1. Ask for supplies for xmas/bday.

2. Trade free supplies with other crafty friends.


I got a TON of beads for xmas last year and just traded a bunch of them with some friends who've also gotten beads as gifts. I also ask friends and family for any clothing they do not want/need, and I use that for reconstruction. But honestly, trading craft stuff with friends has so far been the best. Plus I pretty much ask for any kind of crafting supplies (Knitting stuff, beading stuff, sewing stuff, chainmaille stuff) for bdays and xmas. In fact, now that I got my sewing machine FINALLY! I can focus on just asking for supplies. I don't really have any electronical devices that I want anymore, besides an Ipod touch, mainly so I can have the square but I don't want an iphone...
