Today I’ll share my Michaels Craft Haul and Die Storage. I’ve not been doing a lot of shopping. Mainly because there is a lot of supplies in my studio already. But on occasion I do need to restock those items that run low. Or if I’m working on a special project pick up what is needed to complete the project.
Thus a run to Michaels came about. Thankful that I happen to be in the Rewards Program because I was able to use a 30% off all regular price items.
What did I get? Well not very much really. But I got a nice 12 in. x 12 in. storage box. This box will be used to store projects in the works.
Foam brushes are always a must as I seem to use these a lot. Do you wash yours out and reuse them? I do and some of mine are looking really ratty. This package has some really cool small daubers that should be fun to use. I didn’t notice that when I purchased the package.
For some reason I loose my paint pallets. Either they get dirty and I drop them in my bucket of water. (There is a bucket by my desk that my stencils go in when I’m working.) Or I just loose them all together. Now that I purchased 6 more I’m sure I’ll find all the other ones.
Refill for my ATG. Seems every time I use that thing I run out of tape and it is at a critical moment and I don’t have extra. Thus I purchased a two pack while it was on my mind.
In February I’ll be teaching a class at a local shop and decided I should get some 12 in. x 12 in. canvases. More details will come later on this project. It was a great price for these. So I’m glad I got them now.
A splurge tool was Starburst nesting dies. These should be fun to use on my projects in the future.
This year I’ve decided that I want to try and journal my weeks in review. So I picked up a 8.5 in x 11 in. The Happy Planner to help with my goal. What I want to do is journal what I made “last week”. I plan to print the photos of my projects and journal about them in this book. If it all goes well I’ll make a video when I work in the journal and share with you.
Lastly in my video I shared how I store my dies. Dollar General has been getting a few dollars at a time from me. The magnetic photo frames are perfect for me to store dies. The front where a photo goes holds the info about the die or could hold a few extra die cuts and the back holds the dies. A little basket holds all of the dies for now. I’m sure this will change when I acquire more dies.
Well that’s the review of Michaels Craft Haul and Die Storage. What have you purchased lately on your shopping sprees? Anything fun that I really should know about? On second thought maybe I shouldn’t know, I have so much stuff now, where would I put something new? lol
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
