I may receive a small commission. Thank you!
Dance. Our teenage daughters love to dance, and they also love to create pretty crafts.
So today, I've put together a list of dance-themed craft supplies - so you can get in on the fun, too!
Decorative Foil Sheets - one of the options is a ballet/music theme.
Tiara Buttons (flat back - can be hot glued onto things, too!)
Cupcake toppers (or find another way to use them)
The possibilities are endless! There are literally thousands of items out there to help you create your dance or ballet-themed crafts!
Hope you found this helpful!
If you've found a seller that has impressed you, please let me know which, so we can check it out too!

I've been shopping a lot online, but you do have to be careful and check prices. Some things really work out to be a great deal, and others really don't save you any money, so I really recommend employing ALL of your smart shopping techniques!
Sometimes, I have one large-ish item I want to get that is close to the free shipping threshold, so I look around for things to add in that are inexpensive and make sense to buy.
Here are some of my favorites:
6 pack of toothbrushes (name brand, even!) with caps, for about the same as ONE of these costs at local stores.
Bic ballpoint pens in large packs for unbelievably low prices.
Citronella candles that often drop in price so they are less expensive than what I find locally
The possibilities are endless, but I really try to order things I need and will definitely use, and I recommend you do the same!
A word about international shipping: Lately, my orders have generally been arriving well ahead of schedule - they seem to be building in a lot of extra delivery time to cover worst case scenarios, but most packages arrive much faster.
Amazon's prices change frequently but they're really great about letting you know if an item in your cart has changed price - so if you found one and deliberated about it, you'll know if something changed when you decide to complete your purchase.
Sometimes free shipping offers disappear, so please check carefully before you order. Just remember - you can avoid VAT and other import fees by staying below the $75 tax threshold for any single order! If you do go over, as you will if you're buying a computer, you will see exactly what you'll pay in taxes at checkout. I only do this if I'm actually buying a product that costs more than $75. And I don't add any other small things to these orders, because once you're over, you're over and you'll pay fees on the entire order.
For smaller purchases, I place separate orders that each total under $75.
If you're in the USA and buying a gift for someone in Israel, please follow those guidelines, too - or be prepared to prepay all taxes and fees. You'll see them before you checkout, so don't worry about surprises (and sometimes it's still worth it to pay taxes! I've ordered my share of taxable items). You will need to enter the recipient's ID number at checkout too, so the package can clear customs, whether or not your order is taxable.

iHerb is one of my favorite ways to find products that I can't get in Israel. Or products that may be available in Israel, but at inflated prices.
Right now, there's this sale: 20% off regularly priced Bath and Personal Care from iHerb Brands! CLICK HERE to load the discount into your cart.
If it doesn't load automatically, enter code QEJ101 first and then promo code CARE20 to get the discount (one time per customer - so try to get your order in all at once)! Code QEJ101 will always get you at least 5% off most items on the site!
(code CARE20 is valid until October 13, 2022 at 11:59 PM PT)
Need some ideas for your iHerb order?
Here are just a few things I recommend - several of these are eligible for the extra discount! I'd love to hear what your favorites are:
Pain Relief Cream (the athletes in my house like this one a lot)
Your order of $60 and up will usually qualify for FREE Global Air Locker shipping!
- Keep your order under $75 to avoid paying VAT!!
- Spread out your orders. If you want to buy more than $75 worth of items from one website, and you have the option of splitting your order - DO IT. BUT don't order more than $75 worth on any given day to the same shipping name/address/ID. If you do, customs may combine your orders and charge you. Give it about 3 days between orders. Best to ship to a different name using a different ID for customs, so you can order it all on the same day.
- Always look for the free shipping option - usually it's to a pickup spot.
