Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! I hope that you had a very festive Thanksgiving! This week I do not have any crafts to share with you, but I definitely will try to blog about the baked goods I am planning to make in the next couple weeks. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some warm, gooey cookies! Christmastime is the best time of year to bake, so that we can share our tasty treats with others. 🙂 If you happen to be looking for some great Christmas recipes or dishes, I recommend getting a Pinterest account if you don’t already. Now I will warn you: Pinterest is very addictive! –But, it has some great ideas for cooking, diy, etc. The recipes or ideas I am planning to make are from Pinterest.

I also wanted to say that I am extending the Sleuth kit special offer to January 1st.  I talked about the offer a couple of posts ago.( If you would like to read more about the Nancy Drew Sleuth Kits click here. )  I just thought that I would extend the offer because the Nancy Drew Sleuth kits would make great Christmas presents, and you might as well get a free wallet to go with it! That will make one happy detective! If you are thinking about buying a Nancy Drew Kit for a very special detective, please contact me as soon as possible so that I can get it to you by Christmas.

If you have any questions please comment below; I promise to get back to you! 🙂

Have a great week-end!


Sleuth Kits For Sale Update

Well, yesterday was the first day of  November, which means only less than two months until Christmastime! It may seem a bit early, but I always get excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some people may be already planning a few gifts for family members, so I decided that I would make a little special offer for this month. For the sleuth kits on the For Sale page, I will give a free wallet with each sleuth kit that you buy. You can request a wallet that matches the bag, or you can ask for specific colors if you would like. This package will end on November 30th.  Also, if you buy a Nancy Drew sleuth kit this month, you will have no problem receiving it by Christmastime! I just wanted to make this offer if anyone is interested 🙂 . I put the pictures of the sleuth kits that are in stock below (click on a picture for more detailed photos).

And here are just a few wallets that I have made in the past(you can check out more at my Duct Tape Wallets page):

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If  you have any questions or wish to contact me, please leave a comment and I promise to get back to you!


Sleuth Kits For Sale!

It is finally July 1st, the day everyone (or maybe only a few) has been waiting for— the famous Nancy Drew inspired duct tape sleuth kits are for sale! For a long time I have been telling you guys about the mini sleuth kits, which will also be for sale starting today. Let’s take a quick look about each bag before we get started.

The original sleuth kit was made to prepare a detective for anything. Therefore, it comes with the essentials:  a magnifying glass, a penlight, a pen, a pencil, and a notepad (for writing down useful clues).Of course, there is also a large pocket to hold other gadgets or possible evidence. This bag is 9” tall, and 9 ¼” wide.

The mini sleuth kit was made for younger detectives (or just detectives who like to carry a lighter load), and equips them with the right gear to start their adventures: a magnifying glass, a notepad, a pencil, and a penlight. Similarly to the larger kit, the mini kits also have a large pocket to hold other sleuthing materials. The mini kit was made to be lighter than the original kits, so it is half the size. The mini kit is 7 ¾” tall, and 5 ½” wide.

Every detective needs a trusted friend, so I have also made sleuth bags for 18” dolls. These bags will come for free with each original bag, and will also be sold individually. So, if you would like, you can buy a sleuth kit with a matching bag for your doll!

Before you head over to the For Sale page for more details, I just wanted to remind you that all sales are first come first serve. Be sure to contact me as soon as possible if you are interested.

Tell me which bag is your favorite in the comments below!


Mark Your Calendars!

I have officially chosen a date to begin selling the sleuth kits! I chose  July 1 to give myself plenty of time to make a good amount of bags. Each bag will be different, so I will sell a bag to the first person who contacts me about it. You can contact me by commenting, and then after that I will get back to you by e-mail.  To find out when I post the new bags, you can subscribe to get updates by e-mail, or you could follow craftdgirlblog on twitter.

I also wanted to mention in this post another craft that I have recently made as a gift for a friend. I wanted to make a messenger bag out of duct tape, so I gathered zebra tape, black tape, and some index cards, and went to work. I used the index cards to give the bottom of the bag some support(this will also prevent the bag from sagging over time), and then covered it with duct tape.   I also wanted it to be a gift set, so I added a matching wallet to go with it. And- voila! A perfect gift to start the summer!

Check back soon!


Get Ready…

For about two months I have been working on the unique Nancy Drew inspired sleuth kits. I have chosen the color schemes according to the popular choices from the polls I have put up in the past, but I am also making a couple cute bags that I did not mention in the poll (which are my personal favorites!). I am still not sure what date I will begin the sale of  the bags, but I

promise that my next post will say the exact date. In addition to the sleuth kits, I may also sell a few other homemade crafts from this blog. The bags will only be on sale for a limited time only, so please keep checking back to see the start and the end dates.

The kits are a great Christmas present to any Nancy Drew fan, but I normally don’t sell the bags during Christmastime, so now would be the time to think about buying them for a very thoughtful gift. I will also offer a few packages, to give a detective just the right supplies for a mystery. Some may include a bag and a matching wallet, or maybe even a original bag with the mini, the choice will be yours! I will explain the specifics when I release the sale date.

If you want to know when I put up new posts in the future, you could follow craftdgirlblog on Twitter, or receive updates on my blog by e-mail!

Do you have any suggestions on new crafts you want me to try, or are  you interested in buying a sleuth kit this summer?? Don’t be shy, please comment below!   I would love to hear your feedback!


Sneak Peek!!!

Almost everyone who comes to this blog comes to see something made out of duct tape–mostly to take a look at my well-known Nancy Drew sleuth kit. Well, for about two months I have been working on “the surprise,”and although I am not finished yet I can’t help but tell you what it is….

…This is a picture of an unfinished mini Nancy drew sleuth kit. I decided to try making a mini kit because I have noticed that the originals could be a little too heavy for the younger detectives out there 😉 Preference will definitely make the final decision for the question: “The original bag, or the mini?” To help you out, I’ll give you a little more info (But, of course, you will get even more information when I am completely finished with the mini bag.)

The original bag is still perfect for you if you want all of the card slots, pockets, etc. in the front flap. The mini bag on the other hand, may be too small to fit as many pockets in the front. The mini bag will always have the magnifying glass, though( what is a Nancy Drew bag without the magnifying glass?!). Also, as I said before, the mini bag will be perfect for younger N.D. fans because it is about half the size of the original bag. (When I make the official post for the mini sleuth kit, I will put the exact measurements of both kits so that you can see the size difference, and a picture of them next to each other to show the contrast.)

You may be wondering why I am always mentioning how you can choose which you would like best, and how you can choose your preference…well, coming up this summer our famous Nancy Drew duct tape sleuth kits will be for sale!! Many people have asked to buy the sleuth kits, but I have been so busy I haven’t had time to make any. By this summer, though, I will have some bags made and ready to sell! Both the mini bag and the original will be for sale, so check back soon for more details!
