*Giveaway Update*

Heather (@DiaperedKnights) was the winner of the @

$20 A.C. Moore gift card!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Crafty GNO hosted by A.C. Moore thanks to a fellow blogger, Melinda Babiak (@LkWhtMomFound) who blogs over at Look What Mom Found. I’m not sure how she did it but she managed to score us a night filled with craft projects, supplies and  enough inspiration to last all summer and then some. Best of all, I got to meet some super awesome people like the amazing Robin Beam(@rdbeader) who is the Director of Education at A.C. Moore and overall master crafter. Seriously, she was so full of ideas and techniques I felt like I was in craft paradise. We also got to meet a relative of the founder of Beacon Adhesive, one of my favorite & essential craft supplies, who so generously provided a bag full of their products.

While we were there, A.C. Moore had two projects for us to work on. Here’s the Rustic Romantic Quilled Flower Wreath…

And the Paper Patchwork Composition Book…

You can find the Rustic Romantic Quilled Flower Wreath and Paper Patchwork Composition Book on A.C. Moore’s newly designed website. While you are there I’m sure you’ll stumble upon other projects to inspire you. I know while I was browsing I found several new projects to add to my Pinterest “Must Make” Board.

Now, I consider myself a crafty and creative person who comes up with plenty of projects on my own but there is something special about sitting down and having everything planned and prepared for you. It really allowed me to take it all in and enjoy the relaxing side of crafting and to learn more about the things that A.C. Moore offers. And boy do they offer a lot. Besides the fact that they pretty much have something for every craft under the sun, they also host in-store events like birthday parties and scrapbooking nights.

This summer they will also have their Summer Fun Wednesday Program going on every week from 1-3 starting June 26th. To kick this off, they will be partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand and will feature a Buy & Decorate activity where customers can purchase a canvas bag for only $1 and decorate it with a custom ALSF look  for free using Simply Spray® fabric paint. All proceeds will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand supporting pediatric cancer research. You can read more about the event HERE.

Here are the other upcoming  FREE events for Summer Fun Wednesday:

July 3, Orb Factory Sticky Mosaics®  Bling Stickers

July 10, Crayola® Model Magic Owls

July 17, Schur-Tech Duck Tape Duckling™ Frames

July 24, Karmin International™ Design a Puzzle

July 31, Melissa & Doug Scratch Art® Tube

August 7,  Fashion Angels® Tapeffiti™

August 14, Polyform® Eraser Clay Sweet Treats

These events are for children ages 4-12 and did I mention that they are FREE!?! A.C. Moore did such a wonderful job entertaining us bloggers for the night I just know that these activities will be a blast for the kiddos!

A.C. Moore were so gracious in hosting and had everything planned out to perfection. To top it off, they sent us home with a bunch of goodies to get crafty with. If you know me at all you know I love to share so I thought that I would spread the love for A.C. Moore by giving away the $20 gift card that they provided. To enter you just need to “like” the Facebook page for Any Given Day Inspiration and then leave a comment on this post telling how you would spend that $20. Enter to win below:
