Exciting Announcement Today!

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
We’ve been hinting about an exciting announcement…here it is!  From now on, we’re going to color code our packaging in  blue and pink, so you know exactly which kits are for boys only and which ones are for girls only.  Most will be pink of course, because everyone knows girls are better at art.
April Fool’s!  We would never do that :)  We believe everyone is born creative!
