Today I did it big.  I took the craft queen shopping for supplies with me!  My doting mother. I dipped into my savings because you have to spend money to make money, right.  No worries though because EVERYTHING was 50% off except for one item that was $10!!  Amazing!  I impress myself with my shopping skills.. Lol

My total came to $86 and I walked out with a slew of supplies.  I set out with $100 and I still came out with change…until I spent it, on more supplies nonetheless.  Total I spent $101.00.  I am now more invested than ever.  Having the supplies boosts my confidence and that makes all the difference in the world.  Let’s have a look …

supply haul #3-NYAC

I was able to purchase multiple holiday stamps for pennies on the dollar.  I purchased a regular sized mixed media pad of paper and then a larger pad of watercolor paper.  In this photo, you will see colored pencils which I took back to exchange for watercolor pencils.  I had originally had those in my hand but put them down because this pack had more.  Unfortunately, they were not watercolored.  Next of course is the distressed inks by Tim Holtz.  I am slightly obsessed with his products.  They really enhance any project you are working on.

To bind I needed some strong thread.  We opted to get hemp rope and a sturdier cord to use to secure the journals.  Both are shown in the photograph above.  My mother has a natural crafting sense that I seemed to miss out on.  She makes shopping for supplies a lot less overwhelming.  I am so appreciative of her help.

Here we have a slightly larger bundle featuring some threading needles, charms, glue, stamps, a package of designer paper and a sticker booklet of phrases that can be placed on anything to add positivity to it.

I got a ton of items for $80 and some change.  I forgot to capture the rest of my haul before tearing into it.  I received a donation the other day from Beckie from Beckies Mental Mess that contributed to purchasing my supplies.  Thank you for your generous donation.  If you would like to donate please do so through the donations page.

    Stationery stores and craft stores. My husband sits on the bench outside while I ooh, and aah, at all the things I’d like to buy. I use various crafting supplies: papers, natural things like twigs, wire, beads, felt, paint, coloured pencils, ribbons, etc. I don’t have one particular type of craft I do, because I like to try new things too.

    1. That is how I am. I just love anything to do with paper and pretty stuff. I would love to see something you have made.

        I’m not sure how to do that, but maybe an idea for a future post!
