(For the record, I do realize two cents doesn’t go as far as it used to…..)
Today, I give you two more cents. (Together, this makes almost a nickel’s worth of advice! Whatta deal!)
Here are things that my craft-closet is never without:
Glue gun & glue sticks (duh.)
Double stick tape
A good adhesive
black & white acrylic paint
(and of course a variety of paint brushes…)
white/opalescent glitter (fine)
Black, Heirloom White, silver & gold metallic spray paints
dry foam blocks
needle nose pliers
medium gauge wire (floral or otherwise)
chicken wire (just a little bit, for floral arrangements)
cardstock (black & white)
white ribbon and black ribbon – both grosgrain and organdy (sheer)
Something else I always have? An orchid or two.
I put them in a variety of containers and then top it off with the aforementioned sheet moss.
They are cheap, nearly impossible to kill, and when the long-lasting blooms are finally spent, a high quality silk orchid stem stuck into a live plant makes it last all the longer. When it’s put into a live plant it’s very hard to tell the that the stem isn’t real. (Again, providing you have a high quality faux orchid…)
Those are my must haves, what are yours?
