The January Spotted Box Rocked!

I gave a short description last month, but here it is again. The Spotted Box is a box of family-oriented, eco-friendly samples from independent crafters, all packaged together and sent directly to you! Designed with the young family in mind, these handmade samples are focused on children and their mothers. It rocks!

I've sent in 60 samples for the last two months, so I received my own box in the mail both months. It has been fabulous! My almost 2-yr. old daughter now looks forward to the box and gets excited to go through it with me each time. This time, she really scored w/ 2 bags of handmade playdough from (her personal favorites) and several barrettes and hair clips. I'll include a few pictures and a description of as many things as I can find. Our box gets spread out quickly--even my husband found something this month!
Here it goes:
--2 samples of homemade playdough (orange and green) plus coupons from (will use)
--$5 gift certificate from The Melting Pot Candle Co. (already used)
--2 $5 gift certificates from (still looking through shop, but will use these, too)
--$5 gift certificate from (still looking through this shop)
--Black Pearl Pepper Seeds from (husband already claimed these to grow)
--cookie from (already gone, yum!)
--Drawstring bag from (daughter already stole and plays with this one, too)
--handpainted infant tshirt from (gave this to a friend with a newborn son--this tshirt was adorable!)
--"Love" felt hair clip from (daughter wears this already)
--hair clip from (she's got this one, too)
--barrette from (too big for her fine hair, but she likes it)
--bath salts from (definitely will use, smells great!)
--Apple Jack and Peel laundry detergent from Jenny's Simply Clean (will use this one)
--eco-friendly lavendar dryer sachet from (smell is a little strong for me, but we'll use it somewhere)
--Peppermint diaper Pail Freshner from (will definitely use this one!)
--all purpose cleaner from (will use)
--2 cards from (not my personal style of messages, but I have a few friends who will appreciate them, will use)
--stitch marker from (will look for someone to pass this one along to as I personally won't be able to use it)
--reversable potholder/ hotpad knitting pattern from (will look for someone to pass this one along to)
--zipper pull from (will use)
--lip balm from (will use)
--earrings from (will definitely wear these!)
--catnip toy from (the two cats both claimed this one early on and love it!)
--cloth wipe from (daughter uses this for her dolls)

Love, love, love The Spotted Box and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try out some new eco-friendly items for themselves or their family!

To get involved, you can contact Tory at . I'm already signed up again for the Feb. and March boxes! Mention me (Traci at T and Little S Designs) if you sign up, so I can get free advertising for the referral. :)

It's a great way to advertise, as well as get your own box if you send in 60 samples. I love it!

Hope you enjoy the pepper seeds! They're super hot but very tasty. :)

Glad you will get some use out of the zipper pull.
