Crafting Essentials

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I am really into DIY projects and crafts of almost any kind.  I have drawers full of odds and ends and things that I feel like I might “someday” need. As nice as it is to have all of those specialty items at my fingertips, crafting is a lot like baking in that there are some basic items you need to keep on hand. Cyd, from The Sweetest Occasion recently posted this list of what she considers to be crafting essentials.


I think it’s a pretty comprehensive list. I also keep all of these items on hand, although I don’t really have a preferred brand of paint. There are three other things that are on my personal list: a sharp pair of scissors, a hot glue gun and a spray can of multi-purpose gloss spray paint.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
