it's friday bitches, HOLLA!
you all know that as an asian, my natural born obsession is all things stationary and sanrio. i have a shit load of paper craft things; stuff that i've amassed over the years that gives me a huge crafting boner and most of the time, i will stare at my collection for the pure enjoyment of having all this crafting wonderfulness. it's not weird i do that.
so, let's delve into a few of my favorites:
// my entire craft collection. so much for "a few of my favorites", right? back when i organized my closet, i asked my husband to put up some shelving for my craft supplies. who needs to spend money in Ikea when you have some old pieces of MDF and a husband who's handy:
// washi tape. if you haven't heard of washi tape, you need to crawl out of whatever hole you've been living in and get with the program, stat. washi tape is a stationary addict's best friend and will dress up anything you stick it to. all you blog bitches who love those planners? use an agenda for work? class that bitch up with washi tape! i mean, look at them:
washi tape is made from rice paper so it has great sticking power....it sort of reminds me of fancier masking tape - sticks great but also comes off easily when you peel it off.
seriously, best thing ever. i have a whole pile of washi tape that i have hard time using because they're so pretty:
check out paper plus cloth for great deals on washi tape (and other craft things). obvs, this is a shameless plug for my friend's etsy shop but this is my blog and i do what i want!
// pretty stickers and paper punches. i'm always on the lookout for new supplies - dollar stores sometimes have great stickers on the cheap and those major discounts from Michaels? hell to the yes. i coupon the shit out of Michaels because they think it's ok to extort ridiculous amounts of money from their customers who are obviously stupid enough to pay but dammit, they do have the best stuff #shutupandtakemymoney.
// fancy blank cards. you can sometimes score great deals at discount stores (ie. winners or even on sale at walmart etc) so when you see that shizz, snap that right up. i got a box of blank cards for $6 (regular price is average $15-20) and although i have more than enough cards, it's still not enough, amirite?
// portable paper cutter. nothing ruins the elegance of a handmade card than decorative paper that looks like it's been cut by a toddler. since i don't trust my old lady hands, i use this cutter by Fiskars. exact cuts errtime.
// moleskin anything. iva over at why i'm cray loves moleskin notebooks. she's not the only person who swears by these adorable little notebooks.
what are some of your faovrite things?
are you a craft whore like me?
linking up with hot bitch, amanda.
