Last year I did a post showing you all the goodies I bought at the Make It craft show. I went to the show this year but I never got around to posting about it. A good time was had, and workshops were undertaken, and goodies were purchased.
The workshops included learning about a fantastic thing called a Coiling Gizmo – a blog about that is coming up in the next day or two, and a quick one learning how to decoupage. Paper-mache egg, scraps of pretty paper, and lots of glue. Sticky fingers, but a very enjoyable process.
I already had a thing for collecting wooden shapes, for possible future projects. For painting, for pyrography (which I started, but haven’t done much with yet), for doodling. Learning decoupage just added another good reason to have lots of wooden shapes. And luckily there are a couple of different stalls at Make It that sell lots of pretty wooden pieces.
There was also a stall doing workshops for wood block fabric printing, but we somehow missed that one. I did buy myself a starter kit, which I might even get around to using some time soon.
I picked up the usual silly amounts of pretty paper…
…some general beading supplies…
…some stamping supplies & gifts…
…and some general crafting bits and pieces.
I also picked up a few extra bits, but they’re part of the whole Coiling Gizmo blog post that’s coming up.
