Well there’s another resolution thoroughly broken. Yes I went to the craft store, again(see 2016 Resolutions Update: Round 2). And bought way more than I needed, again.
I just thought I’d go to Joann to buy a couple small sheets of craft foam for a certain project. Then I remembered I had a nice coupon, and they had some things on sale…
…so I came back with all of this.
I also got a pack of soft Velcro. This stuff is also great for doll clothes too.
From the maker’s of my favorite embellishing glue, it’s Aleene’s Tacky Glue! Yay! Okay, I actually needed it for a certain project. You will see why later.
Behold, eco-felt in a wide assortment of beautiful colors!
It was on sale for 33 cents a sheet, and since felt is so useful for small crafts I couldn’t pass it up.
Those were all fairly essential craft supplies, but this is a little different. It’s a pendant, shaped like a tambourine. I found it with the jewelry supplies. Many of the beads and stuff were half off including this.
Honestly, the only reason I got it was because I thought it was the perfect size for dolls. Imagine it, dolls with musical instruments. In fact, I saw several others charms and pendants that also would have worked for dolls.
That’s one of the reasons why I got these. They are 3 mm. faux pearls, also half off. Perfect size for making tiny pieces such as more of those doll necklaces or doll purses I made (see 5 a Week: Jewelry for Dolls and 5 a Week: Cute Felt Bags for Dolls with a Tutorial).
Strange to say, but I also got this to use to make doll stuff. It’s 16 gauge copper wire. What I will make with it, you will have to wait to see.
These wooden dowels will also be used with the wire, but only a couple will be used. The rest I will have to find other uses for. Well as the package says, they have “thousands of uses.” But I just need to find one.
That goes for the rest of these supplies. Whatever I make with it, it will at least be interesting. Look forward to it.
