My Mama is home from Michigan for a very short visit because of my brother’s condition. On a lighter note, it meant some new craft supplies for me. In my part of the world, we don’t have Michael’s, Jo-Ann’s, AC Moore or Hobby Lobby. Yes, it’s so sad that’s why I wish I will have my own craft store here in Cebu someday…I dream big
My loot came in this pretty bag from Jo-Ann’s. I liked the tape measure-like handle. Sorry for the instagrammed pictures. Still too tired and lazy to take out the heavy dslr.
After what seemed like forever, my cuttlebug is finally home. I love, love love my Cuttlebug! I’ll keep you guys posted and maybe show you a video what this little toy can do.
What I usually do for craft supplies and products that aren’t found here in the Philippines, I ask my Mama or brother buy it for me or purchase it online and ship it there in our place in Michigan and they send it to me or send it through balikbayan box (which takes forever!). I get mails regularly from Craft stores like Jo-ann’s or Michael’s and I use their coupons. These embossing folders and dies were on clearance at just $1.97 at Jo-Ann’s and the Cuttlebug was I think 50% off using the coupon at Michael’s. But I think you can use Michael’s coupon at Jo-Ann’s too.
These unassuming little containers are my newest prized possession I will make magic with them pretty soon. Come back and I’ll keep you posted what these are.
That’s why I enjoy DIY & Crafts so much. I get excited what I can do with stuff. If you’re not into crafting, you should definitely try it. If you’re in other parts of the world like the US, Singapore, UK where you have Craft stores all over, you have no excuse not to be doing DIY & Crafts.
What’s your current project?
