I love me some crafty bargains- and I found quite a few at my (new) local Tuesday Morning in New Jersey. And I wanted to share the bounty with you! Take a look at the video: I’m looking forward to visiting the Watchung Tuesday Morning again to see what crafty bargains await. Where do YOU go to get crafting supplies on a discount?

Adult coloring is still a raging trend, so we crafters can never have enough markers! I picked up the Sign Brush Felt Tip Markers from Pentel Arts at my local Target for about $20, so I thought I’d give them a go. The first thing you need to know about the Sign Brush Felt Tip Markers is that the nib is SMALL. Kinda super tiny, in fact. This is actually a good thing, though- it means that is good for […]
Today I’ve got a paper craft for you- Paper Feathers. I got this idea when I was walking with my daughter in a National Park- we saw these lovely feathers on the trail, but taking them out as a no-no. So we took pictures instead, and re-created them with a few simple supplies. This project appeared on the PBS show Hands On Craft For Kids- I’ve been lucky enough to be the host for 3 seasons now. Here’s the clip […]
I’m still settling into my new space, and it was time to start orgazing my stamp pads. My Distress Stain Stamp Pads sat it a drawer in my library card catalog. But I foud that if they were out of sight, they were out of mind. Time to upgrade my storage and organization! Since my move from Ohio, I’d gotten a Stamp N Storage case for my regular stamp pads.

From the Imagine Crafts website: Precision craft glue that eliminates the need to purchase separate adhesive, bottle and needle for unclogging. This all-in-one is the glue […]
ORIGIAL POST SEPT 2008; UPDATED July 2017. I’ve been playing around with my bottle cap jewelry, and the question of what to put on top has perplexed me. I like Diamond Glaze, but it’s really only good for a thin layer. I wanted something more dimensional and shiny, something more glass-like. I played around with using melted UTEE, but at the thickness I was pouring, I was getting air bubbles and some scorching. Not the right product for the job. […]
Hey crafty friends! In honor of Independence day, I dusted off this post from June 26 2014 and made you a quick video. We still enjoy making these for parties…and US! The other day I saw a super cute cookie treat idea for the 4th of July on CakeSpy– you make cookies with Pop Rocks Candy and then roll the creamy filling with more Pop Rocks for a “firecraker” type of effect when you eat them. I loved the idea- but I needed […]
