Welcome back to another episode of Mika’s Craft Store Report. As always YMMV but Hobby Lobby has the small bottles of craft paint for 30% off, clearance on high quality art markers and various beads/pendants.
Also 50% off their store brand brushes if you were interested in adding to your paint brush collection.March 6, 2022 at 4:20 pm #1655381March 7, 2022 at 6:39 am #1655392
Very cute! I’m not familiar with these kits. Is the background printed in each box half and then you add things from the kit to make the rest of the scene?March 7, 2022 at 7:51 am #1655393

For these ones in particular the backgrounds and any other paper part are printed in the booklet and you cut them out as needed. There’s very little room for error since everything is so small.
Everything comes as parts and you follow the instructions to make buildings/structures/etc and put it together. If you don’t plan on deviating from the instructions it only requires small scissors, an exacto, liquid glue, and a glue stick.March 27, 2022 at 3:09 pm #1656264
Another DIY kit’s done, which means another round of poorly-taken photos of it! Yay!
Close-up-ish photos of the interior of the piece:
It’s a little house that doubles as a lantern. Sadly it doesn’t light up as the batteries are dead and I don’t have any replacements.
Some of the original design was modified since a couple pieces were just way too small to properly cut out or I needed to hide some ugly spots.August 1, 2022 at 11:41 am #1661213
In the event that anyone is looking to buy some more art supplies (because, ya know, you might need that obscure shade of green one day) Utrecht/Blick’s is having a sale right now. Their store-brand stuff is the most discounted.
This is the link to their paint section but there’s other stuff on sale like polymer clay and brushes.November 12, 2022 at 2:14 pm #1664963January 12, 2023 at 5:48 pm #1667201January 12, 2023 at 6:16 pm #1667204

Welcome back to the sporadic Craft Store Report! Today’s Report is that Michael’s has the Decoart Enchanted paints on Clearance (currently $2, regular price $3.49). Some Decoart Pure paint is also on Clearance ($2, regular price $3.99). Other reported Clearance items include Decoart Neon paints, Craftsmart Premium matte metallic paint, Anchor brand embroidery thread and wool, and much more paint than I can list here.
As always Your Mileage May Vary!
Thank you for tuning into the Craft Store Report and Happy Hunting!April 16, 2023 at 7:58 am #1670401dragonmedleyParticipant
Here’s another pair of DIY kits I put together recently.
This one I made a number of modifications with because some of the pieces were a huge pain to put together due to their size.
I’m glad the lighting system worked with this one because it’s otherwise really difficult to see all the details.
Oh, I like that first one!
Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.
I host the feedback lists, which are maintained by drag0nfeathers.

A very belated thank you!
I haven’t had much time to work on DIY kits or PYOs because of work. Instead I’ve been doing some thread craft stuff during my down time at work. These two were worked on at the same time; the sea life bookmark is for a friend and the other bookmark was made using excess threads from previous projects.
AAAANNNDDD I went to Michaels and saw that the Artist Loft level 3 heavy body paints are on clearance! The smaller tubes were marked down to $5 (or $7) and the larger tubes were $9. There were some other odds and ends on clearance in the paint aisle so deffo worth checking out.July 8, 2023 at 9:51 am #1673178
Hello again. Local reporter Mika is back with another Craft Store Report!
When I was at Michaels a few days ago I saw this turntable on clearance for $10! It’s marketed for paint spinning and pouring but it is more than big enough to hold a Windstone PYO figure. It has a fairly smooth surface so it won’t scratch off the paint if you have to move the figure around.
Mileage will vary as to whether or not it’s in your store, but it might be worth checking out anyways.
Also I finished a cross stitch kit and found the perfect frame for it.
Lastly… Funky Chicken plush.July 9, 2023 at 12:33 pm #1673206
The little cross stitch bird is lovely (and the frame looks great with it).July 10, 2023 at 9:33 pm #1673237
Thanks! The bird is from a small series so once I finish the others I bought I’m going to frame them too. It may end up being a while since I have a bunch of other items to finish first.
