I never got too into Black Friday shopping… I mean, I love a deal as well as anyone, but I’m not the type to grab something solely because it’s a deal. I’m a lot more likely to do some comparison-shopping and research on the things I really want rather than buy something in the heat of the moment. So I love the Cyber Monday sales, and as a crafter I’m especially excited about the ones that Consumer Crafts is running starting this Thursday with virtual “doorbusters”, running through next week Cyber Monday, when the entire site is 30% off!
Ever since I found Consumer Crafts, I recommend them to everyone! The prices and selection are fantastic. I’m a mom… and my daughter can only handle so much of me perusing *all* the aisles of the things I’m interested in. ;) A quick search of their online inventory finds me exactly what I’m looking for, so it’s also a time-saver. Several of the projects you find here at Happy Hour are made with products I got on the Consumer Crafts website.
I’m full-swing into Christmas Crafting right now, and there are a bunch of supplies at Consumer Crafts that caught my eye! I’m not much of a cook, so I love the idea of this gingerbread house kit! I always remember the gingerbread village we made in school when I was a kid, and I’ve always wanted to make another.
About all the baking I do this time of year is cookies… and I think this little make-your-own Cookie Plate is a fun idea to do with your kids!
I also have some ideas for some glittery ornaments this year – Consumer Crafts has a big selection of clear glass ornaments to have fun with.
They also have great prices on the stuff I use all the time, like this awesome Sculpey sampler pack.
(I love Sculpey clay – if you’re an addict like me, be sure to take a peek at my polymer clay projects!)
I also have a thing for jewelry-making, and Consumer Crafts has a huge selection of beads and findings. My daughter’s birthstone is turquoise… I’ve got my eye on some of these turquoise beads:
