Craft Bloggers Unite 11/28/08

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Friday 28 November 2008 at 9:27 am


Today is the official beginning of the holiday sales season, and while I’m usually more of a web shopper, even I am feeling the strong pull of the sales that are going on off-line, especially those at my local Michael’s craft store. I honestly don’t have much I really “need” at the moment, but with 25% off your total purchase including sales items, I think this is a good time to stock on staple items like yarn, ribbon, jewelry findings, and such. One lesson I’ve learned over the years crafting is that it is important to have a fully stocked supply of craft materials. I hate it when I am in the middle of creating and don’t have some particular item. Many other jewelry making and other hobby supply vendors are having wonderful sales right now, so it may be a good time to stock up on those often-used items. Then you can be free to create like these other crafty bloggers!
