1. Don’t throw anything out that has any craft or artistic potential. So many things can be repurposed and upcycled.

Books, junk mail, tins and fancy boxes (like jewelry, candy or cookies sometimes come in) …

2. You can mix your own color mist sprays by combining liquid watercolor, water and pearlescent powder in a small spray bottle.

3. Search the internet for recipes of different media like homemade polymer clay and soap.

4. If you make jewelry, learn to make your own findings (clasps, jump rings, eye pins). It’s really easy and fun!
