Share With Me Sunday: favorite suppliers!

Hello, everyone!

Welcome to another Share With Me Sunday!

Today, I'll be sharing more of my favorite suppliers, and asking you to share yours.

In this post, I shared some of my favorite suppliers, but I didn't share all of them. In no particular order, I present to you...

1.) Fiskars. Oh, Fiskars. They make so many wonderful products! I love their hand drill, and I'm so, so happy with their series of hand punches. I have the 1/16 inch circular punch for adding holes to confetti to make sequins, and also their heart punch, which is perfect for making tiny heart-shaped sequins and confetti. Now I've got my eye on their paper trimmers. But which one? Hmm....

2.) M&J Trimming. I haven't ordered from them yet, but I know several people who have, and I've heard only good things. I had a look at their sequin selection, and it's fairly impressive! I see an order in my future. :)

3.) My elements. Yvonne makes these beautiful, colorful, incredible, and often sparkly, Plexiglass components, and I look for her booth every year at the Bead and Button Show. She also sells colorful rubber rings, which are perfect for chainmaille projects.

4.) The Ring Lord. What a selection! I love the rubber rings, especially the black ones. They're so pretty, and so sturdy! One of these days, I'll have to post some photos of the little handbags I made with those and aluminum rings from Blue Buddha Boutique.

But enough from me -- what are some of your favorite suppliers of all things crafty? Whether you're a beader, a maille expert, a book artist, a knitter, a scrapbooker, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks, and have a sequintastic day... and a spooktastic Halloween!!!


  1. fab post! & fab shares too. oooooooh but where do I begin? I honestly can't! I guess the best are the boring essentials only one company does (such as we are memory keepers & the crop o diles - boring but things you cannot live without) but I want to say things like Derwent for making beautiful pigmented pencils, or melody ross for fab scrapbooking elements, or tim holtz for all the distress and grungey goodness. In all honesty though (as I think you saw on the car boot post) fav suppliers are things not meant to be craft at all that are then altered into something truly unique. Ok we now officially have less than 24 hours - freaking much!! x

  2. I wish there were more car boot sales around here! I love using re-purposed things in my projects, even if it's to create interesting jewelry displays.

    Gahhhh, I'm freaking about NaNo, too! Just where did October go? I could have sworn it just started.

  3. Wow...thank you so very much Sarah for leaving such a lovely compliment on my blog!
    I love hearing what works for everyone - supply and tool and technique wise so thanks for the resourceful post! Honestly...I buy most of my stuff from yard sales when I visit the States. I've found that shipping to Colombia is prohibitively expensive and rarely does my mail get to MY house!

  4. You're very welcome! :)

    Yard sales sound like a great place to get supplies, actually. Wow, I imagine shipping out of the States would be a huge hassle! Most people I know have enough trouble shipping within the state.
