Last week, I found some pocket of time to visit my favorite craft supply store downtown. I was just about to go crazy with all the lovely supplies and the craft ideas that were starting to form in my mind when I told myself to practice some restraint and just buy the essentials.
Clockwise from left: 1. I just mentioned buying the essentials and now I'm starting with an impulse buy! Haha! I spotted this big paper crimper and I just couldn't resist! No more folding paper just so it'll fit in my small crimper! 2. Watching all those Martha Stewart shows have made me long for an X-Acto knife. Glad to have found it finally! 3. This has been another quest for me. I have been searching through sewing suppliers for a rotary cutter that cuts through fabric in vain. Now I can cut straight and non-straight lines with (almost) 100% precision! 4. Now, I just realized I didn't find this in my downtown craft store. I stumbled upon this set of Crayola Fabric Crayons when I went to Bulacan for work last week. 5. Now back to my downtown craft store. I got a set of fabric markers in basic colors. If I had enough moolah, I would have bought all the shades!
I can't think of a way to insert this in this post but...
...I wanted to show how small my old paper crimper was so you can understand (and also so I can justify impulsively buying it!) how ecstatic I am now that I have a biggie! You may remember that I used my baby crimper here.
I can't wait to start using them! Till next time, lovelies!
