Amazon may just be taking over the world.  If you don't have Amazon Prime you are the minority.  Although I also like to buy from small shops, sometimes you can't beat the prices and convenience found on Amazon.  I also buy a lot from Michaels.  Didn't realize they sold bulk until recently.

#1  Re-usable Popsicle Sticks for Resin Projects

These are much better for our environment because we're not cutting down trees, we are recycling and re-using.  The sticks have a slight bend so if you did forget to wipe it off, once dry, it will peel off after giving a slight bend to the stick.

#2  Double Decker Lazy Susan

I originally bought this for my pantry but quickly decided I liked it better for my craft room to store my paints.  I keep it on my work desk and just give it a quick turn to find the paint I need.

#3  Alcohol Ink Set

Using alcohol ink in resin art at least once is a must.  Alcohol ink provides your resin projects with a watercolor effect and more transparency.  Can usually find these on sale on Amazon and get a great price.

#4  Resin

In Dallas, there is a small vinyl shop where they sell discounted resin.  BUT when I compared the prices to Amazon, the prices were the same and with Amazon, I get free shipping and don't have to drive anywhere. I've bought several kinds off Amazon to give different kinds a try.  Here is my favorite:

#5   Craft Light

The ceiling light just never seems to be enough for me.  I recently purchased this desk light and it has made a huge difference in my ability to see as well as take product photos for my business!

#6  USB Wall Charger & Surge Protector

To avoid constantly having to unplug my printer, cricut, bubble blower, charging cords, electronic scale, my record player... I bought 2 of these, one for each side of my room.  No more unplugging, dead batteries or worries about storms frying my office equipment!  These are a must have!

 #7  Door Hanging Shoe Organizer

I have one of these on both sides of my closer door.  My glitters, spray paints, vinyl rolls and more call these home.  It is so convenient and reduces so much clutter in my little room.

 #8  Mini Cricut Press

If you use HTV vinyl, this is a MUST have!  I was using my iron for a while because I kept telling myself I didn't need anything else.  Then I ended up buying the big press.  Then I decided to try the little one.  I have gotten so much more use out of the mini press.  It is so convenient and lightweight.  I liked mine so much I bought one for my mom last mothers day.  She sews every day and LOVES it too.

#9   Tablet Stand Holder & Keyboard

Bought this recently and I love it.  I use it outside my craft room as well. It allows me to multi-task at my crafting desk and still be able to communicate with my phone.  I also bought the bluetooth keyboard and I use them both often.  Was not sure I would like the keyboard but I do, what a difference it has made in my workability via my iPad.

 #10  30 Drawer Storage

This purchase was way over due. And I should've bought 2 because the one I have filled up fast!  It stores so much and is good quality.  I have it sitting on the shelf right next to my craft desk and I love it.
