits attributed to crafting.

1) Improve your Mood

Whether you are by yourself, crafting with your significant other, or having a craft party, activating those creative juices can be a great mood enhancer. When you craft with other people, it can turn into a genuinely fun social affair. Even after you finish, the sense of pride you'll have when people ask you about your piece can turn a frown upside-down.

2) Boost your Brainpower

The focus required while crafting is an effective way to exercise the brain for people of all ages. There have been many studies done that connect the reduced chances of mental deterioration over time with crafting. Also, crafting activates areas of the brain that are not as active during the routine work you may be used to.

3) Increase Social Activity & Communal Support

Crafting provides a unique social atmosphere where not only are you focusing on your craft, but you are connecting with the people you are crafting with. Crafting promotes natural conversation through the pieces you are creating and the questions and answers that come along with it. It is a unique date idea as well as a great activity to plan a party around.

4) Helps with Hand-Eye Coordination

Whether you are doing a large woodworking project or doing a delicate dream catcher, careful hand-eye coordination is required. For many of us who have office jobs, we don't get to use out hands and make something as often as we would like, crafting gives us a way to use those hands for something else besides typing. We learn our hand-eye coordination early in life with crafting in kindergarten, now we can maintain our skills and dexterity throughout our lives with crafting.  

5) Can Help Fight Aging

Whether it be mentally through the focus and brainpower that crafting requires or physically by the improvement in visual-spatial coordination crafting helps with, crafting can help turn back the clock. Also, the social element when crafting with other people can aid keeping your conversation and social skills at their highest levels.

All-in-all, crafting can help our moods, hand-eye coordination, social skills, and even brainpower. Check out our craft kits today to find one that is right for you and your friends.

Also, the social element when crafting with other people can aid keeping your conversation and social skills at their highest levels.

All-in-all, crafting can help our moods, hand-eye coordination, social skills, and even brainpower. Check out our craft kits today to find one that is right for you and your friends.

We do the hard part, so YOU can do the fun part!


Let's start with a few facts about how we spend our time in a given day. In our home city of Denver, CO, the average commute time one way to work is about 26 minutes, which happens to be just about the national average. That's almost an hour a day we spend just driving to and from work, and that's not even that bad considering the average in cities like Chicago and New York can be almost 11 hours a week!

Besides commuting, the average American spends about 40 minutes a day grooming (probably a bit more for women ;) ), an hour and a half doing household activities (laundry, dishes, cooking, etc.), and a couple of hours a week grocery shopping. We haven't even started talking about work, sleep, and TV (i.e. The Bachelor). It is easy to see that we are pretty damn busy people nowadays.

With all the hustle and bustle we got going on in our lives, cherishing our leisure time is essential. The problem is, as we alluded to earlier, we spend a lot of time watching TV, almost three hours a day to be exact, not the most fulfilling activity if we may be frank.

So we are busy, but when we have time, we usually decide to plop down on the couch and watch Netflix and literally chill. Well, at Adults & Crafts we are doing what we can to change it up a bit.

We are firm believers that crafting can be not only a fun activity to do, but it can actually be quite therapeutic. Better yet, with our DIY craft kits, when you finish your project, you have something to use or keep for years to come, it's a true win-win situation. The problem is, crafting is not the easiest activity to get ready. Each project requires multiple different materials which you can't just go to a one-stop-shop for, it requires stops at the hardware store, hobby shop, craft store, and possibly more. And to make matters worse, it is very easy to buy the wrong component, trust us, we know from experience.

This is where Adults & Crafts comes in. First, we pick out some pretty cool projects to create. Second, we have built all these projects and made tons of mistakes so you don't have to. From those errors, we learned precisely which materials to buy and the proper way to get the projects done. Third, we assemble all those (correct) materials and (clearly) write out the instructions. Finally, the best part, we send them directly to your door!

We encourage you to check out our craft kits, or better yet, give our craft subscription box, the Adults & Crafts Crate a try. Receiving a new craft package every month which you can enjoy turning into an awesome product is the perfect change-up to the routine that is...life!

Welcome to Adults & Crafts!

Adults & Crafts was founded on a simple concept, making it easy for people to get unique DIY arts and crafts kits they can use to make their own special product. Finding a product to make can be difficult, let alone running around to different hardware stores, arts and crafts stores and hobby shops to find all the necessary materials needed to create that work of art. At Adults & Crafts, we take all the pain away by having an excellent selection of crafts to choose from, and kits with all the necessary materials and instructions to make the craft on your own.

How did Adults & Crafts come about? Well if you are anything like our Co-Founder Marianna Narowski, you were left with a large void in the right side of your brain after you left your high school art class. Creating your own art is a therapeutic, fulfilling activity that many of us rarely do after we leave the classroom. There are many reasons for this, but we believe the biggest is the inconvenience, it is just hard to get the materials you need to do the cool projects you used to in art class. With our busy lifestyles nowadays, people just don't have the time or motivation to find a project and get it done. That is where we come in! Not only are our projects fun to make, but when you finish you have a product you can use or display, making it productive for even the more objective orientated minds.

We have tested every one of our products and now have an amazing collection of crafts that we built ourselves. Not only are we proud of each craft, but many are practical and can be useful on an everyday basis. Each craft can be made with one's personal touch, allowing a level of customization that you simply can't find from any normal product. Crafting a product with your own unique style, and better yet showing it off later creates quite the sense of accomplishment.

As a young start-up company, we are launching with ten of our favorite project ideas. As time goes on, we will be adding plenty more along with many different options to purchase such as a subscription service. Also, since we are a first-of-a-kind business, we would love to hear your feedback on how we can improve and create a better product for you.

Thank you very much for visiting Adults & Crafts, feel free to follow us on social media as we will be posting tons of content from us, and more importantly, you! Just use the hashtag #adultsandcrafts and your project could feature on one of our accounts or even our website.
