The TRUTH about finding BLISS in life . . .

We are all looking for a little BLISS in life, right? Well here at Making Life Blissful, I believe the best bliss is when were are spending time with those we love. Sometimes that means putting away the phones and devices that distract us.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love the online world of screens as much as anyone! However, I also believe that we need to find balance between those devices and family time. We still need hands-on creativity and wholesome interactions with our families.

I also know that life is busy, and that is where Making Life Blissful comes in! I find all the items and put together the screen-free activities and you just get to have the fun without all the hassle of searching for everything on your own!

I have 3 older kids and spent many hours with them as a stay-at-home mom when they were young. My husband was gone a lot in our early years training in a doctorate program. I did home preschools, and co-op preschools to keep my kids learning and engaged. I still remember what it was like before every kid had a device. I began blogging at www.makinglifeblissful.com 9 years ago and sharing parenting tips, crafts, recipes, and fun ideas. Creating fun ideas for kids and family is my passion. I created a craft idea called BUGGLES and it went viral online. Many people asked where I got my materials to make Buggles, so I began putting together kits for them and thus, my Etsy shop was born!

That tradition continues now with Busy Boxes, printables, and kids craft kits to make your creative experience with your kids and grandkids easier. My most sought after item is my Busy Box Activity Kit!! Perfect for keeping littles busy with open-ended creativity. They come in many themes to fit the interests of your child. I carefully select fun crafts, stickers, trinkets, and sensory items to bring your child's creativity to life.
Busy Boxes make a unique gift for birthdays, nieces & nephews, and grandchildren too. I love sending them out.

The printables I create are fun for family get togethers, school parties, preschool learning, road trips, and just for fun.

We also have many small craft kits including my KINDNESS BUGGLES CRAFT KITS to help encourage kindness in children and tweens. Make them, name them, share some kindness, and pass it on! Buggles are copyrighted, so please respect that and enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of Etsy!

A BUSY BOX is a box for little kids ages 4 to 10 years old. It's a box full of themed crafts, sticker activities, playdough, trinkets, sensory items, and more. It makes a wonderful gift for kids and a great boredom buster on rainy afternoons. I have many themes available to surprise your little one with.
