Creating these subscription boxes has become a real passion project for me - I believe that making things, being creative, being in tune with the seasons, are all so important in living the best lives possible.

This quarter's box, is our 10th box. The theme is texture and it can be made in a small space as long as you have access to an oven. Children can be involved under supervision.

You can either buy the box as a one off, or save money and sign up for a quarterly subscription.

Every three months you will receive a box containing the things you need - all supplies are full size and professional quality, they are the same brands and ranges that we use ourselves. The techniques involved change each quarter - so that you will never feel that you are doing the same thing over and over again.

Not only is Studio Box a fun treat to receive each season, but you get to learn new skills, create beautiful and practical things and take a bit of time away from the bustle of the day.

Full, easy to follow instructions are included in each box - they are all suitable for beginners and for people who don't think of themselves as creative, as well as for more confident crafters.

If you have any queries email Jane@snapdragonlife.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Studio box*****Posted by Penny L on July 15 2018 at 14:35My first Snapdragon studio bos was amazing. Firstly, it is incredible value for money containing paints, postcards, notebooks, wrapping paper and lots more. Everything was lovely and beautifully presented. The step by step instructions were clear and inviting. I have had so much fun drawing my meadows and because it was all so clear it gave me the confidence to try, and even to branch out on my own. If you are still wavering about trying a box, I say go for it! You’ll be pleased you did!

Words matter.  Words matter so much. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yesterday I walked around a new local community garden that I am to be involved in.  I walked the site with Lauren @herbal_homestead (who looks after @katgoldin ‘s market garden at the Gartur Farm School) who is the permaculture consultant for the project.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The words at the top of this post were the words that were tumbling about as we walked along the stream that edges the plot and discussed the contours and what the potential is for this new space.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I have missed those words a lot.⁠⠀
Elderberry vinegar, a brilliant natural immunity booster and treatment for sore throats, is steeping in my cupboard at the moment - the colour is so vibrant it is obvious that it MUST be good for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It is one of the things you learn to make in the Simple Herbal Apothecary course in the Studio Club. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It is really funny how having a Pay What You Can option for membership has made me feel that I can talk about what you get in the Studio Club without feeling all 'exclusive' (I hate that word because, when you think about it, it actually means that some people are excluded and that we are fine with that).⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The Pay What You Can option has been really popular - second only to the Full Membership - which makes me very happy. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I've had a lot of emails from people who had been looking at joining the Studio Club for a while but couldn't justify the cost - because unemployment or illness or caring for others restricts their budget - but who have now been able to join.  So if that sounds like you the details are all on the front page of the website - snapdragonlife.com.⁠⠀

⁠⠀
Time.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yesterday I asked a question about luxury and the thing that came up again and again in answers was 'time'.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Time to just be.  Time to do things for ourselves. Time to be creative or read. Time to focus.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It made me think - that if we see time is our greatest luxury, why do we squander it so?  I know I do.  I scroll.  I dither. I catch myself almost deliberately doing nonsensical things that waste time to the point that it completely disappears.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give me an unexpectedly free evening and my natural tendency is to waste half of it deciding what I want to do MOST.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(This is why I created the Plan your Dream Life workbook for myself - just so that I would have a list of things that I knew I had chosen to do when time appears - if you don't have this workbook already you can get it by signing up to my newsletter list Snapdragonlife.com.)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What is your idea of luxury?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I stumbled across a discussion about luxury on a post the other day. It was about whether you could crave luxury in your life if you were also set in “overthrowing the capitalist systems our world is based on”.⠀
⁠⠀
In some ways it was hilarious, and shows what a muddle we get into, but It really made me think about what I count as luxuries in my life  They certainly aren’t what the commenters on the original post defined as luxury - the fancy sports car, the designer brand names, expensive toiletries. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Rather, my idea of luxuries are things I want in my everyday life.  Proper coffee, clean sheets for the weekend, tomatoes still warm from the sun - perhaps most importantly, the luxury of time to do nothing more than stare upwards through bright leaves . . .⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What about you?⁠ what are your luxuries?⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Messy edges.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Pretty much everything in the House Garden and Studio Meadow will stand until Spring now.⁠ I will leave it alone. ⠀
⁠⠀
For in my head I'm not really growing teasels, I'm growing gold finches. 
Yesterday, as I headed down through the meadow to light the studio stove, were dozens feeeling atop the teasel heads.
It is the time of the year to embrace the beauty in decay.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
To look at the soil regenerating.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The appreciate the beauty of a good compost heap -even when it is composting the cosmos that you had hoped would bloom for a couple of more weeks.
Yesterday the doors of the Studio Club opened up to new members again. ⠀
⠀
If you want to engage more with the natural world, live a more seasonal life, learn how to grow things, make things and also hear good news about inspirational people making a positive difference to the world - then this is the Club for you! ⠀
⠀
There are now three ways of becoming a member - a Full Membership which includes physical products, a Digital Membership and a Pay What You Can Membership. You can find out more about them by clicking though my profile or at Snapdragonlife.com. ⠀
⠀
In less than 24 hours over half the Full Memberships sold out - so if you are thinking of signing up for one of those then I would do it sooner than later. ⠀
Nettles and docks and tansy and meadowsweet. ⁠⠀
Heather and willow and onion skins.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The journey through plant colours this year is coming to fruition.  Out of frame is a striped jumper on my needles.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I am hoping to have enough yarn to make something for a newly arrived baby - all the energy of the Scottish hills in something to wear.
