Jacqueline Fryers sticker – Estimated Retail Value $1
The first items are a sticker and promo card from this month’s featured artist, Jacqueline Fryers.
Jacqueline Fryers Lips Illustrated Sketchbook – Retail Value $4.74
I really like the energy and style of this little notebook. It’s perfect for quick doodles or notes.
Jacqueline Fryers Cheers Hombre! Postcard – Estimated Retail Value $1.50
This image is also available as a print or greeting card in the artist’s Etsy shop.
Gold and Pink Confetti Washi Tape – Retail Value $3.92
This washi tape is pink and metallic gold. It’s beautiful!
Two Jacqueline Fryers Pencils – Total Retail Value $5.42 ($2.71 each)
These pencils would make nice stocking stuffers since they come individually wrapped. I think there might be variations on the text, but the ones I received say ‘stay gold’ and ‘choose life’.
Jacqueline Fryers Cactus Notepad – Retail Value $4.06
I’ve already started using this notepad for grocery lists. I like the bold artwork and colors.
Innocent Bones Embroidery Kit – Estimated Retail Value $12 (based on a similar item)
The kit uses white aida cloth and black embroidery floss.
I knew there’d be a pattern, but I was surprised that they also included two sheets of instructions for stitching and finishing the piece. This would be a great kit if you’re new to cross stitching.
Here’s the hoop for creating and displaying the embroidery. The edges are a bit rough and it’s not a hoop I’d buy if I wanted to reuse it, but it worked well for this project.
I started with the little heart. I love embroidery but hadn’t done cross stitching on aida cloth since I was a child.
Here’s my assistant checking my work.
The final step was to add backing fabric, and then trim and gather the fabric on the back. I like that some cotton was included for backing the piece. It helps hide any messy stitching!
Here’s the finished piece! I like how it turned out.
Verdict: I estimate a value around $33 for this month’s box, which is above the $30.83 price even with international shipping. Also, the prices for the items were reasonable and not inflated, so I think it’s a solid value. I was surprised at how much they managed to fit into such a small box! The designs from Jacqueline Fryers have a wonderful energy and the kit was a perfect project for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
October’s box is still available in the Innocent Kit store, but if you sign up now, you will receive the November box.
