Consumer Crafts online store - #craftbasics

My DIY supplies from Consumer Crafts online craft store have arrived! I've been wanting to make something for weeks now but procrastinating on a supply trip. I scraped together a bunch of hodge podge materials to make a bracelet last week. Now I can make better ones and work on some other projects!

Through February 4th, there's a sale going on so it's a good time to stock up. The more you buy, the more you save! This is a great way treenergize your space which is what I did. I bought supplies to compliment what I already had on hand and I ordered some experimental products.

Buy more save more


I combed the Craft Basics section thoroughly. I looked through every single kind of craft and put stuff in my cart and pulled stuff out of the cart until I found the perfect mix to last several craft attacks.

I'm on a jewelry making kick so I was specifically drawn to the cord, thread & wire category section. I also hung out with the glitter & sequins and fabric crafting. In the end, I spent roughly $50 and waited but not to long!

I placed my order last week on Tuesday and my items arrived on Saturday. Pretty good turnaround time for standard shipping.

Now let me introduce you to my new DIY supply haul!

Green sequins

You have to order these in packs of 12. I'm going to string them all together (it's therapeutic, I hope) and see how much I have to work with. They could become my next bracelet or some bling on the shoulders or elbows of a top.

Thing-A-Ma Jig

I love the name and I'm really on a jewelry making kick so I bought this to bend wire. A jewelry maker friend told me I can make a nameplate and now that's all I can think about. Of course, with the purple wire because of my deep affection for the color purple.

Gold findings kit

I can make earrings. Brooches. Rings. Necklaces. Yeahyuh!!! (these were not in the basics section but I think they should be)

Wire coiling kit

More twisting and turning of jewelry.

Rhinestone setter and rhinestones

Isn't this a DIY staple? Expect to see a lot of sparkle!

Tiger iron-on

Easy peasy DIY when you have so many craft ideas and you don't know what to do or have time to really get into an involved craft. Iron-on the tiger, baby!

Pearl pens

Excited to see how these work. I've never seen them before. The shape of the applicator makes the paint come out in bead shape. I plan to try it on the loafers using the gold pen then add gold glitter to top it off. Too much?

That's my haul plus a few extras. I'm already looking ahead to next month's giveaway! Stay tuned..
