WHERE TO BUY CRAFTING SUPPLIES IN THE PHILIPPINES

        I have been on crafting hiatus for a few months and it feels like forever! (OA! But you know what I mean)  I just had too much on my plate that even crafting felt like a chore so I decided to sit back and let my days go by without me trying too much to amuse myself. This is not something new, I’ve had crafting gaps before but not this long. Sometimes, when I have crafter’s block or just plain lazy, I check out online craft stores just to kickstart an idea – you know, you see a nice puncher and you go “That heart would look good on a card!” and then “A bow would look nice on that too!” On some days, I consummate my love affair for crafting tools, buy myself one or two of stuff I already have on the shelf (hoarder alert!), and impatiently wait for the package to come. Believe me, most projects I do are motivated by the arrival of a package!

         I mark 2014 as the year I consciously committed to crafting (See, you’re never too young or too old to craft).  Like most crafters, the Eureka moment came when I personally made my own wedding invitations. Back then, online crafting shops in the Philippines was so scarce. I even remember having to buy some crafting tools overseas since there weren’t available items here or were too expensive. Over two years, I have come up with a roll of online shops in the Philippines, most of them I’ve tried myself.  I’m sharing a few here from the top of my head.

Of course, a lot more specialized sellers have cropped up since I started, mostly selling calligraphy  and journal-ing stuff. But if you’re more into the do-it-yourself crafting stuff, the three above got your back!
