Since I've been busy with out boat operation for few days, I decided to take a few days off and concentrate on the blogging side of my life again. Already worked on my friends blog, as I do the visual layout and appearance on her blog, and decided why not do a little post about my supply check up.
For most this might not be in any interest, how I keep up with my supplies, but since I can't post my pallet terrace-post just yet, I though why not post just little something.
This is my set-up for my first supply-check. You just need a cup of coffee or tea, piece of paper and get going. I tend to do all my crafts, check-ups etc. while listening to Inspirational Music
. Mine of course is fantasy-themed, since I'm a huge nerd when it comes to fantasy. I also have read, that this kind of inspirational music, is scientifically proven to amp up your tasks. There are thousands of inspirational music playlists on Youtube which you can listen to. Give it a go!
Anyways, I tend to keep up with my supplies, since I hate nothing more than starting a project, just to find myself missing something in the middle of it. Or if I get Oh so excited about some craft DIY, and want to get my hands on it to make it, I can't event begin it, since I would be missing some element or tool that it requires. Nothing is more frustrating. So, I have a list in my blogging-folder, where I check once or twice a month ALL my supplies. It's also handy to have your laptop next to you, so u can order stuff online on the go, as you find out you need some crafting supplies.
"These strings are made from recycled material"
Also, as a site-note, I have to talk about this string that I found of few months ago from a local cheap-store. These strings are made from recycled material, are great for any projects, and cost little over a dollar. Or just 1 € if you live in Finland. I have actually gathered a ridiculous amount of it in different color to our cabin. Which is kind of sad, but you never know when you are going to need it in huge amounts.
"Doesn't require heat to harden"
Also I dipped into clay-crafts a month ago, and fell in love with these Staedtlers FIMO Air Clays. Also, cheap as hell for 500g (17.63 oz). It air dries, which means you don't have to burn it for it to harden, just wait a little bit. I have actually tried to heat it up to speed the hardening process and it works, but it's great to have a clay which doesn't require heat to harden. It also comes in few colors which is handy. White, Classic (ClayColor) and Terra (more red-ish color)). You can get this clay also as microwave-version, which means you can harden it in microwave. Handy don't you think.
